With just a few months left until the first two episodes of Inhumans debuts in IMAX theaters September 1, we haven't seen much from the series, except for an Inhumans teaser that had the Roayl Family in turmoil. Today we get a new banner from director Roel Reine, which reveals our first look at the Inhumans homeland of Atillan. Marvel and ABC have also unveiled a new poster, while announcing that the series will premiere on September 29, following the exclusive IMAX theatrical run.
The image debuted on Roel Reine's Twitter, with the director teasing that he wishes he could show and tell more about this series, but he can't just yet. It's believed that the first full trailer won't debut until San Diego Comic-Con, but that has yet to be confirmed, and it isn't even known if the show will have a presence in San Diego, although it certainly seems likely. There was also leaked footage from last month that revealed the first look at the massive canine Lockjaw from the upcoming series.
Marvel's Inhumans explores the never-before-told epic adventure of the royal family including Black Bolt, the enigmatic, commanding King of the Inhumans, with a voice so powerful that the slightest whisper can destroy a city. After the Royal Family of Inhumans is splintered by a military coup, they barely escape to Hawaii where their surprising interactions with the lush world and humanity around them may prove to not only save them, but Earth itself. The legendary comic book series will be brought to life in a way that has never been done before, as a version of the first two episodes will be shown globally in IMAX theaters for a two-week period beginning September 1, 2017.
