Marvel’s Inhumans new First Look description – ABC Upfronts

Marvel's Inhumans

ABC and Marvel have not yet released a trailer for Marvel’s Inhumans. But they did reveal the first-look trailer for audiences at the ABC Upfronts event at the Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall in New York City.

Don’t continue if you don’t want spoilers for Marvel’s Inhumans.

In the first look, we hear the same introduction from Maximus (Iwan Rheon) as heard in the teaser trailer. But this time, we see bits and pieces of the royal family at home and on Earth.

The scene begins with the Earth, moon, and Attilan, where Black Bolt, Medusa, and their family reside. It then cuts to the family eating dinner together. Cut to Medusa and Black Bolt walking down the stairs with Maximus behind them. It then shows Maximus in front of a crowd and then cuts to him with armed soldiers aimed at a group of people (the elders). Next, we see them dead.

Crystal is being taken away from the palace. Medusa is seen being restrained with Maximus looking at her. Maximus sits in a middle of a dome and is then with his men.

Cue Black Bolt’s face. Lockjaw and Black Bolt teleport to Earth in the middle of the street, which causes a car accident. Black Bolt looks concerned.

We then see Karnak (Ken Leung) in a forest. Maximus walks down another dark hall. Someone (either Black Bolt or Maximus) is jumping from a cliff into the water. Soldiers are roaming in the forest looking for someone with their guns out.

Black Bolt is wearing a normal casual suit and running in the streets.

We go back to an unidentified inhuman running in the forest from explosions and gunfire. Then action scenes of Karnak and Gorgon fighting against soldiers in the forest.

Black Bolt is seen again in his casual suit being attacked by police. Then more of Maximus. More of Black Bolt. Then Inhumans logo.

Initial Reaction

Karnak, Black Bolt, Lockjaw, and Maximus look pretty good. Rheon, who has played intense villains before (Game of Thrones), looks the most intriguing in the first look video. He will probably be a great villain in the series, and I’m excited to see more of him. As for Karnak and Black Bolt, their costumes and makeup look better than what people initially were worried about. The CGI on Lockjaw for that brief moment looked pretty good.

No clue what their powers are from this first look video.

Crystal’s scene was too brief to comment, but I am concerned about Medusa’s look, including her hair. When her photo was first released, many fans were disappointed in how Medusa’s look came out. Nothing has changed from that. The hair is a bit distracting in the scenes she was in. The brief scenes look good, especially the ones with Maximus.

Overall, the first look was short. So hopefully, Marvel will release a longer version for the fans.
