Marvel’s Inhumans series to have Game of Thrones’ Iwan Rheon as Maximus

Marvel’s Inhumans is going to be the next big television project from ABC and Marvel, and it’s premiering in the fall of 2017. Deadline reports that they have cast Iwan Rheon, known for playing the sadistic Ramsay Snow in HBO’s Game of Thrones, as Maximus.

In the comics, Maximus is the younger brother of Black Bolt, the ruler of the Inhumans. He’s a genius and wants to take over Black Bolt’s spot as the ruler.

“Iwan’s ability to be charming, roguish and still completely unexpectedly dangerous were all the different sides we needed to bring the character to life,” said Jeph Loeb, Head of Marvel Television and executive producer of Inhumans. “We’re thrilled to have him on board.”

The Marvel’s Inhumans series will contain 8 episodes and will premiere on IMAX screens for the first two episodes starting on September 4, 2017 . It will then air on ABC. Scott Buck is the showrunner, but first viewers will get to see how he does with Marvel’s other series, Iron Fist, when it premieres in March on Netflix.

“Maximus is a complex character, Buck said. “Likable, charming, tragic and villainous all in the same moment, and I’m very excited to have someone of Iwan’s considerable talent.”

The Inhumans are a race of superpowered humans that were created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965.
