Marvel Television has been the saving grace for Inhumans. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. helped introduce the genetically enhanced race, but it was only with the help of IMAX that Inhumans was brought back to life after losing its place on the Marvel Studios slate. While initially looked upon as a bad sign for the project, this new opportunity has allowed for the Inhumans to get eight hours of content in a single year, plus come out a full two years earlier.
Production on the ABC mini-series is officially underway in Hawaii and has allowed for a number of set photos to emerge. Even though these are unofficial pieces of marketing, the photos have continued to generate buzz for the series. Marvel joined in on the fun this week by revealing the official logo for the Inhumans series, and with it now being spotted in poster form, more announcements could be coming sooner rather than later.
Reel News Hawaii has revealed the poster for the series, which strictly utilizes the aforementioned official logo. While it also makes a point of highlighting how Inhumans is the first of its kind (thanks to its IMAX debut and subsequent network run), the presence of the poster at CinemaCon could point to this merely being the beginning of related announcements throughout the week.
Since shooting is still in the early stages, it may be unlikely that a true promo is released. That said, as this convention is made to highlight upcoming properties for other studios, it would be a smart move by IMAX to promote this series to try to strike similar deals with other big name networks.
If no promo does arrive, this could be an opportunity for Marvel and IMAX to unveil the first official look at the cast. So far Black Bolt (Anson Mount), Medusa (Serinda Swan), Crystal (Isabelle Cornish), and a pre-CGI Lockjaw have been spotted, but the rest of the Royal Family has remained unseen. CinemaCon would be a great place to reveal official looks at all of the characters and their costumes, and be enough to hold fans over until a promo is ready.
Then again, there could be no further announcements coming from CinemaCon for this project. Typically it would be strange for a project to be featured like this and not get some other press, neither IMAX nor Marvel are scheduled to have panels at the convention. Maybe they plan to drop a small bit of info outside of the con, but this is far from a certainty at this point. Stay tuned to Screen Rant for further updates from CinemaCon to see if Inhumans offers a surprise.
Inhumans comes to IMAX theaters for two weeks starting Friday, September 1, prior to its television debut on Tuesday, September 26 on ABC.
