It is not long until Marvel's Inhumans premieres in IMAX, and the director has promised plenty of Easter eggs for eagle-eyed Marvel fans. Director Roel Reine claims he loves Easter eggs, so when setting out to share his vision of Marvel's Royal Family, he also set out to try and give plenty for fans to discover when it comes to the Inhumans in the MCU.
Reiné talked about how one of the biggest Easter eggs will involve the Kree language. Fans of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have seen the Kree language before in the writings of Phil Coulson, but Inhumans takes it one step further by building the hieroglyphic language into the very walls of the Inhuman city of Attilan, which is located on the moon.
Sitting down to discuss the upcoming event series with Collider, Reiné again mentioned his love for Easter eggs, and for what fans can expect when it comes to the series making reference to the alien civilization known as the Kree:
"I tried to put a lot of Easter eggs in and a lot of Marvel things in. And one of the things I’m really proud of is that the The Kree created the Inhumans. The Kree is kind of the Gods of the Marvel universe for a lot of characters. And The Kree have a special language. A special style of language. So I had the art director and you will see it when you see the other sets. I had the art director build The Kree language in like an hieroglyphe way."
Building an Inhuman city is no small feat and the steps the production has taken have allowed them to add secrets to the show as an added incentive for those who plan to tune in. Reiné related a story about how fans photographed a monolith on set that had been covered with the alien writing, and soon after the image appeared online where it was already a topic of discussion with regard to its connection to the larger MCU.
It sounds as if references to the Kree won't be the only connection to the MCU. Searching for hidden clues and references should give fans unfamiliar with these characters an incentive to watch, while the sight of Black Bolt and his family should be enough for longtime fans.
Marvel's The Inhumans premieres in IMAX on September 1, and on ABC September 29.
