Marvel's Inhumans reveals a statue of Lockjaw, the giant teleporting dog-like companion to the Royal Family, during Comic-Con International in San Diego. Marvel Studios first extended its Marvel Cinematic Universe into television with the premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC in 2013, but the TV side of the superhero world has greatly expanded since then. ABC aired two seasons of Agent Carter and is preparing to launch the Inhumans mini-series later this year - the first TV show ever to be released first in IMAX, with the series premiere and second episode hitting theaters Labor Day Weekend. Not to mention, Netflix's growing corner of the MCU totals four separate series, with two more debuting this year.
Since Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 5 will premiere later in the season than previous years, ABC is focused on promoting Inhumans, with the first trailer arriving earlier this year - in addition to a number of character posters highlighting the Inhuman Royal Family. The upcoming ABC series is also a major focus for the network and Marvel TV at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend. One such way that Marvel is promoting Inhumans is by unveiling a statue of Lockjaw, who has quickly become a fan-favorite for those looking forward to the ABC series.
San Diego Comic-Con doesn't officially open to the public until Thursday July 20th this year, but Wednesday night the convention holds a preview event for members of the press during which they're allowed a sneak peek at the show floor. At Comic-Con's preview night, the Marvel booth (#2329) unveiled a statue of Lockjaw from Inhumans, take a look:
As evidenced by the trailer for Inhumans, Lockjaw will be a key member of the Royal Family - brought to life by CGI effects - and an ally to the King of Attilan, Black Bolt (Anson Mount), who flees to Hawaii after a coup by his brother Maximus (Iwan Rheon). Other members of the Royal Family to be featured in Inhumans are Medusa (Serinda Swan), Gorgon (Eme Ikwuakor), Crystal (Isabelle Cornish), Karnak (Ken Leung), and Triton (Mike Moh).
Of course, the Lockjaw statue at the Marvel booth isn't the only way ABC is promoting in Inhumans at San Diego Comic-Con. The upcoming series has its own panel at the convention this weekend, held Thursday evening, in order to bring fans even more from the Inhuman Royal Family. Whether Marvel debuts a new trailer for Inhumans, other new footage, or reveals anything else from the series remains to be seen. But, for those attending Comic-Con who don't make it to the panel, you can check out the Lockjaw statue instead.
Inhumans debuts in IMAX on September 1, 2017, and on ABC on September 29.
