Marvel’s ‘Inhumans’ Gets a New Synopsis

A new synopsis has been released for Marvel’s Inhumans.

 The official synopsis, which appeared on SpoilerTV, gives us a look at the main overarching plot point of the show:

“After the Royal Family of Inhumans is splintered by a military coup, they barely escape to Hawaii where their surprising interactions with the lush world and humanity around them may prove to not only save them, but Earth itself.”

This synopsis now fully confirms that the filming in Hawaii isn’t merely a backdrop for another place, (like when companies have filmed scenes in London when the movie is set in Birmingham), but is where the Inhumans have fled to from their homes.

Traditionally, the Inhuman royal families live in the city of Attilan, a city that is far more technologically advanced than other cities of it’s era. However, the synopsis indicates it comes under heavy threat, which ties into the events of Captain America: Civil War and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in which people with superhuman abilities are required to register with the government, under the Sokovia Accords. We saw in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. that Inhumans were being hunted and persecuted, heavily feared by mankind as out of control and dangerous.

While there’s no confirmation that the Inhumans television series will tie in to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., it would be a shame to miss out on combining the already established Inhumans from ABC’s other Marvel show to their newest and never-before-told story of the Inhumans Royal Family. However, at the same time these new Inhumans need time to establish themselves to the audience, and to be developed as characters and for their own story.

The comics have also often followed Maximus, the Inhuman King Black Bolt’s younger brother, as he tries to manipulate his way into the throne – fans are hopeful that this will be explored in the show, and that Maximus will take advantage of the current situation the Royal Family find themselves in.

Iwan Rheon (MisfitsOur GirlVicious) has played a similar role in a character that has exploited his way towards a throne, Ramsay Bolton in Game of Thrones – so he has proven himself as able to play frightening and manipulative roles.

Inhumans has had final casting confirmed, and is currently filming. It is scheduled for a release date of September 1, 2017 in IMAX and then will continue on ABC on September 26, 2017.
