When it came to finding a showrunner for ABC’s “Inhumans,” Marvel Television kept their search in the family. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Scott Buck — who is currently helming Netflix’s “Iron Fist” as executive producer — will be showrunner for the upcoming “Inhumans” television series.
The first two episodes of “Inhumans” will air as one IMAX presentation, lasting approximately 80 minutes. The first two episodes of “Inhumans,” which will be shot entirely with IMAX cameras, will screen in 1,000 IMAX theaters across 74 countries. Additionally, select sequences from subsequent episodes of “Inhumans” will also be shot using IMAX cameras.
In addition to “Iron Fist,” Buck is known for his work on the last three seasons of Showtime’s “Dexter.” His past credits also include “Six Feet Under,” “Rome” and “Coach.” With his new role as executive producer on “Inhumans,” he’ll stick with Marvel Television, though he’ll shift from Netflix to ABC.
“Inhumans” is not regarded as a spinoff of “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” The ABC series — currently in its fourth season — introduced the concept of the Inhumans to television and includes a number of Inhumans, like Quake, in its cast. It’s noted that this IMAX deal does not replace the feature film that was previously pulled from the schedule.
Created in 1965 by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the Inhumans are a race of super-humans with “diverse and singularly unique powers,” as described in the official announcement. The group of heroes have recently seen a higher profile at Marvel on the comics page and on the small screen, as “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” has introduced the concept and included many new Inhumans in its cast. Just today, Marvel announced a new space-faring “Inhumans” ongoing series from writer Al Ewing and artist Jonboy Meyers set to debut in 2017.
After debuting in IMAX theaters on or around September 1, “Inhumans” will premiere on ABC on Tuesday, September 26, 2017. “Inhumans” is also expected to air all eight episodes of its first season uninterrupted on the following Tuesdays.
