News about Marvel's upcoming "Inhumans" TV series has been streaming in at a steady pace as more information about the format-busting show is revealed. We learned that the first two episodes of the series, which will screen on IMAX theaters across the country this Labor Day, will be directed by Roel Reiné. We've also recently learned that the series, which will focus on the Inhuman royal family, will shoot in Hawaii. Now, a pair of tweets -- one deleted -- seem to hint towards a potential casting decision.
First, director Roel Reiné tweeted a photo showing him performing a camera test for "Inhumans," which will be filmed using special IMAX cameras. The tweet was straightforward, reading:
IMAX And so it begins. Camera testing a digital IMAX camera for our #Marvel #Inhumans shoot. Especially wide angle lenses. Very cool format!
That tweet was deleted after being posted, but a response tweet from actress Elysia Rotaru remains online:
Rotaru is most known for her recurring role on season four of "Arrow" as Taiana Venediktov. Her response to this tweet -- specifically since the tweet was deleted -- has some wondering if this is an indication that Rotaru will have a role in "Inhumans." It's also entirely possible that Rotaru is just generally excited for "Inhumans" or a fan of Reiné's work. Below, you'll see the entire conversation, as captured by screengrab by Marvel Studios News.
So far, no casting announcements have been made for "Inhumans," although a call sheet has revealed which characters will appear in the series. While the characters on the call sheet are all under aliases, the breakdowns perfectly describe the Inhuman Royal Family (Black Bolt, Medusa, Maximus, Karnak, Crystal, Gorgon and Triton).
"Iron Fist" executive producer Scott Buck has joined "Inhumans" as showrunner. After debuting in IMAX theaters on or around September 1 and running for two weeks, “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. 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 “Inhuamns” will also be shot using IMAX cameras.
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.
