Appearing at Comic-Con International in San Diego, Marvel's Inhumans TV series hosted a panel, teasing much of what's in store for the comic book-based TV series, in addition to revealing juicy tidbits about the broadcast version of the series that will air on ABC. As confirmed previously, the series will debut on IMAX screens this Fall -- however, the first two episodes of the Marvel Comics-based series will include all-new footage when the show transitions from IMAX to broadcast.
Marvel TV chief Jeph Loeb confirmed the news and described the broadcast-exclusive version of the Inhumans' pilot as "a variant cover."
The official description for the series is the following: "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."
The first two episode of Inhumans will premiere Sept. 1 in IMAX theaters, followed by its broadcast debut Friday, Sept. 29, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC. The drama stars Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Iwan Rheon as Maximus the Mad, Serinda Swan as Queen Medusa, Ken Leung as Karnak, Isabelle Cornish as Crystal, Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Mike Moh as Triton and Sonya Balmores as Auran.
