The Inhuman royal family is complete. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel has finished casting their upcoming "Inhumans" series, with Isabelle Cornish as Crystal, Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Mike Moh as Triton, Sonya Balmores as Auran and Ellen Woglom in an as-yet-unannounced role.
The report came complete with character descriptions, which are as follows:
- Crystal (Cornish): Crystal is Medusa's sister and the youngest member of the royal family who has the ability to control the elements. Impetuous and independent she is also deeply devoted to her family.
- Gorgon (Ikwuakor): Gorgon is the cousin of Black Bolt and a member of the royal family who is the leader of Attilan’s military. With super strong legs, complete with hooves, he can generate destructive seismic waves with a single stomp. The ying to his cousin Karnak’s yang, Gorgon would rather fight than talk to solve his problems.
- Triton (Moh): Triton is Black Bolt's cousin who is calm under pressure and supremely athletic. His gift is his fish — like the ability to live underwater.
- Auran (Balmores): Auran is head of the Royal Guards on Attilan, a capable and no-nonsense woman. She is fiercely loyal to the King of Attilan.
- Woglom's character: The mystery character is smart, intense and focused — so focused that oftentimes social skills take a back seat. Her job at a private aerospace company is her life, second only to her passion for all things space and lunar. She’s primed to be swept up in an adventure.
The cast list also included Lockjaw, "Crystal’s 2,000-pound canine companion," who has the ability to teleport.
These newcomers join a cast that includes Anson Mount (Black Bolt), Serinda Swan (Medusa), Karnak (Ken Leung) and “Game of Thrones'” Iwan Rheon (Maximus).
Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the Inhuman royal family has been a staple of Marvel Comics since 1965. Notably, Auran is an exception here; the head of Attilan's Royal Guard, Auran debuted in Charles Soule, Pepe Larraz and Ryan Stegman's "Inhuman" #7, which hit shelves in December 2014.
“Iron Fist” executive producer Scott Buck will act as showrunner on Marvel’s “Inhumans.” 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.
