When Marvel's Inhumans debuts on IMAX screens this September—arriving two weeks before the eight-episode first season airs on television—it will introduce audiences to a new wave of superheroes in the way that Guardians Of The Galaxy did.
Now Marvel has offered up a teaser trailer for the show, that gives audiences just a taste of what they can expect from the show.
Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965, the Inhumans were an outgrowth of experimentation conducted by the alien Kree early on in the Kree-Skrull War that took place millions of years in the past. Creating a station on Uranus—yeah, we said your anus, get it out of your system—the Kree discovered sentient life on Earth and became intrigued by its genetic potential.
Notes Wikipedia, "The Kree began to experiment on Earth's then-primitive Homo sapiens to produce the genetically advanced Inhuman race. Their goal was... to create a powerful mutant race of soldiers for use against the Skrulls." Although successful, the experiments were abandoned due to a genetic prophecy that forsaw it leading to the demise of the Kree people. The Inhumans survived.
The TV version of Inhumans has been cast, and what follows is a look at the actors and their characters.

Hell On Wheels star Anson Mount is playing Black Bolt, the King of the Inhumans. What's intriguing about the character is the fact that he doesn't speak. Not that he's mute, it's just that even a whisper will unleash a sonic wave that could level an entire city. To avoid this, he has mentally trained himself not to speak—even while asleep—and he communicates with others through a spokesperson or sign language. We are, however, willing to bet he'll have something to say in glorious IMAX.
Executive producer Scott Buck seems to believe the actor is up to this particular aspect of Black Bolt: “Anson loves the challenge of playing a character who will only communicate silently. His enthusiasm mixed with his imposing, almost regal persona, made it easy to see why he is our Black Bolt.”
