It came as no surprise that ABC cancelled ‘Inhumans’, its low-performing Marvel adaptation which seemed doomed from the start as fans instantly recoiled from the earliest images and footage. Through a special deal, the first two episodes were shot in IMAX and released in theaters but failed to draw audiences or create buzz. But that doesn’t mean that the show and its characters didn’t earn some fans who would welcome additional appearances, if not on their own show then at least as guest stars on ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ or one of the other ever-increasing Marvel shows, like Hulu’s ‘Runaways’ or Freeform’s ‘Cloak & Dagger’.
Marvel Television chief Jeph Loeb participated in a Reddit AMA and fielded a few questions about ‘The Inhumans’, but sadly it doesn’t look like any concrete plans are in place to revive them anytime soon. When he was first asked if they might resurface on ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’, he simply responded, “Wait and see.”
That’s not very promising. But later he was asked if Black Bolt and his family might pop up anywhere within the Marvel TV universe and he had a little bit more to say. Unfortunately, it also doesn’t sound very promising.
“Hope so. We love these characters and the actors are the best! . . . Great cast and for what’s it worth, still think is a fun show.”
The cast included Anson Mount as Black Bolt. Mount previously starred on AMC’s ‘Hell on Wheels’ as well as ‘Conviction’, ‘Line of Fire’ and ‘The Mountain’. And of course, he played Britney Spears’ love interest in the classic film ‘Crossroads’. Playing Black Bolt’s scheming brother Maximus, was Iwan Rheon, best known for his role as Ramsey Bolton on ‘Game of Thrones’. He also appeared on the series ‘Riviera’ ‘Vicious’ and ‘Our Girl’ among others. Serinda Swan, who played Medusa, appeared in the films ‘Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief’ and ‘Tron: Legacy’ and on the TV series ‘Breakout Kings’, ‘Chicago Fire’, ‘Graceland’ and ‘Ballers’. Comic fans may recall that she also played Zatanna on ‘Smallville’. Ken Leung (Karnak) appeared in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ and ‘X-Men: The Last Stand’ as well as shows ‘Law & Order’, ‘Lost’, ‘Deception’, ‘Person of Interest’, ‘Zero Hour’ and ‘The Night Shift’. Eme Ikwuakor (Gorgon) had recurring roles on ‘We Are Angels’ and ‘Extant’ and since ‘Inhumans’ he has already gone on to appear on the Netflix series ‘On My Block’. Relative newcomer Isabelle Cornish (Crystal) appeared on the Australian shows ‘Home and Away’ and ‘Puberty Blues’.
