Just a month ago Marvel announced a groundbreaking partnership between IMAX and Disney/ABC Television Group to bring Marvel’s The Inhumans to the small screen. In an unprecedented move, the series will first see a theatrical debut exclusively in IMAX theaters on Labor Day 2017 for the first two episodes shot entirely with IMAX cameras. Following the theatrical debut, ABC will capitalize on The Inhumans by premiering extended versions of the first two episodes before beginning its fall run on September 26, 2017. Currently, the series is capped at eight episodes with subsequent action sequences also to be shot with IMAX cameras.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel has signed on Iron Fist showrunner Scott Buck to bring The Inhumans to fruition. Buck is best known for his work on the final three seasons of the showtime drama Dexter. While the last three seasons of Dexter weren’t the greatest, the decision to hire Buck signals a confidence in him. Marvel must be very satisfied with the Iron Fist series which makes it’s debut on Netflix March 17, 2017.
The official press release for The Inhumans describes the superhero team as a race of superhumans with diverse and singularly unique powers. The Inhumans were first introduced in Marvel Comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965.
