'Inhumans' Trailer Explains Why They Haven't Been in the MCU
Freedom for all Inhumans! At San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday night, the panel for Marvel’s Inhumans finally unveiled the full trailer for the upcoming series, which will debut in IMAX theaters on September 1. Perhaps the most important detail, however, is how the Inhumans — housed on Atillan on Earth’s Moon — have evaded human attention for generations.
In the new trailer for Inhumans, which emphasizes the show’s unique IMAX experience, the Inhumans have avoided attention from Earth by dwelling on the unreachable Dark Side of the Moon. But Maximus (Iwan Rheon), brother of the Inhuman king Black Bolt (Anson Mount), fears that the day humans discover Inhumans is fast approaching. There are only so many NASA rovers they can crush until someone figures it out.
So, despite Inhumans already being a thing for the past few years on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the real Inhumans from outer space will finally come to Earth when Black Bolt escapes to Hawaii to escape the coup led by Maximus. At least he’s got good boy Lockjaw by his side, though.
Marvel’s Inhumans comes at a weird time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Although Inhumans will share the same continuity as The Avengers, Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy, and somehow, the Netflix shows that make up The Defenders including Daredevil and Jessica Jones, the show appears to have nothing to do with the upcoming event movie Avengers: Infinity War.
But not one Avenger is as cool as Lockjaw. Sadly, the absence of Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel, is sadly felt in the trailer.
Marvel’s Inhumans premieres September 1 in IMAX theaters and on ABC on September 29.
