Marvel’s Inhumans are finally coming to the big and small screen thanks to ABC and a unique partnership with IMAX.

Fans at San Diego Comic Con will get to see the episodes even earlier, as they were shown during the 6:15 p.m. PST panel on July 20. Read on to meet the main cast of the series.
The first two episodes of Marvel’s Inhumans will air on September 29, after the IMAX screenings start on September 1. It’s a unique release plan, and the IMAX screenings will run two weeks. It follows HBO’s successful Game of Thrones IMAX release in 2015.
Here’s the brand new trailer unveiled at SDCC:
Inhumans began as a movie, which was supposed to be released in November 2018. It would have been the 20th Marvel Studios movie. A few months after that, the Inhumans species was finally introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the second season of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD. In April 2016, the film was pulled, and Marvel and ABC began talking about developing Inhumans as a TV series.
Scott Buck, who also worked on Marvel’s Iron Fist at Netflix, is Inhumans‘ showrunner. Like SHIELD, Inhumans is part of the MCU. “Things that have happened on S.H.I.E.L.D. will potentially affect our show as well,” Buck told Entertainment Weekly.
