‘Marvel’s Inhumans’ Canceled By ABC After One Season

Marvel’s Inhumans will not see a second season. ABC has canceled the action drama series.

The decision is not a surprise. The show premiered to modest ratings on ABC following its two-episode debut in Imax theaters two weeks before its linear premiere, and it never picked up steam. Box office receipts of $3.5 million disappointed all involved, and the show drew negative reviews from critics.

Marvel’s Inhumans explored the never-before-told epic adventure of the royal family, including Black Bolt, the enigmatic, commanding King of the Inhumans. After the family is splintered by a military coup, they barely escape to Hawaii, where they are greeted with surprising interactions with the lush world and humanity around them. Now they must find a way to reunite with each other and return to their home before their way of life is destroyed forever.

Marvel’s Inhumans starred Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Iwan Rheon as Maximus,

‘Marvel’s Inhumans’ IMAX Review: The Worst Thing Marvel Has Done In Decades

‘Marvel’s Inhumans’ IMAX Review: The Worst Thing Marvel Has Done In Decades
Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. is not exactly a popular time to see a movie, but at the AMC Century City Imax theater, there were a total of four people sitting in the audience to catch the first two episodes of ABC’s “Marvel’s Inhumans.” All of them purchased their tickets less than an hour before showtime.

Just a few days earlier, the same theater had still been screening Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk,” the meticulously made and visceral World War II drama that’s become a box office success and an awards season contender. Based on both this weekend’s disappointing box office reports and even worse initial reviews, “Marvel’s Inhumans” will not be remembered for either of those qualities.

Marvel’s Inhumans opens to $2.6 million worldwide

Marvel Television unleashed its latest offering in IMAX theaters this weekend, with the first two episodes of Inhumans grossing $2.6 million around the globe.

According to Box Office Mojo, Inhumans earned $1.5 million from around 400 locations in North America, along with a further $1.1 million from 65 international markets.

While this is a fraction of the IMAX openings for Inhumans‘ big screen cousins of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it is a fairly solid result for a TV show, especially as it’s had a) very little promotion, b) horrendous reviews, and c) zero buzz. For comparison, the season four finale of Game of Thrones earned $1.4 million from its theatrical run.

What is It Like to Direct Medusa’s Hair on “Inhumans?”

Some people wear mood rings to tell you what’s going on inside their heads, while others will wear their heart on their sleeves. Medusa of the Inhumans will however show you just how she feels by how her hair reacts to the given situation. While in the comics this is fairly straightforward and can be explained in many different ways and drawn in many different poses, in reality it becomes a bit problematic. Director Roel Reine even goes on to say: “…in one shot when Maximus puts his hand on Medusa’s shoulder, the hair must move away. Then when he

Inhumans Could Crossover With Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Love them or loathe them, Marvel’s Royal Family are bound for television in the form of Inhumans, an eight-part series that staged its world premiere via IMAX just yesterday. From there, and following a two-week spell in theaters, Black Bolt and the gang will uproot for ABC, where Scott Buck (Iron Fist) and Roel Reiné’s lavish drama will occupy a Friday night slot. But where the show might head after that is currently up in the air.

And that’s because so far, both fans and critics have been thoroughly unimpressed with what seems to be the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first major misfire. Scrutinized almost right from the start, the first wave of reviews have not been too kind, as Fandom called the series “largely stripped of personality or flair,” while Newsarama considers it “aimless and bleached-out” and decrees it “Game of Thrones-lite.”

Perhaps most damning of all,

Marvel's Inhumans review

Don Kaye Sep 29, 2017

A month ago, our Us chums saw a preview of the first two Inhumans episodes on an IMAX screen and the results... weren't pretty.

Inhumans, a new series from Marvel Television, has taken a strange path to the public: a shortened version of the first two episodes in the series arrived on the 1st of September for a limited run in IMAX theaters around the Us, before the show premiered on ABC (which, like Marvel, is owned by Disney) on September the 29th for an eight episode stretch. The saga of the Inhumans in the Marvel Comics universe is decades-long and twisty, as most long-running comic book creations are; but their history on the large and small screen, while shorter, is equally complicated.

Inhumans Reviews: Marvel’s Adaptation Of The Royal Family Is “A Visual Bust”

Force Friday II may be stealing headlines left, right, and center with its exhaustive lineup for toys and goodies inspired by Star Wars and, in particular, The Last Jedi, but September 1st heralds the arrival of another geek-friendly product: Marvel and ABC’s Inhumans.

Beginning today, the long-anticipated adaptation of Marvel’s Royal Family will screen in select IMAX theaters, before the eight-part drama uproots for ABC, where it’ll join Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., towards the end of the month. That IMAX stint will last for around a week, before the arrival of New Line’s It adaptation, which is currently riding the crest of a wave.

Sadly, the opposite is true for Marvel’s Inhumans. Truth be told, the series has struggled to escape criticism since its inception – despite the best efforts of its cast – and there is now a general feeling of indifference looming over Attilan. Don’t believe us?

The Director of Inhumans Talks About Directing Medusa's Hair and Pushing The VFX Limits

I honestly never in a million years would have thought that I would be writing so damn much about the hair of a character in any kind of film or TV series. Yet, here I am. Medusa's hair in Marvel's Inhumans series has caused quite a stir among fans.

A lot of fans hate what they've seen from the hair, while others aren't too critical about it. One thing is for sure, there was actually a lot of work and effort that went into trying to pull off Medusa's hair in the series... before we saw that they drastically changed it as seen in one of the latest TV spots.

During a recent interview with Independent, director Roel Reiné discussed what went into directing the hair, and the effort they put into trying to get it right. He explained:

"I see all the shots and then make notes. I pitch them the ideas,
