Iwan Rheon (Game of Thrones) will star in the straight to series Marvel’s Inhumans on ABC.
The Inhumans, a race of superhumans with diverse and unique powers, were first introduced in Marvel Comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965. The ABC show will explore the never-before-told epic adventure of Black Bolt and the royal family. In the eight-episode straight-to-series drama, Maximus is a clever and charming Inhuman who is fiercely devoted to the people of Attilan, especially his brother, Black Bolt, the king — though he harbors an intense desire to wear the crown himself. Rheon will star as Maximus.
Writer and Executive Producer Scott Buck who also serves as showrunner had this to say about Maximus, “Maximus is a complex character. Likable, charming, tragic and villainous all in the same moment, and I’m very excited to have someone of Iwan’s considerable talent.”
ABC have partnered with IMAX meaning that in 1000 theaters across the US people will be able to watch the 2 hour premiere over Labor Day.
