    Wouldn't...
    Wow, you guys walked away with a very different impression than me. Granted I only watched it once, but the only two things I remember are Lockjaw teleporting Black Bolt and Black Bolt grunting when he get's hit by the cops and blowing a car away.

    Knowing nothing about this going in other than Agents of SHIELD, this did not make me excited. I was hoping for some sort of spinoff or tie-in to AoS but thus far it really doesn't look like it. And the characters did not seem very interesting to make me want to know more.

    He's onscreen less than a minute in that clip and I wanted him to die a horribly painful death like his GoT character.

    (1.5) And who gets to clean up after Lockjaw? I mean, can you imagine the size of his droppings!

    I hope they're not paying Anson Mount by the line here.

    You should look it up, first season (series) was pretty good, but I kind of lost interest during the 3rd or 4th, and don't recall even trying the 5th.

    Short British series, 6-8 episodes per.
    I think it was available on either Netflix or Hulu at one point.

    A good marketing pitch?

    Totally apart from the content, business-wise, I give them credit for a creative marketing and media platform idea, for both funding and audience purposes.

    It is my understanding the idea was for this to be a movie, and at some point it was switched to being a television series. Had it been planned as a television series from the beginning I'm certain IMAX would not have been used.

    That matches up with what I remember reading.

    The Inhumans was supposed to be one of the first "Phase 3" films of the MCU.

    As near as I can tell, it got scrapped after Guardians of the Galaxy became a massive hit and TPTB decided to swap it for Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2.

    From what I've heard, this show is not intended to connect in any way to anything in Agents of SHIELD. I read an interview with one of the producers or showrunners of this, and he admitted knowing absolutely nothing about what AoS have done and are doing over on their show.

    Hmm. Official marvel interviews say they are in the same universe and will have connections but not in the beginning.

    Also, I'm seeing that IMAX approached marvel after a successful Game of Thrones IMAX event. Their involvement purely for the tv series because the movie was dead completely.

    Judging from the trailer, it looks like the Inhumans Inhumans have been on the Moon long enough that Black Bolt isn't expecting modern civilization when he lands in LA. That would explain why the SHIELD Inhumans don't seem to know that the Inhumans Inhumans exist...

    FYI - The Inhumans were first discovered by The Fantastic Four back in issue #45 (1965). I used to have the original comics that I purchased from the local drug store back when I was a kid. Medusa and Crystal eventually became members of the FF and Crystal was also a member of The Avengers. The Inhumans have a history with the Kree, who were introduced in the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series, so I'm wondering if we'll see some interaction there. I'm glad to see that they're concentrating on the royal family instead of the AoS knockoffs. I was a bit concerned how they were going to transition that story to the big screen in their own movie. Nice to see Serinda Swan again. I liked her in Breakout Kings.

    Medusa's first appearance in Fantastic Four was as a member of the Frightful Four, along with the Wizard, Sandman, and Paste-Pot Pete (aka Trapster). She had amnesia and didn't know she was an Inhuman.
