ABC has rounded out the cast of its groundbreaking Marvel drama Inhumans.
Set to join the cast of the Imax-produced series are Eme Ikwuakor, Isabelle Cornish, Mike Moh, Sonya Balmores and Ellen Woglom, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
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 explores the never-before-told epic adventure of the royal family, including Black Bolt, the enigmatic, commanding King of the Inhumans, with a voice so powerful that the slightest whisper can destroy a city.
The drama is being written and executive produced by Dexter alum Scott Buck, who serves as showrunner. Feature director Roel Reine will helm the first two hours of the series, which in a ground-breaking deal will bow in 1,000 Imax theaters over Labor Day weekend for a two-week run before extended episodes air on ABC as part of the network’s official fall season launch. Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory also exec produce the project, which hails from Marvel Television and ABC Studios.
Here’s a look at the complete cast and who everyone is playing:
Graceland’s Serinda Swan as Medusa
Medusa is the queen of the Inhumans and wife of Black Bolt — his most trusted adviser, a fiercely resilient warrior who has the ability to move and control her hair the way most people use their hands and fingers.
Game of Thrones’ Iwan Rheon as Maximus
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.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Ken Leung as Karnak
Karnak is Black Bolt’s cousin and closest adviser. His gift is an ability to see the fault in all things — people, plans, structures, everything. He’s Black Bolt‘s most ardent supporter and strategist and is often seen as the royal family’s planner and philosopher.
Eme Ikwuakor (Concussion) as Gorgon
Gorgon is the cousin of Black Bolt and a member of the royal family who is also the leader of Attilan’s military. With super-strong legs, complete with hooves, he can generate destructive seismic waves with a single stomp. The yin to his cousin Karnak’s yang, Gorgon would rather fight than talk to solve his problems.
Isabelle Cornish (Australia Day) as Crystal
Crystal is Medusa’s sister and the youngest member of the royal family, who has the ability to control the elements. Impetuous and independent, she is also deeply devoted to her family.
Mike Moh (Empire) as Triton
Triton is Black Bolt’s cousin, who is calm under pressure and supremely athletic.
Sonya Balmores (Soul Surfer) as Auran
Auran is head of the Royal Guards on Attilan. A capable, no-nonsense woman, she is fiercely loyal to the king of Attilan.
Ellen Woglom (Californication) as an undisclosed character
The mystery character is smart, intense and focused — so focused that oftentimes social skills take a back seat. Her job at a private aerospace company is her life, second only to her passion for all things space and lunar. She’s primed to be swept up in an adventure.
Lockjaw as Crystal’s 2,000-pound canine companion
The sizable pooch has the ability to teleport.
“With Eme, Isabelle, Mike, Sonya and Ellen portraying the rest of our leading roles, we have a strong cast that is going to add tremendous depth to our Royal Family,” Buck said.
Specific launch dates for the Imax debut as well as ABC premiere have not yet been determined.
