The Marvel Inhumans TV series is a bit of an odd duck. It’s going to debut in theaters, and either will or won’t tie into the Inhumans arc that Agents of Shield has. It’s weird, but, many are excited. And today, a casting call for the main characters of the series was apparently leaked, and TheHashTagShow broke them down. We have them below, along with our notes about who we think they are.
“Male. 30-40. Caucasian. Can say volumes with just a look. Strong, thoughtful and private, he’s unaccustomed to being questioned or feeling a need to answer to anyone, to an extent that can verge on arrogance.” This is clearly Black Bolt, leader of the Inhumans, and a longtime player in the Marvel Universe.
“Female. 30-40. Caucasian. An elegant and intelligent advisor to her husband, she struggles to find her place outside of their relationship, as others tend to view her as just a pretty face. Strong and resourceful, she’s not afraid to break the rules when the situation demands it.” Another clear one, Medusa, Black Bolts wife and epic female of the Marvel Universe.
“30-40. Caucasian. younger brother; he is intelligent, charming and articulate. He comes across as a man of the people but secretly covets power.” This is Maximus, Black Bolt’s brother who is insane, and often plays a long game in order to get what he wants.
“Male. 30-40. Open. Slight of build, his mind is his greatest asset. Always prepared with a plan, his outlook on life is the glass is always half-empty and often cracked and dirty as well. Though his outlook can be grim he has a droll, dry sense of humor.” Likely Karnak, who is one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel Universe as he is able to see the flaws in anything. Including people.
“Male. 25-35. Open. Impetuous and brash, he has serious impulse control issues which frequently get him into trouble whether its women, booze or fighting. He loves life and lives in the moment for better or worse” Very likely Gorgon, who is one of the odder Inhumans, but has been around a while. He’s meant to be the muscle of the group, though will likely be changed a bit from his comic version…as that one has hooves.
“Female. 18-25 to play 18. Caucasian. Soulful but still learning the ways of the world, she has the arrogance of youth. Impetuous and independent she is also deeply devoted to her family” Likely Crystal, who happens to be Medusa’s younger sister. Family is a big thing with Inhumans, so it’s not surprising to see so many blood relatives in the main cast.
“Male. 25-35. Open. SFXMU required. Supremely athletic. The ultimate picture of cool. He’s calm under pressure and willing to do anything to get the job done.” Triton most likely, Karnak’s brother, and as the description notes, the SFX/CGI character in the group. He resembles a merman, which will no doubt add to the fun and diversity of the group.
We’ll have to see
