ABC has ordered a new series, Marvel’s ‘The Inhumans,’ based on the classic comic-book characters, in partnership with IMAX.
According to Marvel’s official press release, “the Inhumans are a race of superhumans with diverse and singularly unique powers, and were first introduced in Marvel Comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965. Since that time, they have grown in prominence and become some of the most popular and iconic characters in the Marvel Universe. Marvel’s The Inhumans will explore the never-before-told epic adventure of Black Bolt and the royal family.”
The first two episodes of the series will run exclusively on the big screen for two weeks in September 2017, with the weekly series premiering in the fall. The series will be produced by Marvel Television in conjunction with ABC Studios and filmed entirely with IMAX cameras.

It highlights Disney-ABC’s unrelenting commitment to finding new and creative ways to showcasing our best programming and increasing global engagement and reach.”
