Now I like Agents of SHIELD. I even dig the Inhumans concept.

But fuck me... when the best part of that trailer is the goddamn CGI dog... UGH.

Iwan Rheon plays an asshole again. What a surprise.  awesome, for real

You really are typecast when you have to say. "You know, that boy that killed a woman in Misfits and stuffed her into a fridge? That was my most sympathetic role."

I'll watch it for Lockjaw and the Hawaii locations. Serinda Swan has her hot moments as well.

Tuned in, immediately get to watch cringey Ubisoft talking head offering her deepest sympathies to the families impacted by the Orlando shooting while flanked by a man in a giraffe suit and some sort of "horrifically garish neon costumes through the ages" exhibit or something.  We need to stop this fucking planet right now and sort some shit out. -Kail

2nd Trailer adds more XF.  Still not looking too good, but perhaps a smidge better than first trailer.

Order of operations

See's Marvel

 Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

See's their adapting the Inhumans

 Ohhhhh, I see.

Realizes this will be on network TV

 ACK!

Inhumans conceptually were never good ideas. They're off brand xmen, they do off brand xmen things and play literally zero roll in the marvel universe besides remind people that the xmen could be cool and edgy(without turning the team into teenagers or 90s wolverine clones). And even if you for the love of god could polish this gimmicky off brand xmen into a legitimate "oh this sounds interesting for longer than 30 minutes" idea.... why the living annual fuck will you trust that to network tv and the same network that gave you agents of shield.

A : There's nothing wrong with MASoS.  If you don't like it, fine.  But it's turned into a solid show, IMO.

B : there is absolutely no way any amount of budget could make moving hair look good, also IMO.  That's just comes off as such a stupid power overall.  Other abilities seem like they could work all right, but moving hair is just about always going to look fake, no matter what.

Loved the song use in that second trailer though.  That was spot on.

And I really know nothing about the Inhumans other than poking around wiki.  They were never particularly on my radar when I was into comics.

Her hair looking good is possible in a big budget blockbuster, but not on this TV budget. 

They should have just given her snakes for hair rather than stick to the source material - or else killed her early and gone all out on one or two scenes.

I think if you're really going to do Medusa, yeah, you decide that her power is actually something like "telekinesis" that seems to radiate out from her hair/head, or some such thing. Unless you have an asston of money, in which case you're probably not making a movie based on the Inhumans, who really just kind of suck as anything but a flavor element in the adventures of other characters.

Second trailer looks better... but still looks assy. Black Bolt does not have anything like the kind of gravitas the character should have, and the whole production just looks cheap. Not even AOS cheap, just SyFy channel cheap. Gorgon's power looks good but I don't like his look either, same goes for the green fish dude whose name I forget. Lockjaw is still the best part of the trailer.

The Inhumans in the comics were just another X-Men style group that no one seemed to know what to do with. In the MCU, though, there is no X-Men so Inhumans can actually serve a decent role. It's just that this production looks weak.

Triton. (green fish dude)

I'm surprised he's in it, actually--he's another one I would have just told them to outright avoid. I don't even think he's been in the comics lately.

He has been, though they've changed his look to include a Bane-type mask on his face when he's out of water, which amazingly enough, I really think they should have gone with in the show. At least that would distract from the fact he just looks like a guy with green face makeup and a shitty fin on his head, and he doesn't even have scales.

Just a reminder that tickets are on sale for the theatrical release.  You know, if you want to see the first two episodes in theaters.  Like, if you have unlimited funds, live next to a theater, and really have nothing to do with your time.

That's a bummer. My kid is really interested in this show for some reason.

To be an optimist, it could just be the first two episodes that suck?  Maybe?  Perhaps? 

I don't believe it either.

I think if what everyone is commenting on is:

your costumes suck
your effects suck
your scripts suck
your actors suck
especially your actors playing Black Bolt suck
your dialogue sucks
your sets mostly suck


Then, no, it's not going to get better.

What if they change the storyline to a low budget porn? That doesn't require good costumes, effects, scripts, acting, dialogue or sets....

To be fair, I think it's Vivid that does super hero porn parodies, and some of the costuming on those things looks WAY better than this.

Just think for a moment that we have all lived long enough to see big budget porn comic book parodies become a thing that exists.

So... The advertising has apparently from "See the first season of" to "See the complete series," as in it's cancelled, but they are still going to show the shows they've filmed. At least that seems to be the critical take.

And for those of you who hated Iron Fist, the showrunner (Scott Buck) there was also the showrunner for The Inhumans.

He's been replaced for the second season of Iron Fist.

I think January? (I can't even be bothered to google it.)

Honestly, I'll give the pilot a chance. I like a lot of things others don't*, but I have to say the screengrabs I've seen turn me right off. It just doesn't *look* good, and the decision to release it to IMAX first was really bizarre.

*as a case in point, although Rotten Tomatoes is only 7% with like 14 reviews, audience surveys were something like 60% positive -- which is super low for a Marvel release, but shows that some folks found something to entertain themselves with, so I might too.
