There’s been a bit of news concerning Marvel and ABC’s show, The Inhumans.
Iwan Rheon will lay the lead role of Maximus. Now if you are not a Game of Thrones fan, you may not know who this guy is, but we are very familiar with him and we loved his twisted, crazy character Ramsey.
This news is actually a surprise because we assumed Black Bolt would be the lead, but new reports are saying Maximus the Mad will be the main character.
Scott Buck, the showrunner has this to say:
“Maximus is a complex character. Likeable, charming, tragic and villainous all in the same moment, and I’m very excited to have someone of Iwan’s considerable talent.”
Marvel’s Jeph Loeb adds: “Iwan’s ability to be charming, roguish and still completely unexpectedly dangerous were all the different sides we needed to bring the character to life. We’re thrilled to have him on board.”
The announcement was also accompanied by an official synopsis for the show:
Inhumans will explore the never-before-told epic adventure of Black Bolt and the royal family. In the eight-episode straight-to-series drama, Maximus is a clever and charming Inhuman that is fiercely devoted to the people of Attilan, especially his brother, the King — though he harbors an intense desire to wear the crown himself.
The first 2 episodes of The Inhumans will screen in IMAX theaters on September 1, with the show set to continue on ABC on September 26.
