At its core, Marvel’s Inhumans is ostensibly a series about the political upheaval of a ruling class, and revolutions always result in body counts. When he achieved his coup to steal the throne of Attilan and install himself as King, Maximus (Iwan Rheon) outright plotted to have his brother Black Bolt (Anson Mount) killed. This power struggle for the future of the Inhumans who are living in isolation on the moon began with bloodshed – the death of Triton (Mike Moh) – and more Inhumans have died in the course of the series. The sixth episode, ‘The Gentleman’s Name Is Gorgon’, delivered its biggest death yet, and going by the episode’s title, it’s no surprise which member of the Inhumans’ Royal Family fell.
Jaimie Alexander says the reason she wasn’t able to appear in Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok was due to scheduling conflicts with her role on NBC’s Blindspot. The actress first appeared as the comic book character Lady Sif in Kenneth Branagh’s 2011 film, Thor. She reprised her role in Alan Taylor’s Thor: The Dark World in 2013 and on ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. during the series’ first season in 2014, and then again during the show’s second season in 2015. However, she’s remained absent from the Marvel Cinematic Universe ever since.
Back in the good old days of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, when something weird happened, S.H.I.E.L.D. would be right on top of it. Before the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, S.H.I.E.L.D. would immediately have boots on the ground when a man in an armored suit started invading other countries soon after a billionaire suspiciously re-emerged from a kidnapping or a mysterious magic hammer appears in the New Mexico desert. But that was then. Today, S.H.I.E.L.D. is a shell of its former self, and nowhere in today’s MCU is its absence more glaring than on the island of Oahu, where the events of Marvel’s Inhumans are unfolding.
A new stylized Justice League IMAX poster has arrived capturing the team as they gear up for battle. The new image has come ahead of the film’s debut next month as Warner Bros. continues to amp up fan anticipation via a slew of promotional materials.
The script for Justice League 2 is, unsurprisingly, already in the works. Warner Bros. officially launched their DC film universe with Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice last year, a follow-up to Snyder’s 2013 film, Man of Steel. David Ayer’s Suicide Squad and Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman allowed the franchise to develop before the studio united the world’s finest heroes – Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) – for the first time on the big screen with Justice League.
