Marvel’s Comic-Con Inhumans Trailer Is Better Than the First, Oddly Fixated on IMAX

Marvel held a dedicated panel for the upcoming Inhumans TV series last night and San Diego Comic-Con, where they debuted a second trailer that had a bit more going for it than the first one did. It showed off a bit more action than the first and gave a better sense of the tension that will drive the story, although it also had a strange fixation on its IMAX gimmick.

Marvel is launching the show’s first two episodes in IMAX theaters this fall, which is why they’re trying to play up that aspect so much, but it still feels like a weirdly technical thing to bother promoting explicitly in a trailer. On the other hand, we at least got a few more interesting character moments than in the first one, and we finally got to see Medusa and her hair in action—at least a glimpse.

We also got to know, from the panel, who Ellen Woglom will play in the series: a human named Louise who has “some special knowledge” and has been exposed to the Terrigen Mist that gives Inhumans their powers, but she apparently doesn’t have powers in the series. Scenes from the first two episodes were also shown to attendees of the panel, including a coup by Inhumans leader Black Bolt’s brother, Maximus, as well as a dinner scene with the Inhumans royal family.
