The few reactions to an unfinished version of the upcoming Inhumans pilot that leaked online have been mixed but the upcoming series continues to fight the fight with more teases on what viewers can expect from the IMAX-ABC production. One major question revolves around its relationship with its sibling ABC show, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and its introduction of the Inhumans. Showrunner Scott Buck had a few things to say on what separates the two generations of powered individuals.
We have seen ‘Nuhumans’ on Agents of SHIELD, but this is completely different. These are Inhumans who know exactly who they are and know the importance of their powers. They know the importance of their Terrigen ceremony which is the holiest, most ritual ceremony in their civilization. I think the ‘Nuhumans’ who inhabit Earth have no idea what’s going on. They are distant relatives of our characters.
The usage of Terrigensis is quite different between the new and older generation, which could open up the possibility to see how the Royal Family reacts to their most holy ritual being passed around in the shape of a pill. A crossover between the two shoes could be interesting with these elements playing an important role throughout an ongoing crossover.
Director of the first two episodes Roel Reiné also had a chance during a screening of the show in London to talk about the importance of watching it on IMAX. He points out that one should not see it on a small screen but take in the beautiful landscapes of Hawaii and visual effects. He also goes a step further to enforce the cinematic feeling of the show that one can expect to see.
You will get the story, but you will never have the emotional connection. Nothing compares to this.
He does go on to say that people will be impressed by the effects, which are currently being worked on by seven visual effects companies, who are trying to finish the 500 effects shots for the first two episodes alone. It will be interesting to see how much they can manage to add in the current month before its international release in IMAX theatres. There is hope that the currently released screener is as unfinished as they stated during the rather rushed TCA press conference and it will manage to surprise people, but at this point, only time will tell.
