OF COURSE Fans are petitioning for INHUMANS to be renewed


We are clearly in the day and age where everyone is pretty much petitioning for everything. Well even though nobody thought that this would even have to be a conversation piece, it is now.  Fans have actually started a petition to bring back Marvel’s Inhumans. Yes, that’s right the same Inhumans that opened in IMAX to extremely negative reviews and subsequent ones that followed during its run on ABC.

Now it needs to be noted that the series isn’t OFFICIALLY cancelled as of yet. it has however been removed from the ABC website which people are pretty certain it means the end for them.

But that was enough to mobilize the troops. In a petition on Change.org fans are calling  for Inhumans to receive a second chance. It acknowledges the series’ faults, asks that a potential second season receive both a larger budget as well as a showrunner who better understands the property’s mythology.  The showrunner was  Scott Buck, who oversaw the first season if you recall, faced a lot of criticism before Inhumans in his previous Marvel work, the first season of Iron Fist. Which makes us wonder why was he put on another project in the first place?

According to the petition, the series never really was given a fair shot, and should be handled by  its dedicated cast should deserve a second go at the characters.

While ABC has not officially canceled Inhumans, many have assumed its demise to be a foregone conclusion. But, until an official announcement is made, Inhumans could still have a bit of life left in it….but is more than likely doesn’t right?????

As we get ready to go full steam ahead into summer movie blockbuster season, Marvel is giving us a reminder they’re going to keep the train rolling past the summer.

Ahead of its debut this September the first poster for Marvel’s Inhumans television series has been unveiled.

Marvel will debut the first two episodes of the live-action series in IMAX theaters for a two-week run this September. Then, on September 26, the series will make its way to network television, with each new installment in the eight-episode show airing on Tuesday nights on ABC.

Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon: Cousin of Black Bolt (Anson Mount), member of the Royal family, and leader of Attilan’s military. With super strong legs, complete with hooves, he can generate destructive seismic waves with a single stomp. The ying to his cousin Karnak’s (Ken Leung) yang, Gorgon would rather fight than talk to solve his problems.

Isabelle Cornish as Crystal: Medusa’s (Serinda Swan) sister, Crystal is the youngest member of the royal family and has the ability to control the elements. Impetuous and independent she is also deeply devoted to her family.

Mike Moh as Triton: Black Bolt’s cousin, he’s calm under pressure and supremely athletic. His gift is his fish—like ability to live underwater.

Sonya Balmores as Auran: Head of the Royal Guards on Attilan, a capable and no-nonsense woman. She is fiercely loyal to the King of Attilan.

Ellen Woglom as an undisclosed character who is described as smart, intense, and focused — so focused that oftentimes, social skills take a back seat.
