Hold on, stop the presses. A “2,000-pound teleporting dog”?
If we weren’t into this show before, we sure are now.
Move over HBO direwolves, Inhumans has cast a bulldog named Lockjaw as himself. It seems Medusa (Serinda Swan) has a sister, Crystal (Isabelle Cornish, just added), who in turn has a dog (the aforementioned Lockjaw), who on the show will appear to weigh about a ton and has the ability to teleport. This should make playing fetch vastly more interesting, not to mention reduce the need to get up and let Lockjaw out for a daily walk. In case you’re wondering, the top weight for real-life bulldogs is about 60 pounds.
Oh, also there are five human actors joining the cast too. In addition to Cornish (Australia Day), who’s the youngest member of the royal family and has the ability to control the elements, there’s…
Eme Ikwuakor (Concussion) 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.”
Mike Moh (Empire) 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 (Beyond the Break) 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 (Californication), an undisclosed character described as “smart, intense, and focused — so focused that oftentimes, social skills take a back seat. Her job at a private aerospace company is her life, second only to her passion for all things space and lunar. She’s primed to be swept up in an adventure.”
Marvel’s Inhumans comes to ABC and IMAX theaters this fall.
