The teleporting dog popped in for National Dog Day
The trailers for Marvel’s Inhumans, as well as early impressions from Comic-Con, yielded a mixed bag of responses to the IMAX-bound ABC series — but everyone seems to love Lockjaw. The teleporting dog of the Inhuman royal family popped in for a new character poster on Saturday, a.k.a. National Dog Day.
With the ability to transport himself and others across dimensions, Lockjaw serves as protector and escort to his family. In the footage from Inhumans, we see him whisking Blackbolt (Anson Mount) away from his usurper, brother Maximus (Iwan Rheon).
“Lockjaw is probably going to end up being the audience’s favorite character,” showrunner Scott Buck told EW. “We certainly enjoy working with him. He’s fun to write, he’s fun to shoot. There’s not too much more detail than that that I can give, but he is going to be a standout on the show.”
The one-sheet comes after ABC and Marvel released a series of posters for other characters, including Serinda Swan’s Queen Medusa, Isabelle Cornish’s Crystal, Eme Ikwuakor’s Gorgon, Mike Moh’s Triton, and Ken Leung’s Karnak.

Inhumans explores the story of the royal family, headed by Blackbolt and Medusa. When Blackbolt’s brother executes a coup at their home of Attilan, the Inhuman city, the family barely escapes to Earth.
“My fear was I’d be doing the same thing again,” Rheon, known for playing the sadistic Ramsay Bolton on HBO’s Game of Thrones, told EW of Maximus. “It’s that fear of being typecast and you just end up repeating yourself, but as we discussed it more and more, I realized that wasn’t at all what we were trying to create with the show.”
Inhumans will first hit IMAX theaters on Sept. 1 before season 1 premieres on ABC Friday, Sept. 29 at 8 p.m. ET.
