The Flickering Myth Reaction to the first trailer for Marvel’s Inhumans

The Flickering Myth team react to the first trailer for Marvel’s Inhumans

Marvel’s Inhumans series dropped its first trailer yesterday [watch it here] and the online reaction has been overwhelmingly negative.  What did the Flickering Myth staff think of this first look?  Read on to see how much our writers matched up with public opinion…

Shaun Munro: Scott Buck’s the showrunner, so of course this looks and plays incredibly flat. It did almost nothing for me, unfortunately. I imagine the IMAX treatment will just enhance how cheap it all looks.

Tai Freligh: I know nothing about the Inhumans at all, so I went into this trailer with no preconceptions. It looks somewhat interesting, but I’m not sure I can handle another show where Iwan Rheon plays a Ramsay Bolton type of character. If so, I’d be rooting for him to get killed off right away as I can’t handle more of that. »
