I assume Lockjaw will simply be CGI.

Auran is a current minor character in the comics right now.

Gorgon is black 'cuz black is beautiful.

The Crystal casting looks good.

When I think of Lockjaw for the screen, my head goes to some variation of Woola from the JOHN CARTER movie.

Scott Buck is the show runner for this.....
He was also responsible for Iron Fist on Netflix.  and we know how that turned out.

I was really happy about Inhumans at first.

Now (after finding out who the creative mind is behind this....and especially after someone decided that THIS was a proper first impression) I'm not so optimistic.

Jay-sus fook!!!

Once again continuing the time-honored-yet-ironic tradition of taking originally outlandish-looking superheroes and making them look somehow even more ridiculous... by translating them into a "realistic" and boring fashion!

Total pass.  (But Crystal is super-cute.)

Tough crowd here.

I think they look good. I just hope Medusa's hair will be fully CGI and animated. But I assume that is too much to hope fur for on a TV budget.

Well really, Robert... take away Crystal's distinctive hairstyle, and does anything about that photo scream, "Ah yes, the Inhumans!  Of course!!!"

Compared to something more akin to this, yeah, I think they could have tried a little harder, don't you?

Image result for the inhumans comic

There is no reason they must do the costumes verbatim when compared to the original look. Crystal, Karnak, and Medusa have never had iconic, stand-out costumes. Thats why their look has changed so many times over the years.

I think they've done a good job capturing the essence of each character's look. Medusa in a dress is sorta odd but the rest look fine.

The only thing I wish they did add though was the antenna on BlackBolt somehow.

I'm curious how they are going to handle a character who can't speak? Sign language? Telepathy? (EDIT: just read the article - it'll be sign language)

Is Triton going to be a costume? All CG? Or will he shape shift when he powers up? This is one area i hope they do right - Triton is always Triton and should look that way all the time.

I don't know. Maybe I'll like it more once I see them in motion, but it looks very....bland.

The best I can say is that it could be worse.

There are two sides to this question. I'm on one side, and you're wrong.

LOL...whew, good thing for me opinions are never wrong. My wife still can't grasp that concept.

Like every show, I'll give this a chance before I praise or condemn. Hopefully the CGI will be done well. I'm worried about that most of all. Medusa's hair is going to be one tough nut to crack and still look good.

Although, If I had a choice, I'd prefer something  more along these lines...



If the show had the budget, form fitting body suits for Crystal and Medusa (ala what they are doing in Ghost in the Machine) would be pretty cool.
