We’re only a few more weeks out from Inhumans premiering in IMAX ahead of joining fellow Marvel series Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC later that month. While each of these series are their own things, there are definitely some connections between the two. Speaking with Digital Spy, series showrunner Scott Buck discussed these connections and how the Inhumans of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. are “relatives” of those on the moon.
“We had to be aware of what’s happening in Agents of SHIELD, because we do inhabit the same universe and our characters do come to Earth. We don’t specifically mention characters from Agents of SHIELD, but what has happened there is relevant to what happens in our show.”
When asked about how Inhumans will compare to other Marvel televsion projects, Buck told the outlet that they had worked to make sure that the series felt “as grounded and real as possible” in order to make you “able to relate to the characters.” The showrunner then added the following in regards to their approach to that and how it fit in with the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“Their superpowers are almost secondary to who they are, it doesn’t necessarily define their personality. So tonally I would just say, as far as the rest of the Marvel world, there is always going to be comedy, and emotion, and hopefully just some very strong characters that the audience will find worth watching.
I don’t necessarily come from the world of writing action-adventure, I come from a background of writing more character-driven stuff, so the action is fun – and we certainly have a lot of really cool action and stunts throughout the show – but Inhumans is basically a family drama.”
While the trailer revealed that some of the events of the series are in response to the terrigen outbreak from season two, I’m excited to see any other possible connections. And hopefully if there is a second season, we get to see these characters crossover at some point. As for the rest? Sounds good to me. How about you? Let us know what you think about Buck’s comments in the section below.
Inhumans debuts in IMAX for two week run starting September 1st before premiering on ABC Fridays starting September 29th.
