AceShowbiz - Marvel's head of television Jeph Loeb would like to set the record straight on the upcoming ABC eight-part series "Marvel's Inhumans". Amid criticism following the first trailer which arrived in June, Loeb revealed at the Television Critics Association summer press tour that what fans saw was not the finished product.
"I can tell you that it was written on the material that you were given that the show that you have seen is not the finished product," he opened up. "If you're asking me whether or not it was done, it's not. So to be perfectly honest, I don't understand your question."
During the panel, cast member %cSerinda Swan% also weighed in on the critically-panned Medusa's wig. "It's never been done before," said the "Tron: Legacy" star. "So there's going to be issues and there's going to be trials and tribulations. The CGI … there was software that had to be built for it."
The Canadian actress also shared that donning the wig for the character was challenging. "It's very heavy," said Swan, who was joined by co-stars %cIwan Rheon% and %cAnson Mount%. "You put it on and everyone is like, 'You've such good posture, you're so regal,' but no, my head is being pulled backwards," she continued, before adding, "There were definitely days shooting in Hawaii with a four-pound red wig down to my shins, which felt like a very warm cat settling on my head, one that I was probably allergic to."
In response to criticism regarding the unclear abilities of Karnak (%cKen Leung%), EP Scott Buck clarified, "Karnak has the ability to see the flaw in anything and everything, whether it be a person, a building, anything, and everything." He went on saying, "Unfortunately, what this does to Karnak as a person is everything is flawed, so nothing is good enough for Karnak."
Loeb once again affirmed that the show is in progress and said, "What you've seen so far is something that's unfinished." He went on explaining, "Once you've seen the whole finished product you actually do [understand]."
Also starring on the series are %cIsabelle Cornish%, %cSonya Balmores%, %cMike Moh%, %cEllen Woglom%, %cEme Ikwuakor% and %cHenry Ian Cusick%. The series will premiere its first two episodes on Friday, September 29 at 8 P.M. on ABC, before later airing on Friday at 9 P.M. slot. Prior to the TV debut, the first two episodes of "Marvel's Inhumans" will screen in IMAX theaters worldwide for two weeks, starting on September 1.
