Marvel Television Casts Anson Mount As Its Black Bolt For 'Marvel's The Inhumans'

Marvel Television today has announced who will lead the Inhumans in their upcoming series, Marvel's The Inhumans.

They have given the role of Black Bolt, the ruler of Attilan and King of the Inhumans whose powers come from uttering a single word that decimates anything in his path, to Anson Mount.

Marvel's The Inhumans will explore the never-before-told epic adventure of the royal family including Black Bolt, the enigmatic, commanding King of the Inhumans, with a voice so powerful that the slightest whisper can destroy a city.

“Anson loves the challenge of playing a character who will only communicate silently,” said Jeph Loeb, Head of Marvel Television and Executive Producer. “His enthusiasm mixed with his imposing almost regal persona made it easy to see why he is our Black Bolt.”

Added executive producer and showrunner Scott Buck, “Black Bolt is a character whose deep complexity must be conveyed without uttering a single word, and I’m very excited to have Anson on board to bring him to life.”

As of late Marvel Television made another casting in Iwan Rheon, from Game of Thrones fame, as Maximus, who is a loyal subject of Attilan and its people, especially Black Bolt; Although the idea of being king is a strong temptation for the character.

Marvel's The Inhumans will have its first two episodes, which will be directed by Roel Reine, shot with IMAX cameras and will premiere at IMAX cinemas across the world before airing on ABC, who are working with IMAX to make the series, during their autumn season. The series will see Scott Buck as executive producer and showrunner, with Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory as also executive producers.

Marvel’s The Inhumans, which follows a race of superhumans with diverse and singularly unique powers, were first introduced in Marvel Comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965. Since that time, they have grown in prominence and become some of the most popular and iconic characters in the Marvel Universe.
