Well, I think it’s fair to say that none of us saw this coming! There have been rumblings for a while now that the divide between Marvel Entertainment and Marvel Studios had resulted in The Inhumans being shelved, and it now appears as if those reports were indeed accurate as the project is instead moving forward at Marvel Television in what looks set to be a very unique way of launching a TV series.

Set to premiere on ABC next Fall, the first two episodes will be shot entirely with IMAX digital cameras for a two week run in IMAX theaters worldwide at the beginning of September. The network will then premiere the weekly series later in the Fall with exclusive extra content which can only be seen there.

Now, many of you are probably thinking that the show will revolve around the not that exciting Inhumans we’ve seen in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., right? Well, think again, as the press release confirms that, “Marvel’s The Inhumans” will explore the never-before-told epic adventure of Black Bolt and the royal family.” This obviously makes it clear that we won’t be seeing them as part of Phase 4.

Considering the fact that the Marvel movies have largely ignored what happens on ABC and Netflix, chances are this limited IMAX run is the only time we’ll see the Inhumans on the big screen.
