This fall will see the release of a new ABC Marvel series in the form of Inhumans. This has been an interesting project to follow from theget-go. When it was first announced as a part of Marvel Studios’ film lineup, it was interesting in how late in the game it came. And when Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. started utilizing the concept of Inhumans, it wasn’t exactly clear how all this would mesh together, considering the disparity between Marvel TV and Marvel Studios.

After a while, Inhumans fell off the Marvel Studios slate, and soon enough, it was picked up as a TV series — one separate from what was executed on S.H.I.E.L.D. But the question remained: could Inhumans get pulled off on the small screen? Medusa alone is a character whose hair would likely require a good deal of visual effects. This, of course, led to another question: what would that mean for Lockjaw, the giant teleporting dog?

If you had fears of him being a no-show in the series, then fear not, some leaked footage shows Lockjaw in action.

Even more surprising is that Lockjaw doesn’t look half bad. Given the fact that Inhumans is on network television, you’d expect the VFX to be somewhat subpar, but this is quite passable. Of course, it likely doesn’t hurt that this series is being touted as some next-level stuff. In addition to being an 8-episode limited series (meaning a bigger per-episode budget), the series is being shot on digital IMAX cameras, and is having its premiere in IMAX.

So despite being a more standard network TV show, they really seem to be taking a more cable TV approach to the whole thing, which is great news for us fans!
