For months, we’ve been covering Marvel Television’s latest venture, Inhumans. Sure, they’ve been keeping themselves quite busy between their ABC fare and Netflix fare, but Inhumans seemed to be their next big project. Sure, it may fall under the standard network of ABC, but Inhumans was shot on, and is set to premiere, in IMAX. So despite its standard network standing, they really do seem to be trying to do something new. But would a series like Inhumans be too big for ABC?

That was definitely our biggest concern going into it. Our fears weren’t really calmed when we saw the first photos of the cast, and we still hoped that this first trailer would put things to rest for us. Sadly, that doesn’t appear to be the case. Marvel Television has released the first trailer for the series, and it looks so TV it hurts.

Between the stiff dialogue, set-like locations, and awful sound effects (seriously, around 1:39 in you can hear the fakest of fake punch sound effects), this looks to be a big swing and miss for Marvel Television. That being said, I’m ALWAYS cautious about TV trailers. More often than not, they’re based on unfinished footage from just the first couple episodes, and as such, it’s generally very difficult for trailer editors to make a full arc in a couple minutes. As a result, there have been many bad trailers for good shows.

We’ll have to wait and see.

The synopsis for Inhumans is below:

“After the Royal Family of Inhumans is splintered by a military coup, they barely escape to Hawaii where their surprising interactions with the lush world and humanity around them may prove to not only save them, but Earth itself.”

What do you think of this trailer? Are you as worried as we are? Let us know down below!
