ABC has green lit a new Marvel series. Marvel’s The Inhumans will focus on Royal Family of the The Inhumans. The king of the Inhumans has been now been cast. Anson Mount, who portrayed Cullen Bohannon AMC’s Hell on Wheels, will be Black Bolt.
The character of Blackagar Boltagon aka Black Bolt doesn’t talk much. He communicates with gestures and facial expressions. Mount will have the challenge of conveying the complexity of this character without saying a word. Mount did play the complex character of Cullen Bohannon for 5 seasons on AMC’s Hell on Wheels.
Black Bolt has a fantastic super ability with possible devastating side effects. The Terrigenesis gave Black Bolt the power of his voice. With just a whisper, he can destroy a city. He chooses his word wisely because when he uses them, destruction happens.
Mount is not the only member to be cast in Marvel’s The Inhumans. Iwan Rheon of Games of Thrones will be Maximus the Mad. Maximus just happens to be Black Bolt’s brother.
We can expect a cross over between Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. with Marvel’s The Inhumans. Both will be on ABC. Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been working with Inhumans for a couple of seasons. It is a logical place to jump start this new series.
