This series is appearing "dead on arrival"... what a fuckin' blown opportunity Inhumans seems to be. (too many poor choices it seems.*)


*Yes... Christina Hendricks as Medusa would've been GREAT!!

I think the poster copy is being misinterpreted - the copy is distinguishing between the IMAX show and the series. Even if they did decide internally to cancel it, I don't think they would announce it before it premieres.

The Epicstream article linked above cites a source (Renew Cancel TV) that is speculating it is done, but Epicstream states it definitively. I don't see the industry or mainstream press reporting this.

Premiering Inhumans on IMAX was a big mistake. The move raised everyone's expectations of a network T.V. show to the level of Marvel's cinematic releases. Which suggests that the execs in charge of Marvel's T.V. stuff aren't even paying attention to their own product. They probably think Agents of SHIELD would be as successful as Guardians of the Galaxy, if given a bigger FX and marketing budget.

Premiering any TV show in a theater is a lousy idea - those initial STAR WARS CLONE WARS episodes played just fine as TV episodes, but they didn't work strung together as a movie.

I think premiering in IMAX is a great marketing idea, but marketing should not lead these kinds of decisions.

I'm still checking it out when it premieres on TV.

Think of how these characters were simply WASTED for this ill conceived TV effort.  

I know Kevin Feige and Ike Purlmutter had a bit of a pissing contest surrounding Inhumans (that Feige obviously won) but he still can't be happy to see what appears to be a true, dismal failure coming out of the gate for Marvel Studios.  

I'd almost prefer the show not ever air in hopes that the IP can be introduced properly on the big screen SOMEDAY.

Brian - what's the difference if it's a good show? That doesn't matter to the networks and cable channels. Does it draw viewers and sell commercials? That's the only concern. Otherwise, shows such as "Duck Dynasty" or "Deadliest Catch", or most reality shows, might not be hitting quite so big.

But "a good show"? That doesn't matter the least little bit. I'm not sure it has for fifty years now.

My comment was more a response to David saying he would rather the show not air. If it's a good show that represents the characters well, I want to see it.
