ANSON MOUNT JOINS 'MARVEL'S INHUMANS' ON ABC
The "Hell on Wheels" star to lead the Inhumans as Black Bolt!
â€śHell on Wheelsâ€ť star Anson Mount has landed the lead role of Black Bolt in the â€śMarvelâ€™s Inhumansâ€ť television series. â€śMarvelâ€™s Inhumansâ€ť will explore the never-before-told epic adventure of the royal family including Black Bolt, the enigmatic, commanding King of the Inhumans, with a voice so powerful that the slightest whisper can destroy a city.
It was previously announced that a version of the first two episodes of the new ABC series will premiere exclusively in IMAXÂ® theatres for a two-week window in September 2017, prior to the 8-episode network run.
â€śMarvelâ€™s Inhumans,â€ť were first introduced in Marvel Comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965. Since that time, they have grown in prominence and become some of the most popular and iconic characters in the Marvel Universe.
â€śAnson loves the challenge of playing a character who will only communicate silently,â€ť said Jeph Loeb, Head of Marvel Television and Executive Producer. â€śHis enthusiasm mixed with his imposing almost regal persona made it easy to see why he is our Black Bolt.â€ť
Added executive producer and showrunner Scott Buck, â€śBlack Bolt is a character whose deep complexity must be conveyed without uttering a single word, and Iâ€™m very excited to have Anson on board to bring him to life.â€ť
Marvel recently announced that Iwan Rheon (â€śGame of Thrones,â€ť â€śMisfitsâ€ť â€śViciousâ€ť) will portray Maximus, a clever and charming Inhuman that is fiercely devoted to the people of Attilan, especially his brother, Black Bolt â€“though he harbors an intense desire to wear the crown himself.
â€śMarvelâ€™s Inhumansâ€ť is executive produced by Scott Buck (â€śDexter,â€ť â€śMarvelâ€™s Iron Fistâ€ť) along with Jeph Loeb (â€śMarvelâ€™s Daredevil,â€ť â€śMarvelâ€™s Jessica Jones,â€ť â€śMarvelâ€™s Luke Cageâ€ť) and Jim Chory (â€śMarvelâ€™s Daredevil,â€ť â€śMarvelâ€™s Jessica Jones,â€ť â€śMarvelâ€™s Luke Cageâ€ť) with Buck serving as showrunner. Roel Reine (â€śAdmiral,â€ť â€śBlack Sailsâ€ť) will direct the first two episodes. The series is co-produced by Marvel Television and ABC Studios.
