    If they have another crack at doing Gorgon I want proper hooves similar to this. Otherwise don't even bother.

    They could have a few establishing shots with him in the CGI hooves then just film him from the waist up 90% of the time.

    If he has to mingle with humans, give him a trench coat. You still save money on CGI without compromising the authenticity of Gorgons legs.

    I don't want to see those man high heels ever again.

    I just posted this in the AoS forum, but I figured it's worth repeating here...

    I've noticed that they haven't given up on Inhumans in AoS with the introduction of Flint and Kasisus breeding inhumans for profit. Why not do some kind of spin off Inhumans show with characters that fans actually know and are more familiar with, like Yoyo, Quake, Flint etc. They could bring in Reader as a lead and re-brand/reintroduce Inhumans in a better show than the garbage they released last year.

    It could centre around Enilux and have Reader as lead. They could explore how Enilux functions in plain sight like the Inhumans MIB or something. Few episodes worth of Material with Leader recruiting Inhumans for Enilux.

    Feels weird to believe the guy in charge of the ABC website would know about the cancellation before any official announcement, but oh well. I still think the numbers were fine for a Friday (and I doubt ABC lost money), so I hoped they could have retooled it and seen what a second season could do. But I also can't see them expecting the ratings to increase and IMAX likely isn't going to give them more money, so it's not crazy to think the show would be too expensive this time around.

    Short of it airing on the Disney streaming site, it's likely it won't continue.

    Hm. Is this the end for the royal family as far as live-action is concerned? Would be odd to reintroduce them in a film- even though the movies pay no mind to TV shows- and depending on whether SHIELD continues, could they be brought up there?

    My friend a Star Trek writer, suggest that due to the IMAX release there would not be the money problems that characters which made their first appearance on a TV show, the agents other than Coulson, face. So it would solely be a creative decision without economic rights being held by a TV writer being taken into account.

    It doesn't look like that was the case at all.

    If he is correct about a post TV writer's strike contract what wasn't the case? That economics and setting a precedent of paying a TV writer for a comics character use would not be done. Or strickly art based and there really is not the need to cameo another enhanced being working a fee blocks away from the Avengers instead of showcasing normal people fighting back like a glimpse of the National Guard and police in New York rather than say showing Jessica Jones rescue a random person. Or in a future case Black Bolt destroying some object. He seems to think money issues would prevent the former but not the latter due to the IMAX deal

    I don't think any of us are shocked by this move. This is the first outright flop for Marvel, and I am curious to see what the eventual fate of the royal family is. Was there a planned AoS crossover? If so, was that abandoned? Will they be rebooted many years down the line, or just frozen indefinitely? So many questions.

    What's shocking to me is they had a high enough budget and attention for it and it was so underwhelming terrible. It was as if MARVEL intentionally wanted to sink this thing.

    I wanted to like to like this show. I really did. But I gave up after the first three episodes because of how dull and idiotic it was. It’s a shame, too. The Inhuman royal family could be interesting characters. We could have a new view of a different side of the MCU. Instead, the show was nothing more than a vanity project for Ike Perlmutter. It’s sad that these characters were wasted in such a mediocre show.

    Well I guess it needed to flop for him to learn the hard way (if he does) and to see that he shouldn't be pushing this.

    The Inhumans will be rebooted, with this show swiftly forgotten. Most everyone wants to forget this embarrassment as much as Marvel.

    From what I’ve heard about Perlmutter, I doubt he will.

    Reboot as in a full origin story or just recast and use the characters in say a Fantastic Four 3 movie? There is only so much screen time available with the mutants probably back into the MCU. If they should show up in a FF I think that they would just be there as enhanced people in the background as part of the exponential increase of the enhanced. I hate to say it but the model would look like X-Men The Last Stand.

    I think that the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will have a lock on the story of the Inhuman concept. As to a crossover of a royal character or two I would not be surprised, assuming AoS survives long enough for it to happen. The actors may have hoped for a series but I don't think any of them will blow off a payday.

    So he'll be like Avi Arad with Venom, and will push an Inhumans cinematic universe?

    I wouldn't say "vanity project" more like a desperate grasp to boost Inhuman's profile and profit from it. The general theory is that he wants them to be a stand in for the X-men. I wouldn't be surprised if the only reason this was greenlit was because he threw a fit about it

    Hopefully with the Disney/Fox deal he won't feel the need to push anymore.

    I've just started watching the Netflix show Altered Carbon, and it's triggered me into b!+ching about Inhumans yet again.

    For a tv show this has a phenomenal budget, and has the vast super advanced city scapes I wanted to see from Atillan. Heck even Agents of Shield had some pretty clean looking CGI ships and space scenery.

    Inhumans could still be done on tv budget, but they really need some time, money and attention to detail.

    Anyway, rant over. I'm going to cry myself to sleep. :oldrazz: :csad:

    Attilan should've been like Jack Kirby art insanity come to life. Sakkar in Ragnarok had more Kirby touches.

    Budget would restrain the Kirby insanity, but seriously, they should have easily been able to do much better than "barely adorned concrete rooms".

    This was just a cheaply made product just to make the Inhumans popular.

    Just watched the first episode of Krypton. They've captured everything I wanted from Inhumans.
    Great sets, great CGI, space political intrigue. They even have there own caste system.

    For what it's worth, Krypton has been in development for 4 years, and they also had the head start of the MoS concepts and designs.

    Inhumans had 8 months!! I still can't get over the arrogance of the studios thinking they could make a show with this kind of an epic scale in 8 freaking months.
