    This is fantastic casting. Maybe this can now steer us toward who will play his brother Blackagar.

    Not really, but I like it. Easier to say.

    Good to finally get some casting news. Can a mod change the title to Iwan Rheon is Maximus soon?

    Well it probably rolls of the tongue more easily if you put "Marvel's" in front of it than "Marvel's The Inhumans."

    And here is a comparison photo

    Now don't go and give him a different hairstyle like they've done with Jon Bernthal, whose real life hair is more Punisher-like than any of his hairstyles in his Punisher appearances.

    Is he likely to be more the main character than Blackbolt, who is unlikely to have many lines?

    And what's the likelihood he's going to try to seduce Medusa or Crystal?

    I would expect Medusa, Black Bolt and Maximus would be co-leads.

    I enjoyed him in Game Of Thrones and Misfits.

    Save Me Barry!

    Oh man, this great casting, he is perfect for Maximus, though I hope he isn't the main character as the report states.

    If this were a big budget movie on the big screen, I wouldn't have minded someone like Joaquin Phoenix in the role.

    Anyway, I hope we get more calibre actors cast. Elysia Rotaru as Medusa doesn't sound too promising. She's okay in what she's done, but I don't really see her as such a strong lead. Would anyone say she's on the level of Iwan Rheon for those who know?

    Ooo how I hated him on Game of Thrones. He is a fantastic actor, if the writing is good he will be hated once again.

    Well Maximus had a thing with Medusa in the comics, like at one point he kissed Medusa like in a very disrespecful way so it won't surprise me if that happens in this show.

    He might try to spy on her when she's in her bikini or surfboard in Hawaii.

    Well I don't think he's that malicious but who knows, he might have a thing for women with really Long hair.

    This show is on ABC not HBO. I don't think they will do stuff like that.

    Have you seen Scandal, Quantico, American Crime and How to Get Away with Murder? It's not a kid network.

    Its still a Marvel show on ABC not HBO or Netflix. It will be pg 13 Games of Thrones in space and that's fine.

    I'm fine with the casting. Obviously, Maximus isn't as depraved as Ramsay Bolton, but he is at times very unhinged. He's called Maximus the Mad for a reason.

    You know which issue of the inhumans I was talking about right? That forceful kiss would easily pass the Pg13 rating.

    And I don't see what's so R rated about Inhumans that some stuff would only be okay to air on HBO and Netflix and not ABC.
