    He was really good in Rogue One. My choice is Pedro Pascal but I wouldn't have a problem with this at all.

    Yeah, I just saw Rogue One. If they could get him, that would be a steal.

    I don't know this actor at all. He better have that helmet though.

    No thanks. I've seen this guy plenty of times in the street. I'm sure most people here have worn a hoodie and jeans as well.

    These are the Inhumans royal family and I hope they have no contemporary fashion cues.

    This series can just be about Iwan Rheon and Ken Leung insulting each other verbally and it would be awesome.

    Well you'd think that Karnak should be hyper critical and know how to spot someone's weakness or insecurity to best insult them where it hurts.

    I don't know if they should make him quite sharp-tongued though, or whether he just has a quiet calm and picks his moments when needed in order to strike.

    That's his power and his burden. The man has no filter.

    So I'm expecting Leung to play him like a complete a-hole and to be very acid-tongued, much like how James Woods was in the "Shark" TV series.

    Eh. He's one of my least favorite actors from Lost. He was alright though in X3. I don't like this casting.

    And yes,no to that hoodie jacket. I don't want Karnak with that angsty emo look.

    Love it, another inspired choice. Not as inspired as Anson, but good job.

    I love Deigo Luna but I honestly see him more as Scorpion than Karnak.

    I'd go for something more like his Marvel Knights costume

    But with the more simple facial tattoos (and smaller forehead) of his current appearance

    I'm not sure whether I would prefer his classic mustache or his current unshaved look. Maybe start with the first and at some point change to the latter in a later season.

    I don't think he should have the helmet, except for maybe on special occasions or something.

    Likely a mixture of some sort, but I want some Kirby cues in this.

    I definitely want Kirby cues in this. Some might argue that Kirby's designs might not work at all these days, but that's what made them stand out.

    Marvel should set the tone rather than following whatever tone is accepted by everyone else.

    Yes please! Kirby centric designs all the way.

    Definitely. This should be operatic in every sense of the word.

    If they get rid of the Kirby designs, then Triton will probably just wear a green sharkskin wetsuit and Gorgon will have horse riding boots instead of horse hooves. I bet some will be perfectly okay with that.

    I can't see them going with the helmet unless it's just something he wears in battle. Just looking at the past MCU productions, they tend to prefer having the characters not be wearing masks or helmets unless it's for fight stuff. Not like the comics where the characters will just casually be in full costume all the time, even when just lounging around Avengers Mansion.

    Yeah, that's what I'm expecting.

    Actually, no, we've already seen them doing more outlandish Inhuman appearances on SHIELD.

    That's fine as long as we see it and the characters aren't all in black leather as Fox would do.

    There's a happy medium between doing the costumes exactly as they appear in the comics and putting everyone in black leather. Nobody is suggesting they be in black leather or not wear costumes at all, that I'm aware of.

    I understand I was using sarcasm. :yay: The MCU has found the perfect balance (imo) so I expect the same here, even though it's a Marvel TV (not Studios) production.
