Fans have been waiting for it, and they have finally received the premiere date they’ve been wanting to hear for so long. ABC has revealed the premiere date for Marvel’s Inhumans TV, and it is set to be a part of the new fall line-up, but that is after the first two episodes will debut in IMAX theaters. Making matters even better is the fact that ABC revealed a new Inhumans poster as well, and it is awesome.
Marvel brings another TV series to ABC this fall
As reported by Yahoo TV, Marvel’s Inhumans is going to make its small-screen premiere on Friday, September 29. This is going to follow a two-week run in IMAX theaters, where fans will be able to view the first two episodes of the series on the big screen.
What’s interesting is that Marvel is going to finally allow a TV series to make it into theaters even though they keep those two worlds separated. There have been some mentions of events from the cinematic universe on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but never any real crossover.
There won’t be crossovers on Inhumans — at least not as of this writing — but the IMAX run will be a way for Marvel to see how a TV series does financially in a theater.

The new poster showcases the lead characters front and center with Maximus the Mad, Black Bolt, and Medusa. The symbol that surrounds them is one that fans of Black Bolt will be very familiar with, as he has had it for decades, even if it is altered a bit.
From movie to TV show, Inhumans is a long-time coming
A couple of years ago, Inhumans was listed as one of the major movies set to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As reported by the Inquisitr in April of last year, the movie was suddenly taken off of Marvel’s release schedule and no longer set to hit theaters in July of 2019.
There wasn’t a lot of information as to why it was removed, but months later, ABC revealed that Inhumans was going to become a TV show instead, as reported by SlashFilm. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige kept saying that an Inhumans movie was definitely going to happen, and it still might. For now, however, there will be weekly episodes in the fall.
Marvel has been extremely successful with characters on the small and big screens, but they haven’t really mingled together yet. Inhumans will have its chance in IMAX theaters for a short run, but it is indeed a television show and will remain as such for the time being. One can only wonder if those in Marvel’s TV universe will ever meet those in the cinematic universe, but it’s fun to think about.
