MARVEL’S INHUMANS – Medusa (Serinda Swan, Maximus (Iwan Rheon), Black Bolt (Anson Mount) – ABC/Marvel.
Marvel’s Inhumans was shot with IMAX cameras, so it doesn’t look like a typical pilot blown up to IMAX – with all the small screen inadequacies painfully apparent.
Instead, everything feels the right size, but the CG sets (the city of Attilan on the dark side of the moon) lack weight – which wouldn’t matter so much if the script was better and the acting of widely varied quality.

Images flash around a hard-faced Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) as he wields a sledgehammer to an intriguing final effect.

Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger won’t make it debut until next year, but Freeform has already released a teaser for the series.
As a fan of the original comic (too many years ago), I have to say that the trailer captures the essence of the comic – the duo’s situations prior to meeting each other; the hesitance as they discover their nunique bond, and, of course, their powers.
There’s even a very cool shout out to Cloak’s comics costume (blankets can do weird stuff…).
So, while we’re waiting for the show…
