Iwan Rheon Cast as Maximus in ‘Marvel’s Inhumans’
We’re about 7 months away from the premiere of Marvel’s upcoming ‘Inhuman’ series on ABC. So far not much news has dropped about the project, besides that they’re shooting some scenes in Hawaii. We also caught wind of a possible working title and character breakdowns. Well it looks like today Marvel finally decided to give us some official news. Marvel has announced that Iwan Rheon (Game of thrones) has been cast in the lead role of Maximus in the “Marvel’s Inhumans” television series.
Here is the character description for Maximus:
In the series, Maximus is a clever and charming Inhuman that is fiercely devoted to the people of Attilan, especially his brother, the King – although he harbors an intense desire to wear the crown himself.
Jeph Loeb, Head of Marvel Television and Executive Producer said:
“Iwan’s ability to be charming, roguish, and still completely unexpectedly dangerous were all the different sides we needed to bring the character to life. We’re thrilled to have him on board.”
Added executive producer and showrunner, Scott Buck also gave his thoughts about the casting:
“Maximus is a complex character. Likable, charming, tragic and villainous all in the same moment, and I’m very excited to have someone of Iwan’s considerable talent.”
It was previously announced the first two episodes of the new ABC series will premiere exclusively in IMAX theatres for a two-week window in September 2017, prior to the network run.
