One of the most frequent questions surrounding Marvel’s Inhumans is how it fits into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Second would be how it ties in with the inhumans from Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD.
Executive Producer Scott Buck and co-star Ellen Woglom spoke with CBR at Comic-Con about how the two shows are connected.
He explained that the inhuman royal family and SHIELD inhumans like Daisy and Yo-Yo are distant relatives.
“We have seen ‘nuhumans’ on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but this is completely different,” said Buck. “These are Inhumans who know exactly who they are and know the importance of their powers. They know the importance of their Terrigen ceremony which is the holiest, most ritual ceremony in their civilization. I think the ‘nuhumans’ who inhabit Earth have no idea what’s going on. They are distant relatives of our characters.”
The ties between the two shows is made clear in Triton’s (Mike Moh) mission to investigate Terrigen presence in the ocean. This is the plot of SHIELD’s season two finale where humans exposed to certain fish products went through terrigenesis and discovered their inhuman abilities.
Woglom plays Louise, a human scientist who becomes the viewer’s entry into the story.
“I am the eyes and ears for the audience,” said Woglom. “The audience will learn about this world, and I’ll be discovering it simultaneously with everyone else.”
Buck also confirmed Louise and other Inhumans characters knowledge of MCU events such as the Battle of New York and the presence of inhumans on Earth.
“She’s aware of everything that’s happened in the world. All of our characters are aware of what’s happened in the Marvel Universe,” said Buck. “She’s aware that there are people out there who possess super powers, so she’ll be a little bit more ready to be among them.”
Marvel’s Inhumans stars Anson Mount, Serinda Swan, Ken Leung, Eme Ikwuakor, Isabelle Cornish, Ellen Woglom, Sonya Balmores, Iwan Rheon, and premieres in IMAX theaters Sept. 1 followed by a debut on ABC Friday, Sept. 29 at 9 pm.
