Inhumans Director Did NOT Like The First Trailer For The Series

A lot of fans were a bit disappointed when Marvel decided to make Inhumans a series instead of a movie, and the release of the trailers didn't impress anybody at all. As it turns out, even Inhumans director Roel Reine wasn't impressed with the promo released for the series, and he admits some of the CGI wasn't ready when the trailer was released.

In an interview with Metro, Reine admitted:


"I was mixed about the first trailer as well. I felt like it didn't give you the scope, it didn't give you a lot of secrets or visual effects. I felt it was a little bit too early because the visual effects were not ready – Medusa's hair was not ready. So I was really nervous about it and would think the fans would not really like it. The trailer was made by other people, so I was really nervous about it when I saw it. So I was like, ‘oh guys maybe we should hold off', but it was too late because it was already in the open."

You would think that Marvel fans would graciously accept something like Inhumans with open arms, but it looks like a lot of them are very weary on the release of the show. Everybody knows that there's a certain dip in quality when it came to Marvel TV shows, and a giant CGI Lockjaw or an IMAX release won't be enough to keep fans eager to see Inhumans.

Reine was pleased with the second trailer, however, and he says that it was able to get people to reconsider their stance on Inhumans:

"I'm very happy we kind of changed it around. The second trailer really got all the fans back on track and they really like it now and they really want to see it. I was really happy with that second trailer."

For all we know, Inhumans will actually be pretty good. The villain will be played by Iwan Rheon who everybody knows as the incredibly vile Ramsay Bolton from Game of Thrones. I'm not expecting him to be as menacing in this show, but let's give it a chance.

Inhumans hits IMAX Sept. 1, with the series premiering on ABC on Sept. 29.
