Marvel's 'Inhumans' Sets a September Release Date for Their IMAX Premiere
Marvel
Despite all of the great (and not so great - looking at you, Iron Fist) TV shows that Marvel Studios has produced in recent years, they haven't ever done anything as big as their upcoming Inhumans series. In fact, no one has ever done anything as big as Inhumans' premiere.

The show is premiering its first two episodes exclusively in IMAX theaters (after having been shot exclusively with IMAX cameras) before playing out on ABC, a setup that has never been employed for any TV show in history. So obviously anticipation is high for the show, and now we know exactly when we can expect this awesomeness to occur. And thankfully, it's sooner than the last date we heard.

Back in November, it was reported that the IMAX premiere of the show would take place on Labor Day. September 4. But yesterday, Marvel confirmed that the premiere date will actually be September 1 - obviously not a huge difference, but we're happy to hear that we'll get to see Inhumans a few days sooner than we previously thought. Marvel is still playing coy with the exact release date on ABC, simply stating that the show will premiere "this fall." But with previous reports claiming that the series would run exclusively in theaters for two weeks before heading to TV, September 14 seems like a logical destination for the show's television premiere - but don't quote us on that.



Now, before you get too excited and start camping out in front of your nearest IMAX theater, allow us to pour just a little water on your anticipation fire. While we're still confident that Inhumans will be awesome, we are just a *tad* worried that the series has the same showrunner as Iron Fist, Scott Buck. We were totally fine with that before Iron Fist premiered, but now that the show has the distinction of being the first rotten thing Marvel Studios has ever produced - by a mile - we're not that excited about the idea.

Iron Fist is very flawed, from its acting to its writing to its fight choreography to its pacing (just about everything, really), and we're a bit concerned that if Buck couldn't handle that series, then he'll have even more trouble with Inhumans, which as far as we can tell is a much larger production. The shorter runtime - 8 episodes for Inhumans compared to 13 for Iron Fist - may help Buck, but we're still worried that he won't be able to pull it off.

Then again, when your show features a giant teleporting dog, how can anyone possibly mess that up?

Inhumans premieres in IMAX theaters starting September 1, 2017, before moving to ABC.
