The majesty of Kirby's Attilan? Nope.
A city full of fantastic looking powered individuals? Nope.
The royal family looking regal and powerful? Nope.
Any sense of a compelling story? Nope.
Medusa's hair? Nope.
Who's the show runner for this? Oh, that's right, Scott Buck, the show runner for Iron Fist, the story of a kung-fu hero from a mystical city who got his powers from a dragon that included no city, no dragon and hardly any kung-fu. Wonderful.
What the #$% did they use the Imax money on? It certainly wasn't the CG for Lockjaw, that's for damn sure.
I have to wonder if Jeph Loeb intentionally set this thing up to fail as an "FU" to Ike Perlmutter. I think everyone is sick of Ike's Inhuman initiative being shoved down their throats. It did no favors for Agents of SHIELD's ratings, it backfired spectacularly in the comics, and we know what Kevin Feige thought of an Inhumans movie.
ABC putting this on Friday was the first red flag. That move screams "we know this is !@#$ but we're contractually obligated to air it anyway".
Re: INHUMANS I know Shield's moving to Fridays as well, but from what I understand that'll be a good thing. Because the ratings it gets on a Tuesday barely justifies the production. But those ratings on a Friday would be great. In all honesty, back in the late 90s, Friday night on Fox was nerd heaven. Maybe they're trying something like that here too?
But back on the Inhumans topic, man this looks like ass. I mean, I'm the guy who tries to look optimistic toward everything and I'm saying this looks like dog balls.
Re: INHUMANS I thought Anson Mount gave Black Bolt a lot more personality than he ever had in the comics. Other than that, TV acting with TV writing on a TV budget from the show runner that brought you Iron Fist. The trailers made it look worse than it really is, but I'm still wondering where the Imax money went. I'll watch the rest of it on ABC if they stay in business for that long.
The whole Perlmutter v. Fox and Feige saga that created this thing in the first place was more entertaining.
