Inhumans (TV series)
Marvel's Inhumans, or Inhumans, is an American television series created for ABC by Scott Buck, based on the Marvel Comics race of the same name. It is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, sharing continuity with the films and other television series of the franchise; the series is a Marvel and IMAX Entertainment project, produced by ABC Studios and Marvel Television in association with Devilina Productions. Buck served as showrunner; the series is centered on Black Bolt, portrayed by Anson Mount, other members of the Inhuman Royal Family. Serinda Swan, Ken Leung, Eme Ikwuakor, Isabelle Cornish, Ellen Woglom, Iwan Rheon star. Marvel Studios announced an Inhumans film in 2014 as part of their Phase Three slate of films, with the species first introduced to the MCU in Marvel's Agents of S. H. I. E. L. D; the film was removed from Marvel Studios' slate in April 2016, the Inhumans series was announced that November, to be filmed using IMAX cameras. Buck joined the series in October, Mount was cast in February 2017.
Filming took place from March to June 2017, at the former Naval Air Station Barbers Point airfield in Kalaeloa and various locations on the island of Oahu. Inhumans debuted on IMAX screens on September 1, 2017, the first live-action television series to debut in IMAX; the theatrical run lasted two weeks, before the series premiered on ABC on September 29 and ran for eight episodes, concluding on November 10. The series was met with unfavorable reviews and low television ratings, was canceled by ABC in May 2018. After a military coup, the Inhuman Royal Family escape to Hawaii, where they must save themselves and the world. Anson Mount as Black Bolt: The Head of the Inhuman Royal Family and King of Attilan, whose voice can cause destruction with the slightest whisper. Showrunner Scott Buck called Black Bolt enigmatic and fascinating because "a lot of times, we don't know what he's thinking", noted the difficulty of writing a character who "does not speak, but yet he is our hero and the center of the show".
Buck ruled out the series using voice over, with Black Bolt instead communicating via sign language. Premiere director Roel Reiné told Mount to just use 15 or 16 signs, but Mount decided to create his own sign system, he explained that since the character is not from Earth, he would not know Earth-based systems such as American Sign Language. Mount borrowed the underlying rules of ASL but "double-check my signs against ASL to make sure there is no overlap", studied orchestra conductors. Mount created a document for his language with over 50 pages, felt that if he could develop the language over several seasons, it could become a full conlang equivalent to Klingon or Dothraki. Sometimes the script would not include any specific lines for the character, Mount would develop what he was signing himself. Lofton Shaw portrays a young Black Bolt. Serinda Swan as Medusa: The wife of Black Bolt and Queen of Attilan, who has the ability to control and move her hair. Swan described "an immense codependence between" Medusa and Black Bolt, with Medusa helping Black Bolt create his sign language and forming a connection together that creates "this symbiosis that keeps them intertwined".
Swan took extra care to act alongside the character's hair as an additional appendage, before CGI was added to augment the 4 pounds wig she wore on set. Swan said that Medusa's hair would "have moods" as in the comics, that it would move and react differently in various situations, such as being more restrained in public so as to not be distracting to others. V. I. P. Portrays a young Medusa. Ken Leung as Karnak: Black Bolt's cousin and closest adviser, who can "see the fault in all things", avoiding errors, acts as the Royal Family's strategist and philosopher. Executive producer Jeph Loeb explained that because of Karnak's ability, "everything he sees is flawed, so nothing is quite good enough for him. It's at the point where the glass isn't half empty, it's shattered." Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon: Black Bolt's cousin and leader of Attilan's Royal Guard, who can generate seismic waves with his cattle-like hooves. Ikwuakor described Gorgon as "the guy who kind of acts before he thinks". Isabelle Cornish as Crystal: Medusa's sister and the youngest member of the Royal Family, who has the ability to control the elements.
Cornish said Crystal is "really coming of age" and is going on "the journey of coming into her adulthood and discovering more of her powers and things like that". Leila Bootsma portrays a young Crystal. Ellen Woglom as Louise: A human from Earth who works at Callisto Aerospace Control Center with a personal passion for space and things related to the Moon. Woglom described Louise as "incredibly smart focused" and a "fun", "quirky" character, she added that Louise "sort of has blinders on" about her love of space and the Moon, which "can sometimes cause her to maybe not pick up on social cues all the time, or maybe say things without thinking about them first". Buck noted. Iwan Rheon as Maximus: Black Bolt's brother, who has a strong devotion to the people of Attilan and a desire to be king himself. Maximus lost the Inhuman gene when going through the Terrigenesis process, which led to the character being looked down on by other Inhumans. Rheon said Maximus is the "runt of the family, kind of hard for him.
Without his brother he'd be working down in the mines... because he's the King's brother, he got pity, basically." Buck called Rheon's version of the character "a different, more complicated, more real, more compelling version" than the comic counterpart as the writers "didn't want to create just a simple villain who's evil for the sake of being evil", with Rheon adding that "

A feature film of the animated television series is in the works and is scheduled for a July 17, 2020 release. On February 12, 2019, Fox renewed the series for a tenth season; the show centers on the Belcher family—Bob and their children Tina and Louise. The family runs a burger restaurant on Ocean Avenue in an unnamed seaside community. While series creator Loren Bouchard has said that the show's location was an indeterminate Northeastern United States shore town", some critics after the episode "It Snakes a Village", have deduced that the unidentified setting appears to be southern New Jersey. A bus driver in the episode "Eat, Linda" references a stop at Wildwood Wharf, which may refer to Wildwood, New Jersey, a city on the southeastern coast of the state.
Bob's Burgers is located in a green two-story building which features an apartment on the second floor where the Belcher family lives. The restaurant is sandwiched between two other commercial buildings, one of which houses "It's Your Funeral Home and Crematorium", whose owner Mort is a regular at the restaurant. One of the show's running gags involves the other building, shown with a different new business in it each week. During the episode at some point the building ends up vacated again, it has been home to such businesses as "Uncle Marty's Breast Pumps", "Extra Moist Yoga", "That's a-Door-a-Bell Doorbells", "Tire-Rhea". Bob must compete with several other eateries for business, his biggest rival is Jimmy Pesto, who owns an Italian restaurant called “Jimmy Pesto’s Pizzeria”, located directly across the street. It attracts many more customers than Bob's Burgers. Jimmy enjoys humiliating Bob, an example being in the episode “Burgerboss”, when he got a higher score on an arcade machine than Bob, who had rented the game, taunted him by putting "BOB SUX" as his initials.
The hatred between Bob and Jimmy is full of humor. Although they dislike each other, Bob's daughter, shows obsessive interest toward Pesto's eldest son, Jimmy Junior. However, it is unclear how Jimmy Jr. feels toward Tina, although he always tries to get her back when she expresses interest in other boys. He approves of her erotic friend fiction, starring himself, in "Bad Tina". Although they may be technically dating after Tina asked him out in an early episode, he tends to forget they are dating because he is always occupied with activities, such as spending time with best friend and wrestling buddy and dancing by himself. Bob's restaurant has seen its fair share of bad luck. For example, in the show's opening, the property falls victim to a fire, an infestation of vermin, a broken front window caused by a car knocking down a utility pole. In spite of all this, Bob does have a small but loyal group of regular customers, including the aforementioned Mort, Teddy, a local handyman; the Belcher family runs a hamburger restaurant.
Bob Belcher is one of the main protagonists of the show and owner of "Bob's Burgers." He is the husband to Linda and father to Tina and Louise. He is 47 years old. Bob was born to an unnamed mother and Big Bob who ran a diner called "Big Bob's Diner." Bob had a unhappy childhood as his mother died when he was young and his father was an alcoholic who forced Bob to work. He is known to never smile. Bob is the more sensible one of the bunch though he isn't afraid to get petty and is stubborn and exasperated. Despite his somewhat pessimistic personality, he loves and cares for his family much as well as his restaurant. Bob has black eyes. Many fans suspect that the family is of Ashkenazi Jewish, Greek, Italian, or Armenian background, though it is confirmed Bob is of French or French Canadian descent due to his surname; the show's official wiki reveals that his height is 6’1. Linda Belcher is one of the main protagonists of the show and wife to Bob and mother to Tina and Louise, she is a positive contrast to her husband's pessimism.
Linda is laid back and obliviously enthusiastic in whatever she does. Linda is shown to be supportive, such
