Marvel’s The Inhumans Series Heads To IMAX Theaters & ABC

tumblr_ni50g4txu31rf5t8co1_1280

IMAX Corp., Marvel Television and Disney|ABC Television Group today announced an innovative agreement to exclusively premiere a new Marvel’s The Inhumans series in IMAX commercial theaters, marking the first time a live-action television series has debuted in this manner.

Under the agreement, a version of the first two episodes The Inhumans series – produced in conjunction with ABC Studios and filmed entirely with IMAX digital cameras – will run worldwide exclusively in IMAX for two weeks at the beginning of September 2017. ABC plans to then premiere the weekly series in fall, with additional exclusive content that can only be seen on the network.

The Inhumans, a race of superhumans with diverse and singularly unique powers, were first introduced in Marvel Comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965. Since that time, they have grown in prominence and become some of the most popular and iconic characters in the Marvel Universe. Marvel’s The Inhumans series will explore the never-before-told epic adventure of Black Bolt and the royal family.

ABC, IMAX and Marvel Television also intend to work together to create a joint marketing and promotion plan for the series across their proprietary media platforms – which would be the first such cross-platform marketing launch of a television series. Today’s agreement also marks IMAX’s first time as a financing participant in a TV pilot and series.

“This unprecedented alliance represents a bold, innovative approach to launching great TV content for a worldwide audience,” said Ben Sherwood, co-chairman, Disney Media Networks and president, Disney|ABC Television Group. “It highlights Disney|ABC’s unrelenting commitment to finding new and creative ways to showcasing our very best programming and increasing global engagement and reach.”

“This first-of-its-kind multi-platform production, distribution and marketing agreement brings together Marvel Television’s unique brand of entertainment, ABC’s unparalleled audience and IMAX’s brand and global fanboy demographic,” said IMAX CEO, Rich Gelfond. “It also takes our decades-long relationship with The Walt Disney Company to a whole new level, jointly breaking new ground in the industry. We are confident our exhibition partners will be excited to work with us on this innovative launch of a series across the IMAX network.”

“We’re happy to see this unique deal come together, working with our partners,” said Dan Buckley, President, Marvel Television, Publishing & Brand. “In an ever-changing world of distribution and consumption, it’s very exciting to be part of a groundbreaking initiative that takes us to the forefront of this evolution.”

New Poster For The ABC Series Premiere of Marvel’s Agent Carter Debuts

Marvel Entertainment and ABC have debuted a brand new poster for the upcoming “Marvel’s Agent Carter”.

It’s 1946 and peace has dealt Agent Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy finds herself stuck doing administrative work when she would rather be back out in the field, putting her vast skills into play and taking down the bad guys. But she is also trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life, Steve Rogers – a.k.a. Captain America. When old acquaintance Howard Stark finds himself being framed for unleashing his deadliest weapons to anyone willing to pony up the cash, he contacts Peggy — the only person he can trust — to track down those responsible, dispose of the weapons and clear his name. He empowers his butler, Edwin Jarvis, to be at her beck and call when needed to help assist her as she investigates and tracks down those responsible for selling these weapons of mass destruction. If caught going on these secret missions for Stark, Peggy could be targeted as a traitor and spend the rest of her days in prison – or worse.

Starring Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter, Chad Michael Murray as SSR Agent Jack Thompson, Enver Gjokaj as SSR Agent Daniel Sousa, James D’Arcy as Edwin Jarvis, and Shea Whigham as SSR Chief Roger Dooley, “Marvel’s Agent Carter” was written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. Executive producers are Tara Butters, Michele Fazekas, Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely, Chris Dingess, Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Joe Quesada, Stan Lee and Jeph Loeb.

“Marvel’s Agent Carter” is set to premiere January 6, 2015 on ABC.

Dark secrets are revealed as Coulson and his team put everything on the line to stop Garrett and the forces of Hydra during the explosive season finale of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. But when the dust settles, Coulson will find that no one’s leaving this battle unscathed.  And just when all hope seems lost, they’re joined by the one man who may be able to turn the tide – Nick Fury.

I couldn’t be happier that Marvel asked me to participate,” said Phantom City Creative’s Justin Erickson. “I grew up reading Marvel comics and enjoy what Marvel has been doing with their Cinematic Universe. With my previous Marvel work on Marvel’s The Avengers and Iron Man 3, I was thrilled to once again play in that world creatively. With this poster, I felt it was unique as it touched upon the events of the finale and spoke to the series as a whole. The season ends in a place where S.H.I.E.L.D. has been shattered from within by Hydra, and the team itself by Ward’s betrayal. Even after all that the team went through, they’re still standing together. The keen eyed viewer will notice that Ward is the only team member not on the S.H.I.E.L.D. logo and touching the Hydra logo.”
