Iwan Rheon, best known as the villainous bastard Ramsay Bolton in Game Of Thrones, has taken the lead in Marvel and ABC's The Inhumans TV series. Rheon will be playing Maximus, brother, to the King of The Inhumans Black Bolt.
Head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb made the following statement on Rheon's casting.
"Iwan's ability to be charming, roguish, and still completely unexpectedly dangerous were all the different sides we needed to bring the character to life."
The eight-episode series will debut this Autumn in the US and the first two episodes will be filmed in IMAX. Scott Buck, the showrunner of Marvel and Netflix's Iron Fist has apparently been appointed to head up the series. Contrary to rumours, the series has not replaced the planned The Inhumans movie that was planned for 2019, before being delayed indefinitely.
