'Ramsay Bolton' on board Inhumans TV series

Iwan Rheon, popularly known as Ramsay Bolton in HBO's Game of Thrones has been cast in the lead role of Maximus in the “Marvel’s Inhumans” television series.

According to Marvel.com, “Marvel’s Inhumans” will explore the never-before-told epic adventure of Black Bolt and the royal family. In the series, Maximus is a clever and charming Inhuman that is fiercely devoted to the people of Attilan, especially his brother, the King – although he harbors an intense desire to wear the crown himself.

The first two episodes of the new ABC series, as previously announced, will premiere exclusively in IMAX theaters for two weeks in September 2017, prior to the network run.

“Marvel’s Inhumans”, which follows 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.

Head of Marvel Television and Executive Producer Jeph Loeb describes Iwan casting as "charming, roguish, and still completely unexpectedly dangerous were all the different sides we needed to bring the character to life" and they are thrilled to have him on board.

“Maximus is a complex character. Likable, charming, tragic and villainous all in the same moment, and I’m very excited to have someone of Iwan’s considerable talent”, said executive producer and showrunner, Scott Buck .

Currently, the status of the Inhumans are put on the spotlight and were pitted against the X-Men in the on-going Inhumans vs. X-Men arc.

The storyline depicts the Terrigen Mist that is loose on Earth reaching its saturation point. While people across the planet have manifested powers and therefore learned of their Inhuman heritage due to the mist cloud, it's also having a bad effect on the Mutants, resulting in many mutants getting sick and dying. The X-Men are determined to stop the Terrigen Mist at its source in order to avoid extinction while the Inhumans need the Terrigen to ensure the population of their species thrives.

"Marvel's Inhumans" will premiere on September 26, 2017.
