Anson Mount, which is totally a real name and not an alias, has been cast as the lead character Black Bolt in IMAX/ABC's Marvel's Inhumans. The leaked call sheet describes him as "male, 30-40, Caucasian. Can say volumes with just a look. Strong thoughtful and private, he's unaccustomed to being questioned or feeling a need to answer to anyone, to an extent can verge on arrogance."

Black Bolt (aka Blackagar Boltagon) was introduced in 1965's "Fantastic Four" #65 by co-creators Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, and has proven to be an integral part of the Marvel Universe ever since. The character's power — the uncontrollable ability to harness electrons and convert their energy into devastating power unleashed through his voice — is also his greatest curse, as his slightest whisper is powerful enough to level entire cities. As a result, his wife and queen, the as-yet uncast Medusa, has traditionally spoken for him, conveying his thoughts to his court and the rest of the world.

Iwan Rheon was previously cast as the genital-lopping Maximus The Mad last week. The Inhumans tv show will debut in IMAX before premiering on ABC on Tuesday, September 26, 2017.
