Both Sides Of Marvel To Blame For Inhumans TV Show: Fast Side And Cheap Side

It certainly looks that way.

There's an old saying in business that a project can be two of three things: fast, cheap, or good. The director of the first two Inhumans episodes, Roel Reiné, spoke to Cnet about why he was chosen for the job. His background in low-budget action movies (Death Race 2The Scorpion King 3) means he brings fast and cheap to the table, with good nowhere to be seen. 

"I think they liked me for the job because I was able with my action movies to shoot in a very short time, or with very low budgets, action that looks like a big-budget movie," he said. "It was not a feature film, it was a TV episode, but they still wanted to have the scope."

Reiné is the perfect choice for Marvel to make as they have two sides as well: fast and cheap. (That's cheap for them, not the consumer. Shareholders and all.) At a recent screening the old saying was confirmed as Executive Producer Jeph Loeb was nearly seen foaming at the mouth in defense of the show's quality, or lack thereof.

Inhumans stars Iwan Rheon as Maximus The Mad, Serinda Swan as Medusa, Ken Leung as Karnak, Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Sonya Balmores as Auran, Mike Moh as Triton, Isabelle Cornish as Crystal, Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Ellen Woglom as Louise, and Lockjaw as itself.

Inhumans is set to release on Friday, September 29 with a two-hour premiere at 8 PM on ABC.
