HELL ON WHEELS Anson Mount Lands Black Bolt Role In MARVEL’S INHUMANS TV Series
Hell on Wheels star Anson Mount has landed the lead role of Black Bolt in the Marvel’s Inhumans television series. Marvel’s Inhumans will explore the never-before-told epic adventure of the royal family including Black Bolt, the confounding, summoning King of the Inhumans, with a voice so effective that the smallest whisper can devastate a city.
Jeph Loeb, Head of Marvel Television and Executive Producer said:
“Anson loves the challenge of playing a character who will only communicate silently. His enthusiasm mixed with his imposing almost regal persona made it easy to see why he is our Black Bolt.”
Executive producer and showrunner Scott Buck added:
“Black Bolt is a character whose deep complexity must be conveyed without uttering a single word, and I’m very excited to have Anson on board to bring him to life.”
It was previously announced that a version of the first two episodes of the new ABC series will debut only in IMAX theaters for a two-week window in September 2017, preceding the 8-scene organize run.
Marvel’s Inhumans, 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 recently announced that Iwan Rheon (Game of Thrones, Misfits, Vicious) will portray Maximus, a clever and charming Inhuman that is fiercely devoted to the people of Attilan, especially his brother, Black Bolt –though he harbors an intense desire to wear the crown himself.
