Marvel has revealed their casting choice for the lead in the upcoming show “Inhumans” which debuts on IMAX theaters for a two week run this September before moving to network television at ABC on September 26. Anson Mount, from “Hell On Wheels,” will be playing the king and Inhumans leader Black Bolt. This is significant because every Inhuman has a special ability and Black Bolt's ability is his devastatingly powerful voice. As a result, Black Bolt is forced to do a lot of silent communication, which will prove to be an interesting challenge for Anson Mount who is used to yelling his lungs out on “Hell on Wheels.”

Jeph Loeb loves him

"Anson loves the challenge of playing a character who will only communicate silently," Marvel TV head and executive producer Jeph Loeb said.

"His enthusiasm mixed with his imposing almost regal persona made it easy to see why he is our Black Bolt."

All the celebrities!

Anson Mount joins Iwan Rheon, who was cast as Black Bolt's brother Maximus, as the latest casting choice for the “Inhumans” which debuts in September. This is highly unique because Black Bolt and Maximus are not only siblings, but Maximus often plots against his own brother. Both characters have a relationship similar to Thor and Loki's sibling bickering, so it will be interesting to see how Black Bolt conducts himself with his brother. Rheon has a history of playing a demented villain on “Game of Thrones,” so he should wear the mantle of Maximus well. Mount has quite a mane of hair and a stoic presence, so he is definitely a welcomed choice by the fans of the comic.

Both men handled intense drama quite well on their own shows, so it will be interesting to see how the brotherly relationship between Black Bolt and Maximus will be portrayed.

More casting to come

Given the announcement of Black Bolt's casting, fans of the “Inhumans” are still wondering who else will join the star-studded cast for the September premiere.

Karnak and Medusa are still left to cast, along with a slew of other unique characters. However, despite who else joins the cast, the show is off to a great start with the casting of Rheon and Mount. The two of them will play characters that will forge a rivalry that will likely carry the show, so the drama will be interesting to watch as it all unfolds.

Inhumans” is set to debut the first two episodes on IMAX screens in September for two weeks and then the show will move over to network television to finish up the rest of the six episodes.
