The first trailer for Marvel's Inhumans TV series has gone live. And before we go any further, you should probably watch it just so you have context for what people are saying:
So, yeah. It does what it needs to: sets up our major conflict (the Inhumans are a group of superpowered space-dwellers who want to live on Earth, the king's brother is leading a rebellion against him) and introduces us to our main cast.
Unfortunately, initial reactions make it seem like this could be Marvel's first major flop, as Twitter is abuzz with negative comments and criticism. From the poor quality of the costumes (which echoes what people thought when the first promo pics were released) to the questionable acting and logical inconsistencies, people by and large are not happy.
Viewers also took umbrage at the way the show has portrayed Medusa so far. In the comics, the redhead can control her long locks and they are said to be impossibly strong. She is also, perhaps even more so than king Black Bolt, seen as a leader of her people. In the trailer she's... well, you tell 'em, Twitter.
If there is a silver lining to be found, it's that pretty much everyone loves Lockjaw, the giant teleporting dog. The internet is a sucker for a good boy.
