The next Marvel TV series will hit theaters before it lands on ABC. Marvel’s Inhumans will play its first two episodes on IMAX screens, albeit as a shorter cut. From showrunner Scott Buck (Iron Fist), Inhumans is a more family friendly show than Marvel’s Netflix offerings. It’s about superheroes who live on the moon, but come down to Hawaii with their teleporting dog Lockjaw.
Black Bolt (Anson Mount) is the silent king of Attilan, the Inhumans’ home on the moon. He communicates with his Queen Medusa (Serinda Swan) via a sign language that Mount created himself (so far it’s a 50 page Google doc, he says). When Black Bolt’s brother Maximus leads an uprising, the Inhumans flee to Earth where their adventure begins.
Buck spoke with /Film at the ABC party for the Television Critics Association.

There’s not much footage here (about 11 seconds), but it is our first look at this long-gestating project. Let’s hope the rest of the series lives up to the show’s high aspirations.

Last month Marvel announced plans for an ABC series centered around the Inhumans, a superpowered group that will be familiar to Marvel Comics readers, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. watchers, and probably not many others. So to help launch this new small-screen property, they’re calling upon some help from an old friend. Scott Buck will serve as showrunner on Inhumans, after fulfilling the same role for another upcoming Marvel drama, Netflix’s Iron Fist. Read More »

We met Daredevil on his eponymous series earlier this year, and Jessica Jones on her own series last month. Jessica Jones also included the first appearance of Luke Cage, who’s now off prepping his own show to debut in 2016. But the fourth and final member of Netflix’s Defenders, Iron Fist, has remained shrouded in mystery. So much so, that rumors cropped up claiming Netflix and Marvel were ditching the previously announced Iron Fist TV series altogether.
But that’s not the case. In fact, Iron Fist has just taken one big step forward, hiring Dexter and Six Feet Under alum Scott Buck to serve as showrunner. More about the new Iron Fist showrunner after the jump. Read More »

Series finales tend to be controversial even under the best of circumstances, but the reaction to Dexter‘s “Remember the Monsters?” hasn’t been polarized so much as overwhelmingly negative. While a handful of critics had nice things to say, most fans howled at its many ludicrous twists and lack of closure, and basically wondered why the hell they’d spent eight seasons waiting for this.
Even so, not surprisingly, showrunner Scott Buck stands by his decisions. “This is absolutely the ending I wanted,” he said in a post-finale interview. Meanwhile, one of Buck’s predecessors, Clyde Phillips, has some ideas of his own about where the show should’ve gone. Here’s a hint: It doesn’t involve lumberjacking. Hit the jump to read what they said. (Spoilers follow.)

Briefly: Showtime’s hit series Dexter is winding down; this season will be the show’s last. My own interest in the show ran out a long time ago, but there’s still an audience for the murderous antics and strange family machinations of Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall). The Season 8 episodes to air so far are getting great ratings.
While Dexter is ending, Showtime just signed producer/showrunner Scott Buck to a two-year contract. When asked about the possibility of a Dexter spin-off, Showtime Entertainment President David Nevins referred to that deal and said “draw your own conclusions.” He added more later, according to EW, saying “we are really not dealing with it at all until we are through with this season and maybe a while thereafter.”
So while there’s not a lot to go on there, that answer is not a “no.” While it’s too early to guess how this season will end, and who’ll be left alive, place your bets on what character(s) might be the focus of a spin-off below.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Any time I learn about a new David Fincher project I take the news with a certain degree of skepticism. Fincher is a filmmaker who gets involved with projects left and right, but many never go beyond the development stage. It’s the way the town works in general, but Fincher likes to develop a lot more stuff at once than the average producer/director.
So take the word that he and Charlize Theron are developing Mind Hunter, an HBO series based on the John Douglas and Mark Olshaker book Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit, with a basic ‘wait and see’ attitude. Read More »
