Social media can be a powerful asset when it comes to predicting who may or may not be hired to star or direct in an upcoming movie or tv show. Sometimes it’s right but other times it can be wrong. Never-the-less Marvel is ramping up production on three upcoming TV shows including The Runaways, Cloak & Dagger and The Inhumans.
Casting on both Cloak & Dagger was announced yesterday by Marvel on their official website. Now we are waiting to find out which group of actors have been cast in both the teen show The Runaways as well as the royal family of The Inhumans. Actors Elysia Rotaru (Arrow) and Owen Harn (The Walking Dead) have taken to their Twitter to reveal in vague detail that they may have been cast. And by the looks of them; it could be for the roles of Gorgon and Medusa. Unfortunately, this also means the chances of Vin Diesel signing on to play Black Bolt with TV actors went from slim to literally impossible:

UPDATE: Hemlock Grove actress Eliana Jones just started following The Inhumans and Marvel twitter pages. She would fit the role of Crystal very well.
The downside to these premature tweets is if these actors haven’t been cast just yet by Marvel. This could seriously hurt their chances. However, with filming beginning in March expect the royal family to be announced in full very soon.
Marvel’s Inhumans will debut this Fall exclusively on IMAX screens and then ABC
