Today, Marvel announced that Hell on Wheels alum Anson Mount has landed the coveted role of Black Bolt; King of the Inhumans on Marvel’s and IMAX’s upcoming series The Inhumans. This comes off last week’s announcement that Iwan Rheon was cast as his brother Maximus.
Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb adds:
“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.”
Black Bolt is a character that never speaks because if he does; he could destroy an entire city with his voice. This is a role Vin Diesel (Fast & Furious) sought after for years when Marvel was going to make the Inhumans into a feature film.
With filming beginning next week expect the rest of the casting to be announced very soon…
Marvel’s Inhumans will debut in IMAX theaters before heading to ABC
