Ken Leung (“Night Shift,” “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Lost”) has landed the key role of Karnak in the Marvel’s Inhumans television series for ABC. Karnak is Black Bolt’s cousin and closest advisor. His gift is an ability to see the fault in all things – people, plans, structures, everything.
“Ken brings both a wisdom and a power to the role that no one else could match. His Karnak will be awesome,” said Executive Producer, Jeph Loeb.
Inhumans explores the never-before-told epic adventure of the royal family including Black Bolt, the enigmatic, commanding King of the Inhumans, with a voice so powerful that the slightest whisper can destroy a city.
Anson Mount (Hell on Wheels) will play Black Bolt, the King of Attilan and all Inhumans, with the ability to unleash great destructive power through the use of his voice.
Inhumans also includes Serinda Swan (“Ballers,” “Graceland”) as Medusa, Iwan Rheon (Game of Thrones) as Maximus, Black Bolt’s brother — a clever and charming Inhuman who harbors an intense desire to wear the crown himself.
Marvel’s Inhumans will premiere its first two episodes in IMAX theaters for two weeks in September, then it will continue on ABC for its full eight-episode run.
