Marvel’s highly anticipated ABC Drama, Inhumans has announced a new casting on February 21st. Game of Thrones star Iwan Rheon will be taking on the role of Maximus, the brother of Inhuman King, Black Bolt. Many know of Iwan Rheon as the most hated GOT character yet, Ramsey Bolton. Rheon was able to make his character so disliked that fans started to want Joffery back. His success as a villain previously makes him a wise choice for Maximus. Though Maximus fights on the side of the Inhumans, his intentions are not always noble as he desires power and the crown more than honor. Like Ramsey, Maximus can be a bit unhinged, in fact his nickname is Maximus the Mad.
The Inhumans were created by the greats, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965. They are an alien race that live among humans and mutants on Earth but posses individual powers that differ from character to character. Maximus’ powers consist of advanced intelligence, mental powers and gifted inventing abilities. Inhumans is set to air on ABC on September 1st, 2017. Rheon is the first official cast thus far.
