The upcoming ABC series Marvel’s Inhumans has cast Iwan Rheon to play Maximus Attilan. Rheon is best known for his role as the most hated “bastard” on Game of Thrones, Ramsay Bolton.
Maximus Attilan is as clever as he is charming. He is also fiercely devoted to his family and his brother Black Bolt, the King of Attilan. Despite these honorable qualities he also as an almost uncontrollable desire to take the throne for himself like another well-known brother in the Marvel Universe, Loki.
Marvel Television’s Jeph Loeb praised Iwan’s work on Game of Thrones, “Iwan’s ability to be charming, roguish and still completely unexpectedly dangerous were all the different sides we needed to bring the character to life.” With his impressive run on Game of Thrones, Iwan is without a shadow of a doubt more than able to bring together a complex character like Maximus Attilan to life.”
The first two episodes of “Inhumans” premier this Labor Day in IMAX theaters all over the country. Afterwards, the show will move to its slot on ABC for a limited Fall run.
What do you think? Can you see Iwan as Maximus, or will the shadow of Ramsey Bolton linger?
