Henry Ian Cusick confirmed for ‘Inhumans’ as human Dr Evan Declan

A couple of weeks back, rumors swirled that Henry Ian Cusick (The 100, LOST) has joined the cast of Marvel’s Inhumans. Now Cusick not only confirms the casting, but reveals his role.

During an interview with CinemaBlend, Cusick stated “I play a geneticist and his name is Dr. Evan Declan and he’s human. I think that says quite a lot already, if you know the comics, you know where the Inhumans are coming from, so that’s pretty much my character.”

The original casting was revealed through an IMDB update, but was never made official.

Given the Royal Family of Inhumans, led by Anson Mount’s largely silent leader Black Bolt, came into existence due to genetic experiments performed on humans. In the comics, the genetics work was started by the Kree, but it’s unclear if the TV show will follow in this direction, and it’s plausible that Declan could have something to do with it.

The original teaser photo (below) revealed the look of the cast and their uniforms/costumes: Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Ken Leung as Karnak, Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Serinda Swan as Medusa, Isabelle Cornish as Crystal, and Iwan Rheon as Maximus.

Inhumans will also include Lockjaw, Crystal’s massive teleporting canine companion. Marvel set Iron Fist producer Scott Buck as the Inhumans showrunner, while they additionally enlisted Black Sails helmer Roel Reiné to direct the first two episodes of the eight-episode season.

Buck (who also ran Marvel’s Iron Fist) indicates that this may be a specific creative choice, telling EW about the real look of these strange characters: “…we approach these all as real people who just happen to have these abilities, so they’re all very grounded people. We try to write them as real as possible, and then have fun with the powers when we can. We want their powers to seem like a very natural part of their personality.”

“Basically we’re telling a story about a family at a very critical juncture in their lives. When we meet up with them, we’re going to find that pretty much everything they’ve ever known is at risk.”

Marvel’s Inhumans will make its debut in IMAX on September 1, before premiering on ABC in February.
