When Game of Thrones and Misfits actor Iwan Rheon joined the cast of Marvel and ABC’s Inhumans, many had high hopes for the property. Unfortunately, the ABC series ultimately proved to be a disaster, both at the box office and among critics. Despite being a part of the poorly received series, Rheon is ready to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In a new interview with Comicbook, Rheon was asked if he would ever consider returning as Maximus again. The actor seemed more than eager to return as the Inhuman, should the Inhumans formally make their Marvel Cinematic Universe debut, but he also showed interest in tackling any role within the MCU. “I’ll take anything really. I’d love to have another crack at — I’d love to do Maximus again,” the actor said.
Although Inhumans was critically panned, Rheon was often considered one of the highlights of the ill-fated series. He was menacing as Maximus and often commanded the screen during his scenes. As of now, Marvel has not suggested the Inhumans will be making their big-screen debut anytime soon, and it seems highly unlikely the ABC series will be considered canon in the greater MCU. Still, Rheon is interested in continuing Maixmus’ story, or potentially taking on another role, noting that he’s not picky. “I think he’s a really interesting character. And also I feel a bit sorry for him, because he is just stuck on the Moon still, but yeah, I’d love to do any of that stuff. Anything. I’m not fussy, give me anything.”
