Fans were not happy with the first trailer for the upcoming Inhumans series when it dropped a few weeks ago. From its muted scope, to the poorly executed CGI, the trailer did little to impress. However, Marvelites weren't the only ones who felt down by what they saw.
Speaking with Metro, director Roel Reine shared his opinion of the trailer, and revealed that he also had mixed feelings by what he saw.
"I was mixed about the first trailer as well. I felt like it didn’t give you the scope, it didn’t give you a lot of secrets or visual effects. I felt it was a little bit too early because the visual effects were not ready – Medusa’s hair was not ready. So I was really nervous about it and would think the fans would not really like it. The trailer was made by other people, so I was really nervous about it when I saw it. So I was like, ‘oh guys maybe we should hold off’, but it was too late because it was already in the open."
However, Reine admits he was much more impressed with the second trailer.
"I’m very happy we kind of changed it around. The second trailer really got all the fans back on track and they really like it now and they really want to see it. I was really happy with that second trailer."
We must admit, we feel the same way as there's no denying that the second trailer was a vast improvement over what we saw back in June. It wasn't perfect, but it proved that the show had some potential - at least in the visuals department.
