Ken Leung has been cast in ‘Inhumans’, and the ‘Lost’ alum will play Karnak, based on the character from the comics. His character is Black Bolt’s cousin and closest advisor. His gift is an ability to see the fault in all things — people, plans, structures, everything. He’s also the king’s most ardent supporter and strategist, often seen as the royal family’s planner and philosopher.

“Ken brings both a wisdom and a power to the role that no one else could match. His Karnak will be awesome,” said Marvel head of television and executive producer, Jeph Loeb.

The TV series will explore the never-before-told epic adventure of the royal family including Black Bolt, the enigmatic, commanding king of the Inhumans, with a voice so powerful that the slightest whisper can destroy a city.

First announced was Maximus the Mad (Iwan Rheon), then Black Bolt (Anson Mount), followed by Medusa (Serinda Swan). The main royal family members left to be cast now are Medusa’s elements-controlling sister Crystal, and Triton, the fish-like member of the royal family. It’s also left to be seen if Lockjaw will be announced as part of the series.
