Marvel’s history on network television has been spotty at best. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been the target of harsh criticism since it debuted on ABC back in 2013. Agent Carter raised the game for a season, but ultimately lost its luster and was canceled after a second outing. And so fans have been following the development of ABC’s newest Marvel show, Inhumans, with great interest.

With production on the show now underway, fans have been getting hyped for a first look at the upcoming series. But be careful what you wish for. The first official promo shot of the Inhumans cast is here. Unfortunately, it’s not awesome and the fan reaction is savage af.

And let’s be real, these types of posed promotional photos rarely do justice to the final product.
