Abe Sapien and Triton

I have written before about how well realized Abe Sapien was in live action form for the Hellboy movies, and now with the announcement of an Inhumans film, I am looking forward to see Triton on the big screen.  His appearance has varied quite a bit from artist to artist over the years, so there is a lot to choose from when designing his look for film.  Hopefully, the filmmakers will stick closely to the Kirby design, you can't beat the original!

If an Inhumans movie were being made in the 90's, the costume and make-up departments would just be handed whatever story had been most recently in print, regardless of the artist or the character's context in the story. I think that a movie made in this decade would probably invole a consultant who would Google-image up the Neal Adams panels from the Avengers' Kree-Skrull War story in 1971. You get the costume from multiple angles and there are examples of how different emotions should be expressed through scales and eyebrow make-up on the actor. The story's been reprinted in every decade since it was published, so a consultant from any generation would be familiar with it. And Adams didn't deviate from Kirby's costume design, he just made the musculature more realistic.

Just so long as they didn't make him look like the Gill Man from MONSTER SQUAD.

Hell this team up is great. They should have faced off against Darkseid's Deep Six!

Love Triton! First came across him when Marvel was giving him a bit of a push, first in the back pages of Thor and later as a guest-star in the Sub-Mariner. He was always the most inhuman of the Inhumans, the one who was isolated even from his own culture to a great extent.
