Marvel have announced that Graceland star Serinda Swan is the latest name to join the cast of ABC’s Marvel’s Inhumans television series.
Marvel’s Inhumans will explore the never-before-told epic adventure of Black Bolt and the royal family, along with a race of superhumans with diverse and singularly unique powers. Serinda Swan (whose other credits include Breakout Kings and Chicago Fire) will be playing the role of Medusa, Queen of the Inhumans and wife of Black Bolt — his most trusted advisor, a fiercely resilient warrior who has the ability to move and control her hair the way most people use their hands and fingers.
Head of Marvel Television and Executive Producer, Jeph Loeb said:
Serinda empowers Medusa’s regal glory and still maintains a relatability that synced perfectly with the character. She is nothing short of wonderful.
Executive producer and showrunner, Scott Buck added:
Serinda Swan brings a regal elegance, as well as a sense of great inner strength and fierce determination to the role of Medusa. I couldn’t be happier to have her as our Queen of Attilan.
Serinda Swan will be joining recently cast Iwan Rheon (Maximus) and Anson Mount (Black Bolt) . The straight-to-series show will have its first two episodes premiere exclusively in IMAX theatres for two weeks in September 2017, prior to the show starts on the network. Roel Reine will direct the first two episodes, while Scott Buck and Jeph Loeb will serve as executive producers alongside Jim Chory.
