Marvel’s Inhumans‘ newest cast member is Serinda Swan (Ballers) who’s signed up to play Medusa, Queen of Attilan, in the ABC series. Swan joins Hell on Wheels‘ Anson Mount and Game of Thrones‘ Iwan Rheon in the upcoming series based on the Marvel Comics characters created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Scott Buck is the showrunner and will be executive producing along with Head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory (Marvel’s Daredevil).
Medusa is “is the 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.” Anson Mount will play Black Bolt and Iwan Rheon is Maximus, “a clever and charming Inhuman that is fiercely devoted to the people of Attilan, especially his brother, Black Bolt – though he harbors an intense desire to wear the crown himself.”
Season one will consist of eight episodes set to air following the series’ premiere in IMAX theaters in September 2017.
“Serinda empowers Medusa’s regal glory and still maintains a relatability that synced perfectly with the character,” stated Loeb. “She is nothing short of wonderful.”
“Serinda Swan brings a regal elegance, as well as a sense of great inner strength and fierce determination to the role of Medusa,” added Buck. “I couldn’t be happier to have her as our Queen of Attilan.”
In addition to Ballers, Serinda Swan’s credits include Graceland, Chicago Fire, The Tomorrow People, and Breakout Kings.
