Marvel have apparently found their Medusa.
Entertainment Weekly have announced that the female lead of Marvel’s Inhumans is to be played by Canadian actress Serinda Swan (Graceland). It’s fair to say that Marvel are happy with this casting decision, with Jeff Loeb, Marvel’s head of TV, saying:
“Serinda empowers Medusa’s regal glory and still maintains a relatability that synced perfectly with the character. She is nothing short of wonderful.”
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.”
Medusa is the queen of the Inhuman Royal Family, with the ability to telekinetically control her long, incredibly tough red hair. Swan joins actor Anson Mount (Hell on Wheels), who will be playing the character’s husband Black Bolt; and Iwan Theon (Game of Thrones), who will portray Black Bolt’s brother Maximus.
Inhumans will premiere in IMAX cinemas on 4 September 2017.
