When Marvel released the new Inhumans trailer at SDCC, fans finally got to see Medusa’s (Serinda Swan) hair in action for the very first time. Today, ABC has shared a clip that sees Maximus (Iwan Rheon) propositioning his brother’s wife (not cool, bro), but Medusa is having none of it.
So far, I’m really underwhelmed (putting this mildly) by the way Medusa’s prehensile hair looks and moves in live action (though Lockjaw does look great), and this clip hasn't managed to change my mind one bit. Still, they have a few weeks left to work on it, and I really hope the CG will be up to snuff when the first two episodes are released exclusively in IMAX theaters on Sept. 1 for a limited two-week run before its TV premiere on Sept. 29, with exclusive new content.
The now-official Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff stars Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Serinda Swan as Medusa, Isabelle Cornish as Crystal, Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Ken Leung as Karnak, and Iwan Rheon as Maximus. Here's the official synopsis:
Marvel’s Inhumans explores the never-before-told epic adventure of the royal family including Black Bolt, the enigmatic, commanding King of the Inhumans, with a voice so powerful that the slightest whisper can destroy a city. After the Royal Family of Inhumans is splintered by a military coup, they barely escape to Hawaii where they are greeted with surprising interactions with the lush world and humanity around them. Now they must find a way to reunite with each other and return to their home before their way of life is destroyed forever.
