The Inhumans have found their King and Queen
Marvel’s The Inhumans has recently cast their royal family. Hell On Wheels star Anson Mount as Black Bolt, King of the Inhumans.
Kown as a genetic anomaly among both humans and Inhumans. Black Bolt (Blackagar Boltagon) is also known for his semi-telepathic bond with those of his blood but he is most commonly noted as using his ability to communicate his wishes to his wife, Medusa the Queen, who then acts as his mouthpiece to the rest of his subjects.
“Anson loves the challenge of playing a character who will only communicate silently,” said Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel Television and executive producer on Marvel’s The Inhumans. “His enthusiasm mixed with his imposing almost regal persona made it easy to see why he is our Black Bolt.”
“Black Bolt is a character whose deep complexity must be conveyed without uttering a single word, and I’m very excited to have Anson on board to bring him to life,” added showrunner and executive producer, Scott Buck.
Shortly a day after Anson was declared king on the Inhumans, the question of who would play his voice and queen was answered.
Regular on Graceland, Breakout Kings and even playing Zatana on a few episodes of Smallville, Serinda Swan has been cast as Medusa, Queen of the ancient superpowered race.
Known for her red hair, which often seems to have a mind of its own, as she can control every strand, using it as a superpowered whip, another limb, and an enveloping weapon.
“Serinda empowers Medusa’s regal glory and still maintains a relatability that synced perfectly with the character,” Marvel TV head and executive producer Jeph Loeb said in a statement. “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.”
Mount and Swan are only two of the three cast for the new ABC series. The other is Game of Thrones alum Iwan Rheon as Maximus the Mad, Black Bolt’s brother.
Marvel Television and ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD has been dealing with Inhumans through most of its four seasons, but Marvel’s The Inhumans will focus on Marvel’s most popular Inhuman characters, the Inhuman Royal Family. The Royal Family of the Inhumans, the stars of this series, also includes Medusa’s sister Crystal, the tactician Karnak, the man-fish Triton, and the oversized teleporting dog named Lockjaw, all yet to be cast.
