New Set Photos From 'The Inhumans' Give Us Our First Look at Medusa
As you probably know, Marvel is hard at work bringing The Inhumans to both the big and small screen simultaneously with their IMAX-ready show. Not much is known yet about the show, except that it'll star, among others characters, a giant teleporting dog and a guy whose super power means he can't talk.
Set photos provided by the ever-intrepid Reel New Hawaii have been bringing us our first look at the characters so far. Thanks to some new pictures, we've gotten a glimpse of Serinda Swan as Medusa, queen of the Inhumans, who has magic hair powers.

This isn't the best look at Medusa's costume, but the character's giant red hair can be spotted in the top right photo, in the center of two rows of Inhumans. She's notable for her long purple dress and what is probably the most uncomfortable red wig of all time.
With King Black Bolt (generally) unable to speak for fear of causing earthquakes with his voice, Medusa is probably the most important character in the Inhuman royal family—she's the mouthpiece for her husband, and actually does most of the ruling herself in the comics. It'll be interesting to see how the show approaches Medusa and how much we'll actually see her powers in action, considering that believable CGI hair isn't cheap.
Then again, if Marvel's making this for IMAX, they're going to need to commit the budget to make things look like a mini movie. With that in mind, this could end up being the most visually impressive superhero TV show we've seen so far.
