Marvel has finally revealed the actors who will star in the upcoming "Inhumans" television series. "Graceland" star Serinda Swan has been tapped to play Medusa.

Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb has already confirmed the news and said that he is excited to have her on board on the project, Entertainment Weekly reported.

"Serinda empowers Medusa's regal glory and still maintains a relatability that synced perfectly with the character. She is nothing short of wonderful," he said.

"Inhumans" showrunner Scott Buck also has some nice words for Swan and expressed his support for the casting choice. He said Swan brings a sense of inner strength and fierce determination to the role and expresses that he could not be any happier to her play the character.

Swan joins "Hells on Wheels" and fellow "Smallville" actor Anson Mount and Iwan Rheon who will play Black bolt and Maximus the Mad respectively. In addition to the already impressive lead cast of actors, it had also been confirmed that Owen Harn and Eliana Jones will join them as Gorgon and Crystal. On the other hand, actor Donnie Yan has expressed interest in joining the cast as Namor, Screen Rant reported.
