Marvel’s Inhumans has found its leading lady.

Graceland alum Serinda Swan will play Medusa, the Queen of the Inhumans and wife of Black Bolt (Anson Mount), EW has learned exclusively.

Marvel’s Inhumans follows a race of superhumans with diverse and unique powers and explores the never-before-told epic adventure of Black Bolt and the Royal Family.

Medusa is Black Bolt’s most trusted advisor, a fiercely resilient warrior who has the ability to move and control her hair the way most people use their hands and fingers.

“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 says. “She is nothing short of wonderful.”

Adds showrunner Scott Buck: “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.”

Swan is no stranger to the world of superheroes. The actress — whose credits also include Chicago Fire, Breakout Kings, and Supernatural — previously portrayed Zatanna on Smallville.

The casting comes on the heels of Hell on Wheels star Mount getting cast as Black Bolt, while Game of Thrones‘ Iwan Theon will play his brother, Maximus.

Inhumans — which hails from Buck, Loeb, and Jim Chory — will debut its first two episodes exclusively in IMAX theaters for a two-week window in September before its network run.
