Anson Mount To Play Black Bolt

Two more leads have been cast for Marvel’s Inhumans, the upcoming live-action TV series.

Hell on Wheels star Anson Mount has been cast in the role of Black Bolt, the king of the Inhumans, while Graceland star Serinda Swan has been cast in the role of the Queen of the Inhumans, Medusa. The pair join Game of Thrones star Iwan Rheon, who was announced for the role of Black Bolt’s brother, Maximus, last week.

Black Bolt is a character described by Marvel as the “enigmatic, commanding King of the Inhumans, with a voice so powerful that the slightest whisper can destroy a city.” His wife Medusa is described also by Marvel as his “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.”

Of the Black Bolt casting, Inhumans executive producer and Marvel head of television Jeph Loeb said:

“Anson loves the challenge of playing a character who will only communicate silently. His enthusiasm mixed with his imposing almost regal persona made it easy to see why he is our Black Bolt.”

Fellow executive producer and showrunner Scott Buck added:

“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.”

Of Swan’s casting as Medusa, Loeb said:

“Serinda empowers Medusa’s regal glory and still maintains a relatability that synced perfectly with the character. She is nothing short of wonderful.”

With Buck adding:

“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.”

Versions of the first two episodes of Marvel’s Inhumans will be getting a two-week run in IMAX theaters this upcoming September before the show begins its eight-episode first season on ABC.
