This September, the most famous hairdo in the Marvel Universe will make its live-action debut in IMAX theaters.
Serinda Swan plays Medusa, queen of the Inhumans, in the new ABC series. After undergoing Terrigenesis, Medusa emerged with prehensile hair that she could control with her thoughts. That may sound fun, but it can be tricky to film, as Swan explained to ComicBook.com at Comic-Con International: San Diego.
"I have a very beautiful, amazing wig that you see in some of the trailers and then a lot of it is CGI, obviously," she says. "So it's a mixture and its getting use to that and its like another limb, basically. So it's getting used to having that and then dodging the wind and all of that fun stuff It was amazing to kind of learn how to function with four-and a half feet of hair."
That brings a whole new level of potential to the idea of a bad hair day.
In Marvel's Inhumans, after the Royal Family of Inhumans is splintered by a military coup, they barely escape to Hawaii where their surprising interactions with the lush world and humanity around them may prove to not only save them,but Earth itself.
The Inhumans, a race of superhumans with diverse and singularly unique powers, were first introduced in Marvel Comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965.
