Maximus (Iwan Rheon) is a man with a plan. He wants to take the throne from Black Bolt (Anson Mount) and the hand of Medusa (Serinda Swan). Medusa and her hair may have other ideas in this clip from ABC’s Inhumans.
The clip also highlights how Medusa’s super-powered hair will be realized. It’s very … animated. And judging by the YouTube comments, it’s dividing the potential fans of the series. I think it looks a little rough, but life-like hair is tough to animate even when it isn’t supposed to be super strong and controllable. Maintaining the idea that it is more alive than regular hair could easily break the budget. Here, it’s clear that a few compromises were made to keep Medusa’s abilities around. Meanwhile, Maximus is more than a little bit Ramsay Bolton in the scene; which is okay since Rheon is so good at that part.
Inhumans arrives in IMAX theaters on September 1st and debuts September 29th on ABC.
