Are the bad hair days in the past for “Marvel’s Inhumans”?
ABC’s freshman drama series, premiering Sept. 29 on the network following a two-week IMAX launch, released a new set of posters on Monday offering updated looks at the central characters.
This includes Medusa (Serinda Swan), whose hair has been the source of great debate among fans. After the show’s trailers were released this summer, viewers took to Twitter to grouse that the wig looked fake.
Swan defended the much-derided tresses during a Television Critics Association presentation earlier this month, explaining that the character’s hair required new developments in software and CGI.
“There’s going to be issues, and there’s going to be trials and tribulations,” the actress said. “If we only did things that were perfect, we would never start. And so it’s a really phenomenal start.”
Channing Dungey, entertainment president for the network, acknowledged at TCA that the show initially received negative fan reaction to the wig.
“This is still a work in progress,” Dungey said about the show. “We’re coming down to the wire on some of the special effects.”
