Bryan Singer's X-Men TV series releases a teaser and reveals its title

05.09.2017

After being suitably intrigued by the promo's for Legion, I had meant to check out the FX series upon its debut this February, but for whatever reason, I didn't get around to it. After some prompting by our own Steve Seigh, I finally dived into the series last month and was relived to find that it is indeed possible to produce a kick-ass TV series set in the X-MEN universe. This also places the bar for any subsequent X-MEN series awfully high, which could be bad news for The Gifted, Fox's upcoming X-MEN TV series. Starring Stephen Moyer (True Blood) and Amy Acker (Person of Interest), The Gifted follows "two ordinary parents who discover that their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive." A short teaser trailer for the series has just been released, check it out!

A little too early to pass judgement, but after Legion, I'm willing to give it a chance. The Gifted was created by Burn Notice's Matt Nix and the pilot episode was directed by none other than Bryan Singer (X-MEN: APOCALYPSE) himself. The series also stars Jamie Chung, Sean Teale, Coby Bell, Emma Dumont, Blair Redford, Natalie Alyn Lind, John Proudstar and Percy Hynes White. The full trailer will arrive on May 15th, so I'd imagine that we'll get a much better look at what The Gifted is all about.

What are your thoughts on this short glimpse into The Gifted?

Sorry...

I just can't support anything "X" from Singer any longer. I've not been happy with any of his "X-Men" related movies.

Sorry. I'll wait for them to figure out that the Marvel Universe needs to be united under one banner.

Pass

Sounds like a stupid premise. Legion was good but it was only watchable because it was different. This just sounds like every other drama on fox.

Hopefully it's a nice counter to FX's Legion, but I have a feeling this might be reminiscent of Heroes; which wouldn't be a bad thing considering the first season was excellent.
