‘The Gifted’ Trailer Released, New X-Men Series On FOX
The first full trailer of the new FOX series The Gifted was released on Sunday. The show will follow two siblings as they discover their mutant powers, and the government agency out to stop them. The Gifted will be the second live-action drama series based inside the Marvel’s X-Men universe – FX’s Legion was the first.
The trailer shows siblings Andy and Lauren as they discover their immense telekinetic abilities. Their father works for the government and, according to Lauren, puts mutants in jail for a living. Still, after discovering that his kids have mutant powers, he decides to help them escape from the very government entity he works for. In order to survive, the family seems to be in search of the X-Men or the “brotherhood,” which may not even exist anymore.
While there is no concrete date set for the premiere of the series, FOX is aiming for a fall release.
The Gifted joins a flurry of Marvel TV adaptations before it including Agent’s of S.H.I.E.L.D., Daredevil, and Netflix’s Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. Netflix is also preparing to release two more Marvel series – The Defenders, and The Punisher.
The pilot episode of The Gifted is directed by Bryan Singer, the director of the first two X-Men films, as well as X-Men: Days of Future Past and X-Men: Apocalypse.
The series stars Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker, Emma Dumont, Sean Teale, Jamie Chung, Coby Bell, Blair Redford, Natalie Alyn Lind, and Percy Hynes White.
