The first full trailer for Fox's The Gifted has debuting, revealing more about the connections to the overall 20th Century Fox cinematic X-Men universe - including the fact that both the X-Men and the Brotherhood (of Mutants) are missing. You probably shouldn't get your hopes up of seeing Wolverine slicing and dicing through the crowds.
Reed (Stephen Moyer, Shots Fired, True Blood) and Caitlin (Amy Acker, Person of Interest, Angel) Strucker are typical middle-class parents dealing with the realities of raising a family.
While FOX has found success with DC properties like "Gotham", the network will be diving into the Marvel Television Universe with a new series called "The Gifted".
This first trailer isn't especially promising as, from first appearances alone, this just utilizes Singer's go-to X-Men tropes that he's been pulling from since 2000. Check out the full synopsis below, and let us know what you think about the trailer. Now, from what I'm seeing, this looks to have far more characterization and depth than we're used to seeing from Singer's Hollywood mutants.
The opening seconds of this trailer also introduce Polaris, a.k.a. Lorna Dane (Emma Dumont). She's a powerful mutant who can control magnetism. kind of like Magneto, who has been a staple throughout the X-Men film series. Even saying "X-Men" in passing like this means they are out there. From the X-Men side there are Bryan Singer, Matt Nix, Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg. She has the power of teleportation, and was seen in X-Men: Days of Future Past (being portrayed by Fan Bingbing), and this version of Blink will be a younger Blink.
The Gifted follows the Strucker family as the two kids come to grips with their mutant abilities.
While there is no concrete date set for the premiere of the series, FOX is aiming for a fall release. This forces them on the run from the pesky government, right into the hands of an underground network of mutants. And that may just be the thing to make this show a hit. Singer has also given us the glimpse of sentinels, the classic X-Men villains alongside mutant Polaris in a odd way.
