Fox is evidently going forward with their plan to squeeze as much franchise potential as they can from the X-Men intellectual property, turning their sights to both the big screen and the small. First it was Legion, and now The Gifted, a new mutant drama from Bryan Singer, architect of the original X-Men movies, and which now has a teaser online.
The Gifted is about a suburban family who discover that the children are, uh, gifted, and not the kind of gifted that means you’re reading above your grade level. Due to anti-mutant discrimination they have to go underground and join a mutant resistance movement – but none of that is in the teaser, which is more focused on superpowers than plot over the course of its slim 20 seconds:
The Gifted will have an official full-length trailer up on May 15h, so stay tuned to the Fox YouTube channel here for that. And the show itself comes to Fox sometime this fall.
