Marvel's Xmen: The Gifted - TV Show

Looks like there will be an Xmen TV show .... with Bryan Singer at the helm.

Bryan Singer, the writer-director-producer behind many of the X-Men films, is bringing more mutants to television. His new Fox series, The Gifted, will follow a family that goes on the run when two human parents figure out that their children are mutants. The first teaser for the show dropped Wednesday, and episodes will air in the fall.

Teenage angst is a drawback for me. For some odd reason, this makes me think of "Witch Mountain" in a funny way.  :)

Witch Mountain lol... It looks good so far. I hope they push the envelope and just go all in on the lore. Don't be afraid to confuse people.

Not excited really.

It will be like TMNT where turtles are support characters. Or like Transformers

Just make me X-Factor with Madrox

While the show is about a family with human parents... their kids are mutants. AND there's no X-Men in the title. It just takes place in their universe. I fully expect Polaris, Blink, Proudstar, etc.. to be stars of the show. I'm excited. Much more so than I was for stupid SHIELD.

I don't know... the parents are the 'biggest names', actor wise. I'd expect them to get a lot of focus. Also wondering how the 'Strucker' thing is going to work (the family are the Struckers, who are usually bad guys...)

I have no interest in this show.  Of all the stuff under the X-Men umbrella and they are going with this.  Just seems kind of lame to me when I think what comes to mind when I hear about an "X-Men TV series".  And I really believe Bryan Singer needs to GO AWAY!

@cc008 regarding SHIELD .... I can't believe that show is still on. I lost interest so quickly with it. I have no idea whats going on and I don't even want to find out.

As for this new show .... I didn't know the family was named the Struckers ... oof ... poor choice perhaps or no clue about the comics. Either way .... unless I see something compelling in promo/teasers/trailers ... I'm not gonna spend time with it.

On the other hand, if it does well ... that may green light other Marvel projects.

The only reason I watched SHIELD originally was because of Coulson. I really liked him in the movies. All of the other characters in that show were so corny and boring and just blah. I really hope this is better, because I'm really excited for it. Funny that it bumped Gotham from its Monday spot.

Just saw the trailer and, with Blink and Polaris being characters, I am suddenly very interested in this show. It seems like the execution of the show will be fairly good also

So I watched the show.. made some hot takes while watching...



How did they know she was in the building?
Who the hell is Marcos?
Why are the cops shooting at the building blindly?
Bellview? Like the sanitarium?
Strucker, as in Baron Von Strucker?
Joe Queasada is exec producing? Complex over?
Why would they call the gene, an X-Gene?
Can sense bolts in a knee but nowhere else? So there no metal pipping under the cell? Around it?
Why not just keep Lorna sedated?
Sister has that Claire Temple cheerleader vibe. Feeling guilty.
People don't dance no more, all they do is this.
Those guys are way too interested in that kid
Neo Nazi haircut?
Why is she just standing there?
So how long until Marvel writes these kids into the books.
Digging the show so far.
Well it's your fault dad. Men pass on the gene... Right, X2?
Coming from church? Great blame it on the Lord.
I think Mom is in denial.
That's a dope kitchen.
Hey, the guy from Burn Notice.
Sentinels, huh?
Pushing into a house... Great way to not escalate a situation.
Slowest... Garage door... Ever
Thor Ragnarok looks good. Why did my phone predict "Ragnarok"?
I think Dad is in denial.
Amy Acker as a blonde... Dig it. Damn she can act. That single tear.
Dad seems pretty sincere. Telling me they didn't trust him? They live with the guy!
Don't trust Carla.
Stepping out a seedy motel in daylight. Big hoop earrings... At least two pair.
She's just throwing bubble wrap.
Yep, he pushed everything away but her...
Focus on how he felt? Takes it to a dark place, she does. Yeah, don't forget the Reece's Pieces!
If you know about the X-Men, those weren't the X-Men.
Teleporters 101, can't go where they haven't been!
Who heard that TAS ringtone!? Sounded sooo Nokia brick phone.
He knocked up Magneto's daughter?!
LoL you kept your license plate?!
Stan the Man...
No one else saw that palm trick? I mean if he's not trying to hide, what's the point in all the cloak and dagger?
Blackmail isn't a great place to start a relationship fellas.
Duct tape would not make that toy work again..
I'm guessing this tracking, super strong mutant is Thunderbird?
Seriously, no one likes sitting in the sticky spot.
Mom's trippin.
They are stopping really far away. Facest America.
These cops are idiots. Did no one think they could just run through one of those many unguarded doors?
Robot spiders... Ok that's pretty terrifying
I don't get... Why can't she make a portal?
Ok... I'll stick around for this. Enjoyed this way more than Inhumans.

I thought this was great. Glad it was an hour long because I wasn't ready for it to end at 9:30 lol. Eclipse's TAS ringtone was great. Love the characters, loved the action. Can't wait for next Monday.

I just don't understand why they felt it necessary to create Eclipse.
