    Default X-Men's The Gifted (2017 TBD)

    The Gifted is a new X-Men based television show by Matt Nix and Bryan Singer. Unlike Legion, this will have much stronger ties to the XCU world. The story will focus on two ordinary parents who discover 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. If done correctly, this could end being great. The concept is the epitome of X-Men and fits perfectly for 2017. Supposedly this is supposed to come out around the time as Inhumans, so I'm expecting a Fall release.

    The confirmed X-Men are Thunderbird, Polaris, Blink, and original character Eclipse. As for the time frame, most are speculating it's in the time period of Logan. It seems like Fox is trying to invest the future of X-Men in television series. I think that's a better route to introduce other mutants besides the commonly known ones.

    I lowkey have a new crush now. The picture is from the filming so far.

    Polaris is gonna be in this? Nice.

    I knew both Blink (Jamie Chung), and Thunderbird (Blair Redford) were characters that were going to be used in this series but had no idea that Polaris was going to be in it as well. Anyways, I'll add this to the movie & TV directory thread, I started a while ago, as it makes finding threads at a later date easier.

    This sounds good. Just please tell me its not going to be on ABC, FOX, CBS, or even worse the CW. The shows on these networks are cheesy and so dumbed down for the masses there unwatchable.

    Looks surprisingly not shit. Love FOX playing both sides with this and Gotham.

    Thunderbird is an odd choice considering he was a red shirt in the comics and has been dead well over 3 decades now..

    Seems rather generic. Plus none of the characters have me really interested. I don't know if I'll be watching this or not.

    Wrong Thunderbird I'm guessing. Isn't the one that was a New Mutant and a member of X-Force alive and well?

    I think you are talking about Warpath, Thunderbird's brother. The other guy to use the Thunderbird name was Neal who was from India and not related to the proudstar family in any way.

    I thought that as well at first, with James Proudstar (Warpath) using the Thunderbird name, but according to the wiki page for the series, it'll be John Proudstar that'll be used for the show.

    Oh I wasn't aware. Why did he switch to Warpath? Never really understood the logic behind naming Neal thunderbird either, should have just used new name.
