‘The Gifted’ Trailer: The Mutant Species Spreads (To TV)

Hey, it’s a trailer for The Gifted. Fox’s X-Men TV drama.

The Verge:

Fox has released the first full-length trailer for The Gifted, its upcoming TV show set in the X-Men universe. The show follows the Strucker family, as daughter Lauren and son Andy explore their new mutant powers, run from sinister government agents (and baby Sentinel spiders?), and yell their way through some family conflict. (The trailer shows, Dad, aka Reed Strucker, hanging around humans trapped in human-sized Juicero bags, which maybe suggests he’s not one of the good guys.) There are also some established Marvel characters poking around, including Blink and Polaris.

Here’s the official blurb: “Family adventure series THE GIFTED, from 20th Century Fox Television in association with Marvel Television, tells the story of a suburban couple whose ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that 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.” The show is written by Matt Nix of Burn Notice, and X-Men’s own Bryan Singer is directing.
