Subscribe to KISS FM on

No more teleporting around an official name; Marvel’s FOX mutant drama is here, and ordered to series. Meet The Gifted, as Bryan Singer’s X-Men TV series gets an official series order, and its very first teaser.

FOX confirmed that the new mutant drama has been ordered to series, releasing its first footage with the promise of a full trailer on May 15. At the very least, we get our first looks at a new Polaris, some of Blink’s powers, and hints at more Marvel favorites.

In addition to True Blood alum Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker and Gotham alum Natalie Alyn Lind, also cast in the new series is Bunheads alum Emma Dumont as Lorna Dane/Polaris, a metal-manipulating mutant typically portrayed as one of Magneto’s lesser-known children. Other recent additions include Coby Bell, Sean Teale as Eclipse, Jamie Chung as Marvel mutant Blink (who Singer had previously showcased in Days of Future Past) and Switched at Birth star Blair Redford as a Native American mutant leader.

FOX had previously set franchise helmer Singer to direct a pilot for the new drama from Burn Notice creator Matt Nix, said to follow “two human parents who discover their children as mutants, forcing them to run from a hostile government, and join with an underground network of mutants to survive.” The series was also said to take place in the universe of the films, potentially including Sentinels as well.

Stay tuned for details of FOX’s X-Men TV series The Gifted in the meantime.
