“This is a burden. It is also a gift.”
Fox has released the teaser for X-Men spin-off series The Gifted, which introduces us to some fresh-faced young mutants as they learn to use their powers and show off their skills scoring free vending machine popcorn.
Directed by X-Men filmmaker Bryan Singer from a screenplay by Matt Nix (Burn Notice), the spin-off stars Stephen Moyer (Shots Fired, True Blood), and Amy Acker (Person of Interest) as Reed and Caitlin Strucker, a suburban couple whose lives are turned upside down by the sudden discovery that their children, Lauren (Natalie Alyn Lind) and Andy (Percy Hynes White) have mutant powers. The family are forced on the run from a hostile government, and join up with a network of underground mutants who must fight to survive.
The show is executive produced by Nix, Singer, Lauren Shuler Donner (X-Men: Apocalypse,” “X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Wolverine), Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Apocalypse, X-Men: Days of Future Past), Jeph Loeb (Marvel’s Daredevil, Marvel’s Jessica Jones) and Jim Chory (Marvel’s Daredevil, Marvel’s Jessica Jones).
Keep an eye out for the official The Gifted trailer which will be released MAY 15.
