      X-Men TV Series The Gifted Canceled by FOX After Season 2

      Since 2000, the X-Men universe has been slowly growing on the big screen—so much so that many of the actors are barely recognizable from their pre-fame days. There’s now the original X-Men movie trilogy, as well as the X-Men: First Class prequel trilogy and the soon-to-be-a trilogy of Wolverine solo movies (with the upcoming Logan rounding the latter out). On top of that, Deadpool premiered early last year to kick off another successful corner of the ever-expanding franchise. 20th Century Fox is also planning a movie focusing on the New Mutants team, proving the studio has no plans of slowing things down when it comes to building their own superhero universe.
      With the premiere of Legion on FX next month, there will soon be mutants in live-action form on the small screen too. Though the mind-bending story of Professor X’s son is unconnected from the X-Men films, it will still allow for a greater exploration of what it means to be a mutant (and with the X-Men universe’s ever-shifting take on continuity, it’s not as if the characters of Legion couldn’t be brought into the film fold at some point). Luckily, the other X-Men series coming to TV is said to exist in the same universe as the films. Though it’s yet to be given a title, we’ve been slowly hear more and more about it in recent weeks. Now, it looks like the show is finally becoming a reality.


      Thanks to The Wrap, we’ve just learned that FOX has ordered TV’s second X-Men show to series. Headed by Matt Nix (Burn Notice), the show is currently only listed as an untitled “Marvel Action-Adventure Series.” Thanks to a previous reports however, we know it will focus on the story of two non-mutant parents who are forced to protect their kids from the government as they start gaining powers. Another recent report has stated the mutant-hunting Sentinels will be making an appearance on the series, as well, further tying the show to the world of the X-Men movies.





      With the information we’ve been given so far, it’s difficult to tell just where in the X-Men continuity the series will sit. Though it will feature Sentinels, producer Laura Schuler Donner has noted that they will appear different from the ones in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Whether this is simply an update they’ve received, or they exist in a completely separate timeline, we’re not yet sure.
      Assuming the show takes place in the modern day, we could be seeing what the new X-Men timeline looks like in our present day. FOX could also simply make it part of yet another side timeline, in an effort to not be forced to address the events of the series in the movies. While Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. exists in the same universe as the Avengers, we’ve yet to see the events or characters of the TV show make a major impact on the films. FOX could run into a similar problem, but at least they have wonky continuities and timelines to use as an excuse. Either way, the news of the show seems to be rolling in quickly, so we’re sure to know more soon.
      We’ll bring you more information on the Untitled X-Men Series as it arrives.

      Sentinels Involved in FOX’s X-Men TV Series


      Click here to view the original image of 786x393px.


      Fox’s X-Men cinematic universe has certainly expanded throughout its decade-plus run, but now the franchise is setting up shop on the small screen. Starting with FX’s upcoming Legion – created by Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley and taking place in its own universe – and possibly continuing on with another untitled X-Men-related show developed by Burn Notice creator Matt Nix. While there hasn’t been an overabundance of information on the untitled show, it’s rumored that it will focus on two parents with no powers protecting their mutant children from the government.
      This story is reminiscent of quite a few different X-Men comics, which regularly focused on the discrimination directed at the mutant community. Some of these story arcs, however, focused on robots called Sentinels hunting down mutants and imprisoning and/or killing them outright. While some fans may have distantly hoped for the robots – which made their live action debut on the highly successful X-Men: Days of Future Past – to appear on the show, there’s new information that suggests such hopes may have merit.


      While talking to IGN (via CBM),producer Lauren Shuler Donner elaborated not only on Nix’s untitled X-Men show taking place in the prime universe (where the main X-Men films take place), but also revealed that the Sentinels would appear on his show, should it indeed be greenlit by FOX. Interestingly, Donner also revealed that the Sentinels would look very different than the ones seen before. For Donner’s full answer on Nix’s show as well as what differentiates it from Legion, read below:
      “Matt’s is much more a part of just the world in terms of there are mutants, mutants are hated and there are Sentinels — though very different from what we’ve seen before. You feel like you’re here in the X-Men world. With Legion, we’re our own universe. It gives Noah the freedom to do what he wants to do. Because we play with so many different timelines, and we rebooted and not really rebooted and all that, we felt like, OK, we’re going to throw it out there and hope the fans accept it.”

      The Sentinels being brought to television in live-action form is certainly a smart move by FOX for the untitled X-Men show, and it could do wonders to really illustrate the dangers the mutants of Nix’s world face. With it being set in the prime universe, it’s hard not to wonder if the show would eventually bring in some form of Nimrod as well. In the comics, Nimrod was something of an ultra-Sentinel, featuring regeneration that made him nearly invulnerable and a host of other devastating abilities as well.
      Naturally, some fans may wonder what Donner means by changing the Sentinels from what’s previously been seen, and if this could possibly point to more advanced robots than the X-Men: Days of Future Past film featured. Of course, it could also mean they’ll be smaller so as to be less stressful on a presumably smaller television show budget. Either way, it’s hard not to be excited at the prospect of bringing some of the more Sentinel-oriented comic stories to a format that encourages long-form storytelling.

      -Men TV Show Casts Its First Lead Character

      The X-Men franchise has had a rocky couple of years in cinemas. After debuting with two strong entries at the beginning of the aughts, the series has had a hard time getting back to its former glory. While certain entries like X-Men: First Class and Deadpool have offered hope, other movies like X-Men: Apocalypse have left many underwhelmed. Logan looks like it may finally turn things around next month, and the recently announced X-Men: Supernova could prove a boon as well. For now, however, it looks like TV is the future of the X-Men franchise.
      Legion debuted on FX yesterday to stellar reviews praising the cast, creators, and the audacious design and direction of the series. By focusing on more personal stakes and more intimate abilities, while also throwing of the shackles of the X-Men themselves, Noah Hawley’s new series looks to be the best thing Marvel has ever put on the small screen. Fans are now hoping FOX can pull off a similar feat when they launch their own mutant-centric series. Given a series order just a few weeks ago, the Untitled X-Men Series will focus on an underground network of mutants hiding from the government and a family attempting to protect their children whose powers have recently manifested.







      Now, thanks to EW, we know who the show’s first cast member will be. Blair Redford will be playing “the strong-headed Native American leader of the underground network.” Listed only as Sam, his name could be a cover for a well-known mutant. Either way, his casting as one of TV’s few Native American characters is a strong choice given that the X-Men series has long served as a commentary on representation and civil rights.

      While the series will supposedly not reference the X-Men movies, showrunner Matt Nix has said some characters from the team may appear on the show. For Nix, the move is a smart one that lets the show operate on its own terms:
      “It’s sort of designed to side-step questions like, ‘Where is Wolverine?’ There is a certain amount of those characters that I can use and I’m using some of those. Other characters I’m inventing but everything is invented with a nod to the existing mythology.”
      Still, it won’t be completely unconnected. We already know that Sentinels will appear. Plus, the series is being exectuive producer by Bryan Singer, who will also direct the pilot. Singer’s involvement means that there will at least be a meta connection to the X-Men films, even if it doesn’t become explicit. The director is already opening up about the show and how different it will be to have the X-Men and mutants on TV.
      Filming for the series is set to start on March 13, so the next few weeks should bring with them a flurry of casting announcements. Hopefully, we’ll learn who some of the comic book characters on the show will be and get a better idea of the plot. Maybe, just maybe, the show will even get a name.
      For now, we’ll bring you all the news there is on the Untitled X-Men Series as it arrives.

      X-Men TV Show Casts Jamie Chung as Blink

      The X-Men movie franchise has been going strong at the box office since director Bryan Singer kicked the series off with his first installment, in 2000. Singer is reportedly done calling the shots on the X-Men’s big screen adventures, but that doesn’t mean the director is through telling stories about mutants just yet. In fact, 20th Century Fox TV and Marvel Television are currently developing a live-action X-Men TV series that has Singer lined up to direct the pilot episode, as well as X-Men movie mainstays Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg onboard as executive producers.
      Matt Nix (creator of Burn Notice and Complications) is writing the pilot episode for the X-Men TV series, with Blair Redford (Switched at Birth) starring as “Sam”: a “strong-headed” mutant who leads an underground network dedicated to protecting other mutants being persecuted by the government. A costar for Redford has now been found too, in the form of Once Upon a Time and Gotham TV show veteran Jamie Chung.
      Marvel is confirming that Chung is going to be playing Blink (aka. Clarice Fong) on Nix’s upcoming X-Men TV series. The show’s version of the Blink character is described by Marvel as being “sarcastic” and “lively,” as well as a bit of a “tomboy.” Here is the simple backstory that said press release offers for the show’s version of the character:



      Clarice’s naturally strong exuberance has taken a hit after a sudden and traumatic upheaval of her life. As she adjusts to the new people and places that are suddenly “home,” she is slowly becoming herself again.






      The Blink character made the jump from the world of X-Men comic books to the big screen in 2014, where she was portrayed by Fan Bingbing (in a supporting role) in the Singer-helmed X-Men: Days of Future Past – some nine years after the character was featured in the video game X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse, voiced by Tara Strong. Blink’s main superpower is the ability to teleport not only herself, but potentially several individuals at a time. One can easily imagine how such a skill would prove handy to Sam, as part of his ongoing efforts to keep mutants-on-the-run secret and safe from being detected by government forces.
      Chung is no stranger to comic book-based fare herself; in addition to her role as Valerie Vale on Gotham season 3, she took over the role of the deadly Miho in the sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, the same year that she voiced the tech genius-turned superhero Go Go in Disney Animation’s Big Hero 6 comic book movie adaptation. The X-Men TV show could make for another nice feather to add to Chung’s cap of geek-favorite roles, should the pilot episode be picked up to series. Filming on the show’s pilot is tentatively set to begin in Texas next month, so fans shouldn’t have to wait too long to find out if Nix’s show joins Noah Hawley’s Legion as the second live-action X-Men TV show currently on the air.

      Fox’s X-Men TV Series Casts Stephen Moyer in Lead Role

      Fox’s X-Men television series has been in development for a few months now with rumors popping up here and there about how far into it the series is. Now that Legion is airing on their subsidiary, FX, attention seems to have returned to the X-Men TV show that will tie more closely into the mythology Marvel Comics fans know.
      The as of yet untitled X-Men show has jumped into the casting process to populate what has been described as an “action-adventure pilot”. Again, the description seeming to be more tonally similar to the Bryan Singer-helmed franchise of feature films.
      Stephen Moyer, who played vampire Bill Compton on HBO’s True Blood for seven seasons, has been cast in Fox’s X-Men TV show according to Deadline. He is tapped to play the lead, meaning that he will once again do the heavy lifting on the series. Moyer will be playing Reed, father and patriarch, who discovers – along with his wife – that their children are mutants. In typical X-Men storytelling style the family goes on the run from a hostile government eventually joining an underground mutant-friendly movement. For his part, Reed is an ambitious lawyer working at the DA’s office when the show begins.







      Moyer previously starred in Shots Fired for 20th Century Fox, this being the next step in their working relationship. He joins previously announced cast members Blair Redford (Satisfaction), who will play the hard-headed mutant leader of the underground movement and Jamie Chung (Gotham), who has been tapped to play Blink – a character who BingBing Fan portrayed in X-Men: Days of Future Past. The pilot episode will be directed by Bryan Singer who previously directed four of Fox’s X-Men movies.
      Moyer is a very safe choice to helm this new X-Men TV show. Where Dan Stevens on Legion was a stretch, having never led an American television show before, Moyer led one of the most successful genre shows of all time in addition to leading a show for Fox previously. He’s tried and true and age appropriate for the part. While it’s a disappointment that he will not be playing one of the characters with powers, his character has the opportunity to bring a lot of humanity to the show.
      On the other hand, very little is known about what this Fox X-Men show is going to be and exactly how Moyer’s Reed will fit into it. He may secretly be the villain of the series who will betray his family in the service of helping them or the greater good. Or, having to go on the run could bring them closer than ever. There are absolutely opportunities in the source material for this to turn into a wonderful role.



      The as-yet untitled X-Men TV series has no release date.

      X-Men TV Series Casts Syfy Star as New Mutant Character

      After nine movies – 10 if you count Deadpool – the X-Men are headed to television with a few different shows, including a not-yet-named series on Fox. The plot of the series is already known – two parents with no mutant abilities learn that their children are mutants. With a government tracking down and discriminating against mutants, the whole family goes on the run. They fall in with a whole group of mutants in hiding. Facing prejudice, both from individuals and from the government is a common theme in the comics, as well as the various films and animated series based on the books. However, Xavier’s School for the Gifted tends to operate in plain sight, whereas this series is about the mutants who try to hide.
      The series does not yet have a name, but a cast is starting to be announced. Stephen Moyer is playing the powerless father trying to protect his children. After seven years of playing Bill Compton on True Blood, Moyer is certainly at home with fantasy, though it will be a stretch for him to play one of the vulnerable characters without powers after so much time playing a vampire living among humans. The leader of the mutant group will be played by Blair Redford (Switched at Birth). And playing Blink, a teleporting mutant who was first introduced to the comics in 1994 is Jamie Chung (The Hangover II and III). Chung already has a bit of history with comic book roles, she was in both Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and Big Hero 6.
      And now another actor has been cast. According to Deadline, Sean Teale has been added in the role of Marcos Diaz/Eclipse. While Chung’s mutant character has history with the comics, Eclipse seems to be an entirely original character, indicating that the new series will be a mix of existing and new material.







      Teale recently starred on the Matt Damon and Ben Affleck produced series Incorporated, which aired for one season on SyFy before being canceled. Previously, he starred in the first two seasons of Reign as Prince Conte and was in the final two seasons of the UK series Skins.
      Teale’s character Marcos Diaz is a bit of a rebel who struggles when it comes to working with others. He’ll have to, under the circumstances, but is more likely to follow his heart than his head in battle. As Eclipse, his powers involve manipulating and even absorbing photons.
      This new series is executive produced by Bryan Singer, Matt Nix, Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg, Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory. Keep reading Screen Rant for all the latest news about the series.

      X-Men TV Series Title & Cast Update; More Photos Revealed



      The cinematic side of 20th Century Fox’s mutant universe first kicked off in 2000 with Bryan Singer’s X-Men, which launched the original trilogy. The X-Men franchise has since taken a number of confusing twists and turns in terms of continuity – not helped by X-Men: Days of Future Past rewriting the timeline and Logan taking place in the future. More recently though, Fox’s X-Men universe is in a state of transition as Ryan Reynold’s Deadpool takes on a bigger role, the prequel series continues, and a number of spinoffs are in the works. Additionally, Fox and Marvel TV teamed for the first time on FX series Legion.
      Now, Fox is developing a second X-Men television series, which has been in the process of casting in preparation of its mid-March filming start date. Most recently, X-Men franchise producer Lauren Shuler Donner tweeted a photo of the show’s full cast and hinted that the title will be Gifted. The image featured The Originals star Joseph Morgan, prompting questions of whether he’d been cast – despite there having been no official reports – and, if so, what that would mean for The CW’s vampire series. Now, a new report clarifies the title of the series and whether Morgan is officially part of the cast.



      EW is reporting that – as we suspected – Gifted is not the final title of Fox’s latest X-Men TV project, but the working title to be used while it’s in production. Additionally according to their sources, Morgan has not been cast in the pilot, but was filling in for the read-through. However, it’s unclear which role he was reading and who that part officially belongs to (his name appears on the card in front of him in the photo, but it’s difficult to discern what the character name below it is).
      In addition to Donner’s read-through image, co-star Natalie Alyn Lind (Gotham) posted photos of herself, fellow cast members, show creator/writer Matt Nix (Burn Notice), and pilot director Singer. Take a look:

      Watch out. X-men are coming for you Dallas. #mutantsquad (missing the our badass muties @jamiejchung & @seanjamesteale )
      A post shared by natalie alyn lind (@natalynlind) on Mar 10, 2017 at 8:48pm PST
      Dallas! We made it! Let's kick ass, mutants! #Xmen pic.twitter.com/0Q04uYFP8j
      — Nat Alyn Lind (@NatalieAlynLind) March 11, 2017
      Of course, not much can be gleaned from these latest photos, though they do offer fans a chance to see the cast altogether – and excited to get started on the X-Men inspired series. Lind stars as Lauren Stewart, the mutant daughter of two human parents – Reed (Stephen Moyer) and Kate (Amy Acker) – who, along with her family, goes into hiding from the government. Blair Redford portrays Thunderbird, the leader of a group of mutants the Stewarts run across in their travels, while the series also features Jamie Chung as Blink, Emma Dumont as Lorna Dane/Polaris, Sean Teale as Marcos Diaz/Eclipse, Coby Bell as Jace Turner, and Percy Hynes White in an unknown role.
      Since all of these members of the cast appeared in the photo posted by Donner, as well as Lind’s images on social media, it remains to be seen which role Morgan filled in for at the script reading – and who has (or will be) cast in the part. Certainly, this report seemingly puts to bed all the speculation circulating about whether The Originals will end since Morgan isn’t involved in the X-Men series – but it should be noted The CW hasn’t made an official annoucement about the show just yet. So, as the X-Men pilot gears up to begin production, more about the latest mutant-based TV project may be revealed in the coming weeks.


      We’ll keep you updated on the X-Men TV series/Gifted as more information becomes available.

      FOX’s X-Men TV Series Starts Production; Set Photo Released


      Fox’s X-Men franchise has been enjoying a fantastic 2017 so far, with the massive success of the final Wolverine movie, Logan, and positive critical response to their first foray into live-action television with the trippy and complicated Legion. Now, the studio is hard at work on a second X-Universe TV series, the upcoming Gifted. The series revolves around a group of young mutants and their parents who are on the run from the government. The series will see multiple mutant powers make an appearance, and it sounds significantly more straightforward than Legion, with only a single reality for viewers to worry about.
      Earlier this month, fans caught a glimpse of the cast together for the first time at a preliminary script reading, and now, executive producer Lauren Shuler Donner has released the first behind-the-scenes image from the upcoming show.
      Donner shared the image on Twitter, along with the caption ‘”The Gifted” night shooting. Bryan Singer directing, Amy Acker acting.’ The photo itself shows Amy Acker in close up, sitting in the front seat of a vehicle, shot from the seat behind her. Donner then re-tweeted the image with the caption “Tha fabulous @AmyAcker,” tagging the actress in this second tweet.

      — Lauren Shuler Donner (@ShuDonner) March 23, 2017
      This is the second time the producer has referred to the show as Gifted, although this tweet suggests that the title of the series is not simply Gifted, but The Gifted —which is a minor change. It was already known that Acker will star in the show, and that she will play the role of Kate Stewart, the wife and mother of the core family whose children have developed mutant powers.
      It’s exciting to see that filming for the series is underway, although there is no info on when the show will hit screens. (Despite IMDB listing it as June 2017, this has not been officially confirmed by the producers.) This behind-the-scenes image doesn’t give anything away; as a parent on the run, it makes sense that she will appear on the road at some point, and this could be anything from an average evening before they have to go on the run, to the moment that the family has to flee their normal lives. Hopefully Donner will post more behind-the-scenes images and updates as the show is filming, as no doubt many will be interested to see how this latest corner of the X-Men universe unfolds.
      Screen Rant will keep you updated on The Gifted as more information becomes available.

      X-Men TV Pilot May Flash Back to WWII







      Not too many details have been revealed about FOX’s new X-Men TV series so far, but it looks like we are about to start learning more, now that the pilot has started filming. The series is titled Gifted, although it’s unclear if that is a working title or not. We do know a few of the show’s stars, that it is connected to the X-Men cinematic universe, and the basic plot. The series centers on a family who are forced to go on the run when their children start displaying mutant powers, with the help of a mutant underground resistance and a few familiar mutants.
      New details are coming through from social media, with franchise producer Lauren Schuler Donner posting photos and updates about the project – though this isn’t the only source we have for Gifted news. Casting calls have also started to appear, teasing some of the background characters that we will see, including one for Sentinel technicians (suggesting that we will see some Sentinel background in the show). Now a new casting sheet has surfaced, teasing a potential flashback or time travel element.



      This latest casting call was posted by Legacy Casting, and picked up by Omega Underground. It is a standard casting call for extras for the series, and confirms that Legacy will be casting all extras for the show with this line, “Legacy Casting is officially casting the extras for the Untitled Fox Marvel Pilot”. There are two opportunities currently listed for the project, “Seedy Types At Bar” (posted last month) and “SS Guards” (posted on the 19th of this month).





      “SS Guards” presumably refers to the Schutzstaffel, the Nazi paramilitary force that was responsible for enforcing Nazi rule and for guarding the prison camps during the second World War. It can be assumed that these extras will therefore be involved in some kind of WWII scene for the show, although it is not clear in what capacity that could be. “Seedy Types At Bar” meanwhile, presumably simply points to a dive bar scene.
      The inclusion of a WWII scene could mean that the series will involve time travel – it’s something that has worked for The Flash, although it’s not quite so obvious a choice for the X-Men universe. There are, however, time-traveling mutants as well as a time-traveling Sentinel, so this is a possibility. A more likely scenario is that the series will involve flashbacks in order to give backstory. Polaris, one of the confirmed mutants appearing on the show, is the daughter of Magneto, who was interred in a concentration camp as a child. We’ve already seen this in the X-Men movies, so it’s likely that this is what the show will be revisiting.
      Of course, this is all speculation at the moment, and nothing is confirmed other than the presence of ‘SS Guards’ in the show. It’s even possible that this does not refer to WWII at all, but that ‘SS’ stands for something else entirely, although that’s doubtful.
