This came out yesterday, but I’m writing about it today because… well, because I just forgot about doing it yesterday. So here we go!
We have finally gotten a look at “The Gifted” an upcoming TV show set in the “X-Men” universe, kind of like “Legion” only less mindfuck-y… I think. Anyway, so what’s this about? Well, it’s about a couple of young mutants who are going on the run because there are assholes who don’t like mutants. Among these young people we find Blink (Jamie Chung), who we last saw in “X-Men: Days of Future Past” portaling about, trying not to get killed by sentinels. The focus doesn’t seem to be on her, but she’s definitely part of it all. So what do I think about this? Yeah, it looks fine. It’s like a teen drama mixed with some Marvel mutant stuff and that could go either way in terms of quality. This was co-created by Bryan Singer who I thought was done with the “X-Men” franchise after “Apocalypse”, but clearly not. So am I excited? Not really. I’ll say that I’m somewhat interested to see another show set in the “X-Men” universe. “The Gifted” is set to come out in fall/autumn of this year on FOX.
What are your thoughts on this? Are you excited for “The Gifted”? And what did you think about the last “X-Men” show, “Legion”? Leave any and all thoughts in the comments.
Have a good one and enjoy the trailer!
