FOX has a super-powered new show for the new season. Deadline reports the network has given a series order to Marvel’s The Gifted.
From Bryan Singer and Matt Nix, the drama “focuses on a suburban couple (Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker) whose ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that their children possess mutant powers.” The cast also includes Sean Teale, Jamie Chung, Coby Bell, Emma Dumont, Blair Redford, John Proudstar, Natalie Alyn Lind, and Percy Hynes White.
Watch a preview of The Gifted below:
What do you think? Are you a Marvel fan? Will you watch The Gifted?
So, just watched the first four episodes and sadly, the show sucks! I have been a life long Marvel fan since the mid seventies, especially huge fan of John Byrnes Run on X-Men. Do these writers even read the source material? And do not get me started on the Inhumans over on ABC. God awful.
We want THIN ICE and BEHIND ENEMY LINES Fox pilots to be ordered to series. I am a Marvel fan, but not a fan of a show focused on children.
You know, enough with the Marvel stuff on TV anymore. If FOX was smart which the aren’t they would pick up Sun Records from CMT and run with that great show. Unfortunately all the millennial programmers think about is teeny boppers. To coin a phrase. So Sad!!!
As much as I like “some Marvel aka old school Marvel” I too would rather see something else. Last year Fox had a show Houdini & Doyle, which I liked. Also I’d like to see them pick up Tyrant, which FX canceled, or CW’s Frequency. Maybe they’re envious of CW’s superhero shows??
Just looked at Sun Records and I have to say I’d watch it. I didn’t even know they had a show like this. I’ll have to check on demand and see if I can watch the 1st season or maybe not, I’d probably get hooked.
Well, I watched all 8 episodes of Sun Records and I have to say, it sucks they canceled the series. I never heard of the show, which shows they did next to zero advertising, which in turn leads to poor ratings. I hope someone picks the series up.
