The official teaser trailer for Marvel series The Gifted، which focusses on a group of mutants، has dropped، entertainment IE reported.
The Gifted is about "two ordinary parents who discover their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government، the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive."
It comes from Burn Notice creator Matt Nix (who wrote and executive produced the series) and regular X-Men director Bryan Singer (who executive produced and directed the pilot).
The announcement comes on the heels of the success of Legion، the X-Men series that earned heaps of critical acclaim for FOX’s sister network FX earlier this year. However، while Legion was intentionally designed to stand apart from the cinematic X-Men universe، Nix and Singer have envisioned The Gifted as a companion series to the films that will allow for character crossover.
The show stars Stephen Moyer (True Blood) and Amy Acker (Person of Interest) as well as Sean Teale، Jamie Chung، Coby Bell، Emma Dumont، Blair Redford، John Proudstar، Natalie Alyn Lind and Percy Hynes White.
