We’ve been hearing about Fox creating an X-Men show for some time, but it’s different when you finally get to see it. The first official trailer just dropped for X-Men: The Gifted and it looks decent. The show is giving me “Heroes” vibes. The most interesting part of the trailer was when one of the characters mentioned that they weren’t sure if they X-men existed anymore.
That makes me wonder if this show takes place during the same timeline as the film Logan? I’m also curious to know if the kids from the show will ever become a crime fighting unit? If not I’m afraid people are going to just scream this ripped off Heroes even though Heroes ripped off X-men in the first place. Hell, the top comment on this Hell, the top comment on this video’s Youtube page is “Save the cheerleader save the world” which is a Heroes season 1 reference.
No official release date has been given, but Fox claims they’re aiming for a Fall 2017 slot.
