Hello friends. I think we might have jumped the proverbial gun with our initial reaction to the teaser for the latest addition to the X-Men Singerverse, The Gifted, because the full trailer has got some wow factor. OK. More than some. 

Wow, I tell ya. Intrigue, mutant abilities and actual references to both the X-Men and the brotherhood! There's no doubt this is set in the Singerverse and it's not necesraaily a bad thing. I quite like when shows connect to the films and work to build a larger and richer universe. That is unlike some other mutant shows, and you know the one I mean. I'm looking at you, Legion. All in all, I'm definitely going to give The Gifted a watch. How about you?

Action-adventure family drama THE GIFTED, from Marvel, tells the story of a suburban couple whose ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that 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.  Written by Matt Nix (APB, “Burn Notice”), directed by Bryan Singer (the “X-Men” franchise”) and executive-produced by Nix, Singer, Lauren Shuler Donner (“X-Men: Apocalypse,” “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” “The Wolverine”), Simon Kinberg (“X-Men: Apocalypse,” “X-Men: Days of Future Past”), Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Daredevil,” “Marvel’s Jessica Jones”) and Jim Chory (“Marvel’s Daredevil,” “Marvel’s Jessica Jones”), the series stars Stephen Moyer (SHOTS FIRED, “True Blood”) and Amy Acker (“Person of Interest”).
