Marvel's The Gifted

FOX has picked up The Gifted for a full season. The series revolves around 2 siblings who gain powers (the girl is a telekenetic) and their parents (Amy Acker and Stephen Moyer) on the run. Some minor (and possibly familiar) X-Men characters will be appearing in the series.

Neat tho that Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin are married and now both are part of the X-Men universe. With Anna as Rogue and Moyer as the father of the main mutant kids in The Gifted.

Here's the teaser for The Gifted (full trailer and scene will appear next week during the fall upfronts):

Scanning Raph's Girl original post made me think that. Her clarification and rereading makes more sense.

What were your thoughts on Legion? Excepting some WTF-ery, I've heard mostly good things about it.

I read that Sentinels were going to be in this series. Please tell me those little mini robots aren't what they were talking about.

The group that's hunting down the mutants is called The Sentinal Services. Those little robots are just some of the weapons they use.

We're never, ever going to get proper Sentinels in any iteration, are we?

Nope, not as long as Fox still has the rights.

That's the thing tho. This series will be airing on FOX so we can easily get proper Sentinals...but it looks like we're just getting a normal human group CALLED Sentinals.

And just like that I've lost all prior interest regarding this show.

Stephen Moyer doesn't know if Anna Paquin will be making a cameo as Rogue in the series.

Quote:
“Well, obviously she is in the X-Men universe,” Moyer tells Entertainment Tonight, “Here character, obviously, could possibly...I don’t know, I don’t quite understand the timeline because obviously, the X-Men timeline is very, very specific, so never say never, but I don’t know. I don’t want to say anything that gets me into trouble.”

I watched the premiere last night and I thought it was a solid start for the series. I definitely felt for Andy. When I was in elementary and high-school, some kids were flat out rude to me. They didn't go as far as those bullies did, but it was still tough being picked on by others.

Watched it ladt night and rather enjoyed it. So far we have Thunderbird, Blink, Polaris, Sage and Sunspot as major characters. This is an alternate timeline(AGAIN) so there's why we don't have Sentinels- the government started a program to "integrate" mutants(it's BS- they treat mutans whose powers cause accidental damage or injury as criminals and cart them off) and this MIB sort of group is the result.

Anna Paquin doesn't want to appear as Rogue or a different character in the series right now.

I feel like that would be distracting, honestly. I mean, look, who knows? But I feel like that's one of those things that probably takes people out of the story in a weird way. If I was the creative force behind it, I'm not sure I would want to splice True Blood married people with different X-Men families. I feel like that might be a little schticky.
