It’s hard to tell at this point which medium has more comic book adaptations: film or TV. Either way, we can at least enjoy the fact that the filmmakers are doing a pretty solid job of giving each franchise its own unique flavor, so as not to wear out the genre prematurely. For example, take a look at Marvel shows like Legion and Daredevil. They are two completely different entities with completely different tones, styles, and target audiences. Just as not every single comic book is made to appeal to the same audience as another book, these shows are being carefully catered to their respective audiences.
Yet another series in the long list of shows comes in the form of the Fox series The Gifted. The series is notable for following mutants — you know, in the vein of the X-Men and all that — but it’s also notable for pulling X-Men director Bryan Singer in to helm the pilot. While the show has always felt pretty far away, it’s actually set to hit Fox this fall, and as such, we were due for a teaser of sorts.
The teaser itself was only 22 seconds in length, and because of the short length, it was little more than a quick sizzle reel. Given the short amount of time, it’s hard to tell just how the show will turn out. Given the talent behind it, however, I’m more than willing to give it its fair shake.
The full trailer for The Gifted hits on May 15, 2017.
The official synopsis for Marvel’s The Gifted is below:
