The exact title of FOX’s Bryan Singer-directed X-Men drama hasn’t officially been Gifted to us, but production is nonetheless underway. Producers have shared a new still from the mysterious mutant drama, featuring at least two familiar faces.
Far and away, our most rabid curiosity toward FOX’s Bryan Singer-directed X-Men drama hasn’t been with casting, but the dang title. At long last, we may have been Gifted an official name by a photo of the first table read, along with an Originals star.
It boggles my mind that it’s been almost 17 years since the very first X-Men opened in theaters. Where did that time go? There was one X-Men movie, I blinked, and then there were 10. It’s like some crazy time paradox; maybe when I wasn’t paying attention Hugh Jackman went back in time and stopped Jennifer Lawrence from killing Peter Dinklage.
We’re not even going to harp on a missing title for FOX’s Bryan Singer-directed X-Men drama, thanks to the latest addition. Multiple Whedon-verse alum Amy Acker has been set as the series’ second major lead, along with several new castings that include recognizable mutants.
When Logan finally fades to black, it brings Hugh Jackman’s 17-year run as Wolverine to a close. It is an emphatic and definitive ending, not just to Jackman’s Wolverine series, but also to the X-Men franchise as a whole.
We still don’t even have a title for FOX’s Bryan Singer-directed X-Men drama, much less a sense of how many familiar X-faces will populate it. Now, after adding True Blood alum Stephen Moyer in a leading role, the X-drama creates another original mutant with Incorporated star Sean Teale.
We’ve long wondered what, if any connection FOX’s Bryan Singer-directed X-Men drama might have to the movie franchise, though the latest dips a bit outside its reality. True Blood alum Stephen Moyer (as well as Rogue one Anna Paquin’s husband) will topline the mutant drama, albeit in a brand-new role.
FOX’s Bryan Singer-directed X-Men drama doesn’t have a name, or even many confirmed characters, at least until now. Recent Gotham alum Jamie Chung will suit up as Marvel’s Blink, who Singer had previously showcased in Days of Future Past.
We still don’t know what to actually call FOX’s Bryan Singer-directed X-Men drama, but fresh off the success of Legion, our new series is already casting. Blair Redford has joined in the role of our first notable mutant, potentially providing a clue to the plot.
The X-Men movie franchise remains somewhat in flux after the mixed reception of Bryan Singer’s Apocalypse, but it looks the the director will have his share of new mutants in the meantime. FOX confirms that Singer will officially direct the new X-Men universe TV series pilot, in addition to producing.
