Watch the First Trailer for Fox's New X-Men Series The Gifted
May 16, 2017
With seasoned X-Men director Bryan Singer at the helm, it looks as though Fox's new X-Men series The Gifted will bring the excitement of the X-Men films to the small screen. The new series premiered its debut trailer and fans got a glimpse into how difficult life is for up and coming teenage mutants. As if high school weren't hard enough.
Siblings Lauren (Natalie Alyn Lind) and Andy (Percy Hynes White) Strucker develop their mutant abilities amidst turmoil throughout the country. As their two ordinary parents take them on the run from the government that'd lock them away, they find an underground community of mutants fighting to survive.
For Marvel fans out there, the last name "Strucker" is a familiar one belonging to the Hydra villain Baron Wolfgang von Strucker, who appeared in Captain America: The Winder Soldier and Avengers: Age of Ultron as the scientist behind the Maximoff twins' powers. In the comics, Strucker had two children Andreas and Andrea von Strucker collectively called Fenris, who could fly and generate powerful blasts of energy while holding hands.
Before the series comes out, check out the most recent appearance of the Strucker twins in BLACK PANTHER VOL 2: NATION UNDER OUR FEET in local comic shops now.
