THE GIFTED Trailer Introduces Lost X-Men and a Family on the Run

Next season on Fox, the live-action X-Men universe is coming to TV in The Gifted. Earlier tonight, the first full trailer for the series not only called out the X-Men and the Brotherhood by name, it also showcased a few X-Men who didn’t make it into movie theaters while introducing fans to the Strucker family and their two mutant children.

Unlike the teaser that premiered last week, this trailer added some much needed context for The Gifted. Apparently, Stephen Moyer’s Reed Strucker hunts mutants for the government, and that’s going to complicate things when his son, Andy (Percy Hynes), and daughter, Lauren (Natalie Alyn) are exposed as mutants. Amy Acker is playing Reed’s wife, Caitlin, and she appears to recognize that their children’s powers are both a curse and a blessing. The trailer also hints at the incident that puts the Struckers in the uncomfortable spotlight and sends Coby Bell’s character after them.

The opening seconds of this trailer also introduce Polaris, a.k.a. Lorna Dane (Emma Dumont). In the X-Men comics, Polaris the daughter of Magneto, and she also has powers of magnetism. Blink  (Jamie Chung) and Thunderbird (Blair Redford) also appear in the new footage, as we witness Reed cutting a deal with the mutant underground for his family’s safety. This video seems to define Lauren’s powers as telekinesis and it also implies that her abilities manifested before those of her brother. However, Andy’s power appears to be much more destructive in nature.

X-Men director Bryan Singer helmed the pilot episode of The Gifted, which was created and written by Matt Nix. Fox is expected to announce its premiere plans for the series later this week.
