THE GIFTED Trailer Shows Us a World Filled with X-MEN

On Friday afternoon, San Diego Comic-Con treated us to the latest trailer for the upcoming X-Men-adjacent series The Gifted, which gives us a much better look at the cast of mutant characters we’ll see in the series.

The video above shines a light on the adventures of Lauren and Andy Strucker, two mutant teens who have to go on the run after Andy’s powers develop at a school dance. Their father, played by True Blood‘s Stephen Moyer, works as a district attorney whose focus appears to be the regulation of mutants in this X-Men-filled world, but (thankfully) knows that family comes first.

Along the way, the Strucker family meets up with a number of mutant freedom fighters that include Blink, Polaris, Eclipse, and Thunderbird. The trailer shows off all of their powers in pretty spectacular fashion, including green accents on Polaris’ magnetic powers and a pretty neat way of showing Thunderbird’s heightened senses.

This series will truly be chock-full of X-men and Brotherhood of Evil Mutants references, likewise some Marvel character cameos as the show progresses. Even the throwaway joke made by Eclipse (he’s this world’s Sunspot in case you were wondering) about his girlfriend not minding being burned could be a subtle nod that we’ll someday meet Amara “Magma” Aquilla in the comics.

What are your thoughts on this latest look of The Gifted? What other mutants from the X-Men comics would you like to see in the series? Let’s discuss in the comments below!
