The Gifted 2017 Preview: Series Premiere Sneak Peek (VIDEO)
Tonight we kick off a brand new Marvel series on FOX called The Gifted and with me being such a fan of The X-Men, I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am about this. I have watched the first six minutes of this show (which I have included below for you viewing pleasure) and I was left on the edge of my seat wanting more.
The six minute preview below shows as Lorna, John and Marcos find and rescue Clarice from the police, who have been hunting her down. They all have mutant powers and use them to try and escape the police. In the preview, Marcos finds himself shot and Lorna finds herself arrested.
Lorna, John, Marcos and Clarice are also known as Polaris (Lorna), Thunderbird (John), Eclipse (Marcos) and Blink (Clarice). Polaris is the daughter of Magneto and Blink made an appearance in the movie X-Men: Days of Future Past and in The Gifted we will finally see more of her character’s story.
The show will revolve around the Strucker family. Reed, Caitlin, Lauren and Andy. Reed and Caitlin are forced to take their children, Lauren and Andy, on the run after realizing they have mutant powers. This is to keep them safe from the government who isn’t too open to the idea of people with mutant powers running around. The Strucker family will eventually join the Underground Community of Mutants which is lead by Thunderbird.
I am told that Stan Lee will make an appearance in tonight’s pilot, so make sure you stay on the look out for him! Check out the first six minutes of The Gifted season 1 below and let me know if you plan on watching with me tonight starting at 9/8c!
