Fox has made a pit stop on the way to Comic-Con International: San Diego to drop off the new key art for upcoming X-Men television series The Gifted.
The key art, which can be seen below, features the suburban family at the center of Fox’s super-powered family drama: Reed Strucker (Stephen Moyer), a district attorney who prosecutes mutants, Reed’s wife, Caitlin (Amy Acker), and their children Lauren (Natalie Alyn Lind) and Andy (Percy Hynes). They live a relatively normal life until the children discover they have mutant powers (and are possibly a version of Fenris from the Marvel Comics universe).
Also featured in the key art is the new tagline for The Gifted, “Family is the ultimate power.”
The Gifted will have its first Comic-Con International: San Diego panel in Ballroom 20 on Friday. The show's cast and producers will be in attendance and con-goers will be the first to see an exclusive sneak peek at the new series.
The Gifted will be present throughout other areas of the convention in the form of a “gene testing” site where convention attendees can find out whether they’re a mutant and advertising throughout downtown San Diego.
The Gifted tells the emotional story of a suburban couple whose ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family seeks help from an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.
Set within the “X-Men” universe, the series stars Stephen Moyer (SHOTS FIRED, “True Blood”), Amy Acker (“Person of Interest”), Natalie Alyn Lind (GOTHAM) and Percy Hynes White (“Night at the Museum 3”) as the STRUCKER family. Also featured in the series are Sean Teale (“Reign”) as ECLIPSE/MARCOS DIAZ; Jamie Chung (GOTHAM) as BLINK/CLARICE FERGUSON; Emma Dumont (“Aquarius”) as POLARIS/LORNA DANE; Blair Redford (“Satisfaction”) as THUNDERBIRD/JOHN PROUDSTAR; and Coby Bell (“Burn Notice”) as Sentinel Services Agent JACE TURNER. The series is written by Matt Nix (“Burn Notice”), directed by Bryan Singer (the “X-Men” franchise”) and executive-produced by Nix, Singer, Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg (“X-Men: Apocalypse,” “X-Men: Days of Future Past”) and Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory.
The Gifted premieres Oct. 2 on Fox with a pilot episode directed by X-Men movies director Bryan Singer.
