If the Second Trailer Tells Us Anything, ‘The Gifted’ May Actually Be Pretty Decent

One of the more interesting superhero television shows that’s been in the pipe for a while is The Gifted, which is set in Fox’s X-Men movie universe… somewhere. I mean, it’s a world where the X-Men and the Brotherhood both existed at some point, but may have gone underground… or gotten wiped out… or something?

Anyway, the show focuses on a couple of parents going (played by Stephen Moyer and Amy Acker) on the run with their mutant children (Natalie Alyn Lind and Percy Hynes White). They get involved with a mutant underground while the government hunts them. Frankly, it just looks pretty neat. We got a trailer for the show back in May, but now the network has put out a second.

And you know what? It looks pretty damned good.

I mean, for what you can tell from a trailer.

The Gifted premieres October 2nd on Fox.

Trae Dorn

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
