Marvel issued the intriguing debut trailer for new Fox series The Gifted. Directed by X-Men veteran Bryan Singer and set in that franchise’s larger universe, the series follows the suburban Strucker family, whose children exhibit mutant powers.
The clip opens with Lauren (Natalie Alyn Lind) explaining her mysterious powers to younger brother Andy (Percy Hynes White) and promising to teach him. “You know when you put your hand out the window of a moving car, you can feel the air and guide it?” she asks. “I can push the air together, water too, other stuff.” Later, when Andy encounters a group of hostile school bullies, Lauren swoops in for a rescue.
The supernatural teens link up with an underground network of mutants when pursued by crawling robot spiders and government agents who call Lauren “a very troubled young woman.”
The Gifted is expected to arrive this fall, though Fox hasn’t announced the premiere date.
