The Gifted: Polaris, Blink And Many More Mutants Get The Spotlight Via New Character Promos


Curious to know a little more about the various mutants set to appear in The Gifted? IGN has just the answer.

As Fox’s X-Men family drama gears up for a premiere in the fall – October, to be specific – the outlet has relayed nine character promos designed to introduce The Gifted‘s ensemble cast – both human and otherwise.

Hatched by Matt Nix and X-Men stalwart Bryan Singer, the latter of whom will direct The Gifted‘s pilot episode, Fox’s small-screen superhero series is part of an onslaught of comic book adaptations headed to television over the coming weeks and months, and if the studio’s latest offering reaches the dizzying heights of Legion, viewers ought to be very happy indeed.

When it comes to those character portraits, below you’ll find four of the nine promos, including new looks at Reed (Stephen Moyer), Caitlin (Amy Acker), Lauren (Natalie Alyn Lind) and Andy (Percy Hynes White). Beyond that, there’s also a sneak peek at three of the show’s more prominent mutants: Blink (Jamie Chung), Polaris (Emma Dumont) and Thunderbird (Blair Redford). IGN’s media player tends to be temperamental, so if you’re having problems, click on through to view each character promo at the source.

Here’s the official logline:

Action-adventure family drama THE GIFTED, from Marvel, tells the 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 joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.

Fox will introduce viewers to The Gifted on Monday, October 2nd, when Sean Teale, Coby, and John Proudstar will round out the ensemble cast.
