We had heard rumors that there was a new X-Men series coming and that it would take place in the X-Men cinematic universe. Well, it turns out that it was true. In fact, Fox has officially ordered the pilot for the series from producer Bryan Singer, and they’ve hired Matt Nix (Burn Notice) to write as well as produce.
Variety says that the pilot “will focus on two ordinary parents who discover 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.” So obviously the pilot will serve as an origin story for those involved.
Fox had already picked up the upcoming series Legion, which looks pretty darn good. So this would be there second. Are they headed the way of the CW? That would be awesome. I am a firm believer that these properties work much better on television. I can’t wait to see where this goes. Although I am kind of done with Singer.
