Die-hard fans of the X-Men series can now make a whoopee because their favorite mutants are making their way to the small screen. Yes, you read it right. Another X-Men TV series is coming soon.
20th Century Fox has partnered with Marvel to produce an installment that will follow parents of mutant offspring. The X-Men TV series is yet to be titled. Meanwhile, we list 5 important things to know about the planned series.
#1 Long-time X-Men movie director Bryan Singer will work on this untitled project. If the pilot episode leads to a full series order, the series will join another X-Men TV series, FX’s Legion.
#2 Not much is known about the plot of the new series yet. However, Variety learned that Matt Nix will write the script for the X-Men TV series. The story will revolve around a couple who connects to an underground crew of mutants after realizing their children have superhuman powers.
#3 Bryan Singer, who recently directed X-Men Apocalypse, will also serve as executive producer alongside Matt Nix, Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg, plus Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory.
#4 Fox’s project is quite a feather in Marvel’s cap. To date, we have seen Marvel working on TV takes with Netflix, Freeform, FX, and ABC.
#5 20th Century Fox might be working for the first time after collaborating with Marvel on a TV show, but it is not the first time a studio has worked with a comic creator to make a full series. Lucifer and Gotham were Fox’s earlier projects with DC Comics.
Jonathan Davis, president for creative affairs of 20th Century Fox Television commented:
“Working with Marvel on a television series for Fox has been a professional dream for our head of development, Michael Thorn, and all of us at the studio.”
