SDCC 2017: New extended trailer for Fox’s ‘The Gifted’ released

The Gifted - Blink

FOX TV has completed its panel for new X-Men universe series The Gifted. As with most of the TV and film panels at Comic Con an extended trailer was shown and that trailer has now made its way online.

Showing off more new footage from the series we get to see the Strucker family joining forces with Blink, Thunderbird and Polaris to escape the clutches of a shadowy, anti-mutant government agency. The trailer also features a little X-related namedrop. But reports from fans at the panel on twitter say it was discussed how The Gifted will exist in a separate universe to the films.

The Gifted will premiere on Monday nights 8/9c on FOX. For all our SDCC 2017 coverage click here!
