The Gifted Poster Tells Us Family is the Ultimate Power
Fox’s upcoming X-Men based TV series The Gifted gets its first poster and it harkens a touching subject – family.
The Gifted is set for release October 2nd and will star Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker, Natalie Alyn Lind and Percy Hynes White. The new poster speaks volumes about the potential for the TV series focusing on the Strucker family. I’m all for a good mutant series but I hope they don’t overdo this and give the whole my-family-is-my-superpower schtick. That’ll drain the life out of the series TBH.
