X-Men pilot on the way for Fox

X-Men First Class photoMutants unite! An untitled X-Men pilot has been officially ordered by Fox.

According to Variety, the action-adventure program will be developed by 20th TV and Marvel Television, and will be written and executive produced by Burn Notice creator Matt Nix. Bryan Singer, who’s been heavily involved in the X-Men films, is on board as an executive producer as well.

Plot details are limited at this point, but it has been revealed that the pilot will follow two ordinary parents who learn that their children have special mutant powers. When a threatening government discovers the children’s abilities, the family is forced underground and teams up with a network of mutants. The fight for survival commences.

The project is the second Marvel TV program heading to Fox. Legion, a Bryan Singer-produced effort between FX Productions and Marvel TV, is scheduled to premiere Feb. 8, 2017.

The next film to hit screens with an X-Men influence is Logan, which profiles Hugh Jackman‘s Wolverine character. It slashes into theaters March 3, 2017.

    Can you say “over-saturation”?! I like the movies but doing something for TV is a bit much. People will start to tire of the whole franchise before much longer. Plus if they do something with the one series, will they carry that through on the other? Not everyone watches both movies/tv versions of shows. I think it would be a disappointment to have TV do this.

    Nooo! Save these for the movies only. The TV is getting too saturated with superpowered heros! Remember the show Hero’s? Or Hero’s Reborn? Or any other show?-They will get cancelled and they will ruin the franchise! Please Don’t do this.

    I’ll only get on board if Mystique is in it.
