Deadpool, Dredd, and more X-Men are all coming to the small screen.
Let’s start with the most concrete of the three: Bryan Singer’s The Gifted, which premieres on FOX this fall. It focuses on a family that gets involved with an underground group while attempting to protect their mutant kids.
Confirmed cast includes mutants Eclipse (Sean Teale), Blink (Jamie Chung), Polaris (Emma Dumont), Thunderbird (Blair Redford); and the Strucker family played by Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker, Natalie Alyn Lind, and Percy Hynes White.
Next up: Deadpool is getting an animated series helmed by Donald and Stephen Glover.
FXX has ordered 10 episodes for a premier sometime in 2018. Marvel TV chief Jeph Lobe – who also oversees FX’s Legion – had this to say about the new project:
“Deadpool, Donald and FX — the perfect fit for the Merc with the Mouth! We’re thrilled that our relationship with FX that started with Legion continues with what is sure to be a groundbreaking show in adult animation.”
Finally: IM Global is working with Rebellion games on Dredd TV series.
“We’re very excited to be beginning the journey to get more of Judge Dredd’s Mega-City One on the television screen. Thanks to the legions of fans who have kept up pressure on social media, and a lot of background work and enthusiasm, we aim to make a big budget production that will satisfy both our vast comics audience and the even greater general screen-watching public.”
Not a lot of details are available at this point – they don’t have a distributor, yet. This will definitely be one to watch. Karl Urban has been trying for years to get a sequel to the movie off the ground, so there’s a slim chance he may sign on. *crosses fingers*
Which one are you looking forward to the most?
