Yesterday afternoon, the big news came out via the Hollywood Reporter that Fox has ordered up a pilot for a brand new live action X-Men television show.The little news that has come out is that the show will be based on “two ordinary parents who discover their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive”. So far, it looks like it will be written by Matt Nix from Burn Notice and be executive produced by Bryan Singer, Lauren Schuler Donner, Jeph Loeb, Simon Kinberg, and Jim Chory. With FX getting their own X-Men show featuring Charles Xavier’s son, it remains to be seen what direction this new show will take.
Another mystery that will be exciting to see is which X-Men will make the cut on to the show, however, don’t expect any big name characters from the movies as they have done in the Agents of Shield show, only alluding to major heroes.
What lesser known X-Men do you want to see in the new show? Let us know in the comments below!
