Marvel Releases First Runaways Trailer at Nycc 2017; Exclusive Thoughts on Episode 1

  • Cinelinx
One of Marvel's most highly-anticipated new shows, Runaways, finally had the first trailer emerge at Nycc 2017! Check it out below! Plus, first thoughts on episode 1!

Since it was first released, Runaways has been one of my favorite comic series in the modern era. The way they consistently flipped the script with the audience with the kids thinking their parents are super heroes but are really villains and the way they came to grips with their powers was just fun to read. So, when Hulu first announced they would be creating a Runaways series with Marvel, not only was I excited but I thought it would make for a great series.

The first trailer they showed, during Nycc 2017, pretty much confirms those initial feelings.

This trailer is pretty much the comic series on the screen. Sure, there are a couple of minor changes, but it's nothing that will derail the show.

Watch The First Six Minutes Of The Gifted Right Now

There aren’t many shows that even have the theoretical possibility of getting me more interested in them than The Gifted. The Marvel Universe on television has mostly worked out for me, but more importantly, I want to know what Matt Nix does with the show, and I’m a pretty big fan of Amy Acker.

I’m not exactly sure how you keep an “on the run” story going forever, but it should be worth finding out where this can twist around its own gimmick. Previous looks at the show have already set things up pretty well, and if nothing else it looks like this is going to be a fun exploration of characters that goes a bit darker, much like the Netflix series we’ve seen so far.

You now have the chance to get a serious introduction with the first six minutes of the show so definitely check that out above,

Jeph Loeb Defends His Vision For Marvel's Inhumans

  • LRM Online
With everything Marvel has on television, and it's a lot -- 14 series across 5 networks -- plus growing concerns about viewer fatigue, the big question is why the Inhumans (and why now)? Early reviews of Marvel's Inhumans have been less than kind, suggesting that the series may not survive its first season (ABC is slotting it on Fridays, typically a death slot). Marvel is as opaque as any other entertainment organization, so Cbr went looking for answers but they came away with more questions, unfortunately.

As we like to say at Lrm, there are only a finite number of fans out there (and a limited number of hours per week). Considering that most of the well-known A and B-list heroes were already committed to film and TV franchises, the odds were high that the Inhumans could break through and capture a viable audience. Launching Inhumans now, given competition from other Marvel

‘The Gifted’ Showrunner Says Series Will Not Ignore X-Men

‘The Gifted’ Showrunner Says Series Will Not Ignore X-Men
The Gifted” showrunner Matt Nix said that the upcoming Fox series will not shy away from dealing with the X-Men universe.

“In our world, one of the things we’ll be unpacking is the specific relationship of this group of characters to the X-Men,” Nix said Tuesday at the TCA summer press tour. “It’s in the trailer that the X-Men are gone. And that’s not a dodge, like ‘The X-Men are gone and we’re never going to mention them again!’ We’re going to be exploring it. It’s a huge deal to these guys. It’s a huge deal in the world. It’s one of the central mysteries of the show.”

Nix also addressed how the series will intersect with the X-Men cinematic universe.

“There’s a whole sort of historical mythology,” he said. “There’s not going to be a situation where the television show is driving the movies or the

‘Wonder Woman’ Star Saïd Taghmaoui Joins ‘Legion’ Season 2

‘Wonder Woman’ Star Saïd Taghmaoui Joins ‘Legion’ Season 2
Wonder Woman” star Saïd Taghmaoui will play Amahl Farouk — aka the Shadow King — in “Legion” season two. Noah Hawley, the creator of the FX drama series based on Marvel’s X-Men comics, announced the casting Thursday at Comic-Con.

“We are going to meet the Shadow King,” Hawley said.

The Shadow King was played in season one by Aubrey Plaza, who portrayed the character in the guise of protagonist David Haller’s friend Lenny, and Quinton Boisclair, who portrayed him as a monster who haunted Haller. Both actors will appear as those iterations of the character in season two.

The Shadow King was the only “Legion” character besides Haller taken from the Marvel comic books. All the other characters were original creations for the show. Executive producer Lauren Shuler Donner, who also produced Fox’s “X-Men” films, said that the character had originally been considered for a role in those movies.

Trailer For New X-Men Series The Gifted Is Here!

  • LRM Online
Earlier this year, FX and Marvel worked together to bring the incredibly unique series Legion to FX. The series followed David Haller, who may very well be the most powerful mutant known to man. The show isn’t your typical superhero show, and if you were looking for something less abstract and artsy, you may have been disappointed. However, if you are one of those people, then this new mutant-centric series from Fox, The Gifted, may be more up your alley.

Last week, we got a first look at the upcoming network show (the pilot of which is directed by longtime X-Men helmer Bryan Singer), and today, they released a full trailer, and we have to say, it’s not half bad. Oftentimes with television shows — even with the best ones — we’re left with cheesy, silly-looking trailers that aren’t quite clear about stating their premise. Given the limited

Bryan Singer’s Dysfunctional X-Men Family Takes Center Stage In New Images For The Gifted

Though it’s never quite hit the dizzying box office heights of, say, Captain America: Civil War or even Suicide Squad, Fox’s X-Men universe is currently bursting at the seams with content, and it wasn’t too long ago that the studio nailed down release plans for three of its biggest 2018 tentpoles: Deadpool 2, New Mutants and X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

Those ambitious plans are about to spill over on to the small screen, too, via The Gifted, Bryan Singer and Matt Nix’s star-studded family drama that thrusts two ordinary parents (Amy Acker, Stephen Moyer) into extraordinary circumstances upon discovering that their two teenagers – namely Lauren (Gotham’s Natalie Alyn Lind) and Andy (Percy Hynes White) – boast mutant abilities.

What follows is a desperate fight for survival, as Acker and Moyer’s parents are forced to go on the run from shady government forces in order to protect their nearest and dearest.

Marvel Debuts First Full Trailer For Upcoming X-Men TV Show The Gifted

Fox is aggressively growing their X-Men cinematic universe, and after the massive success of films like Logan and Deadpool, it’s easy to see why. With projects such as New Mutants, X-Force, X-Men: Dark Phoenix and Deadpool 2 all cramming up the pipeline, there’s certainly a lot to look forward to for fans of the franchise, but it’s not only on the big screen that the mutants are popping up.

The studio’s been making the push into television as well, and after premiering the excellent Legion earlier this year, they’re now looking to bring us yet another X-Men show in the form of The Gifted.

‘The Gifted’ Trailer: Bryan Singer’s Marvel Show Brings Mutants to Fox

‘The Gifted’ Trailer: Bryan Singer’s Marvel Show Brings Mutants to Fox
The kids are more than alright on Fox’s upcoming series “The Gifted.”

As one might expect from the title, the series revolves around two siblings (Natalie Alyn Lind, Percy Hynes) who have a little something else going on for them. Except instead of a rather advanced Iq, their giftedness means they have advanced DNA that gives them mutant powers. When their average suburban parents (Stephen Moyer and Amy Acker, trying to pretend they’re in any way “average”) realize their kids’ powers, the whole family goes on the run to evade a hostile government that isn’t so keen superhuman gifts. An underground network of mutants take in the family, and together they fight for survival.

Chimichangas at the ready! Fxx (the home of Archer) is bringing us a grown-up animated series about Deadpool...

Deadpool is coming to television… in animated form, anyway. The merc with the mouth, who's played by Ryan Reynolds on the big screen, managed to turn the rules of the blockbuster film industry upside down with an R-rated, low-budget, supremely lucrative 2016 solo film. And now he will get an accompanying animated series. However, don’t expect this Marvel tentpole offering to cater to the kiddies.

The Merc With a Mouth is coming to television.

Fxx and Marvel Television are officially teaming up to develop an adult-oriented Deadpool animated series, with Atlanta‘s Donald Glover on board as showrunner, along with frequent collaborator and younger brother, Stephen Glover. The as-yet-untitled TV show has landed a ten-episode season order, and it’ll hit the airwaves in 2018.

Without any casting details to report, it’s still early, early days on Fxx’s Deadpool animated series, but if nothing else, today’s exciting announcement proves that Marvel’s foul-mouthed anti-hero is very much in vogue.

Marvel’s The Gifted: First Footage Hits For Fox’s New Mutant-Centric Series!

  • LRM Online
It’s hard to tell at this point which medium has more comic book adaptations: film or TV. Either way, we can at least enjoy the fact that the filmmakers are doing a pretty solid job of giving each franchise its own unique flavor, so as not to wear out the genre prematurely. For example, take a look at Marvel shows like Legion and Daredevil. They are two completely different entities with completely different tones, styles, and target audiences. Just as not every single comic book is made to appeal to the same audience as another book, these shows are being carefully catered to their respective audiences.

Yet another series in the long list of shows comes in the form of the Fox series The Gifted. The series is notable for following mutants — you know, in the vein of the X-Men and all that — but it’s also notable for
