Fox’s upcoming “X-Men” spinoff “The Gifted” will not cross over with the films produced by the company’s movie studio or its other TV series.
Speaking Friday at Comic-Con in San Diego, showrunner Matt Nix downplayed the potential for any crossover with other iterations of Marvel’s mutant franchise. “The Gifted,” according to Nix, takes place in its own unique timeline.
“One of the great favors that ‘Days of Future Past’ did for all of us is establish many streams,” Nix said, referring to the 2014 film directed by Bryan Singer. “I guess that one answer is that this is one of those many streams.”
“The Gifted,” he added, does “not share a universe with” the films or other “X-Men” series. »

From the moment Saïd Taghmaoui signed on to star opposite Gal Gadot in Wonder Woman, the DC faithful cobbled together to draw up nine kinds of fan theories on who Taghmaoui would play in the Patty Jenkins-directed triumph.
It was only when Wonder Woman was ready to hit theaters that budding viewers identified Taghmaoui’s to be Sameer, a French Moroccan secret agent and master of disguise. But it seems the actor’s time in Hollywood’s comic book universe is far from over.
At San Diego Comic-Con yesterday, Fox confirmed that Saïd Taghmaoui will appear in Legion season 2 as Amal Farouk. Better known to you, I, and the patients of Clockworks Psychiatric Hospital as the Shadow King, Farouk spent much of the show’s inaugural season infesting the mind of David Haller (Dan Stevens »

“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. »

Some new Deadpool 2 set pics have landed online. The film has been shooting up in lead actor Ryan Reynolds‘ home town of Vancouver, Canada for almost two weeks now, and although we’ve already seen some imagery from the set, these are the first photos that show off the potty-mouthed superhero in full costume.
Ryan Reynolds returns to the character, the so-called Merc with a mouth for another adventure, which also stars Zazie Beetz (Atlanta) as Domino, a luck-manipulating mutant, and Josh Brolin as Cable, the villain of the piece. There’s also Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and Stefan Kapicic as the voice of Colossus, all of whom were seen in the last movie, released in February 2016.

The recent X-Men movies have been a massive success for 20th Century Fox. Kicking off with X-Men: First Class in 2011, then X-Men: Days Of Future Past three years later, and then last year’s X-Men: Apocalypse, the films have grossed a whopping $1.6 billion over the three movies, so it comes at no surprise that the studio are pushing ahead with a fourth film in the series, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, which is set to roll into production soon. We thought we’d assemble everything we know about the planned superhero movie so far. Check it all out below.
We’ll kick things off with the cast. The good news is that the likes of Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), and Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler) are all returning for the fourth movie in the series, as will James McAvoy, who once again will play the role of Charles Xavier/ Professor X. Sophie Turner will be playing the role of Jean Grey/ Dark Phoenix are rumours suggest that Jessica Chastain will play the villain in the movie (these rumours are as yet unconfirmed).
Chastain would play the role of Lilandra in the movie. According to the official Marvel Wiki, Lilandra is ‘a member of the royal family of the extraterrestrial Shi’ar Empire, Princess-Majestrix Lilandra Neramani was born on the Shi’ar homeworld known as the Aerie. The eldest heir to the Shi’ar throne was Lilandra’s older sister, Cal’syee. However, for her crime of killing her mother and one of her sisters, Cal’syee was denied the throne and exiled into space. Cal’syee’s younger brother D’ken was appointed majestor (emperor) instead.’

Chastain’s addition to the cast would lend it some considerable weight, and we hope her involvement in confirmed in the coming few days.
Following on from Matthew Vaughn, who helmed ‘First Class’, and Bryan Singer, who took the reigns of ‘Days Of Future Past’ and ‘Apocalypse’, Simon Kinberg will direct Dark Phoenix. Kinberg is a talented individual who has a long-standing relationship with the X-Men franchise. He has written X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men: Days Of Future Past, X-Men: Apocalypse and was a producer on all of those movies, as well as X-Men: First Class, Deadpool and this year’s massive hit Logan. He will also co-produce the upcoming X-Force, Gambit and The New Mutants. X-Men: Dark Phoenix will be his directorial debut, but will all of his experience, the franchise is in very good hands.

Channing Tatum's Gambit movie has been drifting along at sea for quite some time now. It's already lost two directors over the last few years in the form of Rupert Wyatt (Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes) and Doug Liman (Edge Of Tomorrow), but producers Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner have often confirmed that they still want to press ahead with it.
In amongst the usual rumours of 'creative differences' and the like, Kinberg himself has mused that with a project like Gambit, there's no point doing half a job. The team seemingly want to do it right, or not at all. »

After being rumored for the Sunspot role earlier this month, Henry Zaga has officially come aboard, with newcomer Blu Hunt also signing on to play Dani Moonstar, a.k.a. Mirage. Blu Hunt was mentioned in a report last month as one of the contenders for that role, alongside True O'Brien. These two roles fill out the main cast, with just one key role left to be filled at this time.
Writer-director Josh Boone took to Instagram last May to reveal the characters that would be featured in his New Mutants movie. Those characters were Magik, Wolfsbane, Dani Moonstar, Cannonball, Sunspot and Warlock.

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 »

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. »
