Now that the premiere of Legion is behind us, mutant lovers can look ahead to Fox’s as yet untitled X-Men TV series. Set to follow a human couple who have a child with extraordinary abilities and are on the run from the government, the mysterious project has received a pilot order and will be realized by director Bryan Singer.
Not wasting any time to get the casting process up and running, actor Blair Redford (Switched at Birth, Satisfaction) has become the first to climb aboard in an unnamed role. Set to play “the strong-headed Native American leader of the underground network,” theories are already running rampant placing him as either Thunderbird, Warpath or even Forge. Although it would certainly be cool to see any one of those pan out, let’s not rule out the possibility this is an original character.

It has been announced that the first casting of the upcoming Fox X-Men series is in the books, if you will. My mother being Cherokee makes this yummy for me, as the character is being referred to as "Sam" and is being described as "the strong-headed Native American leader of the underground network." The character is being played by Blair Redford and the show's brief synopsis is as follows:
"The drama will focus 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."
"It's designed to sidestep questions like, 'Where is Wolverine?' You have to answer those questions. It exists in a world where those questions »

The other day, we found out that Matt Nix’s still untitled X-Men TV show had received an official pilot order from Fox, and since then, the Burn Notice creator has been teasing what to expect in a series of interviews. He’s not allowed to say too much, of course, but during a chat with Cnet.com, Nix does provide us with a few intriguing new tidbits of info.
We already know the premise will involve a human couple finding out that their child is a mutant, and then hitting the road to avoid being captured by a shadowy government agency. Obviously, the show is going to feature plenty of the mutant characters they meet along the way, but Nix suggests that the tale will unfold primarily from the humans’ perspective, and teases a more “intimate story” than the ones that have been adapted for the big screen.

So much for Bryan Singer, director of four of the X-Men films in the franchise, which include 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, taking a break from further future X-Men duties. He’s just signed up to take the driving seat for the pilot in Fox’s TV series which is as yet untitled.
After finishing up with last summer’s X-Men: Apocalypse Singer stated: “Right now, once this one is done, I’d like to do something really different.” and he couldn’t have chosen a project any more different with a movie about Queen frontman Freddie Mercury so aptly entitled Bohemian Rhapsody which has Mr Robot’s own Rami Malek in the lead as the legendary Mercury. Singer, who has also directed an updated 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, which is based on the Jules Verne novel, currently in pre-production, is in no way a newcomer to the TV arena. »

Singer is no amateur to this franchise as he has directed; X-Men: Apocalypse, X-Men: Days of Future Past (my favorite), X-Men 2, and the original X-Men. Let us also not forget that he directed one of the greatest cult movies of all time, The Usual Suspects, and he directed Superman Returns which both another writer and myself here actually liked quite a bit. The Fox X-Men TV series will be Singer's most recent venture after his TV shows Battle Creek and the Munster's reboot entitled Mockingbird Lane.
