Switched at Birth Review: Believing in Life After This

22 March 2017 2:32 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Switched at Birth fans are very lucky the final season was able to feature the series’ landmark 100th episode. The series chose to mark this milestone in two important ways. The first is, of course, the return of Gilles Marini as Bay and Daphne’s deceased father Angelo. It’s left up to interpretation if his return is in his daughter’s heads, or if his spirit is actually guiding them in a very visceral way one last time. Secondly, the episode is directed by series regular Lea Thompson. Only someone who has lived with this story since the beginning could have told

Tuesday’s milestone 100th installment (Freeform, 9/8c) is “quite an emotional episode about Angelo coming back through” Ally (MacGyver‘s Tristin Mays), the girl who received his heart via transplant, executive producer Lizzy Weiss previews.

Dubbed Gifted (subject to change), the pilot — from writer Matt Nix (Burn Notice) and director Bryan Singer — is said to share DNA with Marvel’s X-Men films. It follows two non-mutant parents (played by True Blood‘s Stephen Moyer and Person of Interest‘s Amy Acker) who learn that their children possess mutant abilities; the discovery leads them to join up with an underground network of mutants to keep their family safe from their anti-mutant government. »

X-Men TV Show: Name and Cast Revealed, Including Some Mutant Names

11 March 2017 12:46 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The new Thunderbird!

We now know that the much anticipated X-Men TV series gifted finally has a title, and it is called Gifted (or possibly X-Men: Gifted). Since this is not a Christmas show where Santy Claus is delivering gifts on December 25th, one can assume it refers to the various powers young mutants discover, and then how they learn to develop them -- for good or evil. Lrm has already reported that Bryan Singer will direct the pilot, and X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner shared the news on something kids call "Twitter" in a casting reading photo. Check it out.

11 March 2017 3:55 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As it gears up to go into production, producer Lauren Shuler Donner has revealed that Marvel and Fox’s new X-Men TV pilot is going by the title Gifted.

Lauren Shuler Donner (@ShuDonner) March 11, 2017

If the title sounds familiar to fans, that’s because it was the name of the first story arc from Joss Whedon and John Cassaday’s Astonishing X-Men comic book series. However, while that arc dealt with a possible cure for the mutant gene, the TV series will follow two parents who go on the run from the government after discovering their children have the X gene, and link up with an underground group of mutants fighting for freedom. »

"I got to a point in the story, and I put my pen down and I realized we can't do this," she tells The Hollywood Reporter.

Fox’s Untitled X-Men Pilot Adds Jamie Chung As Blink

22 February 2017 9:30 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Slowly but surely, the pieces are beginning to fall into place for Marvel and Fox’s untitled X-Men pilot.

With Matt Nix and Bryan Singer locked in – the latter of whom will direct – today brings confirmation that Gotham‘s Jamie Chung is making the switch from DC to Marvel in order to play Blink, a character imbued with the powers of teleportation. Described as “sarcastic, lively and a bit of a tomboy,” Blink (Aka Clarice Fong) is a superpowered persona bursting with personality, though that naturally strong exuberance is left battered and bruised after a “sudden and traumatic upheaval of her life. As she adjusts to the new people and places that are suddenly ‘home,’ she is slowly becoming herself again.”

In light of today’s casting coup, Chung will star opposite Blair Redford (Switched at Birth), who signed on for an undisclosed role (Thunderbird? Warpath?) only a fortnight ago. »
