The Fox Network announced on 24th January 2017 that it has ordered a pilot for the new live-action X-Men series from the showrunner himself, Matt Nix.
The show is currently being made in partnership with Marvel but is referred as Untitled Marvel Action-Adventure Series, it is based on two parents who are obligated to hide out after discovering that their childer have mutant abilities. The setting of the series is in a time when the government is belligerent against mutants and as they join hands with other families whom they meet while on their way, the family is bound to do everything that can possibly done by them for their family’s survival.
The network, Fox, recently spoke about the series on a TV conference in LA in which the producer of the series, Lauren Shuler Donner, informed IGN that it is highly likely to subsume a version of the Sentinels. The Sentinels are basically the robots who are hunting for mutants, and they were created by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee in X-Men #14 in November 1965. Despite the fact that the fans of the Sentinels are used to it, Donner said that the TV version of the adversary of the mutants is going to be small scale.
Matt Nix actually did give the confirmation that the show will concede the happenings of all that has emerged in the X-Men film franchise but is unable to fit in any specific time period.
Up till now, there is no news on the casting of the series nor any details for when the show may air but it is going to air on FX, which is Fox’s sister network. FX will also premiere Legion on the 2nd of February, 2017 which is it’s own X-Men related series.
