For the first time in a history that includes a schism of film rights and dueling stories, Marvel and Fox (the TV network) are giving us an X-Men television show - one that seems strikingly familiar. The show will follow two siblings as they discover their mutant powers, and the government agency out to stop them.

The X-Men franchise has spawned a number of movies over the last almost 20 years, but it wasn't until earlier this year that Fox brought the property to live-action television with FX's Legion.

While there is no concrete date set for the premiere of the series, FOX is aiming for a fall release.

Eclipse comes in with the most intriguing line of the whole trailer: "The X-Men, the Brotherhood, we don't even know if they exist anymore".

Watch The Gifted trailer below. Amy Acker is playing Reed's wife, Caitlin, and she appears to recognize that their children's powers are both a curse and a blessing.

Maxwell himself made a duck and it was only really Axar Patel who offered any resistance to make 22 as the Kings crumbled. On the other hand, Glenn Maxwell's men will be high on confidence after beating leaders Mumbai and Kolkata on the trot.

So it isn't like we're exactly left wanting for more, so what is it that is going to help The Gifted stand out from the crowd.

Their father, played by True Blood star Stephen Moyer, works for the government and is responsible for rounding up mutants.

The opening seconds of this trailer also introduce Polaris, a.k.a. Lorna Dane (Emma Dumont). After the sensitive, loner boy (Percy Hynes White) of the family gets bullied and unleashes some Carrie-style telepathic powers on his school, the parents take their kids into hiding, joining an underground network of persecuted mutants.

This new Monday lineup means that Gotham needs a new home, and that will be Thursdays at 8 p.m. Trust, I'm gassing this just a bit, but it is an interesting thing to point out as Marvel and DC continue to cultivate their television properties over various channels; they are bound to butt heads.
