The Gifted

Byran Singer is once again playing in the X-Men universe this time with The Gifted. The Gifted focuses on a suburban couple, Reed Stucker (Stephen Moyer) and Caitlin Stucker (Amy Acker), who are forced to go on the run when they find out their children Lauren and Andy (Natalie Alyn Lind and Percy Hynes White) have mutant powers.

Additional casting details announced by Variety include Sean Teale as Eclipse, Jamie Chung as Blink, Blair Redford as Thunderbird, Emma Dumont as Polaris, and Coby Bell as Jace Turner.

The trailer shows that the  whereabouts of the X-Men and The Brotherhood of Evil Mutants are unknown. Reed and his family face additional complications due to his job being part of law enforcement crackdown on mutants, which ups the ante on keeping the kids safe from themselves and others while trying to fond someone who can help them control their powers.

The trailer has that original feel of the first X-Men film where this explores the feeling of been hates and an outcast. If the show can keep this feeling and Fox doesn’t panic this show has some potential.

Actual Old Man Logan

The people over at The Warp Zone gives us their newest parody and it is old man Logan. Wolverine takes on Father Time and finds him to be one of toughest opponents.  Logan is trapped in a old folks home and spends his time trying to escape. Loving tapioca pudding and talking about the old days.

Netflix Original Series Marvel’s Iron Fist – I Am Danny Rand

It is only a short time before we get to see the Fourth Defender, Danny Rand.  On March 17 Netflix and Marvel will give us ‘Iron Fist’.  To help us get to know Danny Rand better Netflix released a featurette titled “I am Danny Rand” that explores his 15 year disappearance and the cold reality of what he faces on his return to New York.

I like many of you I know very little of the “Iron Fist” or of Danny Rand. I have to believe that from the work that Netflix and Marvel have done on the previous series, Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. That this series will continue the high level of story tell will give us another hero to cheer.

Billionaire Danny Rand (Finn Jones) returns to New York City after being missing for years, trying to reconnect with his past and his family legacy. He fights against the criminal element corrupting New York City with his kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist.

Marvel Introduces Their “Runaways”

Marvel has announced the group of young actors that will make up make what they called ‘first group of young actors’ for ‘Runaways’

“Runaways’ created by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona about a group of kids discover that their parents are part of an evil crime organization known as “The Pride“. The teenagers then band together to atone for their parents crimes. The show will be on Hulu  and as at this moment I can not find where it will premiere in Canada.

Marvel introduced the actors with a brief description of the character they will portraying.

Rhenzy Feliz

Rhenzy Feliz (“Teen Wolf,” “Casual”) as Alex Wilder is a loud-and-proud nerd. Admittedly a bit of a loner, Alex spends much of his free-time playing video games, but deep down, what he wants most is to reunite his childhood group of friends.

Lyrica Okano

Lyrica Okano (“The Affair,” “Unforgettable”) Nico Minoru–tough, intelligent, and independent–embodies teenage angst. A budding “Wiccan,” Nico’s carefully crafted goth appearance isolates her from her peers and family, but maybe what she really needs is someone to talk to.

Virginia Gardner

Virginia Gardner (“Goat,” “Little Bitches”) as Karolina Dean, model-perfect exterior with a lot going on behind her professionally whitened smile, is burdened by the lofty expectations and responsibilities put upon her by her parents. Underneath her veneer of privilege and perfection, Karolina is experiencing a newfound eagerness to explore her identity and pursue her own desires.

Ariela Barer

Ariela Barer (“New Girl,” “One Day at a Time”) as Gert Yorkes is a purple-haired, bespectacled, contemporary riot grrrl. Never passing up a moment to stand on a soapbox, Gert sometimes wields her persona as a brash social justice warrior to mask her true feelings.

Greg Sulkin

Gregg Sulkin (“Faking It,” “Don’t Hang Up,” “Anti Social”) as Chase Stein is a lacrosse-playing, high school heartthrob. While many write him off as a dumb jock, Chase exhibits flashes of untapped brilliance in engineering, not unlike his wildly successful father’s.

Allegra Acosta

Allegra Acosta (“100 Things to do Before High School,” “Just Add Magic”) as Molly Hernandez, the youngest and most innocent member of her friend group, is known for her peppy positivity and a deep yearning to belong.

“Marvel’s Runaways” is executive produced by series showrunners/writers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage (“THE O.C.,” “GOSSIP GIRL”) along with Marvel’s Head of Television, Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Luke Cage,” “Marvel’s Iron Fist”) and Jim Chory (“Marvel’s Daredevil,” “Marvel’s Jessica Jones.”) Fake Empire’s Lis Rowinski will produce as well.   Marvel’s Runaways is a co-production with ABC Signature Studios.
