X-Men TV shows separate from movies

June 7th, 2017 by bash Comments

X-Men producer Hutch Parker has said that the mutant movie universe and the new and expanding TV version will not in any concrete way be connected.

Seventeen years after Fox’s franchise launched in 2000 with X-Men, the universe has now expanded in recent years into television with the launch of Legion and the forthcoming The Gifted.

Speaking to Screen Rant, Parker said: “[The TV series]’re more of their own thing. I think they’re designed really to, again, part of what I think has always been compelling about the X-Men Universe to me is, it is about individuals grappling with the degrees and ways in which they’re different from the society in which they live. That as an idea allows you, you can follow any one of countless characters in the universe and have a completely idiosyncratic experience, right?

“A completely unique story. I think what’s great about what they’ve been doing in TV is they’re finding those nooks and crannies and characters and new articulations or expressions of those issues and exploring them in a series format. So without being specifically tied, they’re another way in which the [X-Men] Universe is getting expanded.”

The Gifted will air this coming Autumn.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
