Gotham’s Natalie Alyn Lind set for FOX’s new X-Men TV series

March 2nd, 2017 by Marc Comments

Looks like another Gotham star has jumped from DC to Marvel. Sort of. A few days ago we learned that Jamie Chung was set for FOX’s new X-Men and now it seems that Natalie Alyn Lind is headed there too.

Lind plays Silver St Cloud in Gotham and has nabbed a series regular role in the X-Men series along with True Blood’s Stephen Moyer and Blair Redford.

The series will focus on “two ordinary parents who discover their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.”

Lind will play one of the children, Laurnen, who is described as “smart, pretty, popular, organized and already ahead on her college applications, she is the model of a perfect kid.”

True Blood’s Moyer will play her father, Reed, “an ambitious attorney trying to balance the demands of his job at the DA’s office with his family responsibilities. Chung will play Blink, based on the X-Men character with powers of teleportation. Redford will play another mutant, Sam, the strong-headed leader of the underground network.”

It looks like FOX are getting this series filled up pretty quickly, so we’d imagine more news on when the Bryan Singer directed pilot will land will be forthcoming.

Are you looking forward to it? Let us know…

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
