After 17 years and 10 movies, it makes perfect sense that the X-Men are finally heading to live-action television. It would be unfair to say that the cinematic potential for these characters have been exhausted (the possibilities are infinite and Logan looks great!), but X-Men: Apocalypse made it very clear that it’s time to shake things up and break away from the formula. A shift in mediums may be just what the professor ordered.
So I’m intrigued by the new X-Men TV show that Fox is working on at the moment and Bryan Singer, who helmed four of the X-Men movies and will direct the pilot, has started chatting about it.

UPDATE: Fox has announced that Bryan Singer, the director of X-Men, X2, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and X-Men: Apocalypse will helm the pilot.
FX’s upcoming Legion may not be the only X-Men-related show we’ll see in the near future. Fox has officially ordered a pilot for the X-Men television series from executive producer and Burn Notice creator, Matt Nix that was announced last year. Based on what Laura Shuler Donner has previously shared about Nix’s show, the story takes place in a world where people are well aware of mutants. Not only do they know they exist, most people hate them, as they typically do in the movies.
Below, learn more about the X-Men TV show.

Normally, when a studio offers us the chance to preview footage from an upcoming film, we’re treated to a handful of clips. In the case of James Mangold‘s Logan, we saw the entire first act — perhaps 30 or 40 minutes of footage. Such a move speaks to 20th Century Fox’s faith in the film, touted as Hugh Jackman‘s very last performance of Wolverine after 17 years. And based on what we saw, that confidence is well placed.
Mangold’s Logan feels unlike any superhero movie in recent movie, and yet its gritty Western vibe feels perfectly suited to Jackman’s world-weary take on the character. If this really is the last time we’ll see his Wolverine, it seems like a fitting end to his tenure. Read our Logan footage review below.
