Although Fox’s mutant movies do not have a working relationship with Marvel per se, they do have a partnership on the TV level. Next month, FX and Marvel Television will be releasing Legion, and based on the previews, the anticipation is high for that show. For a while, there was some buzz going around about a second show that would be produced by director Bryan Singer (X-Men, X2, X-Men: Days of Future Past, X-Men: Apocalypse) being developed for quite some time. It looks like that show is coming to fruition.

It has been confirmed that Fox has ordered a pilot for the currently Untitled X-Men TV Show. Matt Nix (Burn Notice) will be the showrunner for the upcoming series. The series will focus on two parents who are forced to go on the run with their mutant child to avoid government agents. There will be an “underground network” (probably the Morlocks) for mutants they will utilize to stay secret and to fight back. There are also rumors that the Sentinels will be on the show as well. The show will be in the same shared universe as the X-Men films.

In addition to Nix and Singer, Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg, Jim Chory, and Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb will be producing the television show. If the pilot is picked up, this show will join Gotham and Lucifer as one of Fox’s comic book TV shows (and their first Marvel TV show).
