X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer says that legendary Marvel Comics writer Stan Lee will appear in the first episode of Fox‘s upcoming series Gifted.

Outside of the 20th Century Fox film franchise, Singer has directed such movies as Superman Returns, Valkyrie, and Jack the Giant Slayer.

It is unknown what Lee’s exact role in the planned TV series is or if he will continue making such appearances in the program’s future. Previously, he appeared in small roles in the original X-Men film as well as Apocalypse.

The Gifted series stars Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker, Natalie Alyn Lind, Percy Hynes White, Sean Teale, Blair Redford, with Jamie Chung as the mutant Blink, and Natalie Alyn Lind as the mutant Polaris.

Produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Marvel Television, the series will focus on two ordinary parents (Moyer and Acker) 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.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
