Prominent X-Men Characters To Play Role In Fox TV Spin-Off

Matt Nix confirms that Fox‘s upcoming X-Men television series will feature some familiar faces from Marvel‘s famous team of mutants.

While it has already been confirmed that the show will take place in the same continuity as the 20th Century Fox film franchise, it was repeatedly stressed that the program will focus on its own unique story that is separate from the plot of the movies. That being said, people close to the project have explained that familiar elements from the films will appear, with the latest comments regarding said elements coming from Nix.

As a producer and writer on the program, Nix is in a unique position to confirm or deny what will happen in the show. He refrained from going into detail and repeated that the focus would not be on the X-Men, but explained that members of the team would still appear.


Pressed about which characters Marvel Comics fans might expect to see, Nix replied, “The only thing that I would say is that it’s a … some of those things are slightly up in the air, but the fact that it’s a question I can’t answer tells you something.” He then added, “Suffice it to say it’s a show that contains some characters that fans will be excited about. I can’t talk about specifics, but it’s not like there are no X-Men in it.”

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.
