Fox, which along with FX is owned by parent company 21st Century Fox, has ordered a pilot set within the X-Men universe. While little information is known about the untitled pilot, it will center on two human parents who discover that their children are mutants and the resulting fallout.
“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,” Variety states.
It would probably align closely with Legion, which is set in the X-Men universe but isn’t much of a factor in the films—at least not yet. However, the possibility is always there, particularly given X-Men’s inconsistent timelines and alternate universes. X-Men franchise movie director Brian Singer will direct the pilot episode.
“With the X-Men comics, there are a lot of alt universes, so that has allowed me some leeway,” Legion creator Noah Hawley told Variety. “And obviously it’s a sort of origin story for David [Haller, played by Stevens], but none of the other characters that I’ve surrounded him with are from the comics. It’s sort of an invented world.”
