Fox working on X-Men TV show

Throughout the recent bout of comic heroes heading to the small screen (Green Arrow, Agents of SHIELD, Gotham, The Flash, Constantine - to name but a few) one group of lyrca-clad monoliths have remained strangely untouched. Until now. 

Word comes from a source at Bleeding Cool (who also spilled the proverbials on a new, confirmed Supergirl series) that Fox is currently working on an X-Men live-action TV series. And by working, we mean they're in "deep development", which we assume means they're doing more than just batting the idea around a whiteboard. 

Official details are yet to emerge, but another well-connected source has since declared that he's aware of the premise of the show. Shawn Madden of Eat Geek Play says it’s based on Peter David’s X-Factor series - which has nothing to do with digging up undiscovered singers, but follows the Mutant Civil Rights Task Force in their work to track down anti-mutant hate groups. It's thought that the show would centre on Jamie Madrox, the mutant with self-replicating abilities, who appeared briefly in The Last Stand played by Eric Dane.

 

 

So, a mini-series that doesn't focus on the main stars of the X-Men franchise, with a slant toward detective show sleuthing? If it worked for Lois & Clark, Gotham and - on a spin-off not - Angel, it could work for Xavier's school for gifted youngsters.
