The reveal of the family’s name may suggest a connection to the larger Marvel universe, considering we’ve seen Hydra baddie Baron Strucker (Thomas Kretschmann) in The Winter Soldier and Age of Ultron. The reports do not mention this connection, but most fanboys and girls will make the leap anyway. Its all connected….

The series also stars Sean Teale as Eclipse a.k.a. Marcos Diaz; Jamie Chung as Blink a.k.a. Clarice Fong; Emma Dumont as Polaris a.k.a. Lorna Dane; Blair Redford as Thunderbird a.k.a. John Proudstar; and Coby Bell as Jace Turner.

The full trailer for Gifted will be released on May 15, 2017.
