A new viral site for Fox’s X-Men drama The Gifted allows visitors to click a button to test whether they have the X-gene. However, after the button is clicked, a resistance video plays starring one of the members of the mutant underground, urging you not to trust Sentinel Services.
Each resistance video is shot with a handheld camera and includes the mutant “M” symbol, both in the background and flashing over the image. Before the videos conclude, the hashtag #MutantsUnite is displayed to urge mutants to band together against the U.S. government agency.
Other takeaways are a list of safety risks from “flares,” “frightening episodes” when the mutant gene manifests; signs and symptoms to look out for; facts from the Department of Mutant Affairs; and the benefits of getting tested.
Airing Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT this fall on Fox, The Gifted also stars Amy Acker as Caitlin Strucker, Sean Teale as Marcos Diaz/Eclipse, Coby Bell as Jace Turner, Emma Dumont cast as Lorna Dane/Polaris, Jamie Chung as Blink/Clarice Fong and Blair Redford as John Proudstar/Thunderbird, Natalie Alyn Lind as Lauren Strucker and Percy Hynes White as Andy Strucker.
