Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee assembles the cast of The Gifted in a photo from the set of the Fox television drama.
Posted on the Twitter account of the X-Men spinoff, the image was presumably taken in April, when Lee filmed his cameo for the Bryan Singer-directed pilot episode. As Singer noted at the time, it was the third cameo they've shot together, following 2000's X-Men and 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse.

Although Lee has appeared in more than live-action 30 films (and counting) based on Marvel Comics characters, his television cameos are relatively rare. the 1989 TV movie The Trial of the Incredible Hulk, and one episode each of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter. His presence of Marvel's Netflix dramas has been limited to that of a photograph of a New York City police officer.
Developed by Burn Notice creator Matt Nix, The Gifted follows two ordinary parents who discover their children possess extraordinary powers. Forced to go on the run from the government, they join an underground network of mutants and must fight for their survival.
Premiering Monday, Oct. 2, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, the joint production of Fox and Marvel Television stars Stephen Moyer as Reed Strucker, 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.
