Oh good. I'm already worried about oversaturation with thirteen different Marvel shows across ABC, Freeform, Fox, Netflix, Hulu, and FX. DC already has eleven shows currently or soon-to-be on the air. I'm concerned the balloon will pop and people will be tired of all these superhero shows, let alone the movies.
At least, we know the X-Men shows wouldn't be the reason for any superhero overload. Legion is great and I'm kind of iffy on the Gifted, but hopefully it's good. I'm just glad Lauren Shuler Donner and the others working on the mutant shows realize the market is already pretty full.

9/11:Garret Dillahunt joins The Gifted as Roderick Campbell, a mutant researcher under contract with Sentinel Services. His character is described as "Professorial, intense and intimidating," with "a morally dubious mission yet to be revealed." In the comics, he worked on Muir Island and found out an AU version of himself as a villain named Ahab who created mutant trackers. Hmm, so perhaps he has something do with those sentinel spider things in the trailer.
