Fox Marvel Pilot Cast

Fox's Marvel Pilot Adds Reign Alum Sean Teale as New Mutant Eclipse

Marvel will be introducing (at least) one new mutant via its still-untitled, don’t-call-it-X-Men Fox pilot.

Sean Teale (Reign, Incorporated) has joined the drama as a never-before-seen mutant named Marcos Diaz (aka Eclipse), our sister site Deadline reports. A rebellious loner by nature, Eclipse has the power to “absorb and manipulate photons.”

The pilot, from writer Matt Nix (Burn Notice) and director Bryan Singer (the X-Men films), follows two non-mutant parents who learn that their children possess mutant abilities; the discovery leads them to join up with an underground network of mutants to keep their family safe from their anti-mutant government.

Teale joins previously announced cast members Stephen Moyer (True Blood) as Reed, the father of the aforementioned mutant children; Jamie Chung (Once Upon a Time) as Clarice Fong/Blink; and Blair Redford (The Lying Game) as Sam, the leader of the underground network.

    Good casting for the show. Can’t wait to see the cast photos of the cast as their characters.

    A genderbent and mutant-ised Monica Rambeau?

    Oh well. Hopefully, Monica will show up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe at some point.

    It’s already getting confusing between this one and the ABC one.
