The Gifted: “eXploited” Review

The Gifted’s fall finale, "eXploited,” delivered a game-changing episode full of strong emotional beats and devastating twists, serving up another excellent episode that put its best foot forward in every scene.

Warning: full spoilers ahead!

Even if you were familiar with the comics and knew Esme was a bad apple, nothing could prepare you for seeing what she did at this end of this episode. After manipulating everyone in the mutant underground to orchestrate a prisoner breakout, she demonstrated just how powerful her telepathy is, making the entire convoy of Sentinel Services officers turn their weapons on each other and themselves. The entire mutant underground can barely pull off a prisoner transport attack yet Esme did this one all by herself. This has to be the single most sickening, brutal display of mutant power seen in live-action, both on TV and in the movies. Not even Magneto went this far.

All the Marvel Characters Disney Could Get From Fox

If the rumors are to be believed (and at this point it seems like a safe bet), Disney is about to purchase 21st Century Fox for a whole lot of money. And while that means a lot of things for a whole host of Fox franchises, for many Marvel fans, the only thing that matters is that the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be gaining some key new characters.

From Wolverine to Deadpool to Doctor Doom, here are the iconic Marvel characters you can expect to see make their MCU debut if a deal goes down between Fox and Disney...

In related news, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige recently emphasized that Phase 4 of the MCU will be a significant departure from the prior films. "22 movies in, and we've got another 20 movies on the docket that are completely different from anything that's come before—intentionally," he told Vanity Fair.
