Lauren Gallaway, Comic Book Resources; The Gifted’s Stephen Moyer Resolves a Mutants vs Vampires Debate
"Asked if The Gifted will address social issues — a direction X-Men films and comic books have long followed — like mutant registration, a mutant cure, or even mutant testing, Moyer replied in the affirmative. “I think it would be quite difficult to live in the 2017 that we’re living in and not comment on what’s going on in the world,” he said. “In the same way that True Blood dealt with disenfranchised, marginalized, otherness, one of the things that drew me to this was the idea that the kids in our story and the mutants who have become mutants have their genes activated by some kind of persecution, some kind of bullying or some moment of terror. There are certain aspects of the script that Matt [Nix] wrote over a year ago that have quite a prescient effect that will be quite interesting given the government that we’ve got.”"
