In addition to the new trailer, which you can view above, the series has added actress Elena Satine as Dreamer, a mutant who has the ability to remove or implant memories in others. This will mark Satine’s second Marvel role, as she previously played the Asgardian Lorelei in two episodes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 1. Per ScreenRant, the casting announcement was made by showrunner Matt Nix during the Television Critics Association press tour.
Nix went on to express his excitement over bringing Dreamer — who goes by Beautiful Dreamer in the comics — into the series, citing her powers as “sexy.” “One of the things about her character is that’s a really sexy power that isn’t a gigantic power,” he said. “We aren’t blowing up a building with her… it doesn’t involve a six-week CG build.”

While it’s currently unknown just how many episodes Satine’s Dreamer will appear in, she will play a part in a love triangle between Dreamer, Thunderbird (Blair Redford) and an as-yet-unknown third party.
Developed by 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.
