It's not the first time Blink's been brought to live action-Fan Bingbing briefly played the character in X-Men: Days of Future Past's future-set scenes, where she was quickly killed off by the Sentinels.

Fox's "X-Men" TV pilot is taking shape, with Jamie Chung joining the cast as Blink, a mutant with the power to teleport. Clarice's naturally strong exuberance has taken a hit after a sudden and traumatic upheaval of her life. A mutant with the ability of teleportation, the Blink introduced in the series will be looking to find herself again as she adjusts to her new normal. Switched at Birth's Blair Redford was previously announced as Sam, the leader of an underground network of mutants.

With FX's Legion out there enthralling and confusing audiences from week to week, that other X-Men-related TV show is starting to pull itself together. In the film, Blink didn't end up doing so well in the bleak future, but since that was all undone by a time travelling Wolverine, that means the current X-Men universe has a version of the character running around, alive and well.

Fox's untitled X-Men show has Burn Notice's Matt Nix as showrunner, with long-time X-Men movie director Bryan Singer helming the pilot.

Jamie Chung is entering the Marvel universe. After they are forced to flee from a hostile government, the family join an underground mutant network in order to survive. If they start casting other Exiles characters like Morph, Nocturne, and Sunfire, we'll know this series is at least partially based on that comic series. Are there any particular iconic characters you'd like to see join Blink in the Fox pilot?
