Amy Acker Cast as Lead in 'X-Men' TV Show; Ken Leung Cast in 'Inhumans'

Okay guys, let’s settle in. This is a topic that isn't going away any time soon.

Marvel and Fox are in the middle of a bidding war, as they both attempt to gobble up as many promising actors as possible for appearances in their upcoming shows.

And okay, yes, technically, Marvel is also aiding Fox in building their new television show, but that’s beside the point. What matters is that these two new superhero shows are both, it seems, racing to announce as many new cast members as possible, as each one vies for the most publicity.

Well do you know what, Fox and Marvel? You can’t make us choose sides. We’re going to give identical coverage to both new casting announcements for your shows.

Fox has cast Amy Acker for their upcoming X-Men television show, which will take place with the existing X-Men cinematic universe, but will not feature any popular characters from the movies, and won’t be referenced in any subsequent film.

Acker is famous for roles in Angel, and Dollhouse, and previously appeared in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in a small role.

Acker is a capable actor and will be a credit to the X-Men television series, which will feature a group of superhumans who are feared by the majority of humans on Earth.

Marvel has cast Ken Leung for their upcoming Inhumans television show, which will take place with the existing Marvel cinematic universe, but will not feature any popular characters from the movies, and won’t be referenced in any subsequent film.

Leung is famous for roles in Lost, and The Force Awakens, and previously appeared in X-Men: The Last Stand in a guest role.

Leung is a capable actor and will be a credit to the Inhumans television series, which will feature a group of superhumans who are feared by the majority of humans on Earth.

There, now nobody can complain. You both got fair treatment.

Although it is fun to note that Leung is now going to be a regular in the Inhumans television show, having previously appeared in an X-Men movie, while Acker is now going to be a regular in the X-Men television show, having previously appeared in the MCU.

There’s just a wonderful symmetry surrounding that, which suggests that maybe someone in Marvel’s casting department mislabeled a couple of files.
