Jamie Chung to Play Blink in Fox's Marvel Pilot From Bryan Singer

The untitled X-Men show just cast actress Jamie Chung as the mutant Blink, a fairly minor character in the Marvel Universe. Blink's real name is Clarice Fong (Ferguson in the comics), and she has the ability to teleport great distances, and can also focus her powers into blade-like energy.

Are there any particular iconic characters you'd like to see join Blink in the Fox pilot?

Trump administration directs Border Patrol, ICE to expand deportations
The Department of Homeland Security has not denied the existence of the memos but has not provided further details. Immigrant advocate and attorney Patrick Young says the new deportation guidelines are frightening and unnecessary.

Blair Redford (Switched At Birth) has also been cast as the mutant Sam, the strong-headed leader of the underground network, though specifics are presently unknown.

Bryan Singer will direct the pilot of the show and Matt Nix will write the script. The character slowly returns to her "lively" and "exuberant" ways as she adjusts "to the new people and places that are suddenly 'home'". Blink had a small role in "X-Men: Days of Future Past", where she was played by Chinese actress Fan Bingbing. Clarice's naturally strong exuberance has taken a hit after a sudden and traumatic upheaval of her life.

Unlike the latter however, the former only has the limited functionality of taking photos and recording 10-second video clips. There are three colors available - Coral, Black, and Teal, and each unit comes with a charging case and cable.

Chung appeared as Mulan on ABC's Once Upon a Time and is set to portray a recurring role on the upcoming season of Casual in Hulu. While hiding from the government, the family joins an underground network of mutants in the fight for survival. This would allow alternate versions of popular X-Men characters-maybe played by other actors-who aren't too big to do a TV show.

Yet, despite her awesome powers, Blink was only present in the film's backdrop, becoming a casualty of the futuristic war after only uttering one line (two if you watch the Rogue Cut).

Fox ordered the pilot in January, with Nix to serve as writer and showrunner, and executive produce alongside Singer and X-Men: Apocalypse producer Simon Kinberg.
