Details have surfaced about the upcoming Fox X-Men series The Gifted that the pilot episode may go back to World War II era. This news comes from casting information calling out for soldier roles in the SS, the Nazi paramilitary group.
The Gifted takes place in a time when Sentinels are part of a anti-mutant government are it's main concern, it is unlikely yet not confirmed to say that Nazi Germany won't be it's primary setting. Though there has been one character confirmed in the cast that may provide connection to that era and that is Emma Dumont play as Lorna Dane, the nutam mistress of magnatism known as Polaris. Polaris is daughter to Magneto at least in the comics and Magneto has a past back in World War II.
