Is this Tim Burton channeling X-Men?

Is this Tim Burton channeling X-Men?

When Jake discovers Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, he finds a secluded hiding place for children with wonderful powers.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children was the debut children’s novel by American author Ransom Riggs. Published in 2011, it made the New York Times Bestseller list and Riggs has since written two sequels.

Director Tim Burton, famous for films such as Batman, Beetlejuice, Sleepy Hollow and most recently Big Eyes has bought the story to life for the big screen. After watching the trailer, it definitely has that gothic vibe that Burton is famous for. Also, I can’t help thinking of this as an alternate X-Men!
