FX Networks reveals release date for the X-Men related Marvel series, LEGION, plus we have the new Legion trailer and four TV Spots!
A new trailer and four promos for the FX Networks series Legion were recently released and although each of the promos give bits of footage on the anticipated Noah Hawley run series, the trailer gives a much better idea of the what’s to come. I have to say it’s quite schizophrenic.
Legion will supposedly take place not in the X-Men universe we’ve seen in the movie theaters, but in a parallel universe. This would be the explanation for those wanting to see crossovers from the characters in the movies to the characters in the TV series.
Here’s what FX Networks president John Landgraf said about this parallel universe format:
“The series Legion takes place in a parallel universe in which the U.S. government is in the early days of being aware that something called mutants exist, but the public does not,” he said in January. “I wouldn’t foresee characters moving back and forth because they really are parallel universes.”
From the looks of the trailers and the promos, it looks good despite the fact of no crossovers, and we hope it goes above our expectations of such a unique perspective of life as a mutant
Legion will premiere sometime in February 2017 on the FX Network. The series stars Dan Stevens (Disney’s Beauty and the Beast) as David Haller, the son of mutant professor and leader of the X-Men, Charles Xavier. Those also appearing on the show are Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation), Jean Smart (Fargo), Katie Aselton (The Gift), Rachel Keller (Fargo), and Bill Irwin (Sleepy Hollow).
