The comic book X-Men is a great big world with many different facets, but seeing that world brought to life in the live action realm has only covered so much ground. The 10 X-Men movies so far have focused mostly on the team, the solo adventures of Wolverine, and one slightly off-kilter tale of everyone’s favourite Merc with the Mouth, but there’s a lot of nuance to the world of X-Men, a subtlety that can often be lost in big screen, blockbuster filmmaking. Good thing then that Legion is coming to fill that void, and this new look at the show will make you look forward to its premiere – now in the not too distant future – all the more.
FX, the future home of this TV spin-off of the X-Men movie franchise, released a new minute-long teaser for the series, which we now know is coming to a TV screen near you in February. The series stars Downtown Abbey’s Dan Stevens as David Haller, a young man with schizophrenia who comes to realize that there may be more to him than meets the eye, and it starts with the letter ‘M’. The show, which is created by Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley, co-stars Jean Smart as David’s unconventional psychiatrist, Katie Aselton as David’s older sister who has her own share of mental issues, and Aubrey Plaza as David’s friend Lenny who as lots of demons of her own to contend with.
Well that’s enough background, shall we get to the actual trailer:
Legion begins its eight episode first season on FX on February 8, 2017.
