Marvel Entertainment And Fox Order ‘Legion’ & ‘HellFire Series’

It was announced today that FOX has ordered a pilot episode for the Marvel Comic property Legion, and is also developing an action/adventure series in the 1960’s called Hellfire. The second series will focus on an agent who discovers a young powerful woman working with the secret organization called “The Hellfire Club.”

We are thrilled to partner with Marvel to bring this world to television and build upon the vibrant mythology that has captivated fans for years” Said Fox Broadcasting President, David Madden. “These powerful and dynamic characters are complicated and larger than-life, the pace and visual imagination are unrelenting, and the story takes place during one of the most explosive eras in recent history. We’re so looking forward to working with this incredibly talented team.

Now on to Legion. Noah Hawley (Fargo) is writing and executive producing the pilot. The series focuses on the anti-hero David Haller who, in the comics, is the son of Professor Xavier. However, it’s unlikely that he will appear. So far, Fox has two Marvel shows in development but it’s unclear if they will be connected to the X-Men film universe.
