The hype is definitely growing around FX’s Legion. Not long ago the information about it was slim, but as the premiere date approaches and new details are revealed, the new show’s potential is seen, and I for one am counting the days to see it.
It’s not only the fact that the show is a collaboration between Marvel and FX, but the premise of having a supposed future villain deconstructed, and while the show is a collaboration, it exists in its own universe, meaning it has lot of freedom to create new stories and also a more characters to play with.
If you haven’t seen the previous trailers you can catch the latest promo that explains both the situation at hand and the tone of the series, basically David Heller (a.k.a. Legion) has been told that he’s sick when in fact he might be one the most powerful beings and ‘the key’.
The tone of the show is quite intriguing, while there are definitely lighter comedy touches around, it also seems to have a profound ‘what’s real and what’s not’ feel to it.
So what do you think about Legion? Will you be tuning in when the show premiers? Sound off in the comments below.
