Legion on FX Promo, Trailer and Release Date
Legion Arriving in February 2017
Before Krypton and the DC Universe join FX, Legion will first bring mutant-kind to the network in February of 2017. Marvel Entertainment and FX Network made the joint announcement of the premiere date. The first season will last 8 episodes and follow the son of Charles Xavier, infamously known as Professor X. In the comics, David Haller is Legion, due to his multiple personalities manifesting with each new power he develops. One of the most powerful mutants to ever exist, it’s said he has over 2000 different personalities and growing. The son of Xavier is best known for creating an alternate timeline due to his misguided attempt at killing Magneto in the past, but accidentally kills his father. He creates a world without the hope Charles brought, where Magneto leads the X-Men against Apocalypse.
Who’s Your Daddy
When it was first announced a Legion series was being developed, many asked if it connected to Fox’s cinematic universe. At first, we were made to believe there would be no connection between the two mediums. However, after Marvel and Fox hammered out an agreement to bring Legion to FX, it was confirmed Legion would be known as the son of Professor Charles Xavier. With the possible demise of Xavier in Logan from a previous article, Haller could carry the torch for the Professor. The series follows David Haller coping with multiple personalities only to realize what makes him crazy might be real.
Legion will debut on FX in February 2017 and is produced by FX Productions and Marvel Television
Legion follows the story of David Haller, a troubled young man who may be more than human. Since he was a teenager, David has struggled with mental illness. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. But after a strange encounter with a fellow patient, he’s confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees might be real.
