FX has released a new teaser trailer for X-Men spin-off series Legion, which features some spectacular drooling action. The show has been created for TV by Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley and everyone involved has gone to lengths to emphasise not to expect a weekly TV version of the X-Men movies. If anything, this trailer makes us think we’re going the X-Men’s answer to the Preacher TV series. Odd, it seems, is in. Oh, and even though neither of them say anything we’re already loving Dan Stevens as David Haller and Aubrey Plaza as Lenny.
In case you didn’t know, Legion is based on the comic book character David Haller who’s the illegitimate son of Professor X. He has multiple personality disorders and each of those personalities has a different mutant power. Quite how much of that will translate into the show is unclear, but it seems like Hawley is giving the character a unique spin.
