New FX Promo Shows Off More of Legion’s Oddities

A new promo trailer has been shared for Legion; the upcoming X-Men spinoff series from Fargo showrunner, Noah Hawley. Worry not, it’s as strange as the first one.

Legion was announced back in July, with a surreal trailer overlooking protagonist David Haller engaged in everything from slowing time and manipulating fire, to grooving on down in a synchronised dance routine.

The upcoming FX series certainly seems to embrace the whackier side of the Marvel universe, as this new promo captures the central David Haller and friend Lenny watching a troubled fellow inmate drooling in the psychiatric hospital where the series is set. The original upload isn’t available to folks in the UK, but thanks to We Got This Covered, you can watch the promo in the header above.

In the Marvel comic books, Legion is the son of Charles Xavier, and according to a recent report on Comic Book, series producer Bryan Singer has confirmed that the series is part of the established X-Men universe. Fans unfamiliar with Legion’s comic-book background needn’t worry, however, as Singer also states that the series “could exist entirely on its own.” 

If that’s the case, might we expect Legion’s family history to be explored further?

Announced during this year’s SDCC, Legion follows protagonist David Haller, a conflicted man with possible mutant abilities. After a pivotal encounter with another patient, however, questions begin to arise surrounding the authenticity of his experiences, and David is suddenly forced to question whether his so-called ‘hallucinations’ may in fact be real.

Legion is set to premiere on FX in 2017, starring Dan Stevens, Aubrey Plaza, Jean Smart and Rachel Keller, while Katie AseltonBill Irwin and Amber Midthunder are also slated to appear.
