FX’s X-Men Series ‘Legion’ Previews At NYCC

FX premiered the first half of the pilot for its upcoming series Legion at New York Comic Con, according to Variety.

Legion follows David Haller (Dan Stevens, The Guest), an extremely powerful mutant who has multiple personalities.

Executive Producer Noah Hawley (FX’s Fargo) discussed the origins of the series during a panel on Sunday:

FX released a teaser trailer during San Diego Comic-Con in July. It features Haller in a one-on-one session with The Interrogator (Hamish Linklater) inter-cut with various visions he has. Watch that video below.

The series is a Marvel TV and 20th Century Fox co-production. Fox owns the rights to X-Men/mutants, while Disney owns Marvel.

Aubrey Plaza, Rachel Keller, Katie Aselton, Jeremie Harris and Bill Irwin also star.

Legion is set to debut in 2017 on FX.
