Two Amusing Promo Spots for the New X-Men Series LEGION
I'm actually really excited about the upcoming X-Men series Legion. It looks like it's going to be a lot of fun, and today we've got a couple of amusing new promo spots for you to enjoy.
The story for the series focuses on a character named David Haller, who has struggled with mental illness since he was a teenager. "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."
Haller also goes by the name Legion. He is the son of Gabrielle Haller and Charles Xavier in the comics, and he's a powerful mutant who is one of the founders of X-Men. What makes this character so unique and interesting is the fact that his mutant powers are controlled separately by his many different personalities.
I think this is one of the coolest characters in the Marvel universe, and it's great that he's getting his own series. I'm actually surprised it took the studio so long to actually bring this character to life.
Legion comes from Fargo creator Noah Hawley and stars Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Jean Smart, Aubrey Plaza, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, Katie Aselton, and Bill Irwin. The series is set to premiere in early 2017.
