Anticipation is still building for the first live-action X-Men series, Legion and the first poster for the series was released today.
Simple and honestly says a lot about main character, David Haller. Played by Dan Stevens, Haller is a mutant with schizophrenia and child of X-Men founder and leader, Professor Charles Xavier. The many voices Dan hears in his head all coming out at once in an exploding manner. Also might be due to the fact that Legion himself here is able to absorb anyone’s psyche as an alternate personality of his own and also inherent their superhuman abilities too should they have them. Though some powers are more dominant in him than others, such as telepathy (passed on from dear old dad himself), telekinesis, pyrokinesis, time travel, and reality warping.
The poster itself also looks to be an homage to the cover of an issue of Legion Quest, a mid ’90s six-issue X-Men crossover comic.
What do you think of the poster yourself? Is it cool? What are you expectations for Legion? Let us know in the comments below!
Legion is created by Fargo showrunner, Noah Hawley and also stars Rachel Keller, Jean Smart, Aubrey Plaza, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, Katie Aselton, and Bill Irwin and will premiere on FX February 8, 2017.
