Legion Trailer: FX's Marvel Series Takes Look at 'Most Powerful Mutant Ever'

What the X, man?!

The first trailer for FX’s first Marvel series, Legion, finds Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) living an X-traordinarily trippy existence — as someone who may be “the most powerful mutant ever.”

Legion follows David Haller, a troubled young man who may be more than human. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, he 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 visions might be real.

Exec-produced by Fargo‘s Noah Hawley and set to debut in 2017, the series also stars Rachel Keller (Fargo), Jean Smart (Fargo), Katie Aselton (Casual), Jeremie Harris and Amber Midthunder (Banshee), with appearances by Bill Irwin (SVU) and Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation).

    Looks like a mix of Crazy Ex Girlfriend and Inception,lol.

    How come I can watch this video on another site, but on this site it says that it’s not available in my country (Australia). Also, why do networks geo-block trailers? It’s 2016. Let everyone see your trailer to build up the hype around the world. The idea of geo-borders for media is dying. Why keep holding onto to this antiquated notion?

    What the heck happened to Matthew Crawley! He became younger? I miss Matthew and Downton Abbey.

    I’m getting Utopia vibes from the trailer. I guess its not going to be your typical superhero show. Hopefully it’s good.

    The trailer for the show looks good, crazy, and funny. Really looking forward to check out the show next year!

    David Haller was the son of Gabrielle Haller, Isreali ambassador, and Prof. Xavier of the X-Men, who didn’t know he had fathered a son. Haller was also responsible for bringing about the Age of Apocalypse in the comic books, a way superior narrative compared to the movie. Hopefully, this may be an attempt to bring the MCU stray narratives together.

    I hope this does well. It looks awesome but it’s based on a really obscure Marvel character and the premise seems like a hard sell. They should keep selling it on the auspices of Hawley and Fargo.
