LE­GION

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Red Alert -

If prizes were handed out for the weird­est take on a su­per­hero fran­chise at Comic-Con, they’d al­most def­i­nitely go to Le­gion. Based around Charles Xavier’s epony­mous mu­tant son, it’s been adapted for TV by Noah Haw­ley (the brains be­hind the Fargo TV se­ries), and the trailer is un­like any­thing pre­vi­ously spawned from a Mar­vel fran­chise – no won­der this is re­port­edly to­tally sep­a­rate from the X-Men movie uni­verse. Star­ring Down­ton Abbey’s Dan Stevens and Parks And Re­cre­ation’s Aubrey Plaza, it’s a jit­tery, sur­real trip into the psy­che of a pow­er­ful mu­tant with mul­ti­ple per­son­al­i­ties. We can’t wait to see how it turns out when it comes to Fox in the new year.

Stevens and Plaza: this year’s mu­tants. Dan Stevens isn’t in Down­ton Abbey any more.
