The X-Men Universe gets bigger as the franchise gets its own spin-off in the form of an X-Men TV series, particularly in a new storyline for in Legion. Fox previously announced that Legion is already in the works.
Legion is a family story. The parents need to run from the authorities upon learning that their children have mutant powers. It looks like a great storyline because it can introduce new characters along the way. That is particularly when the family gets immersed in the mutant community.
So who are the characters fans should expect in the upcoming Legion? There are surely a lot of Marvel comics characters that viewers would love to see in the small screen. It is safe to say that choosing the characters to include in Legion could be make or break for the project.
FX Legion Cast
A publication stated that Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters can be the starting point of the X-Men TV series. Fans are hoping that Patrick Stewart or James MacAvoy will at least make a cameo appearance. If one of these actors will appear in Legion, it will surely boost its ratings.
Namor might also be part of the cast. His abilities are flying and breathing under water. Just like Cyclops for Wolverine, Namor can be a good buddy of a reformed Sabretooth. Namor being part of the upcoming television series is not officially confirmed yet.
So far, confirmed Legion cast include Mackenzie Gray as The Eye, Scott Lawrence as Dr. Poole and Katie Aselton as Amy Haller. Hamish Linklater, Bradd Mann, Jeremie Harris, Bill Irwin, Rachel Keller, Alex Mulgrew and Amber Midthunder are also part of the cast, among others.
