For the first time, Marvel and Fox are actually cooperating to bring us two new X-Men TV series.
Nobody would thought this could happen, but it did. Marvel and Fox has finally landed a partnership deal to create two X-Men series, this means that the two companies will be settling their differences and will focus in providing some great Marvel series. This is not the first time Marvel has to make a partnership with a different company for their Marvel films and series, they also partnered with Sony (who still holds the Spider-Man and Fantastic Four movie license) to launch another Spider-Man reboot that will now be part of the massive Marvel Cinematic Universe.
However the new X-Men series will not be part of the MCU, but rather they will be part of the X-Men movie universe from Fox. First is Hellfire, which will be airing on Fox, and the other is Legion, where it will premiere on the FX Network.
Here are the details for the two series.
Set in the late 1960s, the series ? which will be produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Marvel Television, with 20th Century Fox handling the physical production ? follows a young Special Agent who learns that a power-hungry woman with extraordinary abilities is working with a clandestine society of millionaires ? known as ?The Hellfire Club? ? to take over the world.
FX Networks has ordered the pilot for Legion, the story of a troubled young man who may be more than human, it was announced today by Nick Grad and Eric Schrier, Presidents of Original Programming, FX Networks and FX Productions. The story focuses on David Haller, who was diagnosed schizophrenic, but he then discovers that he is actually a mutant, in the comics, he is actually Professor Xavier?s long lost son.
Expect to learn more on the two new series soon as we get more update about them.
