Noah Hawley’s FX X-Men drama Legion might have skipped out on Comic-Con 2016 itself, but when better to drop a first look? Up is down, cats and dogs are living together, and everything seems bonkers insane in the first full Legion trailer, complete with dance number!
Well, even the strongest may not have survived X-Men: Apocalypse’s meager opening weekend, but Marvel’s mutants will officially have a whole new proving ground on TV. FX has picked up Noah Hawley’s Legion for its first season, debuting a first look at Dan Stevens in the title role.
The reception of this weekend’s X-Men: Apocalypse will surely have a hand in deciding the future of the franchise, but leave it to TV to explore the decidedly weirder corners of the X-universe. Take FX’s Noah Hawley-drawn Legion, which the Fargo showrunner claims will deliver “something whimsical and imaginative and unexpected,” rather than punching and kicking.
I'm a huge Daria fan. And while I hope there never actually is a live action adaptation of the series (that wouldn't work for a variety of reasons), if it were to happen, Aubrey Plaza would likely be the popular choice to play the prototypical intelligent, sarcastic '90s teen. This wasn't lost on the folks at College Humor, who got Plaza to portray the titular character in a fake trailer for a Daria film that would take place 10 years after the "Is It College Yet?" finale. Daria heads back to Lawndale for her high school reunion, teaming up with best friend Jane and seeing her sister Quinn, her parents Jake and Helen, ex-boyfriend Tom and the rest. Check out the video below to see if it's anything like the future you pictured for the crew.
Following last week's announcement of Legend of Korra: Enhanced Experience, the free app that gives fans of the show an early look at the upcoming season, and the reveal of some of the upcoming characters for Book Two (or season two), Nickelodeon has now revealed some of the series new voice actors.
