Legion Headed to FX in Early 2017

While Agent Carter and Marvel’s Most Wanted have been canceled, next year will see at least one new Marvel character hit the small screen. An 8 episode season of the X-men spinoff Legion has been ordered by FX, and it will be produced as a joint effort between Fox and Marvel Studios. With showrunner Noah Hawley (Fargo) at the helm, Legion stars Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens as the title character, who in the comics is the illegitimate son of professor Charles Xavier. He’s a mutant with multiple personality disorder, and each personality has it’s own power. Longtime Marvel fans know he’s responsible for not one, but two Alternate realities, the Age of Apocalypse, and the Age of X. It remains to be seen how this is incorporated in the show. The status of Marvel and Fox’s other show, Hellfire, is up in the air as it’s two showrunners, Evan Katz and Manny Coto departed to work on 24 Legacy.



Legion and Hellfire Coming to TV

This past August, there were reports that Fox was interested in bringing a live action X-men series to TV. Today, we got details on two new series that are coming to TV thanks to a partnership between Fox and Marvel TV. Hellfire will be coming to Fox while Legion will be coming to FX with a pilot already being ordered. Both projects are executive produced by X-men movie director Bryan Singer, with Legion having Noah Hawley (Fargo) attached to it as head writer. Hellfire will take place during the late 60s and follow the exploits of the club of millionaire mutants that was introduced in X-men First class, and is features prominently in the comics. A special agent investigates the group after learning that a powerful woman is in charge of the group. Legion will tell the story of Charles Xavier’s illegitimate son, David Haller, a powerful mutant with schizophrenia. While there are obviously no details in the way of date, stars, timeslot, or even if these shows are in X-men movie continuity, this is certainly exciting news for fans of Marvel’s merry mutants. It’s even more surprising to see Marvel TV and Fox working together in spite of Fox’s stinginess over the X-men and Fantastic Four rights.



Man of Action Producing New Mega Man Animated Series for 2017

According to the website Deadline, a new Mega Man animated series in in the works from Man of Action, producers of shows such as Ben 10 and Ultimate Spider-Man. A 26-episode series is planned for 2017, although there are currently no details about what network it will air on or its release schedule. Although fans aren’t too fond of MOA’s current effort Ultimate Spider-Man, I personally enjoyed the show. It doesn’t take itself too seriously, and the animation would work quite well with Mega Man. Besides, it’s not like it can be any worse than Captain N’s green dwarf with a speech impediment, the Ruby-Spears series from the 90s, or the bat-guano-insane Brazilian comic. This is probably the closest we’ll get to a new game for now. Then again, there’s also Mighty Number 9, which is available for pre-sale on Steam.
