FX has released a new teaser spot for its forthcoming X-Men tie-in TV series, Legion.
Legion is the story of a troubled young man who may be more than human. It introduces the story of David Haller, who since he was a teenager, has struggled with mental illness. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. But after a strange encounter with a fellow patient, he’s confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees might be real.
The series will take audiences inside of the character’s fractured mind. David “Legion” Haller, played by Dan Stevens, is “a haunted man, trying to find his way back to sanity, but he’s getting tired and is about to give up when he meets the girl of his dreams,”
Legion will be produced by Bryan Singer, “[Legion is] part of the X-Men universe, but when you watch it, you wouldn’t have to label it, it could exist entirely on its own.”
Legion will premiere in early 2017.
