“Look at me. I know what I am.”
“And what’s that?”
While the X-Men comics and movies have come up with various metaphors for being a mutant, FX and Marvel Television’s new series Legion takes the tack of mental illness. The interesting part of this first trailer is that David Haller (Dan Stevens) is convinced he’s insane—something that the doctors around him encourage, even when his episodes manifest in psychic happenings right before their very eyes. That dichotomy makes the show look like a real mind-trip.
Legion will premiere sometime in early 2017.
