    Ohhh, my interest in Legion just dropped like an Acme anvil. Embrace the canon, man.

    Judging from the notion that powered beings not being common knowledge, maybe they're intending to place Legion in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

    Which would be a pretty damn HUGE progression for the MCU, if that were the case.

    Hellfire is the one series I was interested in, but now I'm not sure. Not cause of the showrunners, but because of no ties to the films.

    Hellfire is a separate continuity too?

    Not yet confirmed since that show is still a year away and the developers have another show to work on right at this very moment. I just lumped Legion and Hellfire Club together as being like Gotham because Legion is in a "parallel universe" taking place a few years back in time and Hellfire Club is a period piece. For all I know that one may be more like Agent Carter.

    2/18: Jeremie Harris joins "Legion," as Ptonomy - "an outsider by nature, stand-offish and sardonic who is a former child prodigy who feels trapped in the past."

    2/22: Amber Midthunder joins cast of Legion as Kerry, as "a woman of action with a childlike sense of wonder. A true savant, Kerry has lived a sheltered, but never dull life."

    And production on the pilot starts in March.

    3/1: Now Katie Aselton from FX's "The League" joins Legion as "Amy."

    5/10: Now Singer seems to be implying they will be connected to movies.

    5/27: Interview with Hawley about Legion.

    5/31: Legion has been ordered to series by FX for an 8 episode first season in early 2017.

    6/2: Another Hawley interview. Don't expect any X-Men or the world to know about mutants. >_<

    7/1: Kinberg says Legion is as radically different from the movies as Deadpool was.

    I don't understand Legion at all if they want it to be it's own thing why bother to even make an adaption which requires giving money to Marvel.

    8/25: He also teased there's a 2nd series still in the works.
    9/9: New Legion teaser


    9/13: Legion panel at NYCC will be October 9, 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm at the Hammerstein Ballroom.
    10/9: Jemaine Clement joined cast for a multiple episode arc.

    Summary of Legion panel. Lot of dancing around continuity questions.

    10/10: New poster released.

    In other words, there is no set "continuity" for Legion yet. Mainly to give Noah Hawley more leeway to do whatever he wants, and then figure it out later.

    I was so uninterested in this show but each preview has looked very good.
