Review for the first episode of Legion.
More reviews are in and they're all highly positive. Sounds like FX has a hit on their hands.
As @Greg91 posted elsewhere, Nix's TV show starts production in Dallas and pilot to to shoot next month on the 13th.
Nice. I've seen a few reviews online. Here, here, and here. All very positive.
Yeah, a lot of people seemed to be ignoring this because it wasn't a fan-requested show and it doesn't seem to have any superheroes like Arrow and the Flash or plenty of action like Gotham and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
However, it seems to be more of a think-piece, akin to how Logan is being described and I'm all for that over more explosions. The costumed superhero action is great but sometimes you need something different and more grounded.
I'm curious what this series will be about and if it, Legion, the new X-Men comics in April and the recently rumored new X-Men animated series are pointing towards a return of the mutant heroes.
These two shows are definitely going to help the X-verse in the long run and tell more personal stories like the Deadpool and Wolverine solo movies have done. Legion - obviously more cerebral - and seems to like that vein of the untrustworthy point of view stories whereas this Nix show, more about normal people thrust into that world of mutants when their child manifests a power. Probably will be set in the new present that Deadpool is in. Though the question is why are they on the run, imo. Is it the government or some shady group like what we saw in DP?
First Casting News
My first impression was if he's a name character, I'd guess Thunderbird or Forge.
I wonder if there's any kind of "off-limits" characters for these productions given the only casual or tentative connection they have to the movie continuity, similar to Marvel Studios and the other MCU productions ?
Yeah, that's what I figure like Warpath is off limits maybe so a compromise would be to use his brother Thunderbird, for example. But half-serious, it could be a "Deadpool situation."
Sunspot was in Apocalypse yet he is going to be in New Mutants.
Days of Future Past but true, because of the whole timeline reset, Warpath could be this character, too.
Legion did pretty well on FX, scoring a respectably high 0.7 (or 0.69) within the 18-49 demo and a total of 1,622,000 Nielson viewers. The only program that top it was ESPN’s NBA Basketball coverage (0.8 with 1, 958,000 viewers).
So far, it's doing a little bit better than Tom Hardy's Taboo (0.6) and Noah Hawley's critical hit Fargo (0.8 rating with 2.7 million viewers), though some thought that it would hit American Crime Story: The People v O.J Simpson's rare levels of cable ratings (2.0 rating with 5 million viewers, premiere wise) because of its Super Bowl promotions scattered about.
I'd assume if any of the actors have done tv work and are available, they could cameo on the show.
If Shawn can't make it, there's always Aaron Ashmore.
That's still within the realm of movies and he's also being de-aged.
Featurette on Legion's Summerland released.
Jamie Chung (Gotham, Once Upon a Time) has been cast as Blink for Fox' X-Men pilot.
Interesting. Would be fitting if that previous actor is going to be Warpath after all.
I'm half-expecting Bishop to turn up next .
And now I'm pretty interested in this show. From Gotham to Big Hero 6, Jamie Chung is often in pretty cool comic book roles or TV shows.
Stephen Moyer cast in Nix series as "Reed who is an ambitious attorney trying to balance the demands of his job at the DA’s office with his responsibilities to his family."
