This was kind of cool. Was browsing and looking through the XMenTAS Twitter and saw that awhile ago they'd shared something Legion related. Someone went and made an intro for Legion using the theme to the '92 X-Men animated series:

I haven't been this impressed by an actress since Tatiana Maslany in Orphan Black. Aubrey's killing it.

As expected, FX will be bringing Legion to SDCC once again with Hawley, Stevens and others slated to attend. We will probably get our first tidbits on S2, now that Fargo S3 has finished airing.

July 20th. Hope that Plaza is there among the cast. She was, for my money, the standout of the season.

In some bummer news, Legion came up empty in Emmy noms this year. But Carrie Coon wasn't nominated either, so there were a lot of snubs this year either way. (Not to mention there's just too much good TV out there)

Not surprised at Legion getting nothing, though still feel at the VERY least, Aubrey Plaza should've gotten a nod. But maybe over time and with a growing audience, it could win something or at least a nod. After all, Game of Thrones' first run got nods, but only one win with Peter Dinklage, back when it could still be construed as niche or fantasy. Now it's a juggernaut. Well, not THIS year, but in general, yes.

Hopefully that happens for Legion. Or at the very least something like Golden Globes or Critics Choice Awards.

Part of the problem is that there is just too much quality TV out there. But there's also popularity, prestige, and bias that factor in, as they do with every award show. It's why some shows get consistently nominated (and win) every year.

Just like Mangold showed us the first page of Logan, Hawley's now shown us a page of Legion S2! Can't wait to see Jemaine and Aubrey together.

Not quite burn it all down as if Tatiana Maslany got snubbed again (Orphan Black is not eligible this year). But it is still bs.

So Legion's Comic Con panel is today. Schedules have it listed for 5-6 pm, which I'm assuming is going by West Coast time.

Wonder Woman actor Saïd Taghmaoui has been cast to play the role of Amahl Farouk on Legion, the comic book drama from FX and Fargo creator Noah Hawley, based on an obscure but vibrant corner of Marvel's X-Men universe. The news was announced at the show's official Comic-Con panel.

FX describes Farouk as a "villain with a thousand faces. In his real form, he is always nattily dressed. Dapper with a thin Clark Gable style mustache. His eyes forever hidden behind a pair of ornate sunglasses. He was hip long before there was such an idea. He can seductively hold court on any topic and in any language, but his true passion lies in the singular timeless notion of power and amassing as much of it as possible."

"It is rumored he is the spawn of the first nightmare, which is fitting because fear is his weapon of choice in exposing weakness in others. To Farouk, fear equals weakness and he fears nothing. Which is why he takes such delight in seeing others squirm — a reminder he is more powerful than them."

Although Taghmaoui is new to Legion, Farouk is very much a known quantity. He has already appeared numerous times on the show, albeit with different names (like "Lenny") and faces (like "Aubrey Plaza"). He's alternately known as the Shadow King, one of the most powerful foes in the X-Men comics, and certainly one of the more elaborate villains from Marvel's mutant stable ever adapted for live-action.

Still being coy on whether Professor X will appear, though Stevens DID bring up that he talked to Patrick Stewart about it. So we'll see indeed.

Awesome seeing Said cast as Amahl Farouk. Can't wait to see him interact with Aubrey and Jemaine.

Okay, Hawley apparently said he's working on something Doctor Doom related?

Now THAT is fascinating right there if it comes to fruition.

Well, hopefully Kinberg delivers something. Though in a perfect world, I'd want Hawley to do an X-Men film since his take on David and the Shadow King within him is all too similar to Jean wrestling with the Phoenix.

I'd prefer him doing an X-Men film, but this has my attention. Legion is just too good.

Honestly, after Legion, Hawley should've been on the short list to at least write or direct an X-Men film, but with his involvement in Legion and now this, I still think he could be in the cards.

I honestly wish Fox would just give him the keys to the entire Fox/Marvel-verse at this point.

Is this his test? Not just taking on a failed franchise, but getting Doom right after previous attempts?
