The first months of the year may be a dismal time for movies, but it’s a very good time for television. Today we’ve got new promos for two of this winter’s most highly anticipated series: The CW’s Riverdale, which I like to refer to as “Sexy Archie,” and FX’s Legion, which I suppose you could refer to as “Sexy X-Men” depending on your feelings about Dan Stevens. See both of them below. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Legion is a new show from FX that features ties to the X-Men universe, but more importantly, it’s the latest show from Fargo creator, Noah Hawley. The series stars Dan Stevens (The Guest) as David Haller, son of Professor Charles Xavier in the comics. Whether the series spends much time on their connection, we’ll have to wait and see, but Hawley has said before it’ll likely be acknowledged. Based on the footage we’ve seen so far, though, this series doesn’t need any obvious connections to the X-Men universe to get us interested.
Below, watch the Legion promos.

Stories about folks with superpowers have become so ubiquitous that it’s easy to forget how bonkers the entire concept is. If you pause to think about it, it’d be completely bizarre for a boy in Queens to gain spider senses. It’d be insane for an actual, living alien baby to crash down in Kansas. And so on, and so forth. So it’s nice to see Legion is injecting some much-needed weirdness back into the genre.
A spinoff of Fox’s X-Men franchise, the FX drama centers on a young man named David Haller (Dan Stevens), who’s spent much of his life going in and out of psychiatric hospitals to treat what he believes is schizophrenia. But something happens, and he starts to wonder if the voices he’s been hearing in his head might be real after all. Comics fans will know that in the books, David is the son of Professor X and that David is himself a mutant with very interesting powers. But we’ll all have to wait and see how things pan out for the small-screen version of the character. Watch the Legion trailer below.
