The X-Men spinoff series Legion is set to premiere on FX in early 2017. But the people over at Marvel appear to be feeling generous, giving us an advance look with two new clips.
We talked about Dan Stevens‘ role in the series in earlier Anglo posts. But if you need a refresher, here’s the gist of it: Stevens portrays David Haller, the son of Professor X. Haller is believed to be mentally ill, diagnosed with schizophrenia, but he realizes the voices he’s hearing are in fact real.

We’re excited to see the extent of his powers and what he does with them.
