My understanding via those wily rascals at Deadline is that we are about to see(hopefully this year) a new mutant based series from FOX. The series has loosely been described as two parents who discover their children have mutant powers and are forced on the run due to this fact the government is hostile to this gene based fact.(If these kids turn out to be Hispanic and the main villain is Trumpneto I call shenanigans on you FOX!!!!”).
I do have to admit that the promos for “LEGION” on FX have not been curling my toes so I’m glad this show is being added to the X-universe. I also hope they incorporate it into the main movie universe(pick one)and not try to do a standalone(looking at you Gotham).This could be a great introduction for the Morlocks(I know, I know….A BETTER introduction)or possibly some other 3rd or 4th tier X-characters.
The Mutant universe still needs to find it’s “Netflix” where it’s darker, grittier characters can have a chance to shine.
I’ve watched Burn Notice so I know Matt Nix can do good TV. He’s also produced with Bryan Singer and Jeph Loeb. Would be good to get those two into couples therapy to see if we can get the X and Marvel universes back together where they belong.
