For all the excitement of FX greenlighting a TV series tethered to the X-Men universe, showrunner Noah Hawley has remained adamant that Legion would largely stand alone from Marvel’s mutant franchise. Now, Hawley claims Legion will be more Alice in Wonderland than Apocalypse, and may not address the character’s family tie to Charles Xavier.

Well, even the strongest may not have survived X-Men: Apocalypse’s meager opening weekend, but Marvel’s mutants will officially have a whole new proving ground on TV. FX has picked up Noah Hawley’s Legion for its first season, debuting a first look at Dan Stevens in the title role.

Before you get all worried about the Predator part of that headline, rest assured that it’s good news: Fox has actually moved Shane Black’s sequel up by almost an entire month, putting it in early February 2018, likely hoping to replicate the success of similar R-rated fare like Kingsman and Deadpool. The studio has also announced new release dates for two untitled Marvel projects and Robert Rodriguez’s Alita Battle Angel, as well as the spy thriller Red Sparrow.

The reception of this weekend’s X-Men: Apocalypse will surely have a hand in deciding the future of the franchise, but leave it to TV to explore the decidedly weirder corners of the X-universe. Take FX’s Noah Hawley-drawn Legion, which the Fargo showrunner claims will deliver “something whimsical and imaginative and unexpected,” rather than punching and kicking.

Early reviews of X-Men: Apocalypse haven’t been particularly welcoming, even as the nine-film franchise seemingly skews closer and closer to the colorful weirdness of its comic heyday. Many a fan jump right back to the ‘90s X-Men: The Animated Series (and its inimitable theme) as a pinnacle of X-nostalgia, now appropriately given the “Honest Trailer” treatment just in time for the movie!

In Cinemautopsy, we look back at a recent, high-profile failure and asks a simple question: What the hell happened? In this installment... the most popular member of a massive franchise. A hugely talented supporting cast full of up-and-coming actors. A promising indie director. The mysterious origin of a legendary comic book superhero. What could possibly go wrong?

Jennifer Lawrence isn’t contracted for another X-Men sequel, but back in March she seemed pretty happy about the possibility of returning for more films. It’s been two months since then, and while Lawrence appears to be a little less eager about it now, she says that she’ll reprise the role of Raven…there’s just one thing that has to happen. Or maybe two.

Producer Simon Kinberg recently revealed that the next X-Men sequel will take place during the ’90s, which is fairly unsurprising given that it follows the decade-by-decade pattern of the recent trilogy. That doesn’t tell us much about their plans for the next chapter of the X-Men saga, but Bryan Singer has put forth an idea that may give us a hint about where the story is heading.

‘X-Men’ Producer Simon Kinberg Says the Next Sequel Will Take Place in the ’90s

X-Men: First Class took place in the ’60s. X-Men: Days of Future Past moved to the ’70s. Apocalypse is set in the ’80s. Like one of those “what comes next” questions on an IQ test, you can probably guess where this is going, but just in case you had any doubt, producer Simon Kinberg says — get ready — that the next X-Men sequel will take place in the ’90s. Jennifer Lawrence would probably look pretty cute in a choker necklace, to be honest.
