Noah Hawley’s FX X-Men drama Legion might have skipped out on Comic-Con 2016 itself, but when better to drop a first look? Up is down, cats and dogs are living together, and everything seems bonkers insane in the first full Legion trailer, complete with dance number!

As FX began moving forward with Noah Hawley’s X-Men universe TV series Legion, many wondered what happened to FOX’s own project based on the Hellfire Club. That series has apparently cooled, while Burn Notice vet Matt Nix and Bryan Singer develop a new X-Men series for FOX with close ties to an underground mutant group.

While reviews for Captain America: Civil War were not quite as unanimous as past entries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there was one thing we could all agree on: Sony Pictures was very, very smart to let Marvel take a crack at shaping the next series of Spider-Man movies.

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.

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.

Relive Jean Grey’s X-Gasms in the ‘X-Men’ Animated Series Honest Trailer

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!
