Marvel’s FX Legion promised to take us deeper into the enigmatic Shadow King’s past with Season 2, but it seems Said Taghmaoui won’t be the one to guide us. The Wonder Woman star was previously cast as a new version of Season 1 big bad Amahl Farouk, but has mysteriously exited production ahead of schedule.
The debut of Marvel’s Punisher spinoff brings the grand total of MCU and X-universe series up to eleven; soon to be twelve with Hulu’s Runaways. From the slums of Hell’s Kitchen to the moon, the time is now to rank all of Marvel’s current-generation live-action series, including our beloved Defenders, mutants and more.
The big bad of FX’s Legion has several forms by nature, but Season 2 may introduce us to the original. The X-drama’s Comic-Con 2017 panel reveals that Wonder Woman hero Said Taghmaoui will break bad as a familiar and shadowy presence when the series returns in 2018.
The Emmys may not have shown Legion love, but it’s sunny skies ahead for Season 2 of the FX mutant drama. Our first look at the Shadow King’s 2018 return has arrived in the form of a Season 2 script page featuring Lenny and Oliver Bird soaking up sun.
The nominations are in for the 2017 Emmy Awards and there’s just as much to celebrate as there is to be disappointed about. The 2016-2017 TV season was a huge year for the small screen, reaching the peak-iest of peak TV. It was full of more new series than you could keep track of, diverse casts, and many groundbreaking episodes in both the comedy and drama departments. A brief scan of the major categories may leave you feeling a little bummed over the nominations, with many of the usual suspecting making the cut yet again – can the Emmys even exist without Modern Family or Julia Louis-Dreyfus nods at this point? And critical and fan favorites like The Leftovers, Girls, and Legion were nowhere to be seen in the top categories.
It’s a brave new world for the 2017 Emmy awards with Game of Thrones and others sitting this year out. The big announcement is finally here, as presented by Veep star Anna Chlumsky and Criminal Minds veteran Shemar Moore, so let’s find out what we’re all angry about/celebrating this year at the Emmys!
