Bryan Singer may have built the live-action X-Men franchise, but allegations against the director appear to be catching up. FX confirms that Singer’s executive producer credit has been removed from X-drama Legion, with FOX’s The Gifted looking into doing the same.
The third season of Noah Hawley’s FX Fargo seemed slightly less urgent than its predecessors; a telltale sign that Hawley might move onto other projects before any possible return. That said, a fourth season might arrive sooner than we thought, as FX says Hawley has a phenomenal idea that could arrive by 2019.
It’s the final day of TCA press tour, and with it, FX updates are fast and furious. Network brass have either grim or wonderful news on future Louie, while Fargo Season 4 might be a few years away, and FX Sons of Anarchy spinoff Mayans MC could have a greenlight in the next few months.
One of the saddest aspects about the American film industry’s inexplicable inability to get the Fantastic Four right is the lack of a worthy cinematic representation of their primary foe, the menacing, megalomaniacal, mysterious Doctor Doom. He’s a great character, with all the gravitas of a disgraced royal (he rules over the fictitious kingdom of Latveria, which is not the same as Latvia, in one of my childhood’s most major disappointments) and the volatility of a man driven by revenge. His mythology — the trademark green cape and metal faceplate, his grandiloquent manner of speaking — has already inspired at least one legend in the world of music, and now the movies will finally catch up.
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.
FX is practically assembling its own Avengers of TV talent, and who better to direct them than the Russo brothers? The pair will produce and direct a new DEA crime drama based on Evan Ratliff’s work, with help from a Fargo favorite and the Walking Dead boss.
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.
Fargo creator Noah Hawley previously suggested that “Year 3” might be the last Minnesota mayhem we get for years, and Wednesday’s finale cemented that. Find out how long Hawley plans to bench his beloved crime drama, and what other Fargo favorites very nearly popped up in Season 3.
