NYCC: Jemaine Clement Joins The Cast Of LEGION; Jeph Loeb Suggests Marvel And Fox Are Building Bridges

The Legion panel just wrapped at New York Comic-Con, and along with a new casting announcement, some very interesting things were brought up in relation to Fox and Marvel possibly joining forces...

The first half of FX's Legion pilot just screened at New York Comic-Con to a very positive reaction, and Noah Hawley and Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb were on hand to make a few very interesting announcements.

First, Hawley revealed that Jemaine Clement (What We Do in the Shadows, Flight of The Concords) will be joining the likes of Dan Stevens and Aubrey Plaza on the show, though he didn't reveal which character he'd be playing.

The bigger news, however, was Jeph Loeb stating that Marvel and Fox might be getting on the same page when it comes to the X-universe, and that Legion will definitely allude to the fact that Charles Xavier is David Haller's father. Does this mean we might finally see The X-Men and The Avengers in the same movie? That might be getting ahead of ourselves, but it's good to know that it's a possibility, at least.



Legion doesn't currently have a release date, but it'll premiere on FX at some point next year.
