On Saturday July 23, FX and Marvel released a first look at their upcoming TV show “Legion,” an “X-Men” spinoff, at San Diego Comic Con. Don’t expect “Legion” to live in the same realm as the current “X-Men” films. The series will take place in a parallel universe according to John Landgraf, President of FX.
