When Marvel Cinematic Universe followers debate which reveals from days passed by must be welcomed again into franchise canon, the standard suspects are typically nearly completely comprised of Netflix’s Defenders Saga and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which all too usually leaves the spectacularly neglected Legion out of the equation.
Comfortably one of many most interesting episodic initiatives to ever bear the great identify of Marvel, Noah Hawley’s existential three-season mindf*ck was bolstered by an outstanding efficiency from Dan Stevens within the lead position of David Haller, who it must be famous is the son of a sure Charles Xavier within the comedian books and on TV.
Recent Agatha: Coven of Chaos addition Aubrey Plaza and Prey‘s breakout star Amber Midthunder were also part of the ensemble along with the inimitable Jean Smart, but underwhelming ratings never matched the levels of acclaim reached by a series that garnered Rotten Tomatoes scores of 90, 91, and 93 percent across its three seasons.
Marvel Television has since been dismantled and absorbed into Kevin Feige’s empire, however followers on Reddit are stating the case for Legion to be canonized within the MCU, if just for the very fact it f*cking guidelines and we’d like to see Stevens run riot within the 616 timeline. The finale primarily wiped every part that occurred throughout the 27 episodes from existence by way of some temporal shenanigans, too, so technically it might even begin off with a clean slate.
The X-Men are being rebooted, the Multiverse Saga is in play, variants are an more and more necessary a part of the mythology, and Stevens is an exceptional actor who knocked his advanced central prove of the park and into the stratosphere, so all it could take can be a rejigging of sure timeline parts to make it occur, even when we’ve obtained the sadly sneaking suspicion that it gained’t.
