Earlier today, we learned that FX’s Legion would be ending its run after its upcoming third season. But moments ago, the show’s official Twitter just revealed some casting news confirming that some very important (but as-yet-unseen) X-Men characters will be entering the story at last.
Though Professor Charles Xavier is a gifted telepath and an excellent educator, he’s also a rather terrible father and all-around menace to teenaged mutants. That last bit never factored too much into Fox’s live-action X-Men franchise, but it’s something that FX’s Legion is very carefully trying to remind us.
This new image from Logan shows Professor X (Patrick Stewart) in his very best “grandpa just wants to play video poker” attire. With all the slot machines in the background, we all ended up debating what game Professor X likes to play most.
