David Will Only Cause You Pain In Latest Legion Teaser

by Erik Amaya

David Haller (Dan Stevens) has his own little cult as Legion‘s third season begins. He offers a very attractive form of peace and certainty. But as this latest teaser for the upcoming final season illustrates, his former friends at Division 3 are not so certain he can help people. In fact, both Cary (Bill Irwin) and Kerry (Amber Midthunder) are quite certain all he can do is cause pain.

While we will be sad to see this series go as the X-Men are returned to Marvel Entertainment, we have to applaud its audacious take on Mutants in general and David in particular. To me, he was always more of a plot device than a person; interesting only in his various diagnoses. But show creator Noah Hawley made his world far more engrossing, cinematic, and bizarre than anything else. It also seemed to open the doors to stranger comic book television adaptations in its wake. Hopefully, another Marvel television show will pick up the torch and become as inventive and weird — but in a completely different way, of course.
Legion returns June 24th.
