Legion is heading into Season 2 next year, and the highly-celebrated X-Men series on FX has finally been given its big bad villain.
At the Legion panel during San Diego Comic-Con, Noah Hawley and the cast of the show revealed that Saïd Taghmaoui, who portrayed the smooth-talking Sameer in Wonder Woman, will be portraying The Shadow King in Legion Season 2.
If you recall, The Shadow King has many personifications and he has now taken a hold of Oliver's mind. Taghmaoui will be playing the Shadow King's true personality, Amahl Farouk.
Legion is returning to FX sometime next year.
A haunted man, David escapes from the hospital and seeks shelter with his sister Amy (Katie Aselton). But Amy’s concern for her brother is trumped by her desire to protect the picture-perfect suburban life she’s built for herself. Eventually, Syd guides David to Melanie Bird (Jean Smart), a nurturing but demanding therapist with a sharp mind and unconventional methods. She and her team of specialists – Ptonomy (Jeremie Harris), Kerry (Amber Midthunder) and Cary (Bill Irwin) – open David’s eyes to an extraordinary new world of possibilities.
