Even though Legion, FX's X-Men-related television series, won't make its premiere until 2017, Executive Producer Noah Hawley is hard at work on the pilot's sound mix, and he shared a sneak peek photo that gives us another look at its star Dan Stevens.
Gee, what event could possibly be coming up that would require the pilot getting fine-tuned well before its official debut? Oh yeah, San Diego Comic Con is happening later this month. I wouldn't be surprised to find out that Legion gets shown to the masses there.

Legion is the story of a troubled young man who may be more than human. It introduces the story of David Haller, who since he was a teenager, has struggled with mental illness. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. But after a strange encounter with a fellow patient, he’s confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees might be real.
