Insane 'Legion' Season 2 Trailer Reveals the Shadow King's True Form

When David Haller returns in Legion Season 2, it looks like he might have to confront the Shadow King in his true, original form.

FX released the first official trailer for Season 2 on Tuesday, and in it, we get a mind-bending look at where David disappeared to after the creepy flying sphere abducted him at the end of Season 1. It’s hard to really tell with all the whispering and David’s inner psyche distorting the imagery as always, but at least there’s dancing involved, right?

Ptonomy Wallace catches David up on everything that’s happened since he left. The mutants from the Summerland group teamed-up with Division III and “started working together to fight [their] real enemy,” who we all know is Amahl Farouk, aka the Shadow King. Aubrey Plaza’s Lenny returns as part of the Shadow King entity, which possessed Jemaine Clement’s Oliver Bird in the Season 1 finale, but we also get a look at a new face for Amahl Farouk:

Navid Negahban plays a new bodily form of the Shadow King, but is this Amahl Farouk's original body?

Navid Negahban is playing a new form of Amahl Farouk in Season 2 that’s almost definitely the Shadow King’s original body. The trailer features a sequence that looks like Farouk’s body is being brought out of the ground and potentially resurrected. But it’s also totally possible that this visage just appears to David on some psychic plane.

In this insane corner of the X-Men part of the Marvel universe, anything is possible.

Season 1 hinted that just like in the comics, Farouk’s astral projection was severed from his original body by Charles Xavier following a psychic confrontation years ago. But the Shadow King might’ve figured out how to undo that?

'Legion' depicted Charles Xavier's confrontation with the Shadow King as chalkboard drawings.

The Shadow King wears many faces, and it looks like in addition to getting one more, he’ll also have developed a new parasitic power that becomes something of an epidemic in Season 2.

In a previous teaser, Sydney said that the “Chatter” kills everyone. From the looks of it in this new trailer, a shadowy little parasite enters people’s minds — including Ptonomy’s — and makes their teeth chatter endlessly until their body probably just dies.

This can only mean one thing: With the Shadow King revealing his true form, David and his friends are in more danger than ever before.


Legion Season 2 premieres April 3 on FX.

'Avengers: Endgame' Theory Suggests Ant-Man Scene Is a Classic Misdirection

There have been three Avengers: Endgame trailers so far, but the first one might have been a complete misdirect. When Ant-Man appears at the door of the Avengers compound, Captain America asks Black Widow if the message is old. Fans have speculated that the two moments aren’t a part of the same scene, and an interesting new theory suggests the message is actually from someone else entirely.

'Apex Legends' Season 1 Battle Pass, Start Date, Challenges, Cost, and More

'Apex Legends' is about to get much bigger.

Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends took the world by storm with its surprise release in February, and the game’s burgeoning community is about to get even bigger when Season 1 launches in March.

Fortnite’s biggest free-to-play battle royale competitor will soon have a nearly identical seasonal structure that includes a premium battle pass available for purchase.

Here's When 'Avengers: Endgame' Tickets Will Probably Go on Sale

The most realistic window is actually very soon.

Avengers: Endgame is officially less than two months away, and anyone who wants to have prime seats for that Thursday night showing should start monitoring ticket sales immediately. There’s no official word just yet, but we can safely assume that Avengers: Endgame tickets will go on sale sometime within the next month or so.

Everything We Know About 'Love, Death & Robots' Season 2 Isn't Much

Netflix's bizarre, hypnotic new series will probably get a second season.

Netflix’s new NSFW anthological animated sci-fi series is unlike anything else on the streaming service, and we’re already wondering if we can expect a Love, Death & Robots Season 2, full of even more hyper-sexualized, and sometimes gruesome, sci-fi stories.

Love, Death & Robots Season 1 hit Netflix on Friday, March 15, 2019, offering 18 different stories of varied lengths between six and 17 minutes long, each telling a totally unique story using different animation styles.

Here's Where the Magnifying Glass Sits on the Treasure Map in 'Fortnite'

Look for the ice statues.

There’s a new challenge in the world of Fortnite: Battle Royale for Season 8, Week 3 that should also feel very familiar to players — it’s a fusion of two things we’re all used to doing.

Week 3 began Tuesday morning at 10:30 a.m. Eastern, about 90 minutes later than usual, and even more delayed than Week 2. We predicted that treasure map challenges would return in Season 8, and here in Week 3, they have returned … sort of.
