FX CELEBRATES SEASON 2 OF LEGION WITH INSTALLATION BY ACCLAIMED ARTIST MARCO BRAMBILLA STUDIO FROM MARCH 30 – APRIL 1 BEFORE THE S2 PREMIER OF LEGION (FX) TUESDAY, APRIL 3RD AT 10 PM ET/PT

Our aim was to create an experience that would take the viewer through multiple levels of Haller’s altered states of consciousness. A flood of moments, thoughts, and memories are reflected into fragmented mirrored surfaces, these kaleidoscopic reflections completely surround us and we have the sense of assuming the characters’ psychological POV. I produced “Fracture” with THE MILL, the world-renowned Visual Effects & Design Company with whom I’ve worked with many times before. Working together, we were able to achieve start-of-the-art production values for this immersive experience,” artist Marco Brambilla said.

I’m beyond excited to attend the opening of the 360 degree art exhibit of one of my favorite Marvel shows. I was curious when they announced Legion at SDCC two years ago but had no idea what to expect but from the first episode I knew this was unlike any other series on tv. The twists and turns, unexpected emotional connection and well it’s darned scary! Now with the premier just next week I can’t imagine the fan experience that FX has put together for all the lucky fangirls/fanboys in LA but I’m all in!

Any fan of the Marvel series LEGION has seen the madness but now we get to experience it in 360 degrees. Marco Brambilla Studio was inspired to create a one-of-a-kind presentation taking place at the Goya Studios in Hollywood. Fans will experience David’s altered states of reality as they try to figure out whats in their imagination and real as we count down the days to S2 from Noah Hawley, Executive Producer of the surreal drama.

RSVP Tickets

On working with Brambilla, Kenya Hardaway, SVP of Integrated Promotions at FX said, “We are excited to have Marco Brambilla’s amazing artistic piece, FRACTURE, to share with fans of Legion. As admirers of his works, we believed his innovative style could present a new perspective on David Haller’s world. FRACTURE, does just that – captivating the audience through a marvelous visual display.”

Based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, Legion is the story of “David Haller” (Dan Stevens), a man who believed himself to be schizophrenic only to discover that he may actually be the most powerful mutant the world has ever seen.

From childhood, David shuffled from one psychiatric institution to the next until, in his early 30s, he met and fell in love with a beautiful and troubled fellow patient named “Syd” (Rachel Keller). After Syd and David shared a startling encounter, he was forced to confront the shocking possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees may actually be real. Syd led David to “Melanie Bird” (Jean Smart), a demanding but nurturing therapist who heads a team of specialists – “Ptonomy” (Jeremie Harris), “Kerry” (Amber Midthunder) and “Cary” (Bill Irwin) – each of whom possesses a unique and extraordinary gift. Together, they helped David to recognize and harness his hidden powers. With their support, David finally unlocked a deeply suppressed truth – he had been haunted his entire life by a malicious parasite of unimaginable power. Known as the “Shadow King,” this malevolent creature appeared in the form of David’s friend “Lenny” (Aubrey Plaza), but is actually an ancient being named “Amahl Farouk.” In an epic showdown, David and his friends battled his demon, ultimately forcing it from David’s body. Unfortunately, Farouk found a new host – Melanie’s husband “Oliver Bird” (Jemaine Clement) – and escaped. Just when they thought they’d earned a moment of respite, a mysterious orb appeared and took David away to an unknown place. With David and Oliver missing and Farouk on the loose, the team forms an unlikely alliance with their former enemy “Clark” (Hamish Linklater) and his well-funded government organization, Division III. Meanwhile, Amahl Farouk (Navid Negahban) is on a new path to attaining infinite and world-ending power.

Noah Hawley serves as Executive Producer, along with John C

ameron, Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg, Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory. Legion is the latest project from Hawley and Cameron, two of the executive producers of the Emmy® and Golden Globe®-winning FX anthology series Fargo. Legion is produced by FX Productions and Marvel Television, with FXP handling the physical production.

Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Con kicked off October 27 from 1pm-6pm. Didn’t make it? Here are some of the talented guests you may have missed:

  • Stan Lee was in attendance, and attendees were able to bring in or purchase items to be signed by the man himself.

  • Comic book artist Jae Lee, who won an Eisner Award for his art in Marvel’s The Inhumans. You might recognize his haunting art from Vol #1 of the The New 52 Batman/Superman run by Greg Pak.

    If you love anything slightly nerdy you love Gary Montalbano, who has his own booth at the convention. He has worked on several fan-favorite brands, including Batman:The Animated Series, Young Justice, Tom & Jerry, Mortal Combat, and Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, to name a few.

  • Inker Koi Turnbull is responsible for some seriously beautiful DC and Marvel panels.

    Mike Mayhew’s variant cover for Marvel’s Secret Wars Issue #1.

    ovie Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius along with the 2001’s animated Justice League television show and many more of your favorite children’s cartoons.

  • Mike Mayhew gained popularity with his cover art for Marvel’s Mystique and Elektra comics in the 1990’s, and more recently is the main cover artist for Star Wars and  comics.  
  • Not a person, but The Magic: The Gathering Sealed Event with exclusive Amnokhet Pre-Release Boxes and gameplay. First to sixth place won free packs of the not yet releases Amonkhet.
