The man behind the new X-Men spin-off series Legion has revealed that the show will stand on it’s own in terms of the broader universe.
Noah Hawley, who also created the TV drama Fargo, said that viewers will get to meet familiar characters but wouldn’t be more specific. He also revealed that he’d been watching a lot of older British films which influenced his creative approach.
“I found myself watching A Clockwork Orange and Quadrophenia and a lot of ’60s British films,” he said. “Yet there are elements that are futuristic too. You’ll notice there’s only one car in the whole first hour, and not many in the whole season, because cars really date something. Costume wise Clockwork had a specific look to it that I wanted to play with. “
