SDCC 2017: LEGION’s Noah Hawley Is Developing A Doctor Doom Movie At Fox

And big casting news for LEGION S2!

The Legion panel completely filled up Ballroom 20 today, and in the very last minute showrunner Noah Hawley (also responsible for FX's Fargo) made a major announcement. 

"I'm developing a movie at Fox, and I'll just say two words to you guys: Doctor. Doom."

Big news! 

In other big news from the panel, we learned that Wonder Woman's Saïd Taghmaoui is joining Season Two as Shadow King/Amahl Farouk, who has until now been portrayed by Aubrey Plaza (sort of). THR has a few more details: 

FX describes Farouk as a 'villain with a thousand faces. In his real form, he is always nattily dressed. Dapper with a thin Clark Gable style mustache. His eyes forever hidden behind a pair of ornate sunglasses. He was hip long before there was such an idea. He can seductively hold court on any topic and in any language, but his true passion lies in the singular timeless notion of power and amassing as much of it as possible.

It is rumored he is the spawn of the first nightmare, which is fitting because fear is his weapon of choice in exposing weakness in others. To Farouk, fear equals weakness and he fears nothing. Which is why he takes such delight in seeing others squirm — a reminder he is more powerful than them.'

And though this has been rumored elsewhere, Hawley confirmed today that Season 2 will get a ten-episode order, two more eps than the first season.
