Legion 2 Movie - Legion Sequel

Legion 2The first Legion movie directed by Scott Stewart isn't in theaters yet, but it looks like there is Legion movie sequel in the air! Tom Waltz, one of the Legion comic book series' writers, hinted at a possible Legion 2 movie. Here's what he said:

"Our comic provides an exclusive expansion on some of the ideas and themes presented in the film and, perhaps, a hint at things to come should there be a movie sequel [of Legion]... Each of these people have been chosen as prophets to protect the only hope for humanity in the apocalypse - a special child, who is yet to be born (for more on that, you have to see the movie!). As the apocalypse strikes and angelic possession begins to plague the planet (again, see the movie!), all five of these seemingly ordinary folks quickly find out they have special gifts and powers that set them apart from other humans... as well as a unifying mission they've all been given hints to through strange (and sometimes horrific) visions. These are standalone issues, though the fourth issue does feature all five prophets. And did I mention these are not all of the prophets in 'Legion' lore? Hint, hint."
Comic Book Writer Tom Waltz

So maybe that little boy to be born that Archangel Michael wants to protect in the film is going to meet the prophets from the comic book in the movie Legion 2! That would be awesome!

Super-humans gifted with abilities versus hordes of fanatic angels! What an explosive movie it would b:! I'm all for such a sequel to Legion!

But before we speculate further about Legion 2, let's wait for the release of the first film which has to perform well for any sequel to be greenlit!
