By now, audiences have seen several cinematic promos for FX’s “Legion,” but with the Feb. 8 premiere date encroaching, FX has made it abundantly clear it’s not done teasing what the series has to uniquely offer. Today, Marvel tweeted out a new TV spot for the X- Men spinoff series, which you can check out below.

“His mind has a mind of its own,” the caption reads. The video shows an MRI scan of a brain that’s completely normal, save for the mystical blue ember growing with each image and beep of the machine. The ember completely consumes the skull on the final scan, looking very reminiscent of one of the show’s main poster. Each scan morphs into a sort of Rorschach ink blot (fitting the psychiatric hospital setting). Finally, we see Legion himself David Haller (Dan Stevens) slide into the machine and stare back at the camera.
While not much is known yet about this particular take on Legion, creator Noah Hawley (“Fargo”) has promised his origin story from the comics will remain intact, but that “Legion” the television series will be a “dramatic departure” from other Marvel shows.
Also starring Aubrey Plaza, Katie Aselton, Bill Irwin and Amber Midthunder, “Legion” debuts February 8 on FX.
