CBTVB: ‘Wonder Woman’ Star Coming to Marvel’s Legion Season 2

By Muuka Muyumba

Wonder Woman scene stealer Said Taghmaoui to play Amahl Farouk, aka the Shadow King, in season 2 of FX’s smash hit Legion.

The first season of Legion saw star Dan Stevens as David Haller, a man who believed he was schizophrenic but was ultimately found to be one of the most powerful mutants in the world. His psychosis was exacerbated by having to fight for his existence against another powerful mutant parasite called the Shadow King. The story went that Haller’s biological father, Charles Xavier, was in a psyonic battle to protect his son, so he hid David away to keep him away from Farouk. Farouk found David before his corporeal body was destroyed and attached himself to David and tortured him until an X-Men-like mutant group helped to break the link.

The Shadow King first appeared in the comics in Uncanny X-Men #117 in January of 1979, a creation of Chris Claremont and John Byrne. He is a telepathic parasite who was embodied by a dog, a drug-addled friend Lenny, and a woman played by Aubrey Plaza in season 1.

Taghmauoi will play the character in season 2 after Plaza’s character escaped at the end of season 1 after a huge Astral plane battle with Stevens’ Haller.

FX has not set a premiere date for Legion season 2 yet.
