Writer Tom Waltz has revealed that the comic book prequel to the Paul Bettany film Legion contains hints of a cinematic sequel.
According to the writer, Legion: Prophets features background characters and events from the flick, as well as provides a sneak peak at things to come:
“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,” Waltz told reporters.
“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.
“As the apocalypse strikes and angelic possession begins to plague the planet, 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,” he continued.
“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.”
