At Legion‘s San Diego Comic-Con panel it was announced Wonder Woman star Said Taghmaoui would star as The Shadow King in the upcoming second season. Well we now have our first look at Taghmaoui as the malevolent parasite who took control of David’s brain in Season 1.
As fans of the show know The Shadow King appeared in the form of Aubrey Plaza’s character Lenny last season, but he will now take on his true form. The Shadow King has a longstanding grudge against David’s father, Professor X, and this season will see him try to take out his grudge on David.
The Shadow King is described as “A villain with a thousand faces” so it will be quite interesting to see Taghmaoui capture this personality on the show.
