The X-Men franchise is slowly expanding beyond the silver scree and with many excited to see a show focusing on the Hellfire club and Legion, some expectations might not be quite met and another show sadly might have lost an important element pushing it back for another year.

First off, Hellfire seemed to have lost its showrunner, as co-creators and writers Evan Katz and Manny Coto left the project to work on the reboot of 24: Legacy, which will not feature the famous Jack Bauer character. They both worked as executive producers on the original 24 and it's sequel 24: Live Another Day. Furthermore, Patrick McKay and John D. Payne, who help develop the story, have also left the project. Fox is still comitted to the project and it might still see the light of day in 2017.

2016 might still see the release of Legion, a show that was previously believed to be a part of the X-Men universe we have seen in the films, but now has been revealed to take place in a completely different world. "It's not in the continuity of those films in the sense the current X-Men films take place in a universe in which everybody on planet Earth is aware of the existence of mutants." according to FX President John Landgrag. The show still has a 2016 release date with it being a short ten episode season.

What do you think? Will Hellfire still be developed? Could Legion feature a multiverse aspect? Leave your thoughts below!
