First Look at Paul Bettany as a Badass Angel in Legion

Paul Bettany’s “Legion” is flying under the radar right now, but it’s not flying under my radar. This is easily one of my most anticipated movies of 2010, and the one panel at Comic Con I will do everything in my power to attend, if just to see something from this movie. What can I say, I just dig the whole concept behind it. Plus, Paul Bettany is fronting the flick as a badass arc angel armed with a knife and a machinegun. And wings. Don’t forget about the wings. How could something like that not be totally badass?

Anyways, all that is a long-winded way to say that the guys over at MaximumPC snuck their way into the San Diego Convention Center where Comic Con will be held in mere days and snapped some pictures. Thanks to reader J. Mack, who recognized my enthusiasm for “Legion” and sent me the heads up. Dude, you rock.

In the film, Bettany will play Michael, who along with some humans in a diner in the middle of nowhere, has to protect the messiah growing inside one of the diner’s waitress. All that, while the apocalypse is taking place outside the diner. Yikes. The film will co-star Dennis Quaid, Doug Jones, Tyrese Gibson, Kevin Durand, Kate Walsh , Lucas Black, Willa Holland, and Adrianne Palicki.

Update:

Another reader just pointed me to this poster for “Legion” over at SlashFilm.

    This sounds very itneresting. A little bit of The Prophecy and some “Gabriel” in there. I like Paul Bettany and I’m glad he’s getting a starring role in something.

    Loved the movie; OK, so it’s going to piss off the fundamentalist Christians but Paul Bettany is not just another slice of beefcake, he can actually act!
