First Poster For Legion

If we had to pin money on one film being the dark horse at this year's Comic-Con it would be Scott Stewart's Legion. And, to reinforce that assertion, here's the very first poster image from the film, showing star Paul Bettany looking decidedly unangelic, clutching knife and submachine gun as kick-ass Archangel Michael.

The film takes place at a backwater truckstop diner in the American Southwest where, after a global apocalypse has descended on the world, a group of strangers converge to discover that the establishment's young waitress is pregnant with the messiah. If the image is anything to go by then we may well be in for a treat when Sony unveil footage from the film at their Comic-Con panel on Thursday. Stay tuned and we'll bring you the lowdown as soon as everything's unveiled.
