Comic-Con 09: Live Blog from Legion

Before the panel even begins we're shown the first trailer for Legion, a movie about an angel (Paul Bettany) descending to earth to fight a demon. The trailer is pretty ridiculous -- think angels, explosions, spidery-demons in the bodies of humans, and a whole lot of creepiness. That's Legion.

Director Scott Stewart is joined onstage by Adrianne Palicki, Tyrese Gibson, and Doug Jones, who plays the terrifying Ice Cream Man.

Jones spoke enthusiastically about being able to play a part without a mask or make-up on his face.

Gibson says, "For me, these kinds of film do it for me."

"I've never done an action movie, I've desperately wanted to do one," Bettany says. "I really loved everyone involved with the project. It was so much fun."

Stewart talks about the amount of artillery in the film, in a very explosive scene where Bettany wields two weapons at once, and he remembers that Bettany said, "I was in the Royal Shakespeare Company, but this is why I wanted to be an actor!"

Asked how much the actual story of Legion from the bible influenced this film, Stewart says, "The movie is angels with machine guns, really. It's just a fun milieu to play with. There's some elements from The Terminator in it. There's some elements from The Exorcist in it."

He continues, "Hopefully it's a fun roller coaster ride."

About the tattoos on Bettany's body that appear in the posters, Stewart says that there is meaning behind them.

Jones talks about the difference between acting with and without make-up and masks, and he says that it's the difference between wearing a sweater to work and wearing a speedo. Acting without prosthetics for him is like working in a speedo. The audience laughs at this.

At the very end Stewart reveals that he and Paul Bettany are working on another film together based on a graphic novel, titled Priest, scheduled to be released in 2010.
