When the TV show Legends came to life on the air in 2017, it had no official name.
So the producers started to play around with the name and called it “Legend”.
It was originally a nickname given to the group of superheroes that were part of the popular TV series, but that nickname was soon changed.
“It became something more,” the Legends cast member and showrunner Mike Vogel told Variety.
The name “legends” was a reference to the superheroes’ common nickname, the X-Men.
The X-men Legends cast members: James McAvoy as Professor X, Evan Peters as Magneto, Katee Sackhoff as Jean Grey, Michael Rooker as Storm, John DiMaggio as Colossus, and Dominic Cooper as Gambit.
The show started as a series of comics, but soon evolved into a TV series with the addition of a film.
The show was later picked up for a movie in 2018.
The cast members and producers had a fun time getting the name right and they even used the show’s nickname to advertise a new line of toys.
“We had the best time we could have in getting it right,” Vogel said.
They were also able to make the series more of a live-action show and that helped the show resonate with its fans.
The first movie was released in July 2019 and starred Hugh Jackman, Evan Rachel Wood, and Olivia Munn.
