Legion star Dan Stevens recently opened up about potentially reprising the role of David Heller in a future Marvel project.

The Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire and Abigail actor starred in the FX series for three seasons. While it didn't become a massive hit like the other Marvel shows, it achieved cult status in the years since it aired.

Considering that the MCU is exploring the multiverse and is slowly integrating the X-Men property, fans are wondering whether the Legion world will be revisited in some capacity.

Legion's Dan Stevens is Open to Return as David Heller

In a recent interview, Stevens was asked whether he is open to reprising the role of David Heller from Legion.

Fortunately, he responded by saying that he was open to reprising the role as he loved the character and enjoyed making the series.

"I love that character. I loved doing that show, and it was such a creative team behind it. Yeah, I loved it, so if they bring it back, I'm here," he said.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania star Kathryn Newton, who was with Stevens in the interview, chimed in and suggested the idea of a team-up between David Heller and her character Cassie Lang.

"Could you make that happen?" Stevens asked back. Newton replied, "I don't know. Call Kevin [Feige]."

Stevens added, "Shrink Legion down to little, tiny size."

Some fans would definitely love to see Stevens reprise the role of David Heller in some capacity although that remains unlikely for now since Marvel Studios has not shown any intention to bring back Legion.

It wouldn't be surprising if Stevens ends up playing a different character instead when he joins the MCU just like his Legion co-star Aubrey Plaza, who will have a different role in the upcoming series Agatha.
