Patrick Stewart has already said he'd "100%" be willing to portray Prof. X on Legion. Whether that actually happens or not remains to be seen.

I get cost is a factor. That and whether the films want to fully embrace the show. At the moment they have the nice situation of deniability. Given how they are with the X-films I'd be surprised whether they care if having Stewart or McAvoy turn up could cause any continuity issues.

While they haven’t come out and said it quite yet, “Chapter 7” essentially confirmed what comic book fans already knew – David’s mysterious father is actually Professor Charles Xavier, the power psychic and leader of the X-Men. With the show’s villains seemingly off to hunt him down, will Professor X put in an appearance next season? That’s a tricky question for Hawley to answer, noting that it will involve a “corporate conversation”:

Any person who learns that they were adopted is going to have those questions and want to seek out those birth parents. I think that’s a very natural story. Certainly where we left David at the end of the first year, that can’t be his first priority, but in terms of coming to understand who he is and what his purpose is on this world? I think that that’s definitely something we’re going to approach. And then it’s a creative conversation, but also a sort of corporate conversation on some level, in terms of the movie studio and their relationship to the X-Men and the characters they want in the movies and want to protect potentially. Were we to want to have Professor X on the show, or even Patrick Stewart on the show, or even James McAvoy, or one of the actors — it’s a conversation both with the actor and with the studio. I don’t know. I haven’t really dived into that quandary yet. But I certainly need to start thinking about it.

Here's what Hawley said on David's father: http://www.slashfilm.com/legion-season-finale-questions/

Huh, that was a really short retirement from the role! But I'm glad.

What was Oliver's power? I thought he was psychic as well or was he just able to do psychic Jazz magic. Sometimes it's hard to tell if the show's being deliverately vague or accidentally vague. I still don't know Oliver or Melanie's powers.

Oliver is a psychic, I'm pretty sure Melanie and Cary (or David) had a conversation about that in an earlier episode. My impression of Oliver's powers were that they were language based. All his beat poetry seemed weird, but of a piece with his wardrobe and wackiness.. Then he started making a shield out of the word "shield" during the Bolero scene.

I was under the impression that someone on the writing staff for this show was playing with different aspects of the mind. Walter (the Eye) was all about visual perception. Ptonomy was all about memory. Cary and Kerry seemed to be ego and id. Syd was an amped up empathy. So Oliver's "effect" coming out of the language center of the brain seemed to fit for me.
