X-Men ’97 Release Date Status Speculation, Plot, Cast, and More (Updates)!

What sets X-Men ’97 apart from the rest of Marvel’s Comic-Con 2022 announcements is that it is the only revival/continuation of a legendary ’90s superhero show that Marvel has announced. Announcing X-Men: The Animated Series ’97 comes as the original program approaches the 30th anniversary of its first episode. This is why Marvel Animation’s new show, X-Men: The Animated Series, has been titled so: It aired from October 1992 until September 1997.

It was Beau DeMayo, who penned the animated Witcher spinoff Nightmare of the Wolf, who is serving as X-Men ’97’s chief writer. As advisors, Eric and Julia Lewald, the showrunners of X-Men: The Animated Series’ predecessor, are helping out. From 1994 to 1998, two animated series shared a common screen universe: X-Men: The Animated Series, which featured characters from both franchises, and was known as “The Animated Series,” which featured characters from both franchises. X-Men ’97 is not a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which implies that mutants in the MCU will not be influenced by the new series.


To be honest, the only new project announced at Comic-Con that isn’t associated with the Marvel Cinematic Universe is X-Men ’97. X-Men ’97 will be animated in a slick and modern style that pays homage to the classic cartoon, according to what has been released about the show. Other than the cast, story, and release date, the following information should be helpful to moviegoers anticipating X-Men: The Last Stand.

Is X-Men ’97 A Reboot Or A Sequel Series?

There will not be a reboot of X-Men ’97, but it will be a straight sequel to the end of the original ’90s animated series. Because Professor X is transported to the Shi’ar Empire for medical treatment at the end of X-Men: The Animated Series, Magneto or Cyclops will be the group’s commander in X-Men ’97. Professor X persuaded a hesitant Magneto to take on this leadership role, despite the displeasure of certain fans and even Magneto himself. When it comes to X-Men: ’97, this creates a new aspect for live-action films to explore.

X-Men ’97 Cast: Every Character Confirmed

X-Men ’97 will gratify long-time fans of the classic cartoons, as most of the surviving cast members will reprise their roles. Alyson Court, who previously portrayed Jubilee, will be reprising her role in X-Men ’97, albeit she has reportedly requested that an Asian actor take over the role. X-Men ’97 will feature Jubilee, Magneto, and Sunspot, but their voice actors have yet to be announced. X-Men ’97 is bringing back some of Marvel’s most beloved mutants in one fell swoop, while the MCU’s next mutant character is eagerly awaited. Cal Dodd as James Howlett/Wolverine, Alison Sealy-Smith as Ororo Munroe/Storm, and Chris Potter as Remy Lebeau/Gambit round out the cast of X-Men ’97. Adrian Hough as Nightcrawler, George Buza as Dr. Henry “Hank” McCoy/Beast, and Christopher Britton as Nathaniel Essex are the other X-Men cast members.

X-Men ’97 Story: What We Know

X-Men ’97 will be distinct from any other recent or well-known onscreen adaptation in a number of ways, including the fact that Magneto will lead the X-Men instead of Professor X. Marvel has not revealed anything about X-Men ’97’s narrative, but X-Men: The Animated Series lay out its whole premise. In other words, this implies that the primary story of X-Men ’97 won’t be slowed down by world-building, and can get right to it. It’s also possible that, like the blockbuster ’80s comic book storylines like the Dark Phoenix saga and “Days of Future Past” that made X-Men: The Animated Series famous, the show will adapt X-Men comic book stories from the recent decade.

X-Men ’97 Release Date

X-Men ’97 has yet to be given a release date, however, it has been revealed that the film will be released in the fall of 2023.

X-Men: The Animated Series is currently available on Disney+ for anyone who wants to rewatch the original series. X-Men: The Animated Series had a peak audience of 23 million viewers. The new X-Men series is poised to top the success of 1997’s X-Men: First Class.


Officially, X-Men ’97 is not part of the primary continuity of the MCU, according to what we know so far. However, it’s debatable what this implies in the end. Scientists have found evidence that Professor X and the mutants exist in another reality, and that their appearance matches that of the 1990s television series.

It’s safe to say that X-Men ’97 is part of the MCU if you include the universe in your calculations, but it has no bearing on the main storyline. Is a crossover in the works? Captain Carter, on the other hand, was first introduced in What If…? before making his first appearance as a fully realized character in Multiverse of Madness. X-Men, on the other hand, presents a slightly more difficult challenge.
