Spread MCU News

Disney allegedly dismissed Beau DeMayo, the developer of the X-Men ’97 revival series. Reportedly, only a few weeks before the Disney+ premiere of X-Men ’97, Beau DeMayo was let go from his role in the show. The announcement came after DeMayo finished penned the second season of X-Men: The Animated Series, a resurrection of the television series. DeMayo was reportedly contemplating several directions for a possible third season when he was fired, implying he was taken aback by the announcement. DeMayo has contributed to other Marvel endeavours as well; he was a part of the development team for the next Blade revival in addition to the Disney+ series Moon Knight. No explanation for DeMayo’s termination has been made public as of yet. Marvel reportedly declined to comment on the story, while DeMayo reportedly did not reply to demands for comment. What is known is that DeMayo’s departure from X-Men ’97 was communicated to the cast and crew when they parted ways early last week. DeMayo was reportedly scheduled to attend the series’ Hollywood debut on March 13. However, following his firing, he will not be attending the event or taking part in any more promotional interviews for the programme.

In November 2021, DeMayo was brought on board to work on the series. “When I first came to this, I was thinking about what the world of the ’90s was like, even issues of social acceptance and what does it mean to be different?,” he later said in an interview about his idea for the resurrection. Compared to now, it was a lot more straightforward. For years, the X-Men encouraged mankind to embrace the future and go forward as a group. What occurs when they are confronted with an unexpected future? When you believe that the future is moving away from you, how does it feel to be on the other side?” The 1990s animated original series is directly continued in X-Men ’97. A.J. LoCascio (Gambit), Holly Chou (Jubilee), Matthew Waterson (Magneto), Adrian Hough (Nightcrawler), Jennifer Hale (Jean Grey), Cal Dodd (Wolverine), J.P. Karliak (Morph), Lenore Zann (Rogue), George Buza (Beast), and Holly Chase (Cyclops) are among the voice actors. Ten episodes make up X-Men ’97’s debut season. The first two episodes of Season 1 will air on March 20. After that, fresh episodes will air every week until the May 15 finale. Currently, a second season is being developed.
