In X-Men ’97, both the X-Men and their former mechanical adversaries return. The iconic crew faced battle against a horde of deadly Sentinels in an official trailer for Marvel’s X-Men: The Animated Series, set to the iconic X-Men theme music. A few displays of the X-Men’s strength follow, including Rogue ripping off a Sentinel’s head, Beast altering its chassis from the inside, and Bishop deflecting an energy pulse that a Sentinel had attacked by absorbing it. But even with their abilities, the Sentinels are resilient; before Wolverine can completely destroy it, one of them throws him off its shoulder and into another robot.

Apart from welcoming back beloved X-Men voice actors like CalDodd, Lenore Zann, and Alison Sealy-Smith, the narrative of X-Men’97 will have a clear connection to the 1997 series finale of the original animation.Former showrunner Beau DeMayo discussed in a February interview how he aimed to bring together traditional and contemporary views of the X-Men: “When I initially started thinking about this, I was thinking about what the world of the ’90s was like, even concerns of societal acceptability and what does it mean to be different?Compared to now, it was a lot more straightforward.The X-Men spent years urging people 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?”

From March 20 to May 15, ten episodes of X-Men ’97 will air; the last three episodes will comprise the season finale. Actor Theo James (The White Lotus, The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf) will voice a “fan-favorite character” who is currently unidentified in addition to the current X-Men cast. The almost thirty-year impact of the programme, however, is still felt in contemporary Marvel media, particularly in the way that X-Men characters are progressively incorporated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This contains references to mutants in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Ms. Marvel being escorted by X-Men theme variations, and Charles Xavier from the Multiverse of Madness riding in the futuristic wheelchair seen in the animation. A third season of What If…?, Marvel Zombies, and Your Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-Man are among the other animated Marvel shows currently in development. X-Men ’97, on the other hand, has lately been the focus of controversy due to a story that stated Marvel dismissed DeMayo, who had just completed authoring the second season of the animation, a week prior to its premiere. It’s still unclear what the formal reason was for DeMayo’s termination.
