X-Men ’97 promo hints to return of an Avenger

Spread MCU News

One day after the most recent episode of X-Men ’97 featured its first big Marvel Cinematic Universe character, Marvel Studios unveiled a new trailer for the animated Disney+ series, hinting the presence of a beloved Avengers. This should not surprise many X-Men fans, considering the superhero first featured in the original X-Men: The Animated Series. Marvel Studios has published a mid-season trailer for X-Men ’97 on X, promising the last five episodes of the critically acclaimed continuation. Although image is brief, viewers can see Captain America’s shield soaring into view and landing in the snow, hinting that the World War II hero will emerge before the first season concludes next month. The Star Spangled Man With a Plan was previously seen in the X-Men: The Animated Series episode “Old Soldiers,” which revealed that he collaborated with Wolverine during World War II to save a kidnapped scientist from the Red Skull and the Nazis.

Fans shouldn’t be surprised if Captain America appears in X-Men ’97, given that the creative team behind the animated revival has consistently teased that non-mutant Marvel superheroes will feature. X-Men ’97’s production head and director, Jake Castorena, said earlier this month that Marvel Studios pushed the crew to incorporate cameos, noting, “Cameos are in the DNA of the show. That has been instilled since the beginning, and it all stems from what the original program did, correct? “…If we want to be a spiritual successor or revival, we must follow in the footsteps of what was ingrained in their DNA.”

The Watcher was the first non-X-Men character to emerge in X-Men ’97, and his silhouette may be seen in the sky just before the attack on Genosha in Episode 5, “Remember It.” The Watcher, first introduced in Marvel Studios’ What If…?, is a fifth-dimensional creature who watches over the MCU Multiverse from the Nexus of All Realities. His debut in X-Men ’97 comes after executive producer Brad Winderbaum hinted at “potential for connections” between the animated reboot and the larger multiverse. According to the official synopsis, X-Men ’97 takes place one year after the events of “Graduation Day,” the series finale of X-Men: The Animated Series. It revisits the iconic 1990s as The X-Men, a group of mutants who use their extraordinary abilities to protect a world that despises and fears them, are challenged like never before and must face a perilous and unexpected new future. The animated relaunch has already received a second season renewal from Marvel Studios, and a third season is currently being considered internally.
