X-Men 97 Release Date: Is It Renewed or Cancelled?

After 25 years, X-Men: The Animated Series is coming back to TV thanks to Disney Plus. The TV show is a direct continuation of the beloved five-season show that kids who liked comic books and superheroes in the 1990s loved.

Yes, this means that Wolverine, Jean Grey, Magneto, Cyclops, Jubilee, Beast, and other well-known X-Men characters will be fighting the good fight in their ’90s clothes. This often leads to problems, like when Magneto tries to rule the world with mutant powers and Professor X’s smart kids try to make it easier for people without mutant powers to live together.

The animated show looks like it will be both a trip down memory lane and a revival of a sci-fi show for a modern audience. What will happen to the MCU when X-Men 1997 comes out? Is everyone who was in the original cast still there? And really, how will it continue the story of the mutants?

What is the Release Date for X-Men 97?

The plot of X-Men 1997 is unknown, however, we do know that it is a direct sequel to the 1992 series. This implies that we’ll find out what transpired after Magneto and the mutants bid Professor Xavier farewell.

The obedient leader left everyone he knew and loved to wonder whether he would ever return by travelling to the planet Shi’Ar with Lilandra. Yeah, the Poochie joke from The Simpsons finished the cartoon. Such an odd anticlimax had the advantage of leaving plenty of open ends for the authors to explore later.

X-Men 97 release date

Therefore, the health of Professor X is of utmost importance, particularly in light of the power vacuum he’s left behind. Recent announcements made at San Diego Comic-Con indicate that Magneto will take Professor X’s place as leader of the X-Men and fill the hole left by him.

Sunspot, Cable, Bishop, and Nightcrawler will also be joining the squad, which is fortunate given that they will be dealing with Mister Sinister and his mutant experimentation, the persistent threat posed by the Sentinels, and the Hellfire club.

Expect all of these, along with any other themes and ideas the writers can work into X-Men ’97. Maybe there will be more Phalanx or an Avengers vs. X-Men narrative. At now, there are several possibilities available.
