Expected Cast and Characters
For X-Men '97, several of the original voice performers are returning. For those who watched in the 1990s, the return of Cal Dodd as Wolverine will come as a welcome relief. Lenore Zann is still Rogue, George Buza is back as Hank “Beast” McCoy, Alison Sealy-Smith is back as Ororo “Storm” Munroe, Adrian Hough is Nightcrawler, Chris Potter is providing the voice of Gambit, Catherine Disher will return as Jean Grey, and Christopher Britton.
In addition, some well-known actors are attached in unspecified roles. Along with a lengthy number of others, Jeff Bennett and Jennifer Hale have both played unidentified roles. Oddly, Jubilee's performance has still not been revealed. To learn more, we'll have to wait.
The Plot: What We Can Expect From 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. Yes, 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.
Naturally, 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. Right now, there are several possibilities available.
Is There Any Official Trailer of X Men 97?
For X-Men '97, no trailer has been made available. Marvel fans won't probably see anything from the series for a while because it was unveiled during the 2021 Disney+ Day event. However, a release in 2023 does suggest that work is already under way. Till then, enjoy the trailer given below.

Does X-Men From 1997 Fit Into the MCU?
According to current information, X-Men '97 does not occur during the primary continuity of the MCU. But it's debatable what this finally signifies.
Professor X and the mutants are proven to exist in some reality, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness shows that their appearance is similar to that of the '90s show.
X-Men '97 is almost probably included in the MCU if you count the universe, but not in any way that has anything to do with the primary plot.
