SDCC 2022: FIRST LOOK and details of X-Men ’97 animated series

July 22nd, 2022 by Marc Comments

We have a few details on the highly anticipated Marvel animated series X-Men ’97 from SDCC 2022.

The series, which picks up from the end of the classic 90s X-Men animated series will see new mutants, new stories and a fairly different world than we saw it last.

You can check out the first looks at it below.

At SDCC we learned that in the new series Magneto will now be the leader of the X-Men and on the new team will be Sunspot, Cable, Bishop and Nightcrawler, all pictured below.

The new series will include Rogue, Beast, Gambit, Jean Grey, Wolverine, Storm, Jubilee and Cyclops.

It was also revealed that season 2 – X-Men ’98? – has already been given the go-ahead.

This is one of the most highly anticipated shows from Disney+ in the next year or two as there are a lot of fans of the original series now all grown up and ready to see what comes next.

Are you one of them?

X-Men ’97 will arrive in fall 2023.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
