Earlier this week, Marvel Studios/Marvel Animation distracted us all from Madame Web's failings by releasing the first trailer for X-Men '97. Now, we have a new batch of stills from the Disney+ series (via Toonado.com) along with a banner featuring the X-Men: The Animated Series revival's lead heroes.

The mutants are standing tall upon a downed Sentinel but there's no sign of the team's new leader, Magneto. As for the stills, they primarily highlight key moments from the sneak peek which, if you missed it, can be watched here.

During a recent interview with Empire Online, X-Men '97 showrunner Beau DeMayo shared new insights into many of the show's leads, including Gambit and Rogue ("That's our one true pairing"), Bishop ("A man out of time, wondering what his future is"), and Storm ("Where is the room for her humanity?")

As for Beast, DeMayo added, "He's the guy who’s always going to say the right thing, even if he’s quoting somebody else. He’s always going to have a solution. It may not be the perfect solution, but he’s going to try very, very hard to fix the scientific problem of the day."

Take a look at the new X-Men '97 banner and stills below.


"X-Men'97 revisits the iconic era of the 1990s as The X-Men, a band of mutants who use their uncanny gifts to protect a world that hates and fears them, are challenged like never before, forced to face a dangerous and unexpected new future," reads a brief synopsis. 

Cal Dodd (Wolverine), Alison Sealy-Smith (Storm), George Buza (Beast), Adrian Hough (Nightcrawler), Lenore Zann (Rogue), and Chris Britton (Mister Sinister) will all reprise their X-Men: The Animated Series roles in X-Men '97.

However, Catherine Disher, the original Jean Grey, is now voicing Dr. Valerie Cooper. Chris Potter, the original Gambit, is now playing Cable. Lawrence Bayne, the original Cable, is now playing X-Cutioner. Ron Rubin, the original Morph, is now playing President Robert Edward Kelly. Alyson Court, the original Jubilee, will take on the role of Abscissa.

Ray Chase is the new Cyclops, and he'll be joined by Jennifer Hale as Jean Grey, AJ LoCascio as Gambit, Holly Chou as Jubilee, JP Karliak as Morph, Isaac Robinson-Smith as Bishop, Matthew Waterson as Magneto, Ross Marquand as Professor X, Giu Augustini as Sunspot, Gil Birmingham as Forge, and Eric Bauza as the Sentinels. 

Beau DeMayo serves as head writer; episodes are directed by Jake Castorena, Chase Conley and Emi Yonemura. Featuring music by The Newton Brothers, the series is executive produced by Brad Winderbaum, Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso and DeMayo.

X-Men '97 is set to premiere on Disney+ on March 20.

Pregnant Jean Grey… 🤔
SonOfAGif - 2/18/2024, 8:24 PM
@Odekahn - Cyclops gave her the business
comicfan100 - 2/18/2024, 8:37 PM
@Odekahn - It's probably Madelyn
harryba11zack - 2/18/2024, 8:53 PM
@Odekahn - As long as shes not fighting on the frontlines like that dumb shit they did with with Spider woman then it's K.
JonAwesome - 2/18/2024, 9:11 PM
@comicfan100 - that’s what I was thinking! Bring on Madelyne Pryor!
lazlodaytona - 2/18/2024, 9:50 PM
@Odekahn - Question is: Who's the father?

dragon316 - 2/18/2024, 10:51 PM
@Odekahn - who will be baby cable , hope or someone we don’t expect
Omegaphoenix - 2/20/2024, 1:04 AM
@comicfan100 - Madelyn is Jean's clone. Not her kid. Cable is Madelyn's son. So that's probably Madelyn (posing as Jean) pregnant with Cable.
comicfan100 - 2/20/2024, 10:23 AM
@Omegaphoenix - Dude, no, I meant that's probably Madelyn pregnant and the real Jean with Sinister or something. The Madelyn merchandise has her with a baby. I know Jean eventually has a child in the future, Rachel.

I really don't like this cgi looking BS. Why tf can't they hand draw anything?! I'll watch it because it was my childhood but this art direction is atrocious. I'm surprised nobody make an article on how the usual clowns are mad they made Morph non binary lmao
vectorsigma - 2/18/2024, 8:45 PM
@bobevanz - i agree.

Disney with the cost cutting by not making it hand drawn.

This early and they needed to market and announce that morph is non binary? Good indication this will not be good eith another pandering show.

There goes our childhood favorite
harryba11zack - 2/18/2024, 8:55 PM
@bobevanz - It's cheaper, they keep pushing that same sh1t with animes but the tech and quality just isn't there yet.
moanandgroan - 2/18/2024, 8:56 PM
@bobevanz - to be fair, morph is utterly useless. Especially against a sentinel. Surprised he gets a seat on the x-jet, I'd be making him the school janitor.
comicfan100 - 2/18/2024, 10:42 PM
@vectorsigma - Well, good thing you're an adult now, I'm assuming.
vectorsigma - 2/18/2024, 10:47 PM
@comicfan100 - yeah, it is good to be an adult. You wont gobble up mediocre stuff without question anymore.

I am leaving a small chance that this might be good, to be fair
vectorsigma - 2/18/2024, 10:48 PM
@harryba11zack - theyve done a good job with those star wars shorts though
comicfan100 - 2/18/2024, 10:58 PM
@vectorsigma - I'm just seeing a lot of people make a big deal out of very insignificant things like Morph's sexuality. That shouldn't matter, especially with the X-Men of all characters. Criticize the art and animation if you want because I feel as though those concerns are valid.
vectorsigma - 2/18/2024, 11:40 PM
@comicfan100 - you said it yourself, it is insignificant. The fact that Disney had to go out of their way and spread this info around, it means it important to them. I didnt even know this until someone posted it here last week.

It was good then when it didnt matter but here they are now.
SonOfAGif - 2/18/2024, 8:51 PM
You know who would make a good gambit? Dylan O'Brien.

They really butchered Rogue. Took her curves away and made her face ugly.
marvel72 - 2/18/2024, 9:41 PM
More importantly.... Where is Rogues ass gone and why is Morph Non Binary now?
SonOfAGif - 2/18/2024, 9:45 PM
@marvel72 - They had to reduce it because the enemies would hear her approaching with those things clapping.
marvel72 - 2/18/2024, 10:10 PM
@SonOfAGif - OK I will let you have that one.
AnthonyVonGeek - 2/18/2024, 10:47 PM
@marvel72 - they visually turned Rogue into Dylan Mulvaney
HashTagSwagg - 2/19/2024, 1:01 AM
@marvel72 - Rogue absorbed Brie Larson's ass.
lazlodaytona - 2/18/2024, 9:48 PM
Kinda looks like Wolverine gets his claws powered up by Gambit. Anyone else notice this?
Never dawned on me that could happen, but it does make sense.
marvel72 - 2/18/2024, 10:12 PM
@lazlodaytona - But would that mean Wolverines claws explode.

Gambit charges a playing card and it explodes on impact.
lazlodaytona - 2/18/2024, 10:14 PM
@marvel72 - but a piece of paper playing card is not indestructible adamantium claws. just a theory.
PatientXero - 2/18/2024, 10:18 PM
@marvel72 @lazlodaytona
I would think that the claws wouldn’t explode, but his hands sure seem like they would get damaged. Sure they’d grow back after, but maybe not the best strategy.
lazlodaytona - 2/19/2024, 7:44 AM
@PatientXero - I'm definitely going with you on that take! best of both mine and @marvel72 's statements
xfan320 - 2/18/2024, 10:14 PM
Some of the dialogue in the recent trailer has me a little concerned... Cal Dodd sadly doesn't sound the same anymore as Wolverine (Way too deep now fsr), and Storm's lines sound like they were recorded over the phone or inside a can 😅

That new Cyclops voice tho... 👏 spot on

Hoping that's just a few instances in the trailer and everything will be okay story/quality-wise
PatientXero - 2/18/2024, 10:21 PM
Morph looks like he’s gonna be a way to slide in the transgender stuff. I’m betting he’ll change between being male and female a lot. Idk what other reason there’d be to change his standard appearance. Not a bad character to use for that, I guess.
DarthAlgar - 2/19/2024, 1:20 AM
@PatientXero - Research one of the writers.

Then it will all make sense. 🙄
PatientXero - 2/19/2024, 10:21 AM
@DarthAlgar - Could you be more specific?
NGFB - 2/19/2024, 11:30 AM
Ugg. I'm not 12 and won't watch this awful animation. Why not get with the times and do something like Arcane, Blue Eye Samurai, Spider-Man, etc.
