This Wednesday, Marvel Studios will release the first chapter of "Tolerance Is Extinction," X-Men '97's three-part finale. Following the shocking deaths of Gambit and Magneto (though we've since learned the latter survived), the stakes couldn't be any higher for our mutant heroes.

Bastion plans to kick off a war between humans and mutants, with an army of Prime Sentinels ready to do his bidding. 

Today, Marvel Studios has released a final trailer for X-Men '97 setting the stage for what's to come. While it's mostly comprised of familiar footage from previous episodes, there are also some exciting teases about what's next. 

That includes the return of Storm, Jubilee and Sunspot being pursued by angry humans, Jean showing off her impressive abilities, and the X-Jet being pursued by Basion's human/robot hybrids. 

However, a moment we're sure many of you will appreciate comes when Cyclops presents Cable with his own X-Men uniform, only to be met with disappointment from his son. It's then he wonders whether Nathan expected "black leather," an unmistakable shot at the divisive costumes featured in 20th Century Fox's X-Men movies. 

After all, we're sure you'll remember Scott Summers asking Wolverine whether he expected yellow spandex when he was presented with a generic black uniform.

Showrunner Beau DeMayo has also taken to Twitter/X to share an updated list of X-Men: The Animated Series episodes fans should watch before X-Men '97's finale. Those are "One Man's Worth," "Sanctuary," "Descent," and "The Final Decision."

He later added, "I would give you the comic issues to read - including my all-time favorite single issue of any [X-Men] comic ever - but that would spoil several surprises."

Check out X-Men '97's final trailer in the players below (via Toonado.com). 

In our review of the show shortly before it launched on Disney+, we concluded by saying, "A triumphant return for X-Men: The Animated Series, X-Men '97 is an eXtraordinary epic which, while a little overreliant on nostalgia, should satisfy fans of the original show and serve as an eXcellent entry point for newcomers."

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.

The first seven episodes of X-Men '97 are now streaming on Disney+ with new instalments following weekly.

We've been f*cking with them for the past 24 years, 'maniac.

Get rekt.😄

@Doomsday8888 - *You’ve been [frick]ing with them for 24 years, but just look at your display pic. You love a shitty adaptation.

And get off this pussy shit and @ me, hoe

Racists f*cks like you don't even understand the meaning of X-Men and what they stand for, once again, get f*cked bitch. :)

Aside from Logan, Charles, and Xavier, pretty much everyone else was wasted.
FireandBlood - 4/29/2024, 2:20 PM
@Doomsday8888 - You’re projecting, buddy. After all you’ve already established you don’t like black people, and just look at you right now, coming to this thread trying to start some shit without the backbone to outright address the person you’re trying to start shit with.

A proper, thoroughbred waste man 😂
FireandBlood - 4/29/2024, 2:22 PM
@MCUKnight11 - 12 movies and only 3 characters got an arc. Pathetic. This 30 min show has done more with the characters in 6 weeks than Fox did in 24 years.
Doomsday8888 - 4/29/2024, 2:23 PM
Black folks can be racists too, just like you, so of course i put em in the same basket, keep seething tho!

I don't care if i'm the only one who will call you out but then again...people have quickly gone tired of your bs and how you always bring the race-card, ya know, being the racist f*ck that you are, it's cool tho, we ain't afraid of your kind!
FireandBlood - 4/29/2024, 2:38 PM
@Doomsday8888 - “we ain't afraid of your kind!”

Yes you are. That’s why you hate us. ✊🏽

@MCUKnight11 - nah, both magnetos, BEAST(Kelsey Grammer), Victor (Liev Schreiber) AND NIGHTcrawler(Alan Cumming) were great.

@FireandBlood - You racist?
JDL - 4/29/2024, 2:56 PM
@MCUKnight11 - You aren't going to ever get more than three characters done decent in any movie. It's the nature of the beast. To do what you want would require a series with a lot of episodes and multiple seasons.
DrReedRichards - 4/29/2024, 2:57 PM
@JDL -

But we're not talking about a single movie here. In both eras, the focus was almost exclusively on Logan, Charles, and Erik. The rest of the cast were cameos at worst, support at best.

@FireandBlood - I literally just watched the first three yesterday for the last time lol. X-Men is like a 6, X2 a 7.5 and X3 a [frick]ing -900 lol
bobevanz - 4/29/2024, 4:15 PM
@DrReedRichards - like the American accent Colossus, or three different Jubilees, two different Shadowcat's or a document with some names lol

@Doomsday8888 - I love watching you die on this hill.

@DrReedRichards - X-Men movies and Avenger's movies share similar setups in the:"a few leads and a lot of smaller parts" department. But the Avenger's are group movies to begin with and they follow 3 or more solo efforts while the X-Men start as a group movie with no solo's preceding them.

Imo in order to develop more X-Men characters you would need either smaller and different groups or actual solo shots. The latter is a mega risk and won't ever be seriously considered for a major motion picture imo. The former could possibly happen if all the planets align; low cost, casting that fans want and which works, and a story that resonates. As always YMMV.

Otherwise you end up with the approach that Fox did.
DrReedRichards - 4/30/2024, 6:35 AM
@JDL -

On one hand, I agree with each franchise's crossover movies having similar structure. But on the other hand, the MCU chose to focus on each character with their own respective movies as well. Fox instead chose to keep the team at their focus, by emphasizing only on two or three of the entire cast. Point is, they could have focused on a different mutant in each X-Men movie, but they did not.
DrReedRichards - 4/30/2024, 6:49 AM
@bobevanz -

Don't forget the 3 different Strykers.
JDL - 5/1/2024, 6:19 AM
@DrReedRichards - What you suggest would do a fair bit less box office and that's if you keep the frequency at one movie every three years. More than that and the box office would get really bad. And with 800 or so fewer theaters due to Covid that pushes things even further into "too dang risky" territory.

Cute, i guess Cable is team Jackman tho, lel.
HeraldNumber7 - 4/29/2024, 2:14 PM
i still cannot get over the fact that they fired this guy. not only for the great work this has turned out to be, but his investment in the fandom is dope too. this kind of engagement is sorely needed on the film side as well.
Doomsday8888 - 4/29/2024, 2:19 PM
His doing more in terms of marketing than the dudes over at Diseny/Marvel, that's fosho.
IAmAHoot - 4/29/2024, 2:25 PM
@HeraldNumber7 - My initial thought was that they may hire him back after some time (like with Gunn on Guardians). But given that there was no public outcry because no one knows why he was fired specifically, and given how long it takes to make the show, not likely, unless they get wise and realize how much people love his story.
HermanM - 4/29/2024, 2:17 PM
Haha good. [frick] you, FoX-men. I've waited decades for the Singer-verse and its influence to reach its end.

Fox X-Men were shite.
soberchimera - 4/29/2024, 2:34 PM
First X-Men was good, X2 was fantastic, First Class was great, and DOFP, Deadpool, & Logan were phenomenal. All I've mentioned are way better than 2/3rds of the MCU offerings.
DrReedRichards - 4/29/2024, 2:48 PM
@soberchimera -

The best of Fox's X-Men is almost up to par with the best of the MCU, but Fox's worst is way, waaayyy worse than bottom tier MCU.
soberchimera - 4/29/2024, 2:56 PM
@DrReedRichards - Still haven't seen Dark Phoenix or New Mutants, but The Last Stand and X-Men: Origins Wolverine are masterpieces compared to She-Hulk and Secret Invasion and I would put the former two on par with Black Widow, Love and Thunder, and Eternals.
TheMetaMan - 4/29/2024, 3:00 PM
@soberchimera - Spoken like a true prodigy. A person of culture. Yes the X-men films you listed are consummate pieces of comicbook entertainment and cinema and those movies are more memorable then half of the MCU content.
DrReedRichards - 4/29/2024, 3:04 PM
@soberchimera -

I've yet to watch New Mutants either, but Dark Phoenix was unwatchable. As for X3 and Origins, I feel like that's your nostalgia talking, because especially Wolverine's 1st is even worse than Dark Phoenix, and nowhere near as tolerable (at the very least) as She-Hulk or Secret Invasion.

And I'll die on the hill of Eternals being underappreciated, so let's please keep it out of the same conversation with mid forgetfulness like Black Widow or Taika's turd Love & Thunder.
GhostDog - 4/29/2024, 3:19 PM
@TheMetaMan - There are 44 mcu films and shows. I can name 3-5 films per phase that are more memorable than the fox films. Emphasis on memorable. Logan, DOFP, First Class and X2 I will give you, no doubt as being more memorable than half the MCU, But even at its best, the fox films are not as indelible as the mcu's best offerings: Infinity War, Civil War, Endgame, TWS, and Avengers. I would pit these four against Fox's four best. I would argue these are the most culturally ineffaceable MCU offerings. All CONSUMATE pieces of comic book media that are all more referenced, re-visited, and engraved in the zeitgeist than anything Fox X-Men did; at its worst or best.

The first X-Men has a nostalgia hold on me but it has real issues. Its propelled by an amazing cast doing a lot of heavy lifting.

@GhostDog - *pit these 5 films
