X-MEN '97's Rotten Tomatoes Score Has Been Revealed And It Sets A New Marvel Studios Record X-MEN '97's Rotten Tomatoes Score Has Been Revealed And It Sets A New Marvel Studios Record

The review embargo for X-Men '97 lifted a little earlier today, and that's led to an unprecedented Rotten Tomatoes score for a Marvel Studios title. You can find more details on that after the jump...

The reviews are in for X-Men '97 and Marvel Studios has a new highest-rated title on Rotten Tomatoes. As we write this, more than two dozen verdicts have been counted, and the X-Men: The Animated Series has a perfect 100% score! 

It's since been "Certified Fresh" and, while it's certainly possible someone will chime in with a negative verdict in the coming weeks, this is a fantastic start for the Marvel Animation project. 

The Critics Consensus reads, "Pulling off the x-traordinary feat of staying true to its beloved predecessor while charting a path forward for the franchise, X-Men '97 is simply x-cellent."

Those are some impressive puns, but they summarise the show's strengths nicely. In our review earlier today, 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."

Did you enjoy the first two episodes of X-Men '97?

"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. 

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

@CoHost - girl is almost as bad as Gal. Swear comic book casting for women are never good. Dudes go off looks and that’s it. Hollywood is full of beautiful actresses who can act, We should never be in a universe where Gal or Eiza are casted as the big screen Diana Prince.

Gonna be honest, i was skeptical, maybe even a lot but damn...shit was absolute kino, yo.

Totally won me over, the humour was absolutely there! Which is important just as much as the voices!
But the storyline? The themes? Phew lad.

Idgaf what the writer did in his personal time on onlyfans or some shit but he nailed it here, firing him could've been a mistake.

First episode was fine but the second episode really sets the tone. Only problem I have is with the jerky animation. The art style is pretty but it feels like it limits the animation. You can tell they make more of an effort in the big fight scenes. I dunno I have to get used to it. It reminds me of the animation from the animaniacs/tiny toons reboots.
The new guy playing Cyclops is so good!
Wolverine sounds off. Hes missing that whisperiness quality it used to have. I know aging is a thing but just sounds like the magic is missing in his voice.
Can’t wait to see more.

Marvel Studios not even close to Dead or Re-Booting.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe, spanning 33 movies and counting, is the Biggest Movie Franchise in History, having earned more than $30 billion worldwide.

@AllsGood - Seriously man what is your deal? Do you work for them or something? Nothing wrong with brand enthusiasm but you seem like you're on their payroll

@DarthOmega - I'm pretty sure their deal is to trigger people and based on the comments I've seen they are pretty successful

@Evansly - Triggered? Ffs. I hoped we could leave that word alone. Either way. NO one is triggered by his comments. At best confused

@bobevanz - I basically treat them like those End is Near solicitors on street corners - I see them, I get what they are doing and I ignore them

DarthOmega - 3/20/2024, 5:15 PM
@marvel72 - It's just that his comments seem less like comments and more like a Disney press release.
Evansly
Evansly - 3/20/2024, 5:16 PM
@DarthOmega - Sorry for using a terminology that triggered you. Dumb dumb joke ha but yeah that's probably a more apt explanation. They spread confusion and frustration to various users here

@DarthOmega - My guess is he has bought Disney stock and he's trying his best to spread some positive word about them. It's also funny how he can't seem to formulate a thought of his own. All he blurts out are either copy/pastes from other articles and box office numbers, or a single mention of 'Disney' or 'Marvel Studios' with a semi-fitting positive GIF.

He's honestly my favourite bot !

@JustAWaffle - Being Positive don't make someone an Internet Trolls

If you've been on the internet for any period of time, you've likely run into a troll at some point. An internet troll is someone who makes intentionally inflammatory, rude, or upsetting statements online to elicit strong emotional responses in people or to steer the conversation off-topic.

They can come in many forms. Most trolls do this for their own amusement, but other forms of trolling are done to push a specific agenda.
JustAWaffle
JustAWaffle - 3/20/2024, 6:05 PM
@AllsGood - Your doing the same thing, only with a positive angle as you go about it.

Not telling you to stop. Just want you to be aware of how it comes off.
