Following the Fox/Disney merger; many fans have been wondering when Mutants will make their official appearance at Marvel Studios. While a live-action appearance is still unknown at this point, we might be seeing Charles Xavier and his X-Men on Disney’s streaming platform, albeit in animated form.
According to GWW, the team at Marvel will begin working on an animated series for the platform. The series is said to begin production sometime in 2023 so don’t expect it until 2024 at the earliest. The site goes on to talk about the unknowns surrounding the show. It’s unclear if head honcho Kevin Feige will oversee this new show or if it will connect to the MCU at all. The show could play out similar to the recent What If…? series, where animated alternate versions of MCU characters were depicted as being a part of the multiverse.
This might come as exciting news for fans of X-Men: The Animated Series from the 90s. The series has been hailed as the best iteration of the team outside of the comic books. Many fans have expressed excitement at the idea of a series for the team in order to flesh out character dynamics and tell the entirety of beloved stories from the comics (i.e. The Dark Phoenix Saga).
