Marvel Reportedly Considering New Animated Universe Following ‘X-Men ’97’ Success

Fans may be in store for a new Marvel universe! X-Men ’97 might have paved the way for a new world of connected stories on Disney Plus.

X-Men ’97 recently came out to universal praise. The series is lauded as the perfect example of how to revive an animated series after years of dormancy, and is even considered the best thing Marvel has ever put onto Disney Plus by some fans.

The success of X-Men ’97 hasn’t gone unnoticed by Marvel Studios. According to a new report by The Cosmic Circus, the studio is considering creating a shared animated universe consisting of Marvel’s other cancelled shows from the 90s, all of which would revolve around the successful X-Men ’97.

Marvel’s Forgotten Gems Of The 90s

X-Men ’97 is a revival of the wildly popular X-Men: The Animated Series that aired back in the 90s. However, it isn’t the only animated series Marvel was producing at that time. There’s more than a handful to choose from when positing the idea of a shared universe.

The one show whose revival has the chance to rival the success of X-Men ’97 would be Spider-Man: The Animated Series. The show was widely popular, and also left on an infamous cliffhanger rivaling the likes of X-Men: The Animated Series, making it the perfect candidate for a Disney Plus reboot.

Iron Man, Silver Surfer, The Incredible Hulk, and the Fantastic Four all had their own animated shows in the 90s as well. While none were as long-lived or beloved as the two mentioned above, they could serve as great filler to make a truly connected and lived-in Marvel animaed universe.

Stay tuned for the latest news on X-Men ’97 and the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
