Is X-Men ‘97 Connected To The MCU?
“X-Men ’97” is set to debut on Disney+ on March 20, 2024, and will continue the “X-Men” animated series that ran on Fox Kids from 1992 to 1997.
Disney acquired Fox in 2019, which held the rights to Marvel’s X-Men characters. This has left some wondering if the new series will bring the beloved mutant team to the MCU.
However, during a Q&A session on Instagram, series creator Bruce DeMayo responded to a question about its connection to the MCU. “We are our own thing,” he said.
While the MCU has long used interconnectivity as part of its brand, hopefully, “X-Men ’97” will be able to remain a separate, unique entity in Marvel’s growing multiverse saga.
