The original 90s X-Men show, (also known as X-Men: The Animated Series) ran for five seasons back in the 1990s.
It aired from 1992 to 1997.
This series will mark the first involvement of the X-Men under the Marvel Studios banner following the Disney takeover of 20th Century Fox.
With the MCU now opening up the multiverse, the possibilities for what this could for the future of the X-Men are endless.
With the X-Men being introduced to the MCU in live action, does this mean we’ll soon get an announcement about live action X-Men in the MCU?
We’ll be keeping our fingers, and adamantium claws, crossed.
X-Men: The Animated Series is available to stream on Disney+ now.
