X Men ’97 Lead writer Beau DeMayo recently shared the one condition prospective crew members needed to meet in order to be considered for the Disney+ series.
DeMayo revealed his recruiting approach for the X-Men: The Animated Series revival during a question and answer session based on Instagram Story. “Me [line producer] he was the first employee, and he brought with him all the incredible talent that followed. my rule of thumb was you Dyed being a fan. There are no questions,” he said. “I’ve been on a show, namely sorcerer — where some of the writers were not [fans] or actively disliked the books and games, even actively mocking the source material. It is a recipe for disaster and poor morale. The litmus test of fandom checks egos and makes all the long nights worthwhile. You have to respect the work before you’re allowed to add to its legacy.”
DeMayo’s “fans only” policy seems to have paid off, yeah X Men ’97The character designs of are anything to go by. Marvel Studios unveiled the designs at San Diego Comic-Con 2022 and while some characters, like Magneto, are sporting new costumes, the overall aesthetic of the show is clearly based on that of X-Men: The Animated Series. That’s also not where the overlap between the original series and its Disney+ revival ends. Marvel Studios previously confirmed that voice actors Cal Dodd (Wolverine), Lenore Zann (Rogue), George Buza (Beast), Adrian Hough (Cannonball), Christopher Britton (Mister Sinister), Catherine Disher (Jean Grey), Chris Potter ( Gambit) and Alison Sealy-Smith (Storm) reprise their roles in X Men ’97with Jubilee actress Alyson Court also on board elsewhere unspecified.
Marvel spends a lot on the X-Men theme song
X Men ’97 it will even feature the same theme song as its predecessor after Marvel Studios went to great lengths to secure the rights to the iconic tune. “[The X-Men: The Animated Series theme song] It wasn’t necessarily a done deal when they were producing the new show,” explained series consultant Eric Lewald during a recent panel appearance. “The rights were all over the place. I think a secondary person had the rights to the music, so it was a negotiation for them. Obviously, you can’t do the new show without that song… But the guy who sold it knew the same thing, so I’m sure it was a very high price.”
Marvel Studios has already tested the X-Men: The Animated Series theme in two other productions, Doctor strange in the multiverse of madness Y mrs wonder, from the acquisition of the rights. This has fueled speculation that X Men ’97 is itself part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, something DeMayo has so far refused to confirm or deny.
X Men ’97 It doesn’t have a release date yet.
