Fans have been clamoring for a continuation of the popular 90s Marvel animated series, X-Men: The Animated Series. With Disney+ now at the forefront of streaming, it could be the perfect place for a revival. In fact, there have been rumors that the creators pitched something to Disney, and now one of them has confirmed talks have taken place.
The series producer Larry Houston was recently on Wizard World podcast and he confirmed that talks with Disney have occurred:
“We’ve had talks, but that’s about it. We’ve made conversation and it’s up to them to make the decision, but we’ve let them know that we’re all available for whatever they want to do in the future.”
X-Men: The Animated Series ran for five seasons, from 1992 through 1997. The series followed Professor Charles Xavier and his band of courageous mutants as they strike back against corrupt and bigoted government agencies as well as mutant extremist Magneto in this animated series based on the Marvel Comics characters.
The core team featured Wolverine, Cyclops, Jean Grey, Rogue, Storm, Beast, Gambit, Jubilee, and the aforementioned Charles Xavier aka Professor X.
The original series is currently streaming on Disney+ and is reportedly one of the most popular series on the streamer. Avatars of the characters are also available to use on your Disney+ profile. Fans are looking for new content during these tough times and a revival of the popular X-Men series could be just the thing.
