Prima facie were present, where DeMayo teased something about the plot of the Disney+ series. According to Daimyo, X-Men ’97 Season 5 begins several months after the events, which state the following:
Well, we’re picking up about several months after Professor X left Earth after being shot by Henry Gyrich and had to return to the Shi’ar homeworld to be with Lilandra. And what’s happening is that the assassination attempt has given rise to this wave of sympathy for mutants and understanding.
“And things are, despite humanity’s friends still having their mullets and all getting up in it, things are really starting to look up for mutants. And it’s kind of going to come to a head and say our X-Men prompts to, ‘What does our future hold for us? We weren’t expecting it.’ And you’re going to have Cyclops and Storm who really want to fulfill the dream. And they’ve recruited Morph and Bishop to actually be full-time members of the team.
… other X-Men like Jean and they would, wouldn’t they, pairing Gambit and Rogue, begin to question, ‘Maybe there is a life… We’re fighting for this life of acceptance, what? Let’s just go out there and enjoy it for once, shall we?’ And then, of course, someone shows up who shouldn’t show up and it’s Magneto, who also kind of feels like, ‘You know, Professor X, he did a solid job for the mutant race. I’m going to try to follow in his footsteps. I’m going to try to be a force of good for the mutant race.’
But then, of course, as the X-Men are looking to the future and, we’re going to be talking a lot about, ‘How do you face the future? How do the X-Men do what they’ve been telling humanity to do for decades, which is embrace the future?’
Everything We Know About The X-Men And Mutants In The MCU
Whereas X-Men ’97 Not tied to the MCU, this is probably just a taste of Marvel Studios’ upcoming plans. Kevin Feige revealed at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 that mutants are definitely on their way to the MCU. Even though a solo project has yet to be revealed, they have already started planting the seeds for the arrival of the X-Men. At this point, a single movie or TV show probably won’t happen until Phase 7.
According to She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, Wolverine is already in the MCU. is it going to happen or not deadpool 3 Pay off remains to be seen. However, the MCU has already introduced other mutants beyond the X-Men. In 2022, the MCU introduces both Ms. Marvel and Namor as mutants in the franchise. Despite Not Being Earth-616’s Professor X, Patrick Stewart Played A Variant In The Last One doctor strange film.
With the MCU getting deeper into the multiverse saga, time will tell how the X-Men come into play after Phase 6. It seems highly unlikely that any major X-Men characters will appear before Phase 7. but luckily, X-Men ’97 The MCU will fill that void before the team gets its proper introduction in live-action.
