The creators of the X-Men animated series are giving it some serious thought regarding bringing back this awesome animated series.
It has been over two decades that the 'X-Men: The Animated Series' wrapped up its five seasons run on Fox. As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, the creators behind a series that spanned most of the 1990s are currently working to put together a pitch for the team at Disney. The report mentions Larry Houston who said that the creator's goal is to continue right where the show ended. He said, "The one thing we'd like to do more than anything else is to continue where we left off."
The series had a total of 76 episodes for five seasons and it was also one of the first major cartoons to deal with serialized storytelling. Initially, it was funded by Saban Entertainment as Marvel was going through a bankruptcy at the time and Avi Ara, Stan Lee, Joseph Callimari, Winston Richard, and Eric S. Rollman served as executive producers.
As 'Dark Phoenix' has been released in the theaters, the future of 'X-Men' franchise is currently in limbo as Disney and Marvel Studios have yet to decide what to do with their newly acquired assets. Marvel studio boss Kevin Feige has previously also mentioned that it is going to take a long time before the X-Men make it into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
He said, "It’ll be a while. It’s all just beginning and the five-year plan that we’ve been working on, we were working on before any of that was set. So really it’s much more, for us, less about specifics of when and where [the X-Men will appear] right now and more just the comfort factor and how nice it is that they’re home. That they’re all back. But it will be a very long time.”
