Jeremy Slater, head writer for the recent Moon Knight Disney+ show, hyped the upcoming X-Men ’97 show in an interview with Comicbook.com’s Adam Barnhardt.
“Beau DeMayo, who’s doing X-Men ’97, is one of the best writers I have ever worked with in my life. He’s an absolute genius. And the other day, we had our writers’ dinner, and he was telling me some of the things they have planned for X-Men ’97. I can’t say a single thing, except you guys have no idea how excited you should be for that show.”Jeremy Slater
DeMayo was a contributor in the writer’s room for Moon Knight under Slater, who went on to say it is “going to be f—ing awesome. That’s all I can say about it. But the stuff he was saying — every episode — it was blowing my mind of what he was sort of pitching. So you guys have no idea how excited you should be for that show.”
The show, which will be the first official X-Men content in the MCU, is rumored to pick up directly where the original series left off. Excitement for the project is growing following Patrick Stewart’s Charles Xavier returning in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. As of now, there is not a known release date for X-Men ’97.
