I have never been as frustrated week after week watching Ultimate Spider-Man as I have the new show. The new show is dreary and boring. Even when Ultimate Spider-Man was busy sucking up the joint it held my attention.
I guess we both had vastly different experiences watching the two shows. I had the complete opposite reaction, especially with early USM :p.

Hopefully whatever new X-Men cartoon we get is a step up from both shows (and Assemble).

Here is an interesting rumor:


I am not sure how a continuation of the 90s era X-Men would work, would they use the same animation style, the same group of voice actors from Toronto (I do not think Lenore Zann does much voice acting nowadays, she seems to be successfully Canadian politician), pick up where the animated series left off? This seems an odd choice, but hey we have had some Timm style cartoons lately, so 90s nostalgia is a thing now.

I mean, I wish them the best of luck even if I don't think it has much of a chance of happening.

If they barely seem interested in acknowledging or representing Earth's Mightiest Heroes, I don't think they're going to be much more interested in reviving an X-Men show from back in the 90's.

When Earth's Mightiest Heroes was on, I kind of pictured that a possible crossover might not even be with the WATX team, but with the 90s team. It was for no other reason than seeing the two shows back to back on Saturday nights, when Disney XD had that late night Marvel block, and realizing how much the two shows evoked the same emotions out of me. They both did such a good job at introducing the teams, and what they were about, to young viewers while also adapting classic stories for modern television in a very entertaining way. I just love both series immensely.

I don't think my nostalgia for the 90s show will ever go away, and I do hope that Marvel Entertainment is actually open to referencing it or honoring it now. I just don't think we've seen any behavior from them that would suggest that they'd ever be open to restarting that old series. I do think that it would be pretty damned cool if they greenlit a movie, with a nice little budget, that brought back old crew members to tell a story that could stand on its own while also hitting those nostalgia feels. I would be so open to that.

It's funny, but out of the past X-Men animated series, I think TAS had the most proper conclusion, so I don't really see why they would continue things from where it left off. Of course, I would still watch a revival or continuation if it's produced, but I doubt much if anything will come out of this. Would be interesting if they kept the same aesthetic from the show, probably more people would complain about the quality of Marvel animation. Could be nice if they kept the re-designs from the last few episodes of the show. But, I think I'm getting a bit carried away, since as I said I don't think this will lead to anything.

(If nothing else, we might have more to talk about in the Rejected Show Pitches thread, providing more details about this leak online. :p)

X-Men TAS is easily the best X-Men cartoon to date and one of the best Marvel cartoons period (and I'm saying this as someone who didn't grow-up with it), and it had couple of unresolved plot-threads (the resurrection of Apocalypse, Mr. Sinister and Magneto's army, just to name a few), but I'm not sure that it's screaming for a revival.

Marvel has made an X-Men calendar for 2020 with artwork resembling the designs from the 90's cartoon.

This probably means at least one of the following.
  1. Marvel is making a revival or reboot of the 90's cartoon.
  2. Marvel made the calendar for nostalgia purposes or took advantage of Disney's purchase of Fox.
  3. Marvel is ashamed of Wolverine and the X-Men and wants to pull an infinity gauntlet on it.

I think they've definitely been trying to use the nostalgia of past X-Men glory to their advantage as they're starting this rebuilding stage.

Usually the Marvel merch I notice in stores is retro or MCU based, so they'll fall back on retro for now to at least get the attention of past fans.

Makes you kind of wondre what era or design style they'd base a modern X-Men cartoon off of...I guess the same could probably be said for the FF :ack:.

You're joking, right? Wolverine and the X-Men is literally the best Marvel animated series. Why would Marvel be ashamed of it?
Well, the original X-Men cartoon has the advantage of being the first of the three cartoons, has spawned memes such as the one where Wolverine punches Cyclops, and the scene where Storm shouts “I SHALL MEET YOU AT THE MONORAIL!!!”, and even a few YouTube Poops while Wolverine and the X-Men is considered to be forgettable and boring due to it's slow pacing and boring nature, and I couldn’t see a single YouTube Poop of it, though from what I’ve heard, the second season would’ve been better.

This is the first year I watched Disney Channel frequently since 2006 mostly because of Big City Greens, Amphibia, Ducktales, and Miraculous.

The teaser is good. The comments saying "Release The Snyder Cut" are not.
Is the concept of good scheduling just dead at this point, I'm looking at PlutoTv and most of the time they just got the same show on repeat.
