We still don't know what exactly led to Marvel Studios parting ways with X-Men '97 showrunner Beau DeMayo shortly before the series launched.

Unsurprisingly, the writer has now confirmed that he's in the dark about Marvel's season 2 plans and where the series goes from there. However, DeMayo also told fans on X that he had a five-season plan which seemingly included taking us to the "Age of Apocalypse."

Marvel Studios might be looking to stick with that, though if "creative differences" came into play, there are any number of directions X-Men '97 could head in. 

DeMayo also took the time to better explain Magneto's attack on Earth, explaining how the Master of Magnetism plans to make Earth suffer following the devastating attack on Genosha. 

Shortly before the Sentinels laid waste to the island, we saw The Watcher keeping a close eye on the festivities below, a surefire sign something huge was about to happen. 

Based on the design, it appears to be the same Watcher we've spent time with in What If...? However, X-Men: The Animated Series already featured its own version of Uatu and DeMayo says it was never his plan for this one to be the MCU's Variant. 

He also acknowledges that things might have changed since his departure and, if we had to hazard a guess, X-Men '97's Watcher is indeed meant to be the Jeffrey Wright version who has also popped up in Marvel Animation's I Am Groot.

X-Men '97 revisits the iconic era of the 1990s as The X-Men, a band of mutants who use their uncanny gifts to protect a world that hates and fears them, are challenged like never before, forced to face a dangerous and unexpected new future.

Nine episodes of X-Men '97 are now streaming on Disney+ with the finale set to drop next Wednesday.
