With X-Men '97's premiere date still a mystery to us, it appears the show's apparent delay has done nothing to stop merchandise from slowly finding its way into stores.

On that, the main members of the team receive the spotlight, including Storm, Cyclops, Wolverine, Rogue, and Gambit. Whether this means they're now the protagonists of this series or simply the characters who will be front and centre in marketing and merchandise material remains to be seen. 

They all look fantastic, anyway, and Storm's design is one we know many of you will appreciate. 

"Marvel Studios presents 'X-Men '97,'" a recently released synopsis reads, "in which 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 and are forced to face a dangerous and unexpected new future."

Earlier this year, Wolverine voice actor Cal Dodd confirmed he's already working on season 2 of X-Men '97, and one insider has claimed the plan is for the show to run for a total of 4. That's very exciting news and suggests the X-Men: The Animated Series follow-up will remain on our screens for the foreseeable future. 

However, before we get too ahead of ourselves, getting an official update on where things stand with the sequel series would be nice! 

We had expected X-Men '97 to premiere on Disney+ this year, but work on Marvel Studios' animated offerings appears to have ground to a halt, with the fate of this show, What If...?, Marvel Zombies, and Spider-Man: Freshman Year now a mystery to us.

Going back to this team of mutant, and they will, of course, eventually be rebooted in a live-action project. X-Men '97 seems like a great way to familiarise many fans with the team before they join the MCU, especially as Fox's movies are (thankfully) becoming a distant memory.
