Marvel’s X-Men ’97 Has a New Writer

Marvel has found a new writer for its acclaimed X-Men ’97 animated series—and they didn’t have to go far to find him. Deadline reports that Matthew Chauncey is set to write the third season of the series. He picks up the role from Beau DeMayo, who was head writer for the first season and the in-production second season.

Deadline notes that the second season’s scripts “have reportedly been revised,” but doesn’t specify whether Chauncey did the revising. Season three is, at this stage, in development.

This is not Chauncey’s first Marvel rodeo: He has been a producer, story editor, and writer on What If…? since its first season, and was also a writer on Ms. Marvel and is credited on IMDb as a “script doctor” on Thor: Love and Thunder. His non-Marvel credits are a podcast series called Self Center and the Guillermo del Toro-created animated series 3Below: Tales of Arcadia.

X-Men ’97 walks a pretty perfect line between vintage (it’s a revival of the ’90s series, after all) and modern sensibilities, and is both extremely charming and surprisingly affecting. Some of the voice cast from the original cartoon returned for the new series, including Alison Sealy-Smith (Storm), Cal Dodd (Wolverine), Lenore Zann (Rogue), George Buza (Beast), and Adrian Hough (Nightcrawler). New cast members include Ray Chase (Cyclops), Jennifer Hale (Jean Grey), JP Karliak (Morph), AJ LoCascio (Gambit), Holly Chou (Jubilee), Isaac Robinson-Smith (Bishop), and Matthew Waterson (Magneto).
