X-Men ’97 isn’t just a sequel series to the classic X-Men cartoon show of the 1990s; it’s also the very first X-Men anything produced by Marvel Studios. After decades of Fox holding the rights to the franchise, Marvel is finally back in the driver’s seat for their merry mutants. And that means X-Men ’97 could actually help set up the upcoming live-action introduction of the X-Men to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

To get of sense how that could happen, watch our latest video below, which breaks down the new X-Men ’97 trailer, and points out loads of Marvel Eggs you might have missed.
