Spider-Man to cameo in ‘X-Men ’97’?

It sounds like fans may get to see Spidey and the Mutants reunite!

X-Men ’97 has finally premiered on Disney+, and Rotten Tomatoes ratings are sky-high! Critics are giving it a 100% fresh rating, with audience scores not far behind at 94%! Picking up where the original ’90s series left off, the show is already a hit. But the good news doesn’t stop there for fans!

To recap, not only did the ’90s bring us X-Men: The Animated Series and Spider-Man: The Animated Series (which ran from 1994-1998). Various Marvel heroes made cameos in X-Men, including Spider-Man. Comicbook.com has reported that in a recent interview with Brad Winderbaum, the executive producer of X-Men ’97, he was asked whether Spider-Man would make another appearance in the new series. Brad had this to say:

We have a great executive…Drew River, who manages the continuity of the timeline…X-Men ’97 fits into that ’90s timeline, along with the OG series, as well as those concurrent ’90s shows that would sometimes cross over with the X-Men. The potential is always there…the original show does have a lot of fun cameos, and ’97 carries that torch.
