The Disney + Day celebrations end with the bang: in the evening, in fact, Marvel and Disney confirmed a rumor that had been circulating on the net for some time, announcing that the historic animated series X-Men ’97 , broadcast in the USA between 1992 and 1997, will have a sequel . Not very soon, however: the launch is in fact fixed at the moment for a generic 2023 .
The one in charge of bringing the good news to fans around the world was Wolverine. Not just any Wolverine, however, but that “ sad Wolverine ” taken from the original series that in these years has been among the most popular memes on the net . Who better than him, therefore, could take on this important burden: fully dressed, but lying on the bed with a melancholy air like a beardless teenager, Wolverine holds a frame in his hands. How many memories, of course: but under that logo, “X-Men ’97 “, the announcement of an all-new original series streaming on Disney + also appears in the 2023.
