I hope DOFP kicks up the interest in games and cartoons. Stoked about the Deadpool game and want more. Been a good year overall for X fans with this film announcement, All New X men, WATX and Uncanny X Force. Hope Uncanny Avengers kicks it up a notch but really dug the idea of Cap choosing Havok as a leader and Rogues been great so far. Lotta good stuff happening for X Men, def been one of the more exciting years.

I cant wait for the new animated series. Its been in development for some time now, so it should be ready before DOFP premiere.
It will appeal to the young audience and hopefully new potential fans, so the more xmen fans the better for.this sequel impact

it was confirmed a long time ago, after W&theXmen cancellation

edited: now that I read the article again, it isnt an actual confirmation, but more like an inside source.

I wouldnt mind a sequel to The Wolverine game. That game was ****ing awesome for the most part. The cut scenes alone were worth the price.

I think that one ended with Sentinels taking over DOFP style too if I remember right.

I can't wait for the new X-Men animated show either. I hope it's as good as TAS, which is one of the best animated xmen shows ever. WATXM was okay but not as good as TAS. I can't wait.

Yes! This show was what put the X-men squarely in the crosshairs of pop culture. TAS' voice talent is pretty much the definitive X-men voices. That theme music. As Magneto would say "Perfection!"

Yes, the voices I hear whenever I read the comics. The music that plays in my head whenever I decide to read a comic, watch an episode, watch a movie...play Origins Wolverine (the game)... that show helped raise me.

Haha I was Gambit whenever I was playing with my siblings and cousins. Every main X-man from the show was represented. We're a big family if you can imagine. There's maybe even a video of us somewhere horsing around saying lines from the show.

^Indeed. I really hope this show makes full use of the characters that they use. And hope the animation is top knotch.

I just got a thought. In the article Angamb posted it said that Marvel were using the likeness and possibly voices of the actors in MCU for Avenger's Assemble. Do you think they'll do that for the X-Men show. Especially since this probably won't be released until DOFP comes out.

No chance for that.They Is no way Disney will allow Likeness or voices for films to be
used.Marvel has been draging It's feet on another X-Men animated show since pulling plug on wolverine and the X-men.And X-Men and WOlverine anime don't count to me.

I don't care much about a new cartoon series for X-Men. I still haven't finished watching all the episodes of Wolverine and the X-Men.

What I want is a X-Men videogame like X-Men Legends II.

I actually think all the X Men cartoons (original, Evaluation, Wolverine and The X-Men) have been really good.
And yes, there was a big thing over the Marvel TV News thing, none of it is legit.

I sort of like Pryde of the X-Men, despite Wolverine's ridiculous (though funny, considering Jackman...) Aussie-accent.

I never saw that one. I think the best one was X-Men.

I like Wolverine and the X-Men the best but only by a tiny margin. X-Men is still an amazing show with the best music from any X-Men movie/tv show.

Just watched a couple minutes of it and you really weren't kidding about the Aussie accent. How on earth did they go from Canadian to Australian? They're polar opposite accents...

Also Prof X sounds a lot like Beast in TAS.

I grew up on TAS and adore it but I'd definitely pick Evolution as the best X-cartoon.

Wasn't a fan of Evolution. The looks and personalities (plus some of the irritating voices) were such a departure from the comics and from TAS. I haven't revisited the series in a while but Scarlet Witch and Boom Boom come to mind. *ugh*

That said I like Wolverine and the X-men a bit more. And of course, TAS is ahead of the pack.

Have known about Pryde of the X-men and its huge inconsistencies with canon (Wolverine's Aussie accent, etc) but still have not seen that. But from your post seems like you're not a fan? Should I bother dl'ing it?

Costume-wise they were generally uninspired in XE. But then I wasn't fond of most of the costumes in TAS (Jean Grey's was a particular pet peeve-- did they have to pick colors so close to her skintone??). I think WATX got it right in that department. But I found the actual LOOK of it really refreshing. It felt youthful and fresh and for a hand-animated North American production it was REALLY well animated. It completely blows out TAS and WATX in that department.

As for the voices... welllll... a couple of friends of mine played characters on the show so I'm a little biased but honestly the only one I'd have an issue with would be Kitty, who was like, ohmigod, no way, TOTALLY like, grating, like with her teenagerness ya know? But as a kid I downright haaated a few of the TAS voices. Jean always sounded like she'd just fainted, Storm seemed to "announce" everything, and Professor X just sounded downright peculiar.

I know XE doesn't follow the comics at all but as someone who's never properly followed X-Men comics that wasn't an issue for me. Though frankly I've never understood this desire and expectation people have of adaptations to be identical reproductions of the original source. If you want DOFP to go exactly as the comic, just read the comic? Not following everything verbatim leaves room for exciting surprises beyond "how are they going to design the costume". Take amc's WALKING DEAD, for instance. It still basically follows the comic but it's also quite clearly going its own way. I've read all the comics and I still have no idea what they're going to do each episode. It's exciting! I've never once been upset by changes they've made to the source.

When you follow everything verbatim you get The Hobbit. Told in 8 more hours than it needs. Which is cool if you're a fan I guess, but as entertainment to the general audience it's not ideal, and things need to be catered to the non-fans who vastly outnumber the hypercritical superfans.

And X-Men isn't one straightforward 200-page book, it's a dozen different titles all running simultaneously, with different and sometimes overlapping universes. What can possibly be considered "canon"? Are we looking at Ultimates or Uncanny? If Professor X gets killed by an Alien in Astonishing but then killed by Magneto in a separate 2-part story arc, which one is "canon"? It's just impossible to follow everything.

I know when you say "not following canon" in regards to XEvolution you're talking more about how Mystique is a principal and all the X-Men and Brotherhood are students at the same school and stuff, so it's definitely different. As a cartoon it's a really great series. As an X-Men series it's perhaps not what the comic crowd were hoping for.

As for Pryde, yeeeahhh I'm not going to give that one any more time. It was just way too hokey and outdated for me. Couldn't tell you how close to canon it runs but if they're making Wolverine a grumpy Australian I don't imagine they care too much about the rest of it. :P

My favorite parts of Evolution, though I like it, were X23, Captain America and Wolvie's orange-uniform.

Evaluation was also great, though some of the characters were too off from the comics.

David Hemblen was great as the voice of Magneto, I thought. He also voiced Mags in some of the video games and should be hired as the voice coach for Fassbender's live-action version.
