Marvel Studios Gears Up to Hear Pitches for X-Men Series Reboot

original x men timeline

Marvel Studios is making waves in the industry once again. Word is out that they are preparing to hear pitches for a reboot of the X-Men series. As sources tell Deadline, writer meetings are scheduled for later this fall to discuss the much-anticipated X-Men film. But there’s no need to hurry. Despite the buzz, Marvel isn’t in a rush to finalize things. The film doesn’t have a set date, and the writer selection will probably happen in early 2024. Marvel has chosen to stay quiet on the matter.

The X-Men franchise has been a goldmine. It’s been in the spotlight since Disney acquired 20th Century Fox and its movie library in 2019. Remember the successful Wolverine spinoff series? Or how about the seven films under the X-Men universe? These all stemmed from Fox’s control over the franchise. However, the 2019 release of ‘Dark Phoenix’ didn’t go as planned. Since then, X-Men has been waiting for a fresh start.

After Marvel Studios acquired Fox, their president, Kevin Feige, has been attentively monitoring the progress. Though there hasn’t been a direct move to restart the X-Men series, Marvel has subtly integrated teasers into their productions. One significant clue was in the ending of the ‘Ms. Marvel’ series, hinting at the debut of mutants, key characters in the X-Men universe.

What’s more, Marvel is giving fans a taste of nostalgia. In 2024, we’ll see X-Men ’97,’ an animated tribute to the classic ’90s series, on Disney+.

Following the recent agreements, including the WGA and AMPTP deal, the industry is abuzz with anticipation. Writers are gearing up for new projects. However, there’s still the looming SAG-AFTRA strike, unresolved since July 14, causing a sense of unease.

Marvel’s upcoming releases

The Marvel universe is set to expand with some exciting new additions. ‘Loki’ returns with its second season on October 6, 2023. Following closely, ‘The Marvels’ will hit the big screen on November 10, 2023. As we step into 2024, ‘Echo’ is slated for a January release. The much-awaited ‘Deadpool 3’ is set for May 3, while ‘Captain America: Brave New World’ will captivate audiences on July 26, 2024.
