X-Men 97: The Uncanny Edit (Feature Length)


I’m currently putting the finishing touches to a feature cut of X-Men 97, but it will be a most ‘unique’ edit, in that I won’t be using much of the Zero Tolerance or Fatal Attractions storylines (to delve into them would make the edit too long). instead, we focus mostly on the Maddie/Jean drama, the trial of Magneto, the massacre of Genosha, Storm’s journey to reclaim her powers, and lastly a big final battle between the X-Men and the Sentinels.

From what you can guess from that last bit…yes, Gambit’s going to survive Genosha and join the X-Men alongside Rogue. Rogue chooses Remy but does not join Magneto’s side to avenge him.

There’s a minimal use of Sunspot, he appears in the opening rescue scene, again in the “Fire Made Flesh” segment, and then again talking to Jubilee in the mid-credits scene, the post-credits will set up Zero Tolerance and reveal Magneto also survived Genosha.
