Marvel Showcases “ResurrXion” Series with 90’s Animated Theme Song
After making the mutants face near extinction, Marvel is ready to give them a brighter tomorrow with ResurrXion. Check out the newly released trailer showcasing the upcoming comic book series.
Marvel is going back to the past with its new take on the X-Men. Not only did the company resurrect the corner box art, the newly released trailer brings back the 90’s animated series’ theme song.
The near 80-second clip showcases the 10 X-Men titles that fans will be able to read soon enough. The upcoming titles shown in the trailer are X-Men Gold, X-Men Blue, All-New Wolverine, Old Man Logan, Weapon X, Cable, Generation X, Jean Grey, Iceman, and Astonishing X-Men.
A version of this trailer will also be used for TV. This makes sense as Marvel has announced it’ll start advertising comic books on TV as well as before movies. The first ResurrXion title, X-Men Prime, will be released on 29th March. It’ll be followed by X-Men Gold #1 on 5th April.
The official press release does give hope to X-Men fans who feared that Marvel was pushing mutants away to shine the spotlight on the Inhumans. The IvX finale could’ve spelled disaster for the mutants.
A bright new tomorrow is coming for the Children of the Atom as the X-Men race full speed into ResurrXion! Today, Marvel is excited to release its first trailer timed with the upcoming release of all-new X-titles – X-MEN GOLD, X-MEN BLUE, GENERATION X, WEAPON X, ICEMAN, JEAN GREY, CABLE,OLD MAN LOGAN, ALL-NEW WOLVERINE and ASTONISHING X-MEN!
