X-Men ’97’s Magneto Reacts To The Drama About Gambit And Rogue

The Magneto actor shared his thoughts about the love triangle between the mutants in Season 1.

Matthew Waterson recently revealed in an interview on the ‘Phase Zero’ podcast that the love triangle between Magneto, Rogue, and Gambit had roots in the comics. He talked about the romance plot in ‘X-Men ’97’ by saying:

“That’s one where, again, I have to admit, I didn’t know that there was history in the canon for that. So, we talked about it, and the explanation of that is a relation, that’s not something that came about in this interaction. That was something that was there historically before Rogue and Gambit. And it’s a revisiting of that.”

The voice actor commented on the attention the dynamic received:

“And then, when you see the bits of the justification for why, of they can be more open, and more, for want of a better phrase, human with each other than either of them can be with a lot of other people, it makes a huge amount of sense. In terms of knowing that it would make some people very, very upset, or very sad? That’s one where you go, ‘Yeah, this is going to drive a bunch of people crazy, and that’s just going to be fun.’”

New Dramas May Come Up In Next Seasons

‘X-Men ’97’ introduced conflicts beyond the love triangle this season. Tension arose between the mutant team and the Avengers after Rogue threw Captain America’s shield far away in the seventh episode.

Professor X actor Ross Marquand hinted at a possible ‘Avengers vs. X-Men’ storyline following this clash in the past weeks. He told ComicBook.com:

“You saw what happened in the last episode [with] Rogue and Captain America. There’s a real chance that that could happen. He can’t fly. Captain can’t fly. She threw that in the side of a snowy mountain.”

His words went on:

“I’m sure it’s lodged in there 50 feet deep. He isn’t gonna find that shield. It’s not like Mjolnir where you can pull it back, it’s stuck in that thing. He’s gonna be pissed at Rogue for a while.”

The Animated Show Is Its Own Thing, Directors Say

Season 1 also nodded to the MCU through cameos from Spider-Man and Baron Zemo as well as mentions of Kamar-Taj. Emi Yonemura said there were plans to connect the animated show to the main universe but shared with Inverse:

“That has always been something we know was on Kevin Feige’s mind, do we make this part of the MCU? Do we not make this part of the MCU? It’s actually gone back and forth quite a few times, and I think we did land in a smart place because [‘X-Men: The Animated Series’] was its own thing, and I think that to continue it we needed to be our own thing.”

Jake Castorena supported the separation and added:

“We’re getting the X-Men in this format and we’re doing it justice not just by ourselves, but also other fans as well, and we’re starting to get a resurgence of the X-Men in film again. I love that. And I think it’s great that we can have different things, let them be different.”

‘X-Men ’97’ first season finale will air on May 15. The team already started production of Season 2.
