Creator of X Men 97 Beau DeMayo Fired Just Weeks Ahead of Shows Premiere

As fans are gearing up for the March 20th release of ‘X-Men ’97’ shocking news resurfaced that Beau DeMayo was fired earlier this week just several weeks before the show’s premiere according to The Hollywood Reporter. This came as a shock because MCU plans going forward included Beau to a large extent as he was involved with several confirmed and unconfirmed projects, most notably ‘Blade,’ the project that is still suffering development hell.

To make matters even more complicated DeMayo has already finished work on the second season of the animated shows and was discussing ideas for the third season. Apparently, the reason why DeMayo was fired was never given, and his representatives refused to comment. His Instagram account was also promptly deleted as well and his official email was deactivated.

It all sounds extremely troubling and extremely sudden, Disney is not a stranger to firing their stars, but you can almost always see it coming, most notably with Depp, Gunn, and most recently Jonathan Majors.

Marvel hired DeMayo in November 2021, and people were excited because he’s a gay Black man who talked about how his unique family background made the X-Men’s fight for acceptance feel personal to him. He used to post a lot on social media, including X-Men stuff and gym photos. He even had a non-explicit Only Fans account, which got him labeled as “the Sexy, Gay Marvel Writer & Showrunner.”

In any case, we hope to find out more reasons behind the firing in the coming days. ‘X-Men ’97’ are scheduled to premiere with two episodes on March 20. The first season will comprise of 10 episodes.
