As a kid of the 90s I loved waking up on Saturday mornings and watching X-Men. Whether it was the badass theme song, unique retellings of classic X-Storylines, or even the odd choice of accents, X-Men the animated series is the gold standard of Marvel cartoons. So naturally when it was brought to my attention that an indiegogo campaign was looking to make a live-action adaptation of it I had to check it out.
Long time actor turned writer/director, Evan Feldman is leading the charge on a brand new fan-made web series titled; “X-Men: Children of the Atom”. With a constantly evolving cast being recruited throughout America, this web series has the potential to be the next mutation in the future of X-Men Fan Series.
After mutants are blamed for a terrorist attack, human/mutant relations are at an all-time boiling point. A cunning and prominent Senator views this as an opportunity to finally make a play for the White House. On one side are those who view themselves superior to humans and thus their rightful rulers. On the other side, the X-MEN who will go all out to obtain a world where both can co-exist peacefully. In the middle, are those looking just to get by.
Check out some of the cast below:
There are perks for financial backers that range from 5 dollars all the way to 1000! This is one fan film/series you will want to get behind. And who knows, this could give Marvel Studios some ideas from real fans in the process. Go and support these guys here.
