Get ready to revisit the era of beepers and Tamagotchis — the X-Men franchise is heading to the ’90s!

While 2011’s X-Men: First Class was set in the ’60s, X-Men: Days of Future Past in the ’70s, and the forthcoming X-Men: Apocalypse taking place in the ’80s, it makes perfect sense that everyone’s favorite mutant superheroes would head into the ’90s for their next film.

X-Men producer Simon Kinberg confirmed the news to at the Apocalypse press junket, but it remains unclear if Kinberg was referring to writer/director Josh Boone’s X-Men: The New Mutants or the next headline X-Men movie in the series.

This news comes at the perfect time as ’90s nostalgia continues to influence pop culture. The X-Men will attempt to tap into a market that has helped resurrect ’90s favorites like Full House, Boy Meets World, Scream, and The X-Files.

The possibilities for the X-Men in the ’90s are endless: Mystique utilizing a Skip-It as a weapon; Magneto growing just a little bit too attached to a Tamagotchi; or even Professor Charles Xavier becoming super invested in Zack and Kelly’s relationship on Saved by the Bell.

We can’t wait!
