X-Men '97 actor JP Karliak recently shared some details about the secrecy surrounding the production of the series.

Marvel Studios has always been notorious for being secretive in all of their projects, even the actors who are starring were not spared from the strict rule and they've become candid regarding the intense security that they undergo whenever they work on an MCU production.

As it turns out, the case remains the same for the people involved in the animated series as most of them also don't have access to the entire scripts of the episodes.

Speaking with Epicstream, Karliak was asked whether he had access to the entire script of the episodes when he was recording his lines for Morph during the show's production.

He revealed that he was only able to get the entire script for some of the episodes and it always depended on the screen time of his character.

"There were certain scripts that I think I had the whole thing. I feel like I had the whole thing for the first one. Maybe that first episode I feel like I had the whole script. In certain episodes, they do. It kinda depends on how much I'm in," he recalled.

It's not surprising to hear that the voice cast was also subjected to the usual secrecy nature of Marvel Studios and it follows their process where the actors occasionally get pages of the script that involve their characters.

Karliak also revealed that he wasn't aware that Morph is heavily featured in the show's opening credits until he saw the premiere episode for the first time.

"I didn't know that it was gonna happen. When we watched the premiere, I had no idea that was gonna happen. I freaked out. I thought it was just the coolest," he shared.

While some fans might see the process as frustrating, it is also understandable since the people involved would also love to preserve the surprise and make the viewing experience worthwhile given the twists and turns that they have in store.

New episodes of X-Men '97 premiere every Wednesday on Disney+.
