“Space. Time. Reality. It’s more than a linear path.”
Marvel will be asking What If…? next summer as its first animated series hits Disney+.
The studios’ new series takes inspiration from the comic books of the same name and flips the script on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, reimagining famous events from the films in unexpected ways. Directed by Bryan Andrews, with Ashley Bradley serving as head writer,, each episode will explore a pivotal moment from the MCU and turn it on its head, leading the audience into uncharted territory, such as “What if Peggy Carter was the one who became a super soldier?”
Different heroes from the MCU will feature, with the voice cast including a host of stars who will reprise their roles, such as Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter. Jeffrey Wright will also lend his voice as The Watcher.
The series follows the launch of Marvel’s new Phase 4 with WandaVision landing on Disney+ in January 2021, and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier hitting the streaming service in March.
