“Every universe is different, each one unique.”
Marvel’s asking “What If…?” with its new animated series, and a new trailer gives us a look at the reality-bending answers.
As the MCU enters a new phase, the comics giant is toying with the idea of a multiverse, from WandaVision and Doctor Strange to Loki and Ant-Man. Now, it’s diving headfirst into the possibilities that different universes offer on-screen, with a show that reimagines famous events from Marvel movies with different characters and styles.
Marvel’s first animated series in the MCU, the programme features characters and scenarios including Peggy Carter as Captain America, T’Challa as Star-Lord, plus Doctor Strange, Killmonger, Thor and more. Directed by Bryan Andrews with AC Bradley as head writer, the result is a show with intriguing potential – but one that also carries an extra punch because it features the last performance of the late Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa. Also among the voice cast is Jeffrey Wright as The Watcher, who narrates and oversees each episode.
What If…? premieres on Disney+ on 11th August. Here’s the trailer:
