2021 is a big year for the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), largely because of Disney Plus. There’s a whole bunch of new live-action TV shows planned, with Loki coming up next. However, there is also an intriguing animated show in the mix.
What if…? explore the alternate possibilities of what could have happened to Marvel’s classic storylines. For example, what if Peggy Carter got the super-soldier serum instead of Steve Rogers?
If you want to know about What If …?, We’ve rounded up all the information we know. You can also check all Film and film shows it’s on Disney Plus now.
When What If …? wind?
What if…? is currently scheduled to release in the summer of 2021. There is no specific wind date yet, but EW released an article mentioning the release in August. There is no official word from Marvel to back it up, however.
The show will run in ten stages, which we assume will be released on a weekly basis.
Watch the trailer
On Disney Plus Investor Day, an entire trailer fell for the series. You can watch it below:
Who is the cast and crew?
As the show animates, there will be a number of Marvel actors scolding their roles for this series.
Confirmed voice actors include Robert Downey Jr., Michael B. Jordan, Sebastian Stan, Josh Brolin, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Hemsworth, Haley Atwell, Chadwick Boseman, Karen Gillan, Jeremy Renner , Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas. Jeffrey Wright will also play the narrator – also known as the Watcher.
The show was written by AC Bradley and directed by Bryan Andrews. The animation was developed by Marvel Studios and Squeeze, with Stephan Franck serving as head of animation.
What if…? balak
What if…? is an anthology series, so each stage will stand as its own story. The character narrating the whole would be Uatu, the Watcher, an extra-terrestrial who played out alternative timelines within the multiverse to see how the stories end.
The trailer confirmed to play the following scenarios:
- What if Peggy Carter got the super-soldier serum and became Captain Britain?
- What if Prince T’Challa was taken by Yondu and became Star Lord, rather than Peter Quill?
We don’t have confirmation yet on what the other stories are, however, we see a shot of Loki in a seemingly strong position – so perhaps this could be an alternative universe where the God of Mischief was victorious in the Battle of New York , and the Avengers were undefeated.
There’s a scary shot of a zombie Captain America facing off against Bucky Barnes. Perhaps this is a universe where Hydra rules supreme and made Captain America an immortal super soldier?
There is also a scene of Doctor Strange facing off against an evil clone of himself. If we have to guess, it can be attributed to the multiverse theory introduced in the ensuing film.
There are also clips of other famous Avengers like Iron Man, Captain Marvel and Thor – but beyond knowing that they appeared, we have yet to predict what the plots will be about.
