According to EW, Marvel Studios’ animated series What If….? will arrive on Disney+ in August. The outlet made the reveal in an article in which they listed this summer’s must-watch TV shows.
Based on the popular Marvel comic book series of the same name, What IF….? will be an anthology series. It will tell different stories of what would have happened if certain things occurred differently throughout the MCU’s history.
Some stories that are expected to be shown are what if Peggy Carter took the super-soldier serum instead of Steve Rodgers? Another one will be about what if the Ravagers had picked up T’Challa instead of Peter Quill? This episode will undoubtedly be emotional for fans because Chadwick Boseman was able to provide his voice for the role before his tragic death last August.
Other current and past MCU actors/actresses are also expected to voice their roles for the 10 episode series. Michael B. Jordan (Killmonger), Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes), Josh Brolin (Thanos), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/The Hulk), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), and Hayley Atwell (Agent Peggy Carter) are just some of the names that will be in it. Also, Jeffrey Wright will play The Watcher, who will serve as the show’s host.
The series will be directed by Bryan Andrews, while Ashley Bradley will be its head writer.
