During the season one finale of Marvel’s Loki, the death of Jonathan Majors’ He Who Remains opened the floodgates for the multiverse to pour out. With films like Spider-Man: No Way Home right around the corner, fans are looking forward to what that will mean for the future of the MCU. Well, fans won’t have to wait very long to find out with Marvel Studios’ first animated series, the multiverse sprawling What If…?.
Last week, our friends over at The DisInsider Show revealed that veteran MCU actor Hayley Atwell will appear as her What If…? character, Captain Carter, in the highly anticipated Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. However, according to insider Daniel Richtman, she won’t be alone. Apparently, multiple characters debuting in What If…? will crossover and make their presence felt in the Doctor Strange sequel as well.
What If…? explores what would happen if major moments from the films of the MCU occurred differently. For example, the first episode features Peggy Carter taking the Super Soldier Serum instead of Steve Rogers. Other major shakeups include T’Challa joining the Ravagers from the Guardians of the Galaxy films and Michael B. Jordan‘s Killmonger befriending Tony Stark. At this time, it is unclear which characters could appear in Doctor Strange 2. Moreover, the entire series will be narrated by Marvel’s legendary cosmic character The Watcher, voiced by Jeffrey Wright. However, it’s clear the animated series will have some major ramifications on the MCU’s next phase.
The first season of What If…? is scheduled to premiere on August 11, 2021, and will consist of 10 episodes, concluding on October 13. Additionally, a second 10-episode season is in already development. Created by A.C. Bradley (Arrow), characters in the series will be voiced by the actors who portray them in the films. Notably, the series serves as the final time the late, great Chadwick Boseman performs as the T’Challa.
