What if…? Season 1: New Release, Details, Trailer, and More!

Directed by Bryan Andrews with AC Bradley as head writer, “What If…?” flips the script on the MCU, reimagining famous events from the films in unexpected ways. Marvel Studios’ first animated series focuses on different heroes from the MCU, featuring a voice cast that includes a host of stars who reprise their roles, the first season of which premieres Wednesday, August 11, 2021, on Disney+.

WHAT IS “WHAT IF..?”

What if instead of Steve Rogers, Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) actually became the first Super Soldier? That creative brainstorming exercise is the heart of What If…?, the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first animated series. The anthology reimagines numerous major events from the movies in game-changing ways and also features Chadwick Boseman, who was able to reprise T’Challa via voice work before his death

Like the comic books of the same name, the animated show will delve into the MCU’s most famous moments and ask what would have happened if they transpired another way.

Importantly, the anthology show will not alter the existing canon in the mainline Marvel universe, so you need not worry about any permanent changes affecting your most beloved characters. However, Marvel Studios’ EVP Victoria Alonso has acknowledged that inclusion and diversity will play a part as the franchise continues to grow.

Each story will be confined to its own alternate reality, in keeping with the multiverse theme that will soon be carried over to the big screen in Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange sequel.
