While live-action television trailers and casting announcements for future films dominated The Walt Disney Company’s Investor Day presentation by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, one animated series stood out.
Based on the classic Marvel Comics series, Disney+ will bring What If? to audiences in the summer of 2021 and it will also feature the last performance by Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Star Lord in an alternate reality.
The other episode heavily featured in the trailer is Hayley Atwell’s return as Peggy Carter, but this time Peggy is the one who received the Super Soldier serum, not Steve Rogers.
Jeffrey Wright voices the host of What if?, the mysterious Watcher, Uatu (who, surprisingly has made six appearances across many Marvel animated series, dating all the way back to 1967’s Fantastic Four when he was voiced by The Haunted Mansion’s “ghost host”, Paul Frees).
What If? is directed by Bryan Andrews, with Ashley Bradley serving as head writer. Check out the trailer below to get a glimpse of a new world of possibilities.
