Marvel Studios What If

Marvel Studios is set to redefine the boundaries of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) with the second season of its original animated series, What If…?, premiering on Disney+ this December 22, 2023. Fans can look forward to unwrapping a new episode daily for nine consecutive days, offering a unique holiday treat from the world of superheroes.

A Fresh Perspective on Familiar Tales

What If…? stands out as Marvel Studios’ first foray into animation, taking a bold step in reimagining key events from the MCU in ways never seen before. The series delves into alternate realities, exploring what would happen if major moments from the MCU films occurred differently. This innovative approach not only offers fresh narratives but also pays homage to the beloved characters and stories that have captivated audiences worldwide.

The series has boasted an impressive roster of MCU stars reprising their roles, lending their voices to bring a new dimension to their iconic characters. The list includes renowned actors like Benedict Cumberbatch, Chris Hemsworth, Samuel L. Jackson, and even Tom Holland. Season 2 of the series looks to be continuing the tradition and also potentially explore possibilities of new versions to take over and maybe even retcon current events of the MCU.

Season One

Season 1 was directed by Bryan Andrews and with AC Bradley as the head writer, What If…? is backed by a creative team that understands the core of Marvel storytelling. Executive producers Brad Winderbaum, Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, alongside Andrews and Bradley, have crafted a series that is both a tribute to and an expansion of the MCU.

The first season of What If…? set a high bar, offering imaginative and sometimes darker takes on familiar MCU narratives. With its second season, the series promises to delve deeper into the multiverse, bringing more “what if” scenarios that will challenge viewers’ perceptions of their favorite heroes and villains. But it seems like Season 2 is a whole new collection of events that might intersect with the ones from Season 1.

Kevin Fenix

Professional Nerd | Amateur Human | Creative/Content Director The best way to describe Kevin Fenix is the kid you never tell what the buttons do in video games so you have a chance to win. Being 6’ 4” and Asian, he never really fit in, so he got comfortable standing out. Not only is it easy to find him in crowds, he dabbles in the culinary arts, does a little stand up and improv, and can honestly say Spider-Man is the Jesus-like influence of his life. Kevin Fenix loves dogs, movies, television, comics, comedy, and to shoot people… with video.
