Update: Marvel Studios ‘What If…?’ Set for an August Debut, Date Still Uncertain
Update: After speaking with Disney, we understand that, as of now, no release date has been set for the series and the original report was in error.
What If…? will revisit some of the key moments in the MCU and reimagine those events in unexpected ways. Concept art and trailers for the 10-episode series have shown off some of the characters such as T’Challa as Star-Lord, an Ultron from a timeline where he apparently won, Super Soldier Peggy Carter and a most excellent Party Thor. The series will also introduce Uatu the Watcher, voiced by Jeffrey Wright, to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Production on a second season of the show has already begun and early feedback on the series has been incredibly positive. As of now, Disney has not addressed whether or not they’ll drop all 10 episodes at once, a few in week one or stick with the weekly format they’ve followed pretty routinely so far.
