Last night, Marvel Studios unveiled its first-ever animation panel at San Diego Comic-Con. What made the occasion was that attendees got an exclusive look at what the future has in store for its animation department. That included teases of Spider-Man: Freshman Year, X-Men ’97, and much more. They also got exclusive streaming of an episode of What If..?’s upcoming second season which won’t premiere until next year.
The premiere will once again feature Captain Carter and will focus on her fighting the Hydra Stomper. The opening credits however also include the confirmation that Elizabeth Olsen will reprise her role as Wanda Maximoff in the animated series, though how she plays into the story isn’t known just yet. But, it’s exciting to see how much of a presence she has had throughout Phase 4 with the recent appearance in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
What makes this stand out is that this is her first time voicing Wanda on the Diseny+ animated series. While she made quite the splash with the first ever Disney+ release from Marvel Studios with WandaVision, her appearance as a zombie wasn’t actually voiced by her. So, we’ll see if she potentially has some additional appearances in other episodes throughout the latest season.
