While we already know that a slew of Marvel-driven shows are in development for the upcoming Disney+ streaming service, now comes word on a potentially brilliant animated series for the service.
Courtesy of Slash Film, it’s being reported that a What If? animated show is being worked on for Disney+. To be overseen by Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige, the series will take on an anthology format where a new story will be focussed on in each and every episode.
Beginning life in 1977, Marvel’s What If? title looked to explore alternative stories in which certain fundamentals of the Marvel Universe were shaken up. Often with Uatu the Watcher serving as a narrator for readers, examples of famous What If? tales include Spider-Man joining the Fantastic Four, Iron Man becoming a traitor, Wolverine becoming the Punisher, Thor becoming the herald of Galactus, and the likes of Gwen Stacy and Karen Page not dying.
According to this latest report, one story that definitely will be adapted for Disney+’s What If? show is Loki being the one to find Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir. Similarly, it’s also being speculated that the cast of the Marvel Cinematic Universe could well lend their vocals to their animated counterparts for the series.
As ever, expect more on What If? as it continues to develop.
