SDCC19: WHAT IF…? spin-off show announced

What If...? (Marvel Studios)

One of Marvel’s more interesting announcements during its Hall H panel at last night’s San Diego Comic Con is the What If…? animated series.

What If…? is an animated project which will be headlined by The Watcher, set to be voiced by Jeffrey Wright. The series will bring back a huge number of Marvel supporting players to tell alternate stories about their characters.

Alongside debuting the logo for the show Kevin Feige unveiled a huge list of actors set to appear on the show including our very favourite Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter.

The list above includes Michael B. Jordan (Erik Killmonger), Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier), Josh Brolin (Thanos), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/Hulk), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Hayley Atwell (Peggy Carter), Chadwick Boseman (T’Challa/Black Panther), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/Hawkeye), Paul Rudd (Scott Lang/Ant-Man), Michael Douglas (Hank Pym/Ant-Man), Neal McDonough (Dum Dum Dugan), Dominic Cooper (Howard Stark), Sean Gunn (Kraglin), Natalie Portman (Jane Foster), David Dastmalchian (Kurt), Stanley Tucci (Dr. Abraham Erskine), Taika Waititi (Korg), Toby Jones (Dr. Arnim Zola), Djimon Hounsou (Korath), Jeff Goldblum (Grandmaster), Michael Rooker (Yondu) and Chris Sullivan (Taserface). 

WHAT IF…? 

Feige offered new information on “What If…?,” the first animated series in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “What If…?” is being created exclusively for Disney+ and features stories that present alternate realities in the Marvel universe.

Feige mentioned that many actors from across the Marvel Cinematic Universe will reprise their roles as voice talent in the series. He then surprised the audience by bringing Jeffrey Wright to the stage and introducing him as the voice of the popular character The Watcher in the new series.

What If…? joins the Disney+ lineup in the summer of 2021.
