Marvel’s ‘What If…?’ Episodes Could Lead To Future Live-Action Spinoffs

Marvel Studios’ first upcoming animated series “What If…?” begins streaming  August 11th on Disney+, with new episodes dropping every Wednesday.  The new series features signature MCU action with a curious twist featuring fan-favorite characters, including Peggy Carter, T’Challa, Doctor Strange, Killmonger, Thor and more.

Executive producer Brad Winderbaum recently told Inverse that What If…?‘s stories could lead their way to live-action spin-offs one day for some of the new characters being introduced in the series.  He also expressed his hopes of seeing more adventures in some of these alternate timelines.

“We wanted each story to be able to be open and shut in that half an hour timeframe, but it’s hard not to imagine more chapters with some of these characters. I hope that one day we do get to see more adventures in some of these alternate timelines. All you have to do to prove that is look back at how many stories from the What If…? comics ended up in the main continuity of the comic universe. My prediction is a similar thing could happen on the cinematic side as well.”

One possibility of a live-action spin-off that fans would love to see is Hayley Atwell’s Captain Carter.  With Steve Rogers retired perhaps we could see Captain Carter take on her own live-action mission in the MCU.  There have also been rumors the character will appear in live-action in the upcoming Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness film.

Over 50 Marvel actors will return to voice their characters in the series including Michael B. Jordan as Killmonger, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes, Josh Brolin as Thanos, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/The Hulk, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, Neal McDonough as Dum Dum Dugan, Dominic Cooper as Howard Stark, Sean Gunn as Kraglin, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Taika Waititi as Korg, Toby Jones as Arnim Zola, Djimon Hounsou as Korath, Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster, Michael Rooker as Yondu, and Jeffery Wright voicing the Watcher.

“What If…?” Season 1 consists of 9 episodes and will begin streaming on August 11th on Disney+, with new episodes dropping every Wednesday.  Season 2 of the series is already in development.
