WHAT IF...? Is Only The First In A Number Of Animated Marvel Cinematic Universe Projects Headed To Disney+
Marvel Cinematic Universe fans were confused when Disney+ announced What If...? as the first Marvel Studios animation. Now it has been confirmed that there are multiple other animated MCU projects coming.
After the incredibly successful and popular Infinity Saga, Disney and Marvel Studios expanded the universe onto streaming. This would see more steady content and stories about characters that may not get the proper treatment on the big screen.
WandaVision, Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and Loki Season 1 kicked things off with a fantastic start, all of which received an enormous amount of praise. Still to come are Ms. Marvel, Hawkeye, She-Hulk, Moon Knight, Ironheart, Armor Wars, Secret Invasion, I am Groot, and the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special.
Before we visit those other upcoming live-action series, however, fans will get to experience Marvel Studios' first animated project, What If...?. Kicking off with the first three episodes next Wednesday, the show is set to smash expectations and deliver the goods, along with the final performance from Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa Star-Lord.
If an animated MCU project is tough for some viewers to swallow, those casual fans may not be too excited about the announcement that more are on the way. Confirming What If...? is only the first of several animated projects that Marvel Studios is preparing, executive producer Brad Winderbaum said the following.
"Yes, we have plans now because of What If…? to make more animated shows. All these shows require animation as a medium, and that can only exist in this art form. Each exists on its own terms and hopefully explores unexpected facets of the MCU."
What do you guys think? Between the second season of What If...? already being confirmed and now this news of other shows to come in the same vein, there's a lot to dissect and expect.
Regardless of your thoughts, be sure to share them in the usual spot below, and let us know which What If...? variant character you're most excited to see!
