    I wasn't aware that special comics by Marvel existed where they featured "What if" scenarios on familiar canon material like Captain America surviving through WWII. They recently announced that they'll be releasing a new animated series based on these comics for Disney+ in the future. Should be interesting.

    I remember them fairly well. One was „What if Sue Storm had left areed Richards for Namor“. Pretty good story.

    Remind me what does a TV series have to do with the cinema? Not to mention what exactly is the "Marvel Cinematic" thread for anyway? There's an Avengers thread. There's a Captain Marvel thread. There's a Spiderman thread. I'm sure there's an Iron Man and Captain America thread around somewhere.

    Being an animated series it would feel out of place from the MCU. Not to mention they're "What If's ...". They don't actually happen within it's continuity. Maybe if it was the Marvel Cinematic Multiverse thread.

    Interesting. This reminds me of one of the best DC comics of this type, Red Sun. Wherein Superman's capsule lands in the USSR instead of Kansas and he grows up fighting for the Soviet way.

    *sigh* I wish Disney owned DC instead.

    Well not that long ago there was a short-lived series of DC comics and animated shorts called: Justice League: Gods and Monsters which gave different backgrounds for a handful of the most recognizable characters including Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Harley Quinn.

    What if we didn't already have, like, a billion Marvel threads?

    I think the announcement said they would be grounded in MCU continuity as the basis for their "What If?". Presumably it's a way of getting the actors to return without having to commit to the longer timeframe of a live action performance.

    So it would be like a handful of one-offs for the voice actors. Maybe even get a few of the live action stars like Robert Downy Jr. to lend their voices for a show or two. It's not like a big commitment.

    I watched the clips for the first What If episode that explores the idea of what if Peggy Carter was given the super soldier serum and the animation looks outstanding. Very similar to the animation style of The Iron Giant. The What IF clips on Disney+ also showed a Captain America as zombie (aka Marvel Zombie Colonel America), which also looked very good. My wife was like :eek: when she saw that.

    Where do I find the "What if" series in Disney+? It doesn't seem to be among the Marvel collection of animated shows.

    Yeah, like heels said, the actual episode are not available yet.

    However, the What If clips I was referencing are found in the 12 minute "documentary" titled Marvel Studios: Expanding the Universe. The What If portion starts around the 7 minute mark of the documentary.

    New trailer. I haven't started watching the Loki series on D+, but I plan on watching the new What If? series as soon as it airs.

    Right off the bat…

    It looks like Killmonger has partaken of the Heart-Shaped Herb when he saved Stark. Interesting…

    I’m stoked!
