Fans of the upcoming What If? now know what month the Marvel Cinematic Universe's first animated series will make its premiere on Disney+.
What If? will debut in August, making it the first animated series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The anthology borrows from the comic of the same name, which features stories set in an alternate universe where familiar aspects of the Marvel Universe are changed.
For example, some of the tales in What If? will see Peggy Carter gain the super-soldier serum instead of Steve Rogers, transforming her into Captain Britain; Black Panther -- voiced by the late Chadwick Boseman -- replacing Peter Quill as the space pirate Star-Lord, and a world where Earth's Mightiest Heroes have been turned into zombies.
Recently leaked merchandise for What If? has introduced "Party Thor," on a t-shirt, thor the concept art of the God of Thunder still resembles Chris Hemsworth. Another piece of What If? ?concept art also sees the return of classic heroes and villains such as Ultron and the Collector.
Created by A.C. Bradley and directed by Bryan Andrews, What If...? stars Jeffrey Wright, Samuel L. Jackson, Hayley Atwell, Chadwick Boseman, Tom Hiddleston, Michael Rooker, Chris Hemsworth, Dominic Cooper, Jeremy Renner and more. The series premieres in August on Disney+
