In addition, it clarifies that the characters of each story may appear in other episodes without a problem.
“Spoilers! I can say that there will be more than a few surprising cameos from the MCU, and characters can and will appear in more than one episode. ”
The Marvel’s What If…? it was first featured in the comics. Now the studio points to animation as the perfect model with which to transfer it to its cinematographic universe. In 2019, AC Bradley confirmed in an interview with Discussing Film that each episode would explore an alternate plot for each character in the MCU. The objective is to present the vast majority of characters. “ Making one movie per episode is not the goal. The goal is to see the most characters from these 23 movies. See more than one character in each episode ”.
The first season of Marvel’s What If…? will feature ten episodes that will give a new meaning to the stories of the studio’s heroes. At the moment several plots of the series have been presented. What would have happened if Peggy Carter received become the super soldier? Or what would have become of T’Challa if Yondu had taken him instead of Peter Quill?

“Kevin [Feige] told us that we would explore each movie from a different point of view. But not every episode is about a movie, I don’t know if that makes sense. In the trailer [shown at the D23 Expo], there is an image of T’Challa as Star-Lord. We wanted to see if the worlds of Guardians of the Galaxy and Black Panther could come together. That way we take two universes, two to three films, and we twist them in a new way ”.
