Marvel’s What If? Is back for a second series on Disney+ this December – and here’s the trailer to prove it…
What If? was a surprising, fun addition to the Marvel canon when it first landed on Disney+, perhaps because the sheer scale of storytelling possibilities is so huge.
Series one featured scenarios as wide ranging as Peggy Carter becoming the First Avenger and T’Challa becoming a Star Lord, to examining what might have happened if artificially-intelligent supervillain Ultron hadn’t been defeated by those pesky Avengers. It doesn’t look like the next run of the show will be pulling its punches either.
Promotion is underway for it now, and we now have a synopsis for the second series. It doesn’t tell us much, but nevertheless reads as follows:
Season 2 of Marvel Studios’ imaginative and captivating “What If…?” series continues the journey as The Watcher guides viewers again through the vast multiverse, introducing brand new and familiar faces throughout the MCU. The series questions, revisits and twists classic Marvel Cinematic moments with an incredible voice cast that includes a host of stars who are reprising their iconic roles. Featuring fan-favorite characters this season like Nebula, Hela and Happy Hogan.
The voice cast includes Hayley Atwell, Lake Bell, Josh Keaton and Jeffrey Wright back as The Watcher, the character who takes viewers into the various stories.
Bryan Andrews returns as director, with AC Bradley as head writer. The scripts are also being written by Ryan Little and Matthew Chauncey. With Marvel movies being somewhat thin on the ground between now and Deadpool 3 in May (though there’s also Sony’s Madame Web, we suppose…), at least there’ll be shows like this one to keep us amused.
What If? Series two will stream on Disney+ from the 22nd December.
Watch the trailer below, which gives us a few more clues as to what to expect…
