Disney is planning an animated series for their new streaming service Disney+ based on the What If comic series. In an exclusive from SlashFilm, it is reported Kevin Feige will oversee the project and Marvel Studios, however it will not follow the canon events or timeline of the MCU.
The animated series will follow the What If comic series, which explores what might have happened if key moments in the Marvel Universe unfolded differently than what happened in canon. The What If series launched in February of 1977, with over 200 issues in total.
What if Captain America hadn’t vanished during World War II? What if Spider-Man didn’t become a crimefighter? What if Thanos joined the Avengers? What if Captain America was found in 1983? What if Professor X had become Juggernaut? What if Wolverine had killed the Hulk? What if The Hulk always has Bruce Banner’s brain? What if the Avengers defeated everybody? What if Flash Thompson, Betty Brant, and John Jameson had been bitten by the radioactive spider instead of Spider-Man? What if Phoenix had not died? What if the Fantastic Four hadn’t gotten their powers? What if Captain America was elected President? What if J. Jonah Jameson adopted Spider-Man? What if Cable had destroyed The X-Men? What if the world knew Daredevil is blind? What if Namor grew up on land with his human father? What if Daredevil became an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.? What if Elektra had lived? What if Spider-Man Had Rescued Gwen Stacey? What if Aunt May had been killed instead of Uncle Ben? What if Jessica Jones had joined The Avengers? What if the Avengers had become pawns of Korvac?
It’s possible that actors from the MCU could return in this series to voice their characters.
