Marvel’s animated What If...? shows the possibilities of the multiverse

Space. Time. Reality. It’s more than a linear path.

Marvel original series are finally coming to Disney Plus. Amidst live action titles like WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and Loki is the animated What If...? which tells stories of alternate Marvel Cinematic Universes where one little thing changed the whole world. For instance, what if it was Peggy Carter who received the Super Soldier Serum instead of Steve Rogers? What if T’Challa traveled the galaxy as a young boy with space outlaw Yondu and was the man who became Starlord?

First announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, the first trailer for the seires shows the full extent of these possibilities, with a narration by the mysterious and omniscient Watcher. It's full of some iconic MCU scenes lifted right from the movies — but now in a cool animated form — and others that look really, really familiar but with just a little twist. Can you catch them all?

What If...? comes to Disney Plus in summer 2021.
