A new trailer for Marvel's What If... was released this week, and while some actors like Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) and Chris Evans (Captain America) will not be lending their voice to the project, many Marvel Cinematic Universe stars will be heard on the upcoming animated series. There are a lot of exciting names on the cast list ranging from Chadwick Boseman (T'Challa/Black Panther) to Hayley Atwell (Peggy Carter), and it seems like there might be some big surprises along the way. A recent post from Clark Gregg, the actor known for playing Agent Phil Coulson in the MCU, has fans thinking his character is going to be showing up on the series. If that's the case, it would mark the actor's first return to Marvel since Agents of SHIELD ended last year.

"Enter the multiverse of unlimited possibilities. Marvel Studios' first animated series, @WhatIf...?, starts streaming August 11 with new episodes Wednesdays on @disneyplus —You never know who might show up," Gregg captioned the What If... trailer. You can check out the post below:

During an interview with Variety last year, Gregg addressed if he'd play Coulson again. "This seems like a real good time to announce that … I really don't know," Gregg shared with a laugh. "Sorry. That was a little bit of quarantine sadism. I don't know anything! It's hard for me to imagine a scenario where I'd say, 'No, I'm too busy to put on whatever the latest version of the suit is and go play Phil Coulson.' I'm always thrilled when I see them changing timelines and exposing a multiverse in the cinematic [universe]. Because I think, 'Well, I've seen scenarios where I could be around!' So I really learned with this character to never say never, but I'm also really grateful for the ride that we had."
