Marvel's What If...? animated series revealed its full trailer today. The show will take fans to alternate timelines of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, in which the stories of Marvel heroes and villains play out in very different ways than the canon we know.
The new animated series will premiere on August 11, 2021 on Disney+. It is the MCU adaptation of the classic anthology series from Marvel Comics. Multiple volumes of the What If...? series ran over the years from 1977-2018.
What If...? will also benefit from having voice work by the actual stars of the MCU films - including Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman. Boseman recorded several episodes of What If...? before his death last summer, and hearing him bring King T'Challa to life again is impacting Marvel fans in a big way.
