Marvel's What If...? Confirms the Return of Major Avengers Villains

Marvel's What If...? will be released in a matter of days, introducing fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to some of the franchise's most interesting storytelling yet. The animated show is a first for Marvel Studios and takes viewers on a trip across the multiverse as characters step into different roles. Hayley Atwell's Peggy Carter will become Captain Carter while STar-Lord is played by the late Chadwick Boseman instead of Chris Pratt. Marvel Studios managed to bring back most MCU talent to date, including the four voice actors behind one of the world's most prominent villains — the Black Order.

Confirmed by a cast breakdown Disney released late Friday night, the same actors who played Proxima Midnight and Ebony Maw in both Avengers: Endgame and Avengers: Infinity War are returning to the MCU. Both Carrie Coon and Tom Vaughan-Lawlor were listed amongst those actors slated to return. Also of note, a handful of other actors were revealed to return despite no previous word they'd be back, including Benedict Cumberbatch, Josh Brolin, and Kurt Russell, amongst others.
