What If? Designer Teases Season 2 Characters

Marvel's What If...? is currently five episodes deep and it marks the first animated Marvel Studios series to hit Disney+. The show has asked a lot of intense questions ranging from "What If... the World Lost Its Mightiest Heroes?" to "What If... Zombies?!," and fans are eager to see what the show will have in store in the future. Kevin Feige has previously teased that the show's second season will feature Phase Four characters, and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings star, Simu Liu, recently told ComicBook.com's Phase Zero podcast that he wants to appear in future seasons. Recently, What If...? designer, Paul Lasaine, spoke with The Direct and teased Season 2 characters.

"Some of the new movies that are coming out, there are some characters [in Season 2] that are based on that. And then there's some that are brand new, like... literally brand new," Lasaine shared. "There was one thing, and this is a Season 2 thing, and this will not be a spoiler, but we wanted to do this cool effect in this one place, and it was really a cool, interesting camera effect. And the producers came back and said 'Well, actually, we're gonna be doing that on this other movie which isn't coming out yet for another year or two, so can you come up with a different effect?' 'Ok, yeah, sure, we can do that.' It doesn't happen that often, again because we are primarily basing...every one of these episodes, for the most part, is based on these existing movies, even if it's a mash-up. You know, our Episode 2 was Guardians of the Galaxy and Black Panther, so we know what that pretty much entails, and we don't go too far off field."
