What If...? is an upcoming series. It will be set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This will be the first animated project officially part of the popular universe.
Based on the popular line of comics, What If...? will explore various possible alternatives in the Cinematic Universe. Feige has continuously teased that one idea will be if Peggy Carter, not Steve Rogers, got the Super Soldier Serum. Another episode teased will follow a classic issue of Loki finding Mjolnir.
At the 2019 Disney D23, Marvel confirmed two stories that would be part of the story. The first is if Peggy Carter took the super soldier serum and became Captain Britain, unrelated to the mutant character of the same name. Her shield will have a Union Jack in the middle rather than the American star. The other story will involve Steve Rogers becoming Iron Man.
A teaser at the 2019 Disney D23 confirmed that the Marvel Zombies would be part of the series. Marvel Zombies was a popular alternate horror-based universe that spun off from the Ultimate universe.
As of yet, all actors confirmed for the series are reprising their roles from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Sean Gunn has also provided the physical motion capture for Rocket Raccoon and Thanos, though it is unlikely he will for this series.
At the 2019 Disney D23, Marvel stated that almost the entire cast of the MCU will be playing on the series, though it did not confirm any more voices. The same panel confirmed a story that Steve Rogers would become Iron Man though did not confirm if Chris Evans was returning after he said he was done with the role.
There are currently twenty-three episodes announced, which is the same number of movies in the MCU at the time of the announcement.
