Marvel What If series reportedly coming to Disney Plus

14 March 2019

Details on whether the series will adapt more stories from the comics (aside from the tale mentioned earlier) or create entirely new scenarios are now unknown, though they will be based on what fans have seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as opposed to comic book canon.

According to a new report from /Film, Marvel are now in the early stages of development for an animated show based on their popular What If series of comics. As per a media release by Disney, it looks like we are just around a week away from the acquisition being finalised.

The comic, called "What If...', was an anthology series examining turning points in Marvel's history, imagining alternate worlds where key characters" lives unfolded differently. Kevin Feige is set to oversee the project but these individual What If stories won't be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While most of the "What if?" scenarios explored by the series have yet to be revealed, Slash Film relays word that one episode will be an adaptation of Vol.1 #47 of the comics, which answers the question, "What if Loki had found the hammer of Thor?".

With so many series and movies going to Disney Plus, a very fan-centric series like What If could be overlooked for more popular titles-movies like Avengers: Infinity War.

Disney+ is slated to debut later this year and will reportedly cost less than an subscription to Netflix, although the price is irrelevant if subscribing means we can watch Wolverine fight Al Capone or Captain America versus the Confederacy.

Considering all of the options available, a What If series will only appeal to die-hard Marvel fans who are familiar with the anthology of stories.
