• What If it was Peggy Carter who got the supersoldier serum instead of Steve Rogers?
  • What If Tony Stark was rescued from having a bomb explode near him in the desert by another superpowered hero, and never became Iron Man?
  • What if Yondu fought shoulder to shoulder with Black Panther?
  • What If the Avengers all became zombies?

One of the most intriguing titles Marvel has ever run is the venerable What If … series, which examines how the iconic stories of Marvel’s iconic characters would change if something important in their origin stories were altered. The new series on Disney+ is animated, and takes on some of the best stories the What If … title has to offer – including some new ones.

The series doesn’t skimp on original actor’s voices, either. With 23 films and counting in the MCU, there are a lot of original voices to choose from, and the series boasts the return of the following actors reprising their Marvel Comics movie roles:
