It appears even the multiverse has its limits. The head author for What If…? Season 2 has revealed that the inventive staff behind the sequence couldn’t use a key Marvel character.
What If…? Season 2 was a shocking vacation deal with for Marvel followers, with the Disney Plus sequence serving 9 days of pure multiverse bliss. However, it appears even the MCU’s wildest sequence has its limits, with the present’s head author AC Bradley revealing that her staff was unable to make use of Sam Wilson as Captain America because of the sequence’ manufacturing timeline.
“We also couldn’t do Sam Wilson’s Captain America because, we didn’t know when that would be coming out,” AC Bradley defined on the Phase Zero podcast. “Again, we were writing Season 2 as The Falcon and The Winter Soldier paused shooting and the scripts were being re-written because of other things. We don’t know when anything is airing. So, we couldn’t touch it because we’re not allowed to introduce… It makes sense, you let the character live in live-action first and then go play in the multiverse.”
It definitely is sensible that Marvel wouldn’t need Sam Wilson’s debut as Captain America within the MCU to be in an animated anthology sequence. However, it’s undoubtedly a disgrace that he wasn’t capable of not less than make a cameo in What If…? Season 2. Though with Season 3 already deep into manufacturing, it’s doubtless he’ll make his animated Disney Plus debut sooner somewhat than later!
What If…? options the voices of Josh Brolin, Natalie Portman, Samuel L. Jackson, Jeremy Renner, Paul Rudd, Mark Ruffalo, Jeffrey Wright, Hayley Atwell, and different main stars from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The sequence “flips the script on the MCU, reimagining famous events from the films in unexpected ways,” in response to Marvel’s official description of the sequence.
In addition to the second season of What If…?, Marvel can be engaged on two extra animated sequence — Marvel Zombies and Spider-Man: Freshman Year. The former is a direct spin-off of What If…? episode 5, which revolves round a Marvel Cinematic Universe that suffers from a zombie plague.
All episodes of What If…? season 2 are actually accessible to stream on Disney Plus. Stay tuned for the newest information concerning the way forward for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and ensure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for extra content material!
