Marvel’s ‘What If…?’ Announces The First Three Episode Titles
With the newest MCU series fast approaching, fans have reached a fever pitch as their anticipation is nearly impalpable; answering that excitement, it appears Marvel’s What If…? announces the first three episode titles!
With the massive hit that Marvel’s Disney+ exclusive series has been for fans of the MCU, it is no wonder that their next endeavor, What If…?, has been one of the summer’s most anticipated streaming releases.
Telling the stories of some o the world’s most beloved MCU characters in new, and imaginative, ways is something that fans have been ecstatic about since the series announcement years ago.
Wandavision, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, and Loki have all performed wonderfully as fans have embraced the brilliance of the Marvel helmed series, and the stories they’ve chosen to tell in the new long-form storytelling model with Disney+
What If…? shouldn’t be any different, as the MCU-connected series will operate under the newly fractured Multiverse- as explored in Loki’s season one finale- to explore stories that are wildly creative.
With everyone’s anticipation for the series reaching a deafening degree, Fans can now look forward to the quickly developing release schedule as Marvel’s What If…? announces the first three episode titles.
Let’s highlight the first three episode titles, and comment on what fans can expect!
Episode I: Captain Carter (Premiering August 11th)
The first episode, premiering early august, is one of the most anticipated for MArvel fans; and one that the promotional material for the series focused heavily on.
With news releasing earlier this month that Captain Carter will play a crucial role in the series future seasons, the episode will work well to establish the mainstay, and her relationship with The Watcher, moving forward.
With Hayley Atwell reprising her role as Peggy Carter, fans will be able to see what would happen if the first agent of SHIELD actually took the super-soldier serum instead of Steve Rogers.
Episode II: T’challa as Starlord (Premiering August 18th)
Another highly anticipated episode for Marvel’s What If…? series, this incarnation of the character has been the second most prominently featured character in the promotional material; which makes sense with this newly revealed information.
The episode will follow the story of T’Challa, except a story that is new to Marvel fans; instead of growing to embrace his role as king of Wakanda- eventually carrying the Black Panther mantle- this episode will ask the question, what if T’Challa was kidnapped by the Ravagers, and Not Peter Quill?
This episode will feature the final performance of T’Challa actor Chadwick Boseman, who unfortunately passed on last year after a four-year battle with Cancer.
Episode III: Loki On Earth (Premiering August 25th)
This newly announced episode has less information released to the public, but the title can give fans an idea of what is the focus of this installment.
Loki will be, once again, voiced by the brilliant Tom Hiddleston, as he reprises his beloved role for the series.
It is uncertain as to what the plotline of the episode will be, but one can surmise that it follows Loki’s mischievous ways as an earth child; as opposed to being the Asgardian raised prince he was.
