Kevin Feige Talks Potential ‘What If…?’ Live-Action Spinoff
One of the surprise successes of Marvel’s brilliant Phase Four has been their first venture in the medium of an animated series, and there may be more to come from the project as Kevin Feige talks about potential What If…? live-action spinoff.
Marvel’s lauded phase four has featured some of the most interesting and thought-provoking projects of the decade-long run of the MCU.
With MArvels What If…? becoming the immense success that it became, and a season two already in the works for the series, it is not a major surprise to see Marvel’s head speak on the potential of the series to branch out into different avenues of storytelling.
Kevin Feige talks about a potential What If…? live-action spinoff that could come after the first two successful seasons of the series.
The quotes themselves came from an episode of Marvel Studios: Assembled, and was reported by ComicBook.com.
Feige stated, “I really believe the deepening fictional mythologies is a way to appreciate them more, is a way to understand them more, look at them in a different way.”
The head of Marvel continued, “They’ve got now two seasons of What If…? ideas underway that’s some of the best storytelling we’ve ever had that you may see spin into other mediums. It’s really the most uniquely beautiful animated series I’ve seen in a long time.”
Regardless of some of the negative reviews of the series, including our own, What If…? had become a sandbox for unique takes on classic MCU stories; embedded with creativity and risk-taking that transforms what could be any old animated MArvel series, and created something much greater.
Feige has been the orchestrator of the massively successful MCU since its debut in 2008; with over a decade of more than 20 incredible films, his resume speaks for itself.
Potentially bringing What If…? stories to live-action is an interesting idea that could bring some fan-favorite ideas to the big screen.
Many have rumored that Jefferey Wrights The Watcher could be headed to the MCU at some point, which could give weight to Feige’s statements; such a character would be vital to the happenings of Phase Five, and the introduction of the Fantastic Four.
