What If: Marvel Studios Producing New Series for Disney+

Courtesy of Marvel

According to The Wrap, Marvel Studios is now in the process of developing a brand new animated series for Disney+ that would be based off of the series of What If comics. With Tom Hiddleston already confirmed to star in his own live action Loki series, I wouldn't be surprised if there was a stipulation in his contract that made it so he had to voice an episode of What If too. But while many of their planned TV shows will still follow the continuity of the MCU, Slash Film is reporting of an animated series that will prove to be a major exception.

Originally launched in 1977, the What If series has published sporadically tackled a variety of intriguing questions such as What if Loki had found the hammer of Thor? The series is reportedly being developed by Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios, which handles the MCU films, giving the series a boost of credibility.

What if Captain America hadn't vanished during World War II? What if Thanos joined the Avengers? What if Professor X had become Juggernaut?

The series included some truly weird premises, including turning Wolverine into the Lord of the vampires, transforming Marvel's writers and artists into the Fantastic Four, and postulating what would happen if Venom had possessed The Punisher.

One of the big issues with Marvel's TV shows like ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is that they were always forced to be reactive stories to the far more important canon of the films, and they were never able to take any big swings in the overarching story because it would interfere with the bigger plotlines of the movies. What if Phoenix had not died? What if Captain America was elected President? . While these comics are non-canon, elements have managed to leak into proper Marvel lore, including the introduction of Spider-Girl in What If Vol. 2 #105 - What if Spider-Man and Mary Jane's child had survived? What if Namor grew up on land with his human father? What if Elektra had lived? What if Aunt May had been killed instead of Uncle Ben? What if the Avengers had become pawns of Korvac?
