All the Marvel fans, it’s high time to get back to your seats and bring on the food and drinks to feel the adrenaline rush once again as Marvel is all set to release its next super hit series, ‘What If…?’ However, you will be disappointed to know that seven of our favorite Marvel Stars are seemingly not returning for What If…? But why? Let’s find out about this in the post.

Marvel Studios revealed that its first-ever animated series will release on Aug 11, 2021, on Disney Plus. This upcoming series will have 10 episodes with new episodes dropping on the platform every Wednesday.

As soon as the Marvel Studio launched its trailer, the disappointment began to increase among fans. As there are a lot of Superheroes like Robert Downey Jr., who have not signed on to voice their animated Marvel superhero in the upcoming series. Even if their characters appear in several episodes, they are not coming back!

But why? Is it because Marvel’s animated movie is not doing justice to their role, or they are busy with other projects? Let’s see about all this in detail below.

Just Think!

What if Spiderman changes into another superhero?

What if Doctor Strange gets trap in a secret world?

What if Captain America becomes a zombie?

So many unanswered what if’s!

Well, it is the first animated series of its kind and is believed to be the gateway to enter the multiverse of unlimited possibilities.

Its trailer was released by the Marvel studio a few days back and was enough to predict the storyline of the series.

According to the trailer, it has a mixture of all the iconic moments of the Avengers series by far, but in an altered way. It will recreate all the important scenes in a manner to show what would have happened if things happened in an altered way?

Even the roles are altered!

Well, that’s something crazy to watch!

Leaving this discussion here, let’s see what this trailer shows.

Before jumping to that, do you remember the first MCU movie, Iron man’s first scene?

Yes, it was a war scene where Tony Stark saw a Stark Industries’ missile next to him because of which he got to know about the dark side of trading in the weapons.

However, the tailer adds on to this scene where he is saved by Killmonger.

So, this series will show what if Killmonger and Tony Stark have met each other at the beginning of the story? And, what if Killmonger became the hero in the story, which is in contrast to his role in the movie.

Really, What if?

Now, think again! What if Dr. Strange uses the time stone for himself? What if he is lost in an unknown portal?

If this happens, how will Avengers kill Thanos?

Oh! This story is getting exciting now!

Also, if you remember, Thanos sacrifices Gamora to get one of the stones by pushing her down the hill. But, what if she is not dead? What if she fights against Thanos in the end?

This isn’t the end here!

Yes, not now!

It is sure you will go into the land of a dilemma if get to know about the other possibilities.



and, Think!

What if, Killmonger becomes Black Panther? What if King Tachala becomes star-lord? What if Ultron takes over Vision’s body? What if Ultron has all the infinity stones? What if Loki unites with Thor’s friends and gets support from the Asgod’s army against fury to conquer Earth?

What if Peggy carter takes captain America’s serum? What if she fights against the evil octopus dragon and saves Dr. strange.

This trailer triggered a lot of Audiences just like me!
