Captain Carter (voiced by Hayley Atwell), Black Widow (Lake Bell), Captain America (Josh Keaton) and The Watcher (Jeffrey Wright) are among the key cast members reprising roles in Season 2. Season 1 featured original MCU actors like Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes, Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and many others.
“What If…?” was the first-ever animated show from Marvel Studios, which saw its series debut in August 2021. The show dives into the limitless possibilities that lie in the alternate timelines of the multiverse — for example, what if Ultron from “Avengers: Age of Ultron” succeeded in killing the entire planet? Or what if Thor never had Loki as a brother? These questions are answered in the series, which sees these hypotheticals brought to reality.
Previously announced at the 2022 San Diego Comic Con, Season 2 of “What If…?” features an episode set in medieval times, an episode where “Shang-Chi” characters are pitted against Odin and his Asgardian forces, an episode where Valkyrie and Iron Man race through the streets of the planet Sakaar from “Thor: Ragnorak.”
Bryan Andrews is staying on as director for Season 2 along with head writer A.C. Bradley, and both are credited as executive producers on the series. A third season had already been in the works for the series ahead of its Season 2 release.
