More Loki is coming in What If…?
The next big Marvel show on Disney Plus is here. What If…? is an animated series that poses alternative scenarios to pivotal Marvel Cinematic Universe moments, such as Peggy Carter taking the Super-Soldier Formula instead of Steve Rogers.
The 10-episode series takes Loki’s Wednesday weekly release spot, with episode 1 arriving on Aug. 11. Kevin Feige has already confirmed another 10-episode second season is in development. How much does the animated series play into upcoming events in Phase 4 of the MCU? That remains to be seen, but tune in just in case the multiverse chaos unleashed in Loki ties in here.

What’s What If…? about?
Marvel’s What If…? is based on a Marvel comic from the ’70s that retells a famous storyline in an alternative reality. The first issue had Spider-Man accepted into the Fantastic Four, for example.
The Disney Plus series will feature Jeffery Wright as the voice of Uata, a member of an advanced alien race known as the Watchers. He’ll narrate the alternative reality events playing out, with a massive voice cast including the late Chadwick Boseman, Josh Brolin, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman, Hayley Atwell, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Paul Rudd, Sebastian Stan and Taika Waititi. Wow.
