What If Season 2 Marvel The Watcher

It seems even the multiverse must come to an end. What If…? head writer A.C. Bradley reveals she’ll be stepping away from the MCU series following the release of season 2 on Disney Plus.

A.C. Bradley is the unsung hero of What If…?, penning some of the best episodes from the Disney Plus series including What If… The Watcher Broke His Oath? from season 1 and What If… Happy Hogan Saved Christmas? from season 2. However, following a truly stellar run on the series, Bradley reveals her plans to step away from the MCU to pursue new mediums of storytelling.

“Last #WhatIf tweet! This ep is my absolute FAVORITE and marks my final What If script.” A.C. Bradley wrote in a social media post about a preview for an episode from season 2. “After season two, I made the decision to move on from Marvel. It’s been a fun ride, but it’s time for new adventures and mediums. All my love to the cast, crew, & fans!”

Of course, A.C. Bradley isn’t gone for good yet. As she said, she has written at least one more episode for What If…? season 3, and it’s clear her influences on season 2 will be felt through the rest of the series. However, it seems time for the head writer to move beyond the MCU. May she have the best of luck in those future endeavors!

A Multiverse of Possibilities

What If…? features the voices of Josh Brolin, Natalie Portman, Samuel L. Jackson, Jeremy Renner, Paul Rudd, Mark Ruffalo, Jeffrey Wright, Hayley Atwell and other major stars from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The series “flips the script on the MCU, reimagining famous events from the films in unexpected ways,” according to Marvel’s official description of the series.

In addition to the second season of What If…?, Marvel is also working on two more animated series — Marvel Zombies and Spider-Man: Freshman Year. The former is a direct spin-off of What If…? episode five, which revolves around a Marvel Cinematic Universe that suffers from a zombie plague.

All episodes of What If…? season 2 are now available to stream on Disney Plus. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
