A brand new clip from Marvel’s What If…? shows Steve Rogers donning an old-school Iron Man suit.
What If…? is one of the most interesting projects coming out of Marvel Studio’s Phase 4. The company’s first animated series, What If…? focused on detailing and expanding upon hypothetical storylines, character arcs, and events. One such storyline that the television series proposes is: what if Peggy Carter became a super-soldier instead of Steve Rogers? The series features an entire episode where Peggy Carter dons the title of Captain Carter and takes on HYDRA. While it’s great to see Peggy getting some much-needed limelight, fans were disappointed to see Steve get sidelined in the hypothetical story arc. It turns out that hardcore Captain America fans shouldn’t fret as the What If…? episode has interesting plans for the would-be super-soldier.
A brand new clip from the show teases Steve Rogers taking on the role of another superhero: Iron Man. The brief clip released by Marvel shows Captain Carter in action on the frontlines. When she calls in for air support, none other than Steve Rogers appears. Instead of donning a star-spangled suit, Rogers is seen in a classic, old-school Iron Man suit. Rogers is clearly suited to the task as he destroys a series of tanks. Bucky Barnes is also briefly seen baffled at his buddy’s slick new suit.
