Marvel Studios has released a mid-season trailer for What If…? that teases Tony Stark’s iconic Avengers: Endgame snap.
What If…? has finally crossed the mid-season mark with an episode that puts the focus on Killmonger and Tony Stark. So far, the series has covered already iconic storylines like Peggy Carter’s stint as Peggy Carter, Marvel Zombies, and Doctor Strange pretty much obliterating the universe. All in all, reception for the series has been overwhelmingly positive, no doubt thanks to the stellar animation and impressive voice cast assembled by Marvel Studios.
To celebrate the mid-season mark, Marvel Studios has released a brand new trailer that recaps the first half of What If…? while also teasing what’s next. The trailer is filled with tons of new footage and moments that are easy to miss. For one, the trailer teases the return of Evil Doctor Strange, Captain Carter, and Tony Stark’s iconic hero-saving moment in Avengers: Endgame.
There’s a lot to unpack in this short and sweet trailer. For one, Avengers villains Thanos and Ultron are briefly seen, which should definitely make for compelling episodes. Loki, though now redeemed, also seems to be making a villainous return. It’s clear that the back half of the season will be revisiting the first half, so it begs the question if the series will go down the meta route.
Here is the synopsis for What If…?:
“Exploring pivotal moments from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and turning them on their head, leading the audience into uncharted territory.”
What If…? features the voices of Josh Brolin, Natalie Portman, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Jeremy Renner, Paul Rudd, Mark Ruffalo, Michael B Jordan, Chadwick Boseman, Jeffrey Wright, Hayley Atwell, and other major stars from the MCU.
The first five episodes of What If…? are available to stream on Disney Plus. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the series, Tony Stark, and the rest of the MCU’s Phase 4, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content!
