Exciting news Marvel fans – Marvel is reportedly developing a television show based on the comic book, What If?.
According to Slash Film, the series will be an animated show to appear on forthcoming streaming service, Disney+. Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige will be overseeing the project.
What is Marvel’s What If?
What If? was (and occasionally still is) a series of comic books which recount stories from the Marvel Universe, but from a new angle. For example, in the Marvel Universe Peter Parker became Spider-Man after being bitten by a radioactive spider. But what if the spider never bit Parker?
Or what if the Fantastic Four didn’t become the Fantastic Four? What if Magneto killed the X-Men?
You get the idea.
During the 1990s, I was a BIG fan of Marvel’s What If? and I’ve longed for a television series based on this comic. I really hope this show comes to fruition – it has the potential to be a fantastic anthology series.
