Marvel Studios Reportedly Developing 'What If?' Series For Disney Plus

Marvel reportedly developing 'What If?' animated anthology series for Disney+

Details on whether the series will adapt more stories from the comics (aside from the tale mentioned earlier) or create entirely new scenarios are now unknown, though they will be based on what fans have seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as opposed to comic book canon.

In possibly the most surprising news of the day, Marvel Studios will turn one of Marvel's strangest comics into an animated series for Disney+, the studios upcoming streaming service, according to /Film. As per a media release by Disney, it looks like we are just around a week away from the acquisition being finalised.

From Kevin Feige, the animated series will reportedly "provide stories that explore how the Marvel Cinematic Universe might have unfolded if key moments in its history had not occurred as they did in recognized canon".

The low-commitment for the series would mean Disney could accommodate some of the biggest Marvel talent.

SlashFilm reports Marvel Studios is producing an animated series for Disney+ based on the What If comic book series. That's not a premise for a real episode though. Yet.

With so many series and movies going to Disney Plus, a very fan-centric series like What If could be overlooked for more popular titles-movies like Avengers: Infinity War. If you're gonna do a streaming service and do the Netflix thing where you upload an entire season at once, fans can pick and choose which episodes they want to watch in any order based on their scenario or characters. The series has always revolved around stories that diverge from what happens in regular continuity or set completely outside of it so, for example, What If...

Other than the What If TV show being in the works, nothing else is really known about the Disney+ property at this point. But, perhaps Hulu could avoid that pitfall altogether.

Hulu's adult-animated series are now in development and set for debut in 2020.
