WHAT IF...? Official Season 3 Stills Feature The Return Of Sam Wilson's Captain America WHAT IF...? Official Season 3 Stills Feature The Return Of Sam Wilson's Captain America

We haven't seen Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) since The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, but before the new Captain America returns in Brave New World, he will be a part of the third season of What If...?.

The second season of Marvel Studios' animated anthology series, What If...?, debuted on Disney+ about a month ago to the day, and the studio has now thanked viewers for making the show such a success by sharing a first official look at season 3 via four promo stills.

The images spotlight the return of Black Widow's Red Guardian, who can be seen looking out a window alongside Bucky Barnes, and being held in the grip of a giant individual who could be either Scott Lang or his daughter, Cassie (those eyebrows suggest the former).

We also have what appear to be a couple of giant Marvel mechs, one of which is decked out in Captain America colors.

Speaking of the Sentinel of Liberty, fans are sure to be most excited about the return of Sam Wilson's take on Captain America, who we haven't seen since the events of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

Former head writer A.C. Bradley recently revealed that the show was initially unable to utilize Wilson since he had not yet been established as Captain America in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier at the time the scripts were being written.

"We also couldn't do Sam Wilson's Captain America because, we didn't know when that would be coming out," Bradley explained. "Again, we were writing Season 2 as The Falcon and The Winter Soldier paused shooting and the scripts were being re-written because of other things. We don't know when anything is airing. So, we couldn't touch it because we're not allowed to introduce… It makes sense, you let the character live in live-action first and then go play in the multiverse."

Check out the images at the link below, and let us know if you're looking forward to more What If...? in the comments section.

"Season two of 'What If...?' continues the journey as The Watcher guides viewers through the vast multiverse, introducing brand new and familiar faces throughout the MCU," reads the season 2 synopsis. "The series questions, revisits and twists classic Marvel Cinematic moments with an incredible voice cast that includes a host of stars who reprise their iconic roles."

This that Gundam?

@HammerLegFoot -

Naw, Gundam is awesome. This is...not.
Origame - 1/23/2024, 3:08 PM
@HammerLegFoot - the most American Gundam ever.

Get bandit kieth to pilot it!
GhostDog - 1/23/2024, 12:18 PM
They remembered he existed
Origame - 1/23/2024, 3:09 PM
@GhostDog - it's funny that captain Carter is more of a focus 🤣
GhostDog - 1/23/2024, 3:28 PM
@Origame - sick of her ass lol
Origame - 1/23/2024, 3:30 PM
@GhostDog - oh me too. I just think it's funny how they kept making a big deal of Sam taking up the mantle, how a black man would be carrying the shield, then captain Carter carries it more than him
Toonstrack - 1/23/2024, 7:29 PM
@Origame - is captain carters getting a film? No? Then wtf are you talking about lol
Origame - 1/23/2024, 8:21 PM
@Toonstrack - I'm literally talking about what we've gotten.

Also, they're reshooting most of it after it did terribly. So I won't hold my breath on seeing it any time soon. And I wouldn't be surprised if they greenlit a captain Carter movie that ends up releasing first 🤣
Toonstrack - 1/24/2024, 2:13 AM
@Origame - they arent reshootinf it because it did terribly. They reshoot it because fiege mandated rewrites over the course of the strikes for several projects.

A captain carter film would be fine but sam Wilson literally still is gonna have a movie and she doesn't. Theres no competition between them anywhere other than your head.
Origame - 1/24/2024, 4:25 AM
@Toonstrack - 1) dude, it had low test audience scores. Just like the marvels. But I guess we'll just consider that a coincidence 🙄

Also, it's Hollywood. I'll believe it when there's a trailer.
Radders - 1/24/2024, 8:53 AM
@Toonstrack - Its true there's no competition, Peggy is a great character Sam's a good side kick
Toonstrack - 1/26/2024, 10:39 PM
@Radders - they're both good characters and sam is a good leader as well. Hes never been a sidekick hes always been a partner.
Toonstrack - 1/26/2024, 10:40 PM
@Origame - the test audience scores no one ever saw, and that has nothing to do with sams value as a character anyway.

The movies coming out. Thats confirmed.
Origame - 1/27/2024, 6:43 AM
@Toonstrack - 1) it has to do with Sam's value as captain america. Nothing captain Carter was in had this kind of sh!t put through, unless it was to specifically put her in 🤣

2) Batgirl was confirmed. And we saw what happened there.
Radders - 1/29/2024, 8:38 AM
@Toonstrack - Nope he's a sidekick, or hero support if you prefer
Toonstrack - 1/30/2024, 7:33 PM
@Radders - hes never been one and you don't understand this characters history.
Radders - 1/31/2024, 8:46 AM
@Toonstrack - In the comics he's not, in the MCU he is
Toonstrack - 1/31/2024, 11:59 PM
@Radders - hes not in either lol he was falcon before even meeting cao in both
Cleander - 1/23/2024, 12:24 PM
I only watched season one and I don't see myself going back - give me fantasy and stop with this military crap if they're not going to criticize it.

Sam Wilson facing off Red Hulk outcome:

WhateverItTakes - 1/23/2024, 12:50 PM
@garu - that's him facing up to his grandma
kingruggid - 1/23/2024, 5:36 PM
@garu - more like a bowl of soup with a few soggy crackers mushed up in it that was spilled on the ground. That to me is the dumbest part of him being Cap period. He's Cap with a shield and can fly but can get slapped out of the air by literally anything or villain with a good aim and common sense and he's Captain Crunched America. I laughed off this for 16 mins and almost got fired because of you today at work @Garu... The laugh was awesome!

Finally, some damn Sam Wilson content.

What is Captain Falcon was up to the job........
marvel72 - 1/23/2024, 1:11 PM
What If? Sam Wilson was Captain America.
Repian - 1/23/2024, 1:15 PM
They are in front of the...

Captain Rogers. The leader of Shield.

"fans are sure to be most excited about the return of Sam Wilson's take on Captain America"

Is it possible to report an article for trolling?

Last time we will see the comic accurate primarily white suit ever again. Brave new world is replacing it

Falcon lining crispy
AnthonyVonGeek - 1/23/2024, 1:37 PM
Can’t wait to hear him get all preachy again. 🥱😴
HashTagSwagg - 1/23/2024, 3:12 PM
@AnthonyVonGeek - He went from an interesting fun supporting character to "hey everyone, I'm gay..... I mean, I'm black now encase you've never noticed"
Waifuslayer - 1/23/2024, 3:32 PM
@AnthonyVonGeek - that goofy ass costume makes it even better.
marvel72 - 1/23/2024, 3:44 PM
@HashTagSwagg -

Toonstrack - 1/23/2024, 7:29 PM
@AnthonyVonGeek - as he should be. Cap has always been preachy.
dragon316 - 1/23/2024, 1:43 PM
Never like what if comics gave what if animated series chance didn’t like it no better
Matchesz - 1/23/2024, 1:53 PM
I feel they use this What If show as an experiment to see what resonates with audiences and use it as a consensus to see what they should include it into the main mcu timeline since they’re all out of ideas. Like Cap Carter for example, served no purpose but to get cut in half but hey! shes from the cartoon
