Marvel's WHAT IF...? Showrunner Clarifies The Rumors About The Show's Episode Count

Coming out of D23, reports circulated that the 23 episodes of Marvel's animated What-If...? series would be dedicated to showcasing an alternate route for each of the MCU films released to date.

Ashley Bradley, showrunner for Marvel's What If...?, has clarified comments made by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige at Disney's D23 Expo back in August which seemingly indicated that each episode of the animated show would directly correlate to a specific Marvel Cinematic Universe film. 

"That is a rumor," began Bradley, who spoke with Discussfing Film after the D23 event.  She explained, "Kevin said that we will be exploring every movie in a new way, but not every episode is about one movie if that makes sense."

In short, don't expect to see an alternate telling of every single MCU film released between Iron Man and Avengers: Endgame. As an example, Bradley added, "On the reel [shown at D23 Expo], there is this image of a Star-Lord T’Challa because we wanted to see what if the worlds of Black Panther and the Guardians of the Galaxy collided? That was taking two universes, two to three movies, kind of twisting them in new ways."

As the interview drew to a close, Bradley was asked to directly clear up the aforementioned rumor circulating the internet about one episode corresponding to a specific film and responded, "That’s not the objective. The objective is to hopefully see the majority of characters from all 23 movies, You’ll see multiple characters in an episode."

Given the situation with Sony and Spider-Man, don't be surprised if we skip any alternate retellings of Spider-Man: Homecoming or Far From Home!

Marvel Studios' What If...? is currently slated to premiere on Disney+ Summer 2021.
