WHAT IF Animated Series Confirmed; First Episode Will See Peggy Carter Become Captain America

We had been told to expect some animated content for Disney+, and now it's been confirmed that Marvel is currently developing a What If? anthology series for the streaming service. More past the jump...

We recently reported on a rumor that Marvel was in the process of developing a What If? animated anthology series for Disney+ streaming service, and Kevin Feige confirmed as much during the Marvel Studios segment of tonight's Disney+ presentation.

The show will re-imagine certain key moments and scenarios from Marvel Comics history to see how things might have played out if some significant detail had been altered, and the first episode will reportedly ask "What If" Peggy Carter had become the super-soldier known as Captain America (well, Captain Britain would be more accurate) instead of Steve Rogers, who will remain "Skinny Steve" and fight alongside Peggy in a suit of armor.

No word on Hayley Atwell potentially returning to voice the character, but it sounds like there's a decent chance she will as Feige also confirmed that “new and returning cast members will be lending their voice to the animated counterparts.”

We don't know which other existing comic stories the series will adapt, but “What if Loki had found the hammer of Thor?” is expected to be covered at some point.
