Marvel's WHAT IF...? Animated Series Could See Live-Action Spinoff Films

Fans seem pretty excited about Marvel’s upcoming What If…? animated series. There are already a couple of seasons planned and as you’ve and , they are going to tell some pretty crazy and fun stories.

Marvel’s What If…? is an anthology series where The Watcher looks at instances where the MCU could have gone in a completely different direction. It will examine the 23 past films in the MCU, but each of the stories will feature one key difference showing how the story would have played out differently.

It turns out that some of these storylines may actually result in live-action spinoff films. It’s not set in stone, by producer Brad Winderbaum says that it’s certainly a possibility. He explained in a recent interview:

“All you have to do to prove that is look back at how many stories from the What If...? comics ended up in the main continuity of the comic universe. My prediction is a similar thing could happen on the cinematic side as well.”

If this were to happen, my money would be on a film involving Captain Carter, as her character is being pushed the hardest in the marketing. She’s also said to be the behind the series. In the end, though, it will all come down to the response from fans. The producer added:

“We wanted each story to be able to be open and shut in that half an hour timeframe, but it's hard not to imagine more chapters with some of these characters. I hope that one day we do get to see more adventures in some of these alternate timelines.”

We’ll just have to wait and see! But, I’m hoping for the same thing.
