Both posters give a tantalizing taste of what’s in store for us over the course of the first season of this upcoming animated series, the first episode of which will be released for streaming on Wednesday, August 11th, 2021.
This isn’t the first poster we’ve been treated to for What If…?, Marvel Blog True Believers! Earlier in the week, on Tuesday, August 3rd, we also saw an epic Captain Carter poster.
Part of what makes What If…? such an exciting proposition is the fact that each episode is a window into a whole new timeline, and these three posters are emphasizing that setup. All three have a very distinct flavor, and while they all feature somewhat familiar characters… they have all been subjected to a twist!
We’ve already seen a hint of Marvel Zombies in Spider-Man: Far From Home, but it looks like we’re really going to get to spend some time with the undead in What If…?
Which one of the upcoming Marvel’s What If…? episodes are you most excited to see when the series premieres later this month? We’re waiting to hear from you! Give us a shout-out and let us know what you think in the comment section, Marvel Blog True Believers!
