Marvel’s What If.? has been a hit with fans since its premiere, but the show has yet to include any X-Men characters. According to creators Bryan Andrews and A.C. Bradley, Marvel Studios wants to make sure those characters debut in live-action properties first. They explained that they weren’t allowed to use the X-Men in any of the What If.? episodes as Marvel wants to give them their proper debut in live-action before exploring their stories in animated form. This was also the case with Sam Wilson’s Captain America character, who was revealed at the end of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
The creators further explained that a similar situation occurred because the timing of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’s release wasn’t set in stone when Season 2 of What If.? was being written. Since they didn’t know when anything was airing, they couldn’t touch it because they’re not allowed to introduce a character in animated form before they appear in live action. It makes sense to let the character live in live action first and then come play in the multiverse.
Despite the limitations, Season 2 of Marvel’s What If.? continues to explore the vast multiverse, introducing brand new and familiar faces throughout the MCU. The series features an incredible voice cast that includes a host of stars who reprise their iconic roles, including Jeffrey Wright as The Watcher, Hayley Atwell as Captain Carter, Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, and many more. While fans will have to wait to see X-Men characters in the animated series, they can enjoy the exciting journeys of other characters and explore new corners of the MCU through the show.Follow us to get free & fast MCU Movies/Shows Leaks & News
