In the wake of the current controversy involving Vin Diesel, it was disclosed that Marvel Studios has cast a replacement voice actor for the beloved character Groot after the broadcast of What If…? Season 2. Groot made an appearance as a supporting character in the Nebula-centric episode of the first episode of What If…? Season 2, which was set in an alternate reality in which Ronan beat Thanos and Nebula joined the Nova Corps. The episode’s credits, according to sources, verified that veteran Marvel voice actor Fred Tatasciore has taken Diesel’s position as Groot’s voice in What If…? Season 2, which is the first time the Fast & Furious actor hasn’t provided the voice of his adored character. He had the opportunity to play Groot once more this year in the Disney+ short series I Am Groot Season 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

It’s still unclear as of right now if Diesel’s removal from Marvel Studios’ What If…? The actor’s most recent legal troubles are the reason behind Season 2. On December 21, it was made public that Diesel was being sued for alleged sexual violence on Asta Jonasson, his former assistant, during the 2010 Fast Five filming. President Joe Biden signed the Speak Out Act bill into law more over a year ago, allowing victims of sexual assault and harassment to come forward even though they had previously signed non-disclosure agreements. This case is the result of that legislation. Through his lawyer Bryan Freedman, the popular actor had just lately responded to the complaint. Freedman promptly refuted Jonasson’s claims. “Vin Diesel categorically denies this claim in its entirety,” Freedman stated. “He has never heard of this over 13-year-old allegation made by a supposedly nine-day employee before. These absurd accusations are totally debunked by abundant evidence.”

What If…? delves at other futures within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, drawing inspiration from the 1977 comic book anthology series published by Marvel Comics. The next edition will adapt characters and storylines that were initially featured in Marvel Studios’ current The Multiverse Saga, whereas the events of Season 1 were inspired by the films from The Infinity Saga. The Watcher, an alien watching over happenings inside the Marvel multiverse, has an Emmy winner in Jeffrey Wright, who is reprising his role as his voice. Haley Atwell, Karen Gillan, Seth Green, Taika Waititi, Benedict Cumberbatch, Elizabeth Olsen, Cate Blanchett, Sam Rockwell, Jeremy Renner, Kat Dennings, Jeff Goldblum, Sebastian Stan, and more returning MCU veterans are among the voices heard in Season 2. Furthermore, Devery Jacobs, star of Reservation Dogs, joins the ensemble to provide the voice of Kahhori, a young Mohawk woman and the first Marvel Studios-created original MCU hero. Jacob was also cast in the forthcoming Echo series before getting Kahhori. Her personas in the two MCU series are presently unrelated, nevertheless. In addition to What If…? Season 2, Marvel Studios is getting ready for the 2024 series premieres of a number of animated programmes, such as Eyes of Wakanda, X-Men ’97 revival, and Your Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-Man.
