Marvel Studios is reportedly set to produce a new animated anthology TV series, based on its popular “What If” comic book series, which will air on the upcoming Disney+ streaming service.
Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios will oversee the series which will NOT be canon in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Instead, the stories will explore how the Marvel Cinematic Universe might have unfolded if key moments in its history had not occurred as they did in recognized canon.
One of the episodes, for example, will explore the idea of ‘What if Loki had found the hammer of Thor?’. Each episode will follow a whole new scenario twisting up the MCU canon (and NOT the comic canon).
The possibility also allows some of the main actors from the live-action Marvel Cinematic Universe movies to reprise their roles if they so wish and play with the alternate possibilities in a part requiring only a tiny fraction of the time commitment of their regular film roles.
