There’s no shortage of Marvel series on Disney+ in 2021.
“WandaVision” wowed critics in the spring, “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” delivered cinematic action and “Loki” prepared the big plot for the next feature films. But before the “Hawkeye” series also launches in November, Disney+ will offer the weirdest MCU project yet in August: “What If … ?”, an animated series.
Each episode will tell different alternative stories to the MCU heroes.
What if T’Challa, not Peter Quill, had been kidnapped by Yondu? What if Tony Stark had never been injured in Afghanistan? What if Peggy Carter had become Captain America instead of Steve Rogers? The series will deal with the newly introduced multiverse and brings together a wide range of MCU characters: over 50 characters will be in the mix.
These MCU characters are involved in “What If … ?”!
We have listed for you all the stars who are involved in the series – and listed in parentheses their MCU characters. Among them are: Andy Serkis (Ulysses Klaue), Angela Bassett (Ramonda), Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange), Benedict Wong (Wong), Benicio Del Toro (The Collector), Bradley Whitford (John Flynn), Carrie Coon (Proxima Midnight), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Chris Sullivan (Taserface), Clancy Brown (Surtur), Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), Danai Gurira (Okoye), David Dastmalchian (Kurt), Djimon Hounsou (Korath the Pursuer), Dominic Cooper (Howard Stark), Don Cheadle (War Machine), Emily VanCamp (Sharon Carter), Evangeline Lilly (Wasp), Frank Grillo (Crossbones), Georges St-Pierre (Batroc), Hayley Atwell (Peggy Carter), Jaimie Alexander (Sif), Jeff Goldblum (Grandmaster), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), John Kani (T’Chaka), Jon Favreau (Happy Hogan), Josh Brolin (Thanos), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Kat Dennings (Darcy Lewis), Kurt Russell (Ego), Leslie Bibb (Christine Everheart), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner), Michael Douglas (Hank Pym), Michael B. Jordan (Killmonger), Michael Rooker (Yondu), Natalie Portman (Thor), Neal McDonough (Dum Dum Dugan), Ophelia Lovibond (Carina), Paul Bettany (Vision), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Rachel House (Topaz), Rachel McAdams (Christine Palmer), Samuel L.

Characters will also include Iron Man, Steve Rogers, Spider-Man, Scarlet Witch, Captain Marvel and Black Widow, though at least in the original version they will not be voiced by their respective actors. Some returnees are also extremely obscure: Bradley Whitford previously played the character John Flynn only in the MCU short film “Agent Carter”, so his return will be the first contact with him in this role for many Marvel fans.
