Marvel’s What If…? is an anthology series that offers a unique take on existing characters and storylines in the MCU. In a press conference, executive producer Brad Winderbaum discussed whether storylines in What If…? will be explored further in other MCU projects.
Winderbaum said, “Without going into great detail, I can tell you that What If…? as a project [and] as a story that exists in the MCU is as important as any other. It’s woven into that same tapestry. So, there’s a lot of potential.” Although Winderbaum doesn’t really offer any details about the future of stories in What If…?, he seems optimistic about exploring these stories in future MCU projects. It remains to be seen, whether characters like Captain Carter will get their own series or movie. It won’t surprising to see these characters get their own dedicated project as Marvel Phase 4 is all about the multiverse, where different takes on established characters can exist.
During the same press conference, Winderbaum revealed that Captain Carter will be returning in What If…? season 2. The creative team behind the series has already started working on the second season and they are planning to feature Captain Carter from season 1 in some capacity in the next season. Winderbaum explained, “We realized as we started developing the second season, that Captain Carter was going to be the character we would revisit in every season, and continue that adventure.”
Marvel’s What If…? premieres on Disney Plus Hostar Premium on August 11.
