Marvel Studios never ceases to amaze its fans. And their first animated series based inside the ‘MCU’ is the most intriguing addition to the brand. It begins by exploring the enormous cosmos that fans have been waiting to see on the screen. Moreover, each episode of the program reimagines key events from the main timeline and introduces the viewers to all-new versions of their favorite Marvel Comics heroes. This is everything we know about What If…? Season 2
A.C. Bradley’s work has gained critical praise as well as widespread fan adoration. And with such a demanding fanbase like the one Marvel has, that’s noteworthy. Moreover, with the first season of the program coming to a close with a satisfactory finish, viewers must be wondering whether we’ll be taking another journey across the universe anytime soon. If you’re seeking for information about ‘What…If?’ season 2, here’s all we know at Otakukart. Let’s begin!
What if…? Season 2 release date
What if…? season 2 will probably release in late summer of 2022 on Disney Plus. That is if Marvel adheres to the same schedule of the debut season. Moreover, there’s no official information yet. But rest assured that the moment Marvel makes an announcement, we will post an update here for you. Additionally, regarding season one debuted in August and ended in October 2021 with a total of nine episodes in half an hour.
The only place to stream this Marvel Comics Universe show is Disney+. Since The Walt Disney Pictures company purchased Marvel and 20th Century Fox, all of the catalogs now belongs to them. And that includes the distribution rights to every single aspect related to the Marvel franchise, image, and characters. This translates into a gigantic cash-cow and opportunity for the Mickey Mouse company to embark on great programs like What If…?, Wandavision, and others. If you want to get Disney+, a basic subscription will cost you US$ 8,00 a year. With that subscription, you get ad-free, unlimited access to all of the Marvel, Disney, National Geographic, The Simpsons, and Star Wars content.
Season 1’s voice cast includes Jeffrey Wright as The Watcher, an omnipresent cosmic creature who monitors happenings throughout the cosmos. For the first season, several performers return to supply the voices of their individual ‘MCU’ characters. Samuel L. Jackson (as Nick Fury), Benedict Cumberbatch (as Dr. Stephen Strange), Hayley Atwell (as Peggy Carter/Captain Carter), Sebastian Stan (as James “Bucky” Barnes), Mark Ruffalo (as Bruce Banner/Hulk), Tom Hiddleston (as Loki), Chris Hemsworth (as Thor), and Jeremy Renner (as Clint Barton/Hawkeye) are among them.
Some fan-favorite characters are given new voices, including Mick Wingert as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Alexandra Daniels as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, Lake Bell as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, and Josh Keaton as Steve Rogers Moreover, the new voice actors are expected to continue portraying their individual roles in season 2, while the return of the other actors will be contingent on their availability. If they are unable to voice the characters, other voice actors may be substituted. In the first season, late Chadwick Boseman (posthumously) resumed his role as T’Challa. However, owing to the actor’s unfortunate death in 2020, a new voice actor is expected to take over the part if the character appears in season 2.
What if…? season 2 potential plotlines
‘What…If?’ has its inaugural season. The Watcher leads viewers through different realms that reinterpret the events of the ‘MCU’s first three stages. The individual storylines come to a head in the season finale. When The Watcher is forced to breach his pledge not to interfere in order to rescue the multiverse from Ultron. He assembles a team of superheroes from several realities to assist him in defeating Ultron. We can anticipate more fresh individual tales in the second season, as well as remixes of some of our favorite series moments.
One episode concentrating on Tony Stark and Gamora that was deleted from season one will be included in the second season. Bradley has also confirmed that Captain Carter’s tale was planned to be told across many seasons, and we should expect to see her again in season 2. The next season will also make extensive use of Phase 4 sites. The producers are keeping with the anthology style for the second season. And they promised that it’d be all-new tales, lots of fun, new heroes. And they’ll be drawing more from Phase Four than they were clearly able to this season.
What if…? season 1 recap
Captain Carter, Killmonger, Party Thor, Star-Lord T’Challa, and Gamora are among the superheroes gathered by The Watcher from different universes. Strange Supreme greets the heroes, and The Watcher informs them that they have been selected to safeguard the multiverse against Ultron, who has all six infinity stones. The Guardians of the Multiverse are given that name by the Watcher. The heroes devise a strategy to shatter the infinity stones and defeat Ultron using Gamora’s Infinity Crusher. They arrive in a desolate dimension to prepare. But Thor inadvertently invites Ultron, resulting in a cataclysmic confrontation. T’Challa grabs Ultron’s Soul Stone.
Strange conjures a swarm of zombies and Zombie Wanda to keep Ultron at bay while the heroes flee to Ultron’s home reality. Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, the universe’s solitary survivor, meets them there. The Guardians activate the Infinity Crusher, but it fails to destroy the stones since their characteristics change in various universes. Strange engaged in a fight with Ultron, as Natasha launches the arrow carrying Arnim Zola’s AI towards Ultron. Zola defeats Ultron, but Killmonger attempts to take the Infinity Stones. Zola battles Killmonger for custody of the stones. Strange solves the problem at the last minute and saves the day.
What Happens to Ultron at the end of season 1?
When the Guardians fail to destroy the stones, it becomes clear that they will have to devise a new strategy to fight Ultron. Natasha infects Ultron’s AI with Arnim Zola’s AI. The scheme is successful, but Zola takes over Ultron’s body. It is uncertain if Ultron has been totally turned off since the super-sentient computer software is capable of surviving. However, there are no hints in the episode that lead to Ultron’s survival, so we can safely assume the murderous evil is out of the picture. Still, the universe is not secure, as Zola and Killmonger battle for possession of the Infinity Stones. Strange subdues them by using a tactic from The Watcher’s playbook and enclosing them in a different pocket reality, identical to the one Strange found himself in after destroying his universe. In the end, the Multiverse Guardians triumph, and the multiverse is preserved.
What happened to Black Widow?
After restoring the multiverse, the Watcher praises the Guardians of the Multiverse and restores the heroes to their own worlds. Thor and Jane reconcile in Thor’s realm, and Gamora ends up in hers as well. T’Challa visits his Earth to educate Peter Quill on how to be Star-Lord. Captain Carter is reluctant to return to her realm, but The Watcher convinces her that the shield-wielding hero is still required in her reality, and she does so. Strange Supreme swears that he will keep a careful eye on Zola and Killmonger’s pocket reality.
When it is Natasha’s time to return, she declines since there is no life on her planet. She begs The Watcher to return her reality, but he says that he cannot. Natasha is then teleported into the middle of a conflict on a planet that has lost its Black Widow. While this may seem to viewers to be a random world, astute viewers will realize that this is the reality we encounter in the third episode. The absence of the Avengers, as well as the appearance of Captain America and Captain Marvel, corroborate this. Natasha takes action and defeats Loki, implying that she is already at home in this realm.
What is the New Oath?
When we first encounter The Watcher, he is an all-seeing creature who has promised never to meddle with the events of any particular universe. By the conclusion of the first season, however, The Watcher is compelled to breach his oath and interfere in order to stop Ultron. In the process, he gains a new sense of clarity in the last seconds of the season finale. As a result, The Watcher swears a new pledge to defend all universes in the multiverse. In some ways, The Watcher is a metaphor for the ardent fans that avidly monitor every occurrence in the ‘MCU.’ In the last voice-over, the Watcher says that the multiverse is his home. Similarly, the multiverse gives the franchise’s fans a feeling of belonging. Fans, like The Watcher, cannot intervene in the events, but they can protect the multiverse (the franchise) through their love and appreciation.
What is inside the Hydra Stomper?
Captain Carter returns to her reality in a mid-credits sequence and completes the mission she abandoned halfway. Following her confrontation with Batroc, Black Widow tells Captain Carter that the pirates were looking for a piece of technology, which turns out to be the Hydra Stomper. She also claims that it contains a person. However, we cut to credits before learning who that person is. Steve Rogers, who flies the armor in the first episode, is the most apparent choice. Captain Carter must return to her reality, according to the Watcher.
As a result, he may be aware that she is about to reconnect with Steve. In consequence, he rejects Captain Carter’s plea to transporting her to a different timeline to be with Steve. As a result, we think Steve is inside the Hydra Stomper. However, considering that it has been about 70 years since Carter last saw Steve, it is astonishing that he has lasted this long, but it is not wholly impossible. After all, Bucky Barnes survived Hydra’s Winter Soldier program for many years. It’s likely that Steve Rogers met the same fate in this version, and the guy within the Hydra Stomper is a brainwashed Steve. It might very well be the premise for an interesting episode in season 2 of ‘What If…?’
