Students watch new episodes of the Marvel hit show weekly on Disney+.

Marvel's “What If . . .?” series focuses on what would happen if the moments and events from previous MCU films occurred differently. It is based on the comic series of the same name that ran from 1977 to 1984.

The new hit TV series is already being enjoyed by millions. Its uniqueness and storyline captures the attention of many. It creates many fascinating thoughts and theories.

“Well the ‘What If . . .?’ series is really good with interpreting changes and their effects across the world if not the multiverse. I think we may see these changes in live action as new movies like ‘Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness,’” said freshman Vishnu Suresh.

“The series shows how one little event can change the whole storyline...”

Many people ask if Marvel’s “What If . . .?” series was created to develop an effect on the MCU or the multiverse. Although it is not currently shown in other MCU movies or shows released, Marvel’s new series was not designed to be an ongoing presence that would affect the multiverse. The show provides interactions and action-packed scenes that represent what could have happened if notable MCU scenes were altered.

“‘Marvel’s What If . . .?’ is an amazing, well crafted, and entertaining show. It’s great to see some of the old characters that we might never see again to come back and to also see some of our favorite scenes to be recreated . . . It’s crazy to think one day we may see our version of the MCU collide with other universes. I was glad to hear about season two coming next summer,” said freshman Jash Mody.

The series shows how one little event can change the whole storyline. It embraces the multiverse phase of the MCU by introducing new characters and roles in the multiverse.

“Overall, the show was really good and opened up so many possibilities and could give explanations for newer crossovers. For example, how Tobey Maguire’s Spider Man and Andrew Garfield’s Spider Man might be in the MCU,” said freshman Steven Sibrian.

Marvel’s “What If . . .?” is coming back for a second season, and will answer a lot of questions that fans are dying to know the answers to.
