14 March 2019

Marvel is reportedly working on a new animated series for the upcoming Disney+ streaming service based on the What If series of comics that explored the weird alternate versions of the Marvel universe, according to SlashFilm. While most of the "What if?" scenarios explored by the series have yet to be revealed, Slash Film relays word that one episode will be an adaptation of Vol.1 #47 of the comics, which answers the question, "What if Loki had found the hammer of Thor?".

The animated series will follow the What If comic series, which explores what might have happened if key moments in the Marvel Universe unfolded differently than what happened in canon. What's interesting, Marvel Studios is working on an animated anthology series based on the comics.

What if the Fantastic Four hadn't gotten their powers? What if J. Jonah Jameson adopted Spider-Man? Some of situations altered for the series were What If?: Civil War, What If?: Secret Wars, What If?: Secret Invasion, What If?: Dark Avengers, What If?: Avengers Vs X-Men, What If?: Age Of Ultron and What If?: Infinity.
