Marvel Planning New Animated Shows After What If…?


It’s been revealed that Marvel is planning on making new animated TV shows for Disney Plus after What If…? which is very good news.

The first episode of What If…? landed pretty recently and it was a pretty darn good episode if you ask me.

My review of the episode is coming up shortly, but to cut a rather long review short, I preferred the first episode of What If…? to the movie, Captain America: The First Avenger.

Anyway, it’s been revealed by Variety that Marvel Studios is planning on making more animated shows for Disney Plus in the future.

I honestly think this is really exciting news because these Marvel TV shows can really go anywhere.

What If…? has already shown that fact, and I think more animated Marvel shows can only be a good thing.

Here’s what Variety wrote in their article:

Marvel Studios already has “multiple” animated series “in various phases of development” for Disney Plus, on top of a second season for “What If…?” and a series of “photo-real” animated shorts centered on Baby Groot that are both already in production. (There are no current plans for animated features.)

We already knew that a Baby Groot show was in development, but there is more to unpack here.

OK, so first off, there’s going to be a What If…? Season 2, which I think had already been confirmed.

But having “multiple” animated series in development makes me wonder what they’re going to do next.

What do you make of this news?

Did you like the first episode of What If…? and are you looking forward to these upcoming animated Marvel TV shows?
