Earlier today, Marvel Studios unveiled the trailer and release date for the upcoming animated series What If…? on Disney+. One of the big draws of the show is that MCU stars will provide the voices for the animated versions of their characters – with a major twist. The show explores the multiverse, so your favorite characters are going to take on new roles – like T-Challa as Star-Lord and Peggy Carter as super solider Captain Carter. This, of course, will make for some very interesting Funko Pops.
The first wave of What If…? Funko Pops debuted today as part of Marvel’s Must Haves program. Like the Loki Episode 5 Funko Pops that debuted today, the What If wave has not been made available to pre-order. On the plus side, Marvel was kind enough to share Funko’s standard promo images, so we have the full picture of common releases and exclusives.
The common What If…? Funko Pop wave includes Captain Carter, T’Challa as Star-Lord, A super-sized Iron Steve Rogers, Gamora, and Doctor Strange. Variants of T’Challa Star-Lord, Captain Carter, and Doctor Strange are earmarked as exclusives as is Thor, King Killmonger. Again, like the Loki Pop wave, we expect these Pop figures to go live soon – probably in the next day or two. When they do arrive, expect them to be available to pre-order via the links below. This article will be updated with new information as it becomes available. Stay tuned.
Westworld star Jeffrey Wright serves as the narrator for What If…?, voicing the all-seeing Watcher. The rest of the cast is filled with current and former MCU stars voicing their live-action characters in this animated format. Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Josh Brolin, Hayley Atwell, Jeremy Renner, Paul Rudd, Natalie Portman, Michael Douglas, Michael B. Jordan, Sebastian Stan, Michael Rooker, Tom Hiddleston, and the late Chadwick Boseman will all be reprising their roles for the series, along with several other MCU stars.
Marvel’s What If…? is set to premiere on Disney+ August 11th.
