Marvel's animated What If...? episodes surprised me by not all being apocalypse scenarios, which was the stock and trade of the comics series, even leading me to believe there would be follow-ups, possibly even in live action given the multiversal bent of the MCU's next phase. Well, there were, but not in the way I expected. We didn't know it, but we were watching one long story, a little bit like the MCU through to Endgame in microcosm. Great finish, though liking any give episode will depend on the individual viewer. Some I found exciting and/or fun, some relatively dull, but my experiences at times differed from friends'. I even ended up liking the Marvel Zombies one, for its dark humor. A nice surprise was how many of the original voices participated - it means this is Chadwick Boseman's last hurrah as T'Challa and it's a good one - and the missing cast is generally well emulated. It does show when an actor doesn't really do voice work normally. The art style is excellent for action, a bit less for facial expressions, though that varies (as do the likenesses). What If? was one of my favorite series back in the day (volume 1 anyway) and I was happy to see it done for the MCU continuity. That they managed to surprise me with their twists is a small miracle.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
