What If…?: Animated Series Depicts A Different MCU

Marvel Studios’ What If…? takes what we know as the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) but delivers the animated action with a twist.

We revisit key moments of the MCU through the eyes of Marvel newcomer Jeffrey Wright, who voices The Watcher, and see what would happen had characters done A instead of…

WandaVision: A Marvel Love Letter To Sitcom History

Thor introduces an entirely new realm of mythology to the Marvel Cinematic Universe by way of the wondrous beauty that is Asgard. The film’s prologue introduces us to the nine realms, Asgardians, and Frost Giants.  We already had somewhat of an introduction during Captain America with the search for the Tesseract.  It goes without saying that one expands upon the mythology.  The main artifact that drives the plot is the Casket of Ancient Winters.  It’s…
