The animated series – which rips apart reality to explore possible alternate scenarios in the Marvel multiverse, mainly involving: what if this character was actually that character? – debuts on Disney+ on August 11, 10 days after the launch of at least two tie-in LEGO sets, 76201 Captain Carter & The Hydra Stomper and 76194 Tony Stark’s Sakaarian Iron Man.
Alongside a great glimpse at Peggy Carter stepping into the shoes of Captain America (taking on the mantle of Captain Carter), this trailer also gives us a first look at the Hulkbuster-style mech piloted by Steve Rogers in 76201 Captain Carter & The Hydra Stomper.
This trailer also gives us a first glimpse of some of the characters reported to appear in this year’s alleged Marvel Collectible Minifigures series. The latest rumoured line-up includes a more detailed version of Captain Carter, a zombified Captain America, T’Challa as Star Lord, Spider Supreme, and Warlord Gamora (featuring Thanos’s armour).
All of those characters can be seen in some form in the trailer, giving us a much better idea of what to expect from their minifigures – should those initial rumours pan out. Nothing is confirmed for now, but with What If…? a little over a month away, we’ll likely find out for sure pretty soon.
