    The Multiverse is vast and the possibilities are endless. From the silliest to the cruelest universes, this show has stories for all of us.
  • Sep 19, 2022
    Best of Movies/TV Series Collection
  • Sep 15, 2022
    Some good episodes, some weren't good. Hope season 2 has better stories
  • Sep 10, 2022
    Captains Carter and Panther of The Galaxy are reaaly booring, but the rest save the show. Infinity Ultron must appears on MCU again
  • Sep 02, 2022
    only few episode are really interesting

    What If...? plays with the anthology format by giving you a very slow bigger arc between what seems to appear as unrelated stories. There is always a risk with anthologies as having a bad episode may be more impactful than in a serial series... but even with some lesser episodes, there is no miss here! Also despite a fun concept, divert famous moment from the MCU, the series has a darker tone than expected. It's a TV shows mainly targeted to the MCU fans (I would even say that it's the only one really targeted to them), as you need to understand the reference from past movies to understand what's going on and get all the cleverness behind what can be seem as random elements. The finale where all stories come together is astonishing. I personally think that Marvel redeems itself from Age of Ultron with that. Outside the finale, my favorite episode was "What If… T'Challa Became a Star-Lord?" and my least favorite "What If... Killmonger Rescued Tony Stark?"

    Being an animated series, many underestimate it but I think it is one of the best MCU series, with a great animation style. Maybe I'm exaggerating when I say this but "What If ...?" it's something I've wanted to see for years. In fact, the series shows how the stories of various characters can be different if some events in the history of the MCU had gone differently. The series is anthological, in fact in each episode we see separate events but despite this there is a macroplot with an incredible villain. The events of the Multiverse are narrated by the Observer, a character that I liked a lot. However, not all episodes were good, for example that of Killmonger or that of Party Thor. The ending is extraordinary, action-packed and with the resolution of all that is fine. A big mistake in my opinion was not showing the Gamora episode since she is in the finale but I make it fit me anyway.
  • Aug 19, 2022
    One of the best "new" show from Disney. Most of the episodes were interesting, the finale was great, and we learn about the multiverse more than in other movies/shows.
  • Aug 17, 2022
    Good animation and fun new interesting stories, one of the more refreshing MCU shows!
  • Aug 16, 2022
    They should have continued this and called it Doctor Strange 2.
