When all the original Disney Plus Marvel content was announced, What If…? was what I was looking forward to most. I used to collect that comic book when I was young. Reading one-off stories about if Uncle Ben had lived. Jane Foster finding the hammer of Thor. Sue Storm had married Prince Namor. Gwen Stacy lived. Some really great titles. One of my favorites was Spider-Man joined the Fantastic Four. Marvel’s What If…? series got an official trailer today.

Since Marvel is known for head fakes, we will have to see what happens in Marvel’s What If…? I distinctively remember reading that Evans had recorded his dialogue a long time ago. But that remains to be seen. Nevertheless, the limited-run series debuts on Wednesday, August 11. I will be waiting until midnight to catch that first episode. You best believe.
