(L-R): Hawkeye/Clint Barton, Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff, Captain America/Steve Rogers, Iron Man/Tony Stark and Black Panther/T’Challa in Marvel Studios’ WHAT IF…? exclusively on Disney+. ©Marvel Studios 2021. All Rights Reserved.

No doubt that we have all been enjoying Marvel Studios’ What If…? on Disney+. As we have been able to see our favorite characters from the MCU in different situations than what we have seen them in their respective films. I think my favorite character who has now been involved in two episodes is Hank Pym. Apparently in alternate MCU universes, he has been up to no good. I am excited to see what they have for the upcoming episodes.

Hopefully, you have been checking in with us here at LRM Online then you have probably been enjoying a number of interviewers with the heroes behind the scenes that have made the What If…? series possible. These have included talking with Laura Karpman the composer. Graham Fisher and Joel Fisher, editors for the series. Paul Lasaine, production designer, and Ryan Meinerding, head of visual development and character design.

What If…?


To finish up this series of behind-the-scenes look at What If…? LRM Online’s Emmanuel Gomez spoke with Stephan Franck. He serves as an animation supervisor for the animated series. In our conversation, we talk about the chosen animation style for the series. He shares with us some of the challenges and details in his work that otherwise may go unnoticed. It’s another informative conversation that gives us a special look at how What If…? came to life.

“What If…?” flips the script on the MCU, reimagining famous events from the films in unexpected ways. Marvel Studios’ first animated series focuses on different heroes from the MCU, featuring a voice cast that includes a  host of stars who reprise their roles. Directed by Bryan Andrews with AC Bradley as head writer, “What If…?”  is now playing exclusively on Disney+. With new episodes every Wednesday!
