Talking to Buzzfeed, Jeff Golblum revealed that he was not only returning as Grandmaster for Disney+ and Marvel Studios’ animated What If… series, but that he will be starring alongside Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark and Taika Waititi as Korg as well.
The actor said:
“This episode included the Grandmaster and Iron Man. So Robert Downey [Jr.] will do a voice in that. And Korg, Taika Waititi, had already recorded his voice for that.”
How these three characters will end up together should make for an interesting episode of What If… Marvel’s series that explores alternate versions of the MCU including what if Peggy Carter had the super soldier serum instead of Steve Rogers.
Even more interesting than how the two may come together will likely be how the sarcastic and bombastic Tony Stark will interact with the eccentric Grandmaster, seen in Thor: Ragnarok.
Though Avengers: Endgame was a huge ending for the Iron Man story, this sounds like the most appropriate way to briefly bring back Robert Downey Jr. without undoing the dramatic ending of the highest grossing film of all time. It will certainly be a huge draw for the new streaming service.
