Marvel Zombies is set to bring MCU fans back into the world of the undead. However, it seems familiar faces from the first season of What If…? will also be making their return.
Following the success of What If…? season 1’s episode featuring a horde of undead heroes, Marvel Zombies was greenlit to keep the concept alive outside of the original series. The announcement came with confirmation that a whole new cast of MCU heroes would be starring in the series. However, according to scooper CanWeGetSomeToast, the characters of Zombie Thanos, Spider-Man, and Scott Lang will return from the original episode.
It’s unclear what role these What If…? characters will play in Marvel Zombies given none of them are members of the main cast. It’s possible they’ll simply be cameos connecting the two MCU shows, especially as the main villain of the series is also set to crossover from the original episode.
What If…? features the voices of Josh Brolin, Natalie Portman, Samuel L. Jackson, Jeremy Renner, Paul Rudd, Mark Ruffalo, Jeffrey Wright, Hayley Atwell and other major stars from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The series “flips the script on the MCU, reimagining famous events from the films in unexpected ways,” according to Marvel’s official description of the series.
In addition to the second season of What If…?, Marvel is also working on two more animated series — Marvel Zombies and Spider-Man: Freshman Year. The former is a direct spin-off of What If…? episode five, which revolves around a Marvel Cinematic Universe that suffers from a zombie plague.
All episodes of What If…? season 2 are now available to stream on Disney Plus. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
