I wonder if they didn't announce this to give us a holiday surprise, or if they were seeing where the strikes shook out? Either way I am both looking forward to this and hoping they chill with the What if figures.

Meh. The first season was hit and miss at best. There were some good things. There were some bad things. But mostly it was just whatever. Not a total waste of lifespace but had I watched literally anything else it would have been pretty much the same. The best thing this show does is explore those little strange places of the multiverse which is becoming evermore prevalent so that we don't have to see it on the big screen. The worst thing it does is create a lot of weird niche junk for Legends and takes up space and resources that could be better utilized. Silver lining maybe we get a little more Zombie product to use with the Giant Man.

This is good news, I honestly had a good time watching the first season, it's just an entertaining adventure, I think it's good stuff, Even as a kid I loved reading What If books so naturally the show felt the same, just some stories that don't really have much consequence in the end.

I wonder if they're gonna branch out to the comics instead of just the MCU for their WHAT IF...? fodder.  Its a deeper bench to pull from.

Bet not, I get the vibe that most of whatever Marvel Studios is doing as of late...I mean ever, doesn't wanna hang around the comic isles, they like the sandbox they are playing in.

would be nice though, would actually be ideal if the folks at marvel studios would read some of those what if comics and just translate them to the screen, but alas I'm sure Johnny make-a-thing, well he never read no camic boks.

I doubt it. They probably don't want to confuse the viewers with some alternate comic story they probably never read.

As an animator, my eyes are poison..........so the animation in this continues to be dismaying for me.  They can do the CGI  body animation, and the effects just fine, but they cannot seem to animate lip-synch for dialogue worth beans.  The layperson won't notice it, but my eyes go right to it and it kills it for me.  😞

Episode one of season two of Marvel Studios’ “What If…?” is now streaming on Disney+. In the spirit of the holidays, a new episode will debut daily for the next eight days. Jeffrey Wright (“The French Dispatch,” “The Batman”) returns as The Watcher, joining a host of MCU stars reprising their roles. “They’ve all been great,” said director Bryan Andrews. “Cate Blanchett really sunk her teeth into this version of Hela we have. And, of course, Hayley Atwell as our Captain Carter—seeing that character go through what she goes through and keeps forging ahead—it’s amazing what Hayley brings to the table. And we had Jon Favreau come in and do a couple of versions of Happy Hogan and it was a blast. He’s amazing and really went for it. I asked for some wacky stuff in our 1602-inspired episode and he delivered in a big way—so much fun.”

Also featured are Clancy Brown, Josh Brolin, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kat Dennings, Michael Douglas, Idris Elba, Karen Gillan, Seth Green, Frank Grillo, Jeff Goldblum, Laurence Fishburne, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Rachel House, Samuel L. Jackson, Jude Law, Elizabeth Olsen, Jeremy Renner, Sam Rockwell, Paul Rudd, Mark Ruffalo, Michael Rooker, Kurt Russell, Peter Serafinowicz, John Slattery, Cobie Smulders, Sebastian Stan, Tessa Thompson, Stanley Tucci, Taika Waititi and Rachel Weisz.
