Marvel has managed to keep the attention of his followers with the exclusive series of Disney +. The most positive thing about these stories is that they are not filler, they really work to move the universe forward in this new phase and give us the opportunity to delve into the psychology of some characters who needed it. The arrival of What If …? – 84% occurred after the UCM confirmed the multiverses and has been a hit with the public thanks to the appearance of T´Challa as Star Lord (Chadwick Boseman) or Captain Carter (Hayley Atwell). Of all the episodes released, the one that seems to be the favorite so far is the one that stars Doctor Strange, played again by Benedict Cumberbatch.

Although the episodes are individual and so far not connected, it seems like it will eventually happen, especially since most end with open endings and we know that the actors were hired for more appearances. In the case of Doctor Strange this is a bit more complicated. At the end of his chapter, the sorcerer caused the destruction of his universe by not being able to let go of Christine Palmer, whose death in this world was directly associated with Strange’s transition into the hero we know.
The ending so dark and depressing to “What If … Doctor Strange Lost His Heart Instead of His Hands?” He convinced the critics and the public, who began to develop theories about whether we will see this dark version of the character in the cinema or the destruction of some universe. In fact, some already speculate that the Strange we see in the Spider-Man: No Road Home trailer is an evil version and that a confrontation between both versions can be seen in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
While all these crazy theories are proven or not, What If…? continues its course and still has several episodes to premiere. To the liking of many, it seems that the dark version of Doctor Strange will have a new appearance, and he will not be the only character to return. A new trailer to promote the rest of the season gives us a summary of what we have already seen and prepares us for what is to come.

The trailer reminds us of the appearance of Captain Carter, the zombies, Thanos, Hulk and Thor’s perfect hair, among many others. But it also allows us to take a look at events that we have not seen in the animation, such as Tony Stark saving the day with the Infinity Gauntlet, a team made up of Captain Carter, Gamora and Black Widow, Killmonger leading an army, to Korg dancing, and the return of Captain Marvel. Similarly, we see Thor fighting Ultron, and also standing next to what appears to be the dark version of Doctor Strange as he says, “Zombies, what a great idea!”
This seems to confirm that the stories will be spun to end in a big way, although we do not know if the heroes will face an enemy that we have already seen or an entirely new one; although for now everything points to Thanos Zombie who was presented at the end of the last episode. The return of Doctor Strange creates many doubts, mainly about how he escaped from the nowhere in which his universe ended. The character was not really evil, rather foolish, so joining the Avengers in some way is like fulfilling his destiny.
Check out the trailer here:
What If…? premiered in late August and will end its first season on October 6 after 9 episodes. Although you deliver as WandaVision – 95% were thought as unique series, others will seek to renew themselves, such as Loki – 96% who already have a confirmed second season. With the great reception that animation is having and thanks to the fact that there are countless versions here, it is almost certain that we will have more episodes in the future. In fact, writer AC Bradley and his team initially submitted around 30 stories, of which 25 were accepted and 9 went into development, leaving good chances for more seasons.
