On this episode of Star Reviews, Eleanor Weitz ’24 welcomes her guest Ben Mwamba ’22 to discuss Marvel’s new animated series “What If…?”.

Eleanor Weitz and Benjamin Mwamba

2021 has been a banner year for Marvel. They’ve dropped four shows on the streaming service Disney+ this year alone. Not including the new “Hawkeye” series expected in December. Out of all of these new shows, they’ve experimented the most with an animated series called “What If…?”. This show is an intro into what Marvel has been teasing all throughout phase four and likely a precursor to the new movies releasing in the coming years including “Spiderman: No Way Home” and “Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness”. The show delves straight into the Marvel Comic Universe (MCU) multiverse and everything that could have happened if the smallest of choices differed. This podcast is a take on each episode and the idea of the show as a whole.
