The Marvel Cinematic Universe never fails in surprising its fans with the unparalleled content and concept development that it shows in its movie and series. What If..? is the first animated series that the MCU has come up with, which explores the different possibilities that might have changed the course of the universe had the Avengers made a different choice.
It explores the unceasingly vast multiverse. The show opens with The Watcher, who guides us through the numerous realities, making the audiences believe that ‘time is more than just a linear path. He is entrusted with the task of watching all that is going on, but with every episode, it becomes practically possible that the watcher would be coerced to intervene in order to stop all that’s going exceedingly wrong.
In the previous episode, Ultron got hold of the infinity stones and got to know about the multiverse. The Watcher realizes that these turn of events put the entire multiverse under threat. He finally decides to intervene to save all that’s left of existence, turning his back on the vow of not intervening with the natural course of events.
All About its Release
What if..? episode 9 is all set to be premiered on October 6, 2021, at 3 am EST on Disney+. It’ll be marking the end of the season, which is comprised of nine episodes with a runtime of 30 minutes each. The series is a Disney+ Original and the viewers will be needing a paid subscription to watch the episodes.
Expected Plot of Episode 9
The final episode is going to be an extremely interesting one as it is going to put off Ultron against the all-knowing Watcher as the latter attempts to defeat him for the sake of saving the multiverse. The Watcher could be seen teaming up with Doctor Stranger in the previous episode, making it vivid that the duo would be putting up a fight against Ultron and his destructive forces.
However, Sorcerer Supreme won’t be able to take the genocidal robot down all by himself, and Watcher will have to play the recruiting agent, calling upon superheroes from different realities to save every world that exists. All-ruined Thor and Black Widow are two of the most likely candidates to be on the team. Ultron could be seen appearing in front of Thor, suggesting that there’s some action set in line for the two in the next episode. Natasha’s involvement is inevitable, given that she has the key to taking down Ultron.
Other superheroes like Captain Carter, Captain Marvel, Star-Lord T’Challa, and the all-new Gamora can be expected to be on this team. With the all-new Guardians of the multiverse fighting off Ultron, the episode is going to be a Bang! Although, it is for the audiences to explore whether The Watcher will face the consequences for breaking his oath.
‘What if…?’ as an animated show has been a great series put forward by the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The audiences are excited for the premiere of the next and final episode of the series.
