Marvel’s animated ‘What If…?‘ series for Disney+ is going to be a reunion of talent from the Marvel Cinematic Universe nearly on par with ‘Avengers: Endgame.’ The show is bringing back some of the biggest names from the MCU to ask “What If” significant events from the films happened differently. The concept is based on a long-running series from Marvel Comics that takes major events and slightly tweaks them to share what could have happened if only one change was made to the events as they had unfolded.

These comics were always narrated by one of The Watchers, and Marvel Studios has released that Jeffrey Wright will be voicing the character. Of his new role, the talented actor shared:

“The Watcher is a non-Earthly being who observes all things. He’s watching over the multiverse and occasionally may nor may not intervene with the doings of earthlings, other than that he’s off doing his own things…Today is the 50th Anniversary of the Moonlanding. The Watcher first appears in 63 I think, Fantastic 4, he turns up on the Moon because today’s the 50th anniversary, but the Watcher had a crib their ages ago. I’m excited to see where we take it, we could take it anywhere.”

While we don’t know exactly which stories the studio plans to revisit, we have learned that the following will be reprising their roles:

  • Michael B. Jordan as Killmonger
  • Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes
  • Josh Brolin as Thanos
  • Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/The Hulk
  • Tom Hiddleston as Loki
  • Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury
  • Chris Hemsworth as Thor
  • Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter
  • Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther
  • Karen Gillan as Nebula
  • Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye
  • Paul Rudd as Ant-Man
  • Michael Douglas as Hank Pym
  • Neal McDonough as Dum Dum Dugan
  • Dominic Cooper as Howard Stark
  • Sean Gunn as Kraglin
  • Natalie Portman as Jane Foster
  • Taika Waititi as Korg
  • Toby Jones as Arnim Zola
  • Djimon Hounsou as Korath
  • Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster
  • Michael Rooker as Yondu

We’re missing a few notable characters here such as Captain America, Iron Man, and Star-Lord to name a few but there is always a chance that some of these actors and others could still appear in the show.
