Marvel has fully immersed itself in the animation field and is now reaping the benefits. What was before seen as a medium to make projects for kids is now an attractive yet untapped territory where many studios are trying to make their mark. From Invincible on Prime Video and Batman: Caped Crusader to Marvel’s X-Men ‘97 and What If…? animated series is the talk of the town.

The Marvel Animation banner is widening with more seasons of the two successful projects along with a new Spider-Man animated series in the works. Fans are excited to see the studio take some risks and produce projects that are actually entertaining.

After wrapping up a glorious season of X-Men ‘97, Marvel executives are preparing to release the next season of What If..? According to, Executive Producer and Marvel Studios Head of TV, Streaming, and Animation, Brad Winderbaum claimed,

What If…? Season Three is — that might be the one that comes out next, in terms of animation. That is the culmination of a trilogy. We’re actually close to completing that one, and it really feels like you’ve gone through this amazing emotional experience with Uatu, in a way that’s… What’s great about The Watcher is that he presents himself as uncaring, and cold, and just an observer, but he cares more than everybody [and] anybody. That is on full display in that third season.

The Watcher has been portrayed as an unbiased observer, a new type of character in Marvel projects. Fans don’t know much about his identity or purpose in the show other than narrating the events and guiding the viewers to specific conclusions.

However, as teased by Winderbaum, the third season of What If…? could completely alter our view of the Watcher as he might get involved in the story and trigger a branch in reality. This can further connect to the upcoming culmination of the Marvel phases and bring all the heroes together.
