Get ready for the new daily show

Marvel’s What If..? series proceeding as plan thanks to remote working…

April 16th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Some good news for you all tonight as it seems that the upcoming Marvel animated series on Disney+, What If…?, is still in production, despite the halting of other Marvel shows because of that damned virus.

In a new interview, the Head of Animation, Stephan Franck, said that the show can be worked on remotely from home, meaning it is still set for its 2021 release on the streaming service.

“I normally split my day between my home studio and the Disney lot for dailies and reviews, but now we’re just doing it all remotely,” he said.

“From what I hear across town, animation has been able to keep the shows in production with everyone safely working from home. Kudos to the studios for pivoting so fast to remote work.”

But, despite everyone being separated, he knows he can’t speak about the show or what to expect from it?

“I really can’t tell you much about the show, or SHIELD agents are going to come and take me away. What I can tell you is that the level of talent and passion on the team is off the charts and that I am having a blast.”

The series will see familiar characters and events from the MCU happen in a different way from what we know, hence the What If…? title.

We have a round-up of what all we know so far (here). We also know that the face of Marvel, Robert Downey Jnr, will be lending his voice to the animated Tony Stark/Iron Man (here).

This is one of my most anticipated shows on the Disney+ service, so this is good news and it’s great to know that work can continue and the creators can remain safe. Win/win, really.

Are you excited for this one? Let me know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
