Going into the last two episodes of season 1, Marvel’s What If…? will drift away from its standalone format and finally resolve an end tag.
What If…? head writer A.C. Bradley previews how the final two episodes of season 1 connect to each other. Season 2 is already on the way, but there’s still a sense of finality in the next couple of weeks in What If…?‘s run. The series has been airing new episodes on Disney+ since early August, and each week has brought fresh surprises to the Marvel multiverse. So far, every episode of What If…? has been a standalone exploring different alternate realities within the MCU. However, going into the last two installments of the season, that looks to change.
What If…? episode 7 concluded with the surprising arrival of Ultron Vision, who looks to be the overarching big bad of the first season. This Ultron seemingly managed to integrate himself with the Vision body he created in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and he even has all the Infinity Stones. Though not explicitly confirmed, all signs point to What If…? assembling the Guardians of the Multiverse to stop Ultron Vision who, with the Infinity Stones, could be a bigger threat than Thanos.
