If Loki and Black Widow haven't satisfied your need for superheroics this week, Marvel's What If…? got a trailer on Thursday. It'll be the first Marvel Cinematic Universe animated series, and the 10-episode season kicks off on Disney Plus on Wednesday, Aug. 11.

Taken from the long-running Marvel Comics series of the same name, What If…? explores how events could have played out differently in the MCU. The trailer highlights possibilities like Peggy Carter taking the Super-Soldier Formula instead of Steve Rogers, and T'Challa becoming Star-Lord instead of Peter Quill.

The show will include the final Marvel performance of the late Chadwick Boseman, who played T'Challa in 2018's Black Panther and several other movies.

It's also getting a 10-episode second season, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige confirmed back in 2019.
