Marvel’s What If? Episode 5 Recap: “What If… Zombies?” + ‘Shang-Chi’ Spoiler Review | Everything is Super

Listen to the Podcast

The world outside your window isn’t great, but WHAT IF everything was super?

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Kevin Mahadeo (@kevmahadeo) are talking about Marvel’s What If…?, the very first animated Marvel Cinematic Universe series, coming out weekly on Wednesdays on Disney+. Set through the lens of Uatu the Watcher, Marvel’s What If…? looks at various elements of the MCU, and posits different ways in which they could play out, leading to new permutations of characters such as Captain Carter and T’Challa as Star-Lord.

This week, Josh and Kevin talk through the latest round of “What If,” and the introductions of zombies into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Then, around 40 minutes into the podcast, they switch gears to discuss Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, in full spoiler-filled detail.

Next week, Josh will return to join Kevin and discuss Episode 6 of Marvel’s “What If,” as well as a spoiler-filled review of the “Y: The Last Man” series premiere on FX on Hulu. Get your feedback into [email protected].
