Marvel Zombies Rise Again in a New What If…? Poster

Fans probably didn’t imagine, when Disney took over Marvel, that Marvel Zombies could be on the agenda for TV. But following the hallucinatory Tony Stark zombie in Spider-Man: Far From Home‘s Mysterio illusion, Disney Plus will take the full plunge. In an upcoming episode of What If…?, the undead superheroes will rise from the grave. There’s even an action figure coming of zombie Captain America. Today, Marvel revealed a new poster by artist Chris Christodoulou that features the unhelpful hands of the undead. Take a look below:

As in many zombie stories, the ultimate origin of the Marvel zombie virus is unknown, but can infect even the most resilient superheroes. Beings of pure energy like the Watchers remain unaffected. Based on early toy images, it seems that in this telling, Peter Parker will don the cape of Doctor Strange as a zombie hunter.

What If…? explores alternate tellings of Marvel Cinematic Universe stories each week. Among those we know about so far, the show explores Peggy Carter getting the super soldier serum instead of Steve Rogers, and T’Challa becoming Star-Lord instead of Peter Quill. Some early reviews compared the anthology series to Marvel’s The Twilight Zone.
