Marvel’s What If…? Producers Tease a Crossover Season Finale

You may have already guessed it, but now it’s official. The two remaining episodes of What If…? season 1 will feature a story that will link all of the previous episodes together. Through seven episodes The Watcher (Jeffrey Wright) has guided fans through the new Marvel multiverse. But now, he has to take more direct action against Ultron, the artificial intelligence created by Bruce Banner and Tony Stark.

“As we battle toward the finale, we will see some of our heroes again,” said head writer A.C. Bradley while speaking with EW. “And the Watcher learns a few important lessons about what it means to be a hero and comes to a realization about how much these stories, how much these worlds mean to him.”

Until now, the Watcher refused to interfere in the events as they played out. However, an Infinity Stone-empowered Ultron changes the equation. And he simply can’t turn a blind eye to the threat that Ultron represents.

“It was designed to be a certain way, and some people have been vibing and savvy enough to notice that we’re slowly seeing more and more of the Watcher’s visual appearance as we move forward,” added director Bryan Andrews. “And that was all orchestrated from the very beginning. It’s all now coming to an arrow’s tip point.”

The eighth episode of What If…? will debut on Disney+ on Wednesday, Sept. 29.
