Both new additions to the show have a successful background in the animation world. Bradley spent the last three years as a writer/director on Trollhunters: Tales of Acadia ands also done some work on the wildly popular Arrow on CW. Andrews has made his name as the storyboard artist on Cartoon Network’s long-running series Samauri Jack, and he has an extensive history with Marvel’s art department for half of the MCU’s released movies, including all 4 Avengers titles. What If…? has been a huge hit all weekend, and fans are looking forward to all the new stories Marvel will explore from the Infinity Saga!
