Marvel Studios first foray into animation has officially been announced alongside a logo. They confirmed that many actors from MCU’s history will return to reprise their roles with one official new casting announcement. None other than Jeffrey Wright will give The Watcher his voice and be the host for the show of alternate realities featuring our favorites heroes.

It is unclear if he will also be voicing the character in the official canon and make an appearance in the live-action side of this universe. They do not confirm if this version of the Watcher is Uatu but as the most prominent character among the Watchers, it is most likely. With the announcement of a multiverse-focused Doctor Strange sequel, almost anything is possible at this point. We may see some repercussions from the events that happen in What If…? that will affect the rest of the MCU.

What are your thoughts on the casting?
