I think you can probably get a lot of mileage out of a post-apocalyptic zombie Marvel cartoon expanding on What If...I just hope this has less jokes :sweat:.

I'm guessing this could end up being closer to the comics, since it's a series there would probably be more time to develop the world and maybe some of the zombies (unless it's actually supposed to be a continuation of the What If...? scenario we had earlier this year...)

I don't really think it can be considering weren't all the What If Zombies buried on Infinite Ultron in the finale of What If? So I would like to think this would clearly be a totally different universe.

Though yeah one I hope is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy less joke filled. Seriously if you're going to do a full on Marvel Zombies series you HAVE to be able to commit to the grimness and horror of the situation. And if there are jokes it's done in a much more dark and grilm way. I don't know if this will follow too much the original set up of Marvel zombies if it's about a new generation of heroes but yeah hopefully the zombies will be more like their Marvel Zombies comic selves then just mindless monsters. Like hopefully this series won't need to worry about needing to adhere to the MCU and can just cast alternates for the voices more to make it much more it's own thing while again still remaining true to the spirit of the comics. You would hope since Marvel Zombies is generally seen as one of the weakest episodes of What If (certainly mine) the team behind this would realize what didn't work there and make sure it's not in this version.

I wonder if it will be based in the continuity of the episode from what if season 1. The one reason I wouldn't want to see them do that is the fact that a lot of the more interesting MCU characters that we could see zombified have already been eliminated.

My first assumption was it would be a spinoff based around the What If episode, but maybe they'll try to rework it a little.

Because also, if they go in that direction, the assumption would be they'll still try to keep as many MCU actors as they can.

What does a "new generation of heroes" even mean? Is that like on DCW's Earth-X where they have the most obscure superheroes trying to fight back?

Maybe we'll see the MCU Young Avengers that everybody has thought they've been building up to so far.
Throw a different curveball and have the Next Avengers lead the way, so the Young Avengers would either already be zombified or be as old as the original Avengers mentoring their kids. I get that the movie was about an actual Age of Ultron, but What If? already crossed that bridge.

Between D+ streaming the TV-MA Defenders shows and films like Deadpool and Logan, this was definitely inevitable. People who are still nervous about Deadpool 3 shouldn't be.

I wasn't a huge fan of the Zombies episode but I did like the ragtag team of heroes that had to survive. This show seems to throw in even more characters into the mix so that could be fun. I don't see this lasting for several seasons like The Walking Dead (which I never watched, by the way).

I only watched the first three and a half seasons of TWD before I quit, knowing that the show would just get too heartbreaking for me. Funny enough, Robert Kirkman made the real zombies and the Marvel Zombies.

My own personal history with the property is a little shaky. I read the very grim Frightful Four stuff from Ultimate Fantastic Four, read a couple of issues here and there of the main series, and then read the more comedic Army of Darkness crossover. I wonder which tone this will go with.

With all the negative PR, especially that lawsuit, lately, are the board of directors and shareholders of WBD upset with David Zaslav?

It's official. E3 plans to return next June.

Don't expect any cancellations to occur anytime soon. The event is officially back on.
To all "The Ghost and Molly McGee" fans, don't go to 4chan because someone leaked some stuff about season two premiere.

Also don't spread the said leaks around Twitter and other places for the respect of the creators and the crew.

Can someone tweet to him that Paradise Run is off the TeenNick lineup? The last airing so far was last night, and that was a last minute schedule change.
