What If... The New Poster is Full of... Marvel Zombies

A new poster of What If …?, the Marvel animated series coming August 11 on Disney +, was released today by the official Marvel Studios Twitter account, and it’s all dedicated to the episode where zombies will be the stars.

“I think I might have mentioned it early on as a ‘What if we did this’ kind of pie in the sky throwaway not thinking at first that there actually has been the very famous run,”

explained showrunner  in an interview, recalling what happened when they decided to include zombies in the series

“Brad [Winderbaum, executive producer] was excited, and then Kevin [Feige] kind of surprised us by being like, ‘Yeah, no. You’re doing Marvel Zombies”

Marvel Zombies is a five-issue comic book miniseries published between 2005 and 2006 set in an alternate universe where the population had been infected by a virus that had made them zombies.

Written by Robert Kirkman (author of The Walking Dead, a veritable authority on zombies) and illustrated by Sean Phillips, the series was born out of a crossover with Ultimate Fantastic Four.

“The fun part of Marvel Zombies, at least for me, was to delve into that initial run,” Bradley continued, “Probably more than any other what episode. We drew directly from the comic for inspiration and for actual specific scenes, because it is so good and less from the movies.”

So we’ll see what happens in this episode of What If…?, although one of the featured main characters should be zombie-hunting Spider-Man, at least according to the new What If…? figure from Hot Toys.
