It is an animated anthology series that will tell us alternate tales of everything that has happened in the MCU so far.

But today we will talk about Marvel’s What If cast, including those who are voicing and those who aren’t.

According to The Illuminerdi, the Stephen Strange in Marvel’s What If…? is a Doctor Strange who “found magic after the death of his true love which led him down a darker path with dark and dangerous magic in an attempt to change his past.”

Marvel Actors Not Returning For What If…?

By now, it is evident that Robert Downey Jr., Scarlet Johansson, Tom Holland, Chris Evans, and Brie Larson are not returning for Marvel’s What If…?. Even Winston Duke, Letitia Wright, and Lupita Nyong’o’s names aren’t mentioned on the list either. So I guess they aren’t returning as well. Previously it was reported that Benicio Del Toro (The Collector) and Benedict Cumberbatch won’t return for the series. But they have been included now. As for the rest not included, it could be a simple issue of contracts or schedules.
