In the official Marvel description for the second What If…? season, Marvel writes:

Season 2 of Marvel Studios’ first animated series will arrive in 2023, reuniting viewers with The Watcher — and those in Ballroom 20 were treated to a sneak peek at the first new episode, with Peggy Carter and Natasha Romanoff going up against the Hydra Stomper — and Steve Rogers. Additional familiar but surprising characters for Season 2 include Yondu, Young Peter Parker, Ego, Shang-Chi, Valkyrie, Korg, Tony Stark, Wenwu, Odin, Red Guardian, and more.

And, considering there are always going to be new realities, and new questions to ponder, What If…? will also return for Season 3. “We keep pushing the envelope of what’s possible in the multiverse,” Andrews told the crowd.

Giving fans a recap of the 2022 San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel.com revealed that a young Peter Parker would be appearing in What If…? season two, seemingly replacing Hudson Thames’ Zombie hunting Spider-Man from the initial season.

Whether or not this “young” Parker could set up the groundwork for Spider-Man: Freshman Year is uncertain, but given Marvel Studios’ efforts to expand its animation department, it’s evident that Kevin Feige is working to interconnect all of these series, including Marvel’s Zombies and X-Men ’97.

The Marvel Universe is becoming much more than iconic characters/Earth’s Mightiest Heroes like Star-Lord/Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Hawkeye/Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner), Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson), Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), and Thanos (Josh Brolin).

Tom Holland’s Avenger is leading the way for Marvel Cinematic Universe newcomers Kate BishopMs. Marvel/Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani), Moon Knight (Oscar Isaac), Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn), She-Hulk (Tatiana Maslany), Eternals’ Thena (Angelina Jolie), and more — especially with his next Spider-Man trilogy that’s currently in the works.
