One of the biggest questions with the announced What If…? series from Marvel was how it would fit with the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe. While it is fun to explore these hypothetical situations, fans wondered if they would just be imaginary scenarios or if they would somehow weave in with the existing MCU. That question has now been answered.
In an interview with IGN, What If…? head writer AC Bradley confirmed that everything we will see in the show is considered canon: “The events of What If…? are canon. It’s part of the MCU multiverse. The multiverse is here. it is real, and it absolutely fantastic people.”
