What If…? is an American animated anthology series created by A.C. Bradley for the streaming service Disney+, based on the Marvel Comics series of the same name. What if Episode 8 watch online and it is the fourth television series in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) produced by Marvel Studios, and the studio’s first animated series. The series explores alternate timelines in the multiverse that show what would happen if major moments from the MCU films occurred differently. Bradley serves as head writer with Bryan Andrews directing.
Jeffrey Wright stars as the Watcher, who narrates the series, alongside many MCU film actors reprising their roles. By September 2018, Marvel Studios was developing a number of series for Disney+, with Bradley and Andrews joining by the end of 2018. The series was officially announced in April 2019. Marvel Studios’ head of visual development Ryan Meinerding helped define the series’ cel-shaded animation style, which was designed to reflect the films and take inspiration from classic American illustrators. Animation for the first season is provided by Blue Spirit, Squeeze, Flying Bark Productions, and Stellar Creative Lab, with Stephan Franck as head of animation.
After Party Thor’s lighthearted adventure last week, episode 8 of the reality-hopping Marvel Cinematic Universe animated series What If…? arrived on Disney Plus Wednesday. This chapter is the first to follow on from the events of the previous episode, which ended with an Infinity Stone-empowered Ultron and his drones marching through a portal into Party Thor’s world.

The final scene of What If…? Episode 8 sees The Watcher returning, in disgrace, to the destroyed universe last seen in the show’s fourth episode, “What If… Doctor Strange Lost His Heart Instead of His Hands?” Once there, he comes face-to-face again with Doctor Strange Supreme (Benedict Cumberbatch), the only other character outside of Ultron who has been powerful enough to become aware of The Watcher’s presence up to this point in What If…?
Only, this time, The Watcher isn’t refusing to help Doctor Strange Supreme but asking him for it.
“I need your help,” he says, asking the Doctor Strange variant for aid in his fight against Ultron. Fortunately, it’s an invitation that Strange seems to accept just before What If…? Episode 8 cuts to black for the last time.

On its own, it’s an epic and fun scene — one that functions as both a callback to What If…? Episode 4 and helps to set up What If…?’s presumably action-packed season finale next week. Notably, it also confirms what many Marvel fans had already long-suspected about the animated series: It will end with The Watcher assembling a team out of all the various, multiversal heroes featured this season to make one final stand against Ultron.
Doctor Strange Supreme is one of those “heroes,” but he’s far from the only familiar What If…? character that fans can expect to see in the show’s season finale.
