“What If Episode 5 is my least favorite so far. It’s just a simple zombie story with superheroes so it was a bit boring”
It’s time for our weekly dose of Marvel with What If…? This week’s episode is about Zombies!
I really don’t like Zombies but The Clone Wars did something great with them in season 2. So I was hoping Marvel could do the same. However, I was disappointed by this episode. It’s my least favorite so far.
It’s a classic Zombie story except that it features superheroes. Most of the Avengers have been turned into Zombies except a few like Spider-Man, Bruce Banner, Bucky, Hope. During the whole episode, they try to survive and get the cure to save Earth. There’s a lot of action and more people being turned into Zombies including some heroes. That means there are some moving scenes. But there’s also comedy with Spider-Man. I have to say I loved his video to survive the zombie apocalypse, it was really funny!
As usual, this series has striking visuals! I loved seeing more characters in the What If animation style. They are able to capture the essence of the characters. There’s also a lot of details in the scenery and beautiful colors! They have been able to make a zombie story without it being too gory. It’s something they couldn’t have done in live-action so I’m glad that story was told in animation.
Marvel has once again brought back a lot of actors from the movies which is awesome! Chadwick Boseman was part of the cast. Just like for episode 2, it was emotional hearing his voice again. As usual, not everyone came back. Tom Holland didn’t reprise his role as Spider-Man. Though, they found someone who was able to have a voice similar to Holland’s Peter Parker. So it didn’t feel too weird.
This episode is my least favorite so far. It’s just a simple zombie story with superheroes so it was a bit boring. Though, this series continues to impress visually.
