So your pals at JOE are here to bring these to your attention, and introduce you to what could one day be your new favourite film or series!

ENCANTO

WHAT IF...?

What if Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) saved Tony Stark from that attack at the start of Iron Man? What if it was T'Challa who has kidnapped by the Ravangers at the start of Guardians of the Galaxy, and not Peter Quill? What if Captain America was a zombie??

Those are the big, weird, fun questions being asked by Marvel's new animated show, which will feature Chadwick Boseman's final performance, and will also see the return of Josh Brolin as Thanos, Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner, Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, and loads and LOADS more.

What If...? will kick off on Disney+ from Wednesday, 11 August.
