The new Marvel zombies ‘What If …?’ episode has everyone freaking out

Yahoo Entertainment 08 September, 2021 - 09:00pm

It’s here that we’ll go ahead and insert the standard “Stop right here, right now, if you don’t want to be spoiled by anything” warning, for those of you who haven’t watched this new episode yet. But bottom line, according to reviews like this one from Den of Geek: “Episode 5 of Marvel’s What If…?, entitled What If … Zombies!?, is a tremendously fun half-hour of television, and is also likely to be a really good time for fans of the Marvel Zombies comics.”

You can check out a clip from this new episode below. In brief: Bruce Banner comes back to Earth as the Hulk, just like at the beginning of Avengers: Infinity War. This time, however, in keeping with the “what if?” aspect of the show, he lands in the Sanctum Sanctorum. There, characters including Doctor Strange and Iron Man have been turned into zombies. Hope van Dyne saves Bruce, and Peter Parker spirits him away.

What if you haven’t seen this Marvel zombies episode yet? Let me just note that, for me, one of the standout parts of this new episode is the heartbreak associated with Wanda and Vision’s relationship. Which Disney+’s WandaVision already gave us plenty of recently. Here, though, Vision goes to great lengths in response to Wanda getting turned into a zombie. In a way that calls to mind the emotional devastation of Wanda using Chaos Magic to keep Vision sort of in her life, almost as normal, even after his death.

Overall, this show still enjoys pretty stellar reviews from both critics as well as fans. At Rotten Tomatoes, for example, What If …? has garnered an equally strong rating of 93% from both critics as well as fans.

According to the site’s critic’s consensus, the show “may not add much to the larger MCU narrative, but surprising takes on beloved characters and some of the best action sequences in the entire franchise make for engaging viewing.” How’s that for a vote of confidence? It definitely helps to have seen existing Marvel content, including the aforementioned WandaVision. But even if you haven’t, this is still a thoroughly entertaining and compulsively bingeable series.

So as a huge fan of the original Marvel Zombies comics, I really liked this newest episode of What If…?

It has the same kinda doom and gloom of the original, but with a few more survivors and hope

When Marvel announced the What If…? anthology a few years ago, I immediately added it to the bottom of the MCU Phase 4 pile. It had an interesting premise, yes.

Michael Myers has been stabbed, shot, hacked and chainsawed in “Halloween” (1978), “Halloween II” (1981), and “Halloween” (2018).

It seems he is invincible, which is the central conceit of “Halloween Kills,” fleshing out the never-ending battle between Michael and Laurie, who at this point could file for a restraining order. “Halloween Kills” is the twelfth installment in the franchise, and it’s a shockingly realistic o
