WATCH: Marvel drops first look at Hydra Stomper Steve Rogers in ‘What If…?’
Marvel has given fans the first look at Steve Rogers donning the Hydra Stomper suit in the upcoming animated series, “What If…?”
In the 40-second clip released yesterday, Aug. 4, fans were able to take a glimpse of Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter as Captain Britain fighting alongside Sebastian Stan’s Bucky Barnes.
The sneak peek, aptly titled “Steve,” is set in World War II and shows Carter and the others fighting Hydra. Then enters Steve Rogers, clad in the “Hydra Stomper” suit that looks very similar to Tony Stark’s Iron Man armor.
While no further details have been released, “What If…?” is set to show different realities in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Through the trailers Marvel has released, the first episode will follow Peggy as she receives the super-soldier serum instead of Steve.
Despite not being a super-soldier, however, Steve still successfully joined the army and came in as “air support” for the others, destroying tanks with ease using his suit of armor.
The said clip also highlights the courage and integrity of Steve, who continues to fight “bullies” despite not being turned into Captain America.
Steve as the Hydra Stomper is only one of the possible realities that “What If…?” will be exploring. As seen in earlier trailers, the series will for one explore the story of T’Challa as Star-Lord instead of Peter Quill. This will also mark the last performance of the late actor Chadwick Boseman for Marvel.
ChrisEvans will not be reprising his role as the American hero in the animated series and Marvel has yet to officially announce who took on the role. “What If…?” is set to premiere on Disney Plus on Aug. 11. /ra
