Paul Rudd Steals the Show in Marvel's 'What If...?' Animated Series

Ever wondered how different your life would be if one little thing changed in your past? Perhaps instead of eating a cold bowl of cereal last week, you had warm toast. Would it change your life only a little… or would you find yourself now battling zombies alongside Marvel’s Spider-Man, The Hulk, Agent Carter, and Ant-Man?

The Academy was excited to witness Paul Rudd (Class of 1991) reprise his role as Ant-Man in Marvel’s new exciting animated show “What If...?” where they explore alternative storylines for the characters in the MCU, including one episode on how the Avengers would take on a zombie apocalypse.

The writer of the series, A.C. Bradley, enjoyed his time with Mr. Rudd on set, joking that he was only there for “like three hours,” but he still “almost won office employee of the month” even though “he doesn't even work there.”

You can watch the series on Disney+ to witness other wonderful actors reprise their superhero roles, such as Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Michael B. Jordan as Killmonger, Josh Brolin as Thanos, Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, and many more!
