Season 2 of What If...? continues the adventure as The Watcher, who takes viewers around the wide cosmos, presenting both new and old characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With an outstanding voice cast that includes a slew of performers reprising their legendary roles, the series explores, revisits, and distorts great Marvel Cinematic events.

Last month, the episode titles for the second season were leaked online. Below are the names of all the episodes for ‘What If...?’ Season 2 that have been leaked:

As per the leak, the second season will also expand the story of Ten Rings regarding which we haven't heard anything since the release of Shang-Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings. The fourth episode title is intriguing as apart from confirming the return of Ten Rings, it also confirms the return of Hela, Thor's sister who was previously seen as the main villain of Thor: Ragnarok.
The leak also suggests that the second season will bring back Captain Carter in action, she was one of the leading characters in Season 1 as well. Apart from that, the second episode title suggests that Peter Quill will be a villain in an alternate universe, which could be exciting as he will attack the Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Does it mean Peter Quill will be a Thanos-level threat? The ninth episode "What If... The Avengers Assembled in 1602?" is the only episode that seems very unique from the others, and we will see how it goes.
Directed by Bryan Andrews with AC Bradley as head writer, “What If…?” flips the script on the MCU, reimagining famous events from the films in unanticipated ways. Marvel Studios’ first animated series focuses on different heroes from the MCU, featuring a voice cast that includes a host of stars who reprise their roles.
