Last week’s episode of What If…?, the animated series that reimagines the Marvel Cinematic Universe, surprised the followers of the brand with a special plot: the heroes are transformed into zombies that seek to devour human flesh at all costs. Sure, many celebrated this show entry as one of their best yet and that could mean more than you think for future projects.
Mark Millar, creative and graphic novel writer, slipped the possibility that Marvel is working on a live action version of the zombified heroes and villains. Through his newsletter, Millar expressed: “If my sources are correct, there will be a bit of live action Marvel Zombies later on, but you’ve never heard of this from me.”
Will there be a live action Marvel Zombies?
What If …? they spoke and it seems that the executives of the production company listened. We know that Kevin Feige He is very intelligent and his strategy is to please the wishes of the followers of the Cinematographic Universe being built since 2008 with the first entry of Iron Man. Now, the future could hold a big surprise: seeing the Captain America and the rest of the Avengers turned into zombies.
Where did this idea come from? The original arc of Marvel Zombies comes from the comics and was a five-issue limited series written by Robert Kirkman and illustrated by Sean Phillips that ran between December 2005 and April 2006. The events took place in an alternate Earth where heroes and villains were zombified by a virus . There were sequels and tie-ins of a creation that was successful and that is why it transcended its medium.
A question arises when we think of a live action of the Marvel Zombies: Will they use the original cast of the Cinematographic Universe? This could mean the return of some names that were no longer in the folder after the events of the Infinity Saga, for example Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans. The zombified versions with names of that size were sure to be a blockbuster!
