The final episode of What If…?, the animated series of Marvel Studios as part of the UCM for Disney+, has presented us with a roster of alternative characters that will surely give a lot of war in the future, although it has also left us without the episode dedicated to Gamora next to Tony Stark and a very special Hulkbuster. And it is that in the last episode of the first season both characters have appeared without previous explanation, since they have not had their own introductory episode like the rest of Guardians of the Multiverse. Why has this happened? Will we ever see this lost episode? The writer is the series A.C. Bradley has answered these questions in a recent interview with the medium Variety.
The pandemic affected those responsible for the episode
Thus, according to Bradley, season 1 went from 10 episodes to 9 due to the difficulties caused by the coronavirus pandemic; And it is that according to the scriptwriter explains, COVID-19 especially affected the team responsible for the episode dedicated to Gamora, which caused its delay to the second season.
“Basically what happened was that we originally had an episode planned for the beginning of the season that was a fun, light-hearted, and focused episode. Tony Stark with Gamora. However, due to the COVID pandemic, one of our animation teams was incredibly affected, and the episode had to be delayed to season two, because it was not going to be finished on time “, assures the writer of the series.
On the plot of the episode itself, Bradley prefers not to reveal much in anticipation of its premiere next year: “I think everyone is going to be surprised by the way in which Gamora get that armor, and how her relationship with Tony evolves, because obviously they are good friends in that part that we see. So it will be a fun universe to see, hopefully, next year, ”concludes the writer.
