What If Episode 9 Review: Discussion
Disney+ What If last episode intrigues you with the way it starts. The way The Watcher picks up the chosen heroes is hilariously creepy. When they all come together, the writers have added jokes to lighten the tension from the previous episode. Unfortunately, they overdid with jokes in today’s episode as it delayed the action we all were waiting to see.
When Ultron and the Guardians have a showdown, I was glued to the screen till the end. Today’s episode is packed with magnificent action scenes, stunning visuals and amazing twists. Strange Supreme gave me more reasons to be a fan because of how powerful he appears in front of deadly Ultron. A few fight scenes are inspired by The Avengers (2012) and Avengers: Endgame (2019) battle scenes.
The animation in today’s episode is spectacular; almost every scene is breathtaking. The action scenes are choreographed neatly, unlike a bit of a mess we saw during Endgame. In the movies, the infinity saga is over. But today’s episode is a good amalgamation of Infinity stones and the multiverse.
What If Episode 9 Review: Final Discussion
Overall, the finale is intriguing and a hit. It’s a dream come true for every MCU fan to see a fight between Ultron and the superheroes. However, some jokes were a put-off. It is the last time we get to see Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa, and yet again, he proves why he’s loved. So don’t waste any time and just watch the outcome of Watcher breaking his oath.
What If…? Episode 9 is now streaming on Disney+.
