Marvel Zombies is about to rise from the grave and land in the MCU – here’s everything we know so far, from its release date to cast, and plot.

Marvel Zombies, a spin-off series from another MCU animated series, What If…? is well in the works, and fans are getting very excited for it.

This upcoming Disney+ series is set to be gory, gruesome, and unlike most of the stuff we’ve seen in the MCU – barring What If…?, obviously.

While not a ton of official information has been released about the project, except a mention at this year’s Marvel presentation for San Diego Comic-Con, there’s still plenty to talk about. So here’s everything we know so far.

Marvel Zombies: does it have a release date?

As of writing, there is no specific release date for Marvel Zombies.

This show will be the first one released by Marvel with a TV-MA rating, and it will also be the shortest, with only four episodes.

Michael Zeb Wells, the head writer and executive producer on Marvel Zombies, stated at Comic-Con that he wasn’t sure when the series was coming out, but that he was excited about the project:

“So I did not do [the Zombie episode] but I’m doing the spin-off. So it’s not out yet. But I love that episode too, so when I got the call that they were going to do a spin-off from that episode, I was like ‘oh yeah, let’s do it.’ So it’s four episodes, not sure when it comes yet, but it’s looking really cool.”

Marvel Zombies cast: Who is starring in the show?

As of now, Simu Li, AKA Shang Chi, is the only confirmed cast member for Marvel Zombies. However, it is expected that most of the show’s characters will be voiced by their live action actors.

The show will most likely include all of the characters that the Zombie episode of What If…? did, along with some newcomers, which overall includes:


  • Captain America (Who could either be voiced by Chris Evans or Hudson Thames)
  • Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner)
  • Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen)
  • Captain Marvel (Brie Larson)
  • Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen)
  • The Abomination (Time Roth)
  • Ikaris (Richard Madden)


  • Ant Man (Paul Rudd)
  • Spider-Man (Who could either be voice by Tom Holland or Josh Keaton)
  • Black Panther (It is uncertain who will voice Black Panther as of now)
  • Shang Chi (Simu Li)
  • Katy Chen (Awkwafina)
  • Death Dealer (Ande Le)
  • Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld)
  • Jimmy Woo (Randall Park)
  • Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh)
  • Red Guardian (David Harbour)
  • Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani)

According to social media account canwegetsometoast, zombie Scarlet Witch is set to be known as The Dead Queen in the show.

Marvel Zombies plot: What will happen in the show?

Marvel Zombies currently has no official plot synopsis. However, it will be obviously inspired by the events of the Zombie What If…? episode, along with the comic series of the same name.

The story of the comics explores an apocalyptic version of the MCU, where a Quantum Virus has turned most of the MCU’s superheroes into zombies.

What If… Zombies!? ended on a cliffhanger, with survivors heading to Wakanda to create a cure for the virus using the Mind Stone. However, Zombie Thanos was there waiting for them. It seems that the new show will be picking up from where that episode left off, which means a big zombie battle is on the way.

Marvel’s What If…? is currently available to stream on Disney+.
