On the August 25, 2021 episode of /Film Daily, /Film senior writer Ben Pearson is joined by senior writer and weekend editor Brad Oman to have a spoiler-filled discussion about the third episode of Marvel’s “What If…?”

Opening Banter

In The Spoiler Room: “What If...The World Lost Its Mightiest Heroes?”

  • Feedback
    • “I'm surprised no one talked about the other effect this timeline had on Thanos shown in this episode. When fighting at Knowhere, a single electrical shock from Proxima Midnight knocked him out. This can't be the same Thanos that Thor, Iron Man, and Captain America couldn't defeat, let alone incapacitate in Endgame even before he re-acquired the Infinity Stones. P.S. I'm sending this tongue-in-cheek. I know this is more of an alteration of convenience in a cartoon, but I did think it worth noting.” - Jeremy N, Virginia
