Next week, the first season of Marvel’s What If…? comes to a close with an epic finale. What, on the other hand, can fans expect from the ninth episode?
Following the great Marvel drought of 2020, the MCU has gotten back on track this year, with a never-ending stream of new films and TV shows hitting theatres and Disney+.
The animated series What If…?, which has posed questions about the alternate realities that exist in the MCU, is the most recent addition to the small screen.
Fans can’t wait to see what episode 9 of What If…? has in store because each episode so far has told a completely different story, but that changed with the eighth installment.
What If…? Episode 9 Speculations
The ultimate showdown between Ultron and The Watcher will be featured in episode 9 of ‘What If…?’ With The Watcher requesting Strange Supreme’s assistance at the end of the previous episode, it’s clear that the two will team up to take on Ultron and his forces.
The Sorcerer Supreme, on the other hand, will not be enough to defeat the genocidal robot on his own. The Watcher will have some recruiting to do, and we’re likely to see superheroes from some of the show’s previous realities make an appearance.
The two most likely candidates are Party Thor and Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow (from Ultron’s home universe). At the end of Episode 7, Ultron appears in front of Party Thor, implying that the God of Thunder will be involved.
Natasha, likewise, holds the key to deactivating Ultron’s program, and her involvement is unavoidable. King Killmonger, Captain Carter, Captain Marvel, Star-Lord T’Challa, and Mad Titan Gamora are among the heroes who could help The Watcher’s team.
We can expect a lot of action in the season finale, with the newly formed Guardians of the Multiverse facing off against Ultron and his forces. It will be interesting to see if The Watcher confronts the cosmos.

Recap of Episode 8

In this reality, as The Watcher explains, the Avengers were unable to prevent Ultron from fusing his organic body with the mind stone. In his misguided quest for peace, Ultron decimated almost all life on Earth.
