What would it take to make the Watcher (Jeffrey Wright) break his vow of never interfering on Marvel's What If…? We're about to find out.
The season 1 finale (streaming Wednesday on Disney+) is appropriately titled “What If… The Watcher Broke His Oath?” and features the all-seeing narrator doing whatever he can to stop Ultron (voiced by Ross Marquand), who now wields all the Infinity Stones and just became aware of the multiverse. “It goes places you don't expect,” director Bryan Andrews tells EW. “I know people are starting to get a sensation that things are building to something — and they are. And craziness ensues.”
While the Watcher has remained in the background of the series so far, it was Ultron's new mission of conquering the multiverse that shook the powerful alien into finally reaching out to one of the heroes he refused to interact with before — Doctor Strange Supreme (Benedict Cumberbatch), who has been trapped in his destroyed universe prison ever since. And according to head writer AC Bradley, Strange Supreme isn't the only character returning in the finale.
