En el capítulo “What If… Captain Carter Were the First Avenger?” (1×01) de What would happen if…? (AC Bradley, since 2021), the history of Captain America the First Avenger (Joe Johnston, 2011); en “What If… T’Challa Became a Star-Lord?” (1×02), se trastoca la de Black Panther (Ryan Coogler, 2018), the two volumes of Guardians of the Galaxy (James Gunn, 2014, 2017) and the whole thing with Thanos (Josh Brolin).
Durante “What If… the World Lost Its Mightiest Heroes?” (1×03) se perpetra lo mismo con The Avengers (Joss Whedon, 2012) y la Infinity Saga usually; and now, “What If… Doctor Strange Lost His Heart Instead of His Hands?” (1×04) changes the events of one of the most particular films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that of Doctor Strange (Scott Derrickson, 2016).
Is about a substantial variation of the story of the egocentric neurosurgeon played by Londoner Benedict Cumberbatch, who has also been the Paul Marshall of Atonement: Beyond Passion (Joe Wright, 2007), Joseph Hooker en Darwin’s doubt (Jon Amiel, 2009), the great detective from Sherlock (Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, 2010-2017), the voice of the Necromancer and Smaug in the trilogy of The Hobbit (Peter Jackson, 2012-2014), the Khan of Star Trek: Into Darkness, Ford en Twelve years of slavery, the Julian Assange of The fifth estate (J. J. Abrams, Steve McQueen, Bill Condon, 2013) o Billy Bulger en Black Mass: Estrictamente criminal (Scott Cooper, 2015).
A very different journey for Doctor Strange
Such a variation of What would happen if…? transforms it into a more classic and emotional trip than it was originally in Scott Derrickson’s feature film (Emily Rose’s exorcism) for its loving and tragic elements. Thus, the sequence of the first third with a dynamic similar to the one that Doctor Strange develops with Dormammu, along with Caught in time (Harold Ramis, 1993), it moves us more than any other of the same.
It is not that a contribution like that is not very seen already repeating the formula, but such a circumstance does not mean that it is as effective as it is necessary and that it deserves the attempt. On the other hand, “What If … Doctor Strange Lost His Heart Instead of His Hands?” takes you to a place and time of magic, your own domain field, that we love visiting with Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sorcerer Supreme.
It is reproduces behaviors that viewers know for one of the post-credit scenes of Doctor Strange about Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) or, of course, for the intentions of our dear Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn) in WandaVision (Jac Schaeffer, 2021) regarding the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). The animation of these scenes seems to us visually very attractive, and gives us a nod to “What If … Captain Carter Were the First Avenger?”
The best of ‘What if …?’ with difference
But what makes this episode the jewel of What would happen if…? at the moment it’s his last leg, with a splendid turn, a showdown exciting and extraordinarily elaborate in the design of his drawings and the animated technique, a most surprising intervention, which breaks the walls of the narrative scheme without betraying the essence of the story, and the most honest and different ending, not only of this television fiction of Disney Plus, but of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.
It is possible that chapters two and three were very interesting alterations of what we had been told about this gang of superheroes, but the “What If … Doctor Strange Lost His Heart Instead of His Hands?” it is another level. Do yourself a favor, fans of marvel adventures, and Do not miss it.
