This Wednesday sees the release of the highly anticipated Marvel Zombies episode of the What If…? animated series that is currently airing on Disney Plus.
Marvel has released two posters for the fifth episode, a Marvel Zombie Captain America poster, and a Marvel Zombie Hawkeye poster. See below.
Per the norm with the series, the show takes a “What If?” approach with the MCU and doesn’t follow the comics, as Marvel Comics first released the Marvel Zombies comic book back in 2005 from writer Robert Kirkman who would go on to do The Walking Dead.
The Marvel Zombies comics are described by Marvel Comics as:
Earth is overrun with an apocalyptic plague. The infected wander the streets in undead hordes, feeding on live flesh while spreading their infection. Welcome to the dystopian world of Marvel Zombies, a dismal reality where Earth’s heroes undergo an undead transformation. Our zombiefied hits collected here, all for your spine-tingling pleasure!
