Things are about to get weird as Marvel dives headfirst into the multiverse, so it's not a bad idea to watch Marvel What If...? online if you want to see what's next for the franchise. The entire season is now available for anyone with a Disney Plus membership, so signing up will allow you to stream Marvel What If...? from start to finish.

How do you watch Marvel What If...? online for less, then? Now that the Disney Plus free trial is gone, the cheapest way of seeing the show would be via a standard monthly Disney Plus subscription. This costs $7.99 in the US, £7.99 in the UK, and $11.99 in both Canada or Australia. 

However, that isn't necessarily the best method in terms of value. Instead, the honor goes to a three-for-the-price-of-two bundle with Disney Plus, Hulu, and ESPN Plus for $13.99 per month. That way you get something to suit everyone, particularly thanks to Hulu's more grown-up dramas (this has always been a weak spot for the family-friendly Disney Plus). 

No matter which deal you go for, the investment's worth it to watch Marvel What If...? online. This season's quality kept improving from episode to episode, and it almost always sneaks in a few "WTF?" moments. More specifically, this animated series lays the groundwork for many future MCU stories thanks to its focus on alternate universes. What if Agent Carter took the super-soldier serum instead of Steve Rogers? What if T'Challa was abducted by aliens instead of Peter Quill? As we mentioned in our review, it's a fun idea with endless possibilities. And because these worlds are canonical additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, characters from the show might appear in live-action movies further down the line.
