In the realm of Marvel’s ever-expanding universe, stories intertwine and heroes often find themselves in the most unexpected of scenarios. The anticipated second season of “What If…?” on Disney+ promises just that – a thrilling adventure where the God of Thunder and the Master of Kung Fu cross paths in a way never seen before.
The rumored details surrounding a particular episode titled “What If… Hela found the Ten Rings?” have recently surfaced, setting the fan community ablaze with excitement. In this speculative dive, Hela, the Goddess of Death, is seemingly cast out of Asgard, not unlike her story arc in “Thor: Ragnarok”. Yet, instead of finding solace in Hel, she stumbles upon the mystical realm of Ta-Lo, known to us from “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.”

In an intriguing twist, Hela is not shunned but rather welcomed by the inhabitants of Ta-Lo, where she even picks up their martial arts skills. However, peace is short-lived as Odin, the All-Father, decides to invade, resulting in an epic war between Asgard and Ta-Lo. Notably, the rumored details highlight a stark change in Hela’s armor, shifting from its traditional black and green to an all-white ensemble.

Bryan Andrews, the director of “What If…?”, has teased that the upcoming season will push the boundaries of storytelling even further, hinting at wilder and more outlandish tales to come. He reflects on the abundance of ideas that the creative team had at their disposal, some of which were deemed too ambitious for the initial season. This not only sets high expectations for Season 2 but also leaves the door open for even more fantastical stories in the potential Season 3.
