Marvel’s What If…? abandoned a possible Spider-Man 2023 story because it would have been too dark.

Speaking to IGN, What If…? head writer A.C. Bradley revealed that a Spider-Man episode was cut because it was darker than season 2 of the animated series was aiming to be. Check out the full quote below:

“It felt like the world was already ending and we didn’t need to add to it. And so it became kind of an escape and a fun release. However, I did write an episode, which is forever going in a drawer, that was very, very dark. I was calling it ‘Children of Men with Spider Man.’”
