What If…? Star Jeffrey Wright Compares The Watcher to ‘Biggest Marvel Fans’


show’s star Jeffrey Wright talked about his character, the Watcher, and how he relates to Marvel fans.

Wright said, “Playing the watcher, who is described in his first appearance in Marvel comics that was in 1963 is something like the most dramatic being known in the universe. So, he’s a fairly dramatic guy [and] he’s a fairly powerful guy.”

Wright explained that the Watcher is similar to The Twilight Zone’s Rod Serling and Marvel’s biggest fans. He said, “He is kind of overseeing the entire MCU, he’s overseeing the multiverses and plays somewhat of a Rod Serling role here, kind of narrating, kind of not. In some ways [he] may be the biggest Marvel fan there is, watching all that transpires and dealing with certain temptations to involve himself. But at the same time, just kind of living vicariously through these characters, these stories, this mythology, and taking it all in. He’s got probably the highest cable bill you could possibly imagine.” The actor added, “I think fans can relate to him in many ways.”

Wright was also asked whether he would be open to playing the Watcher in a live-action project. He said, “What If…? is very much about the idea that all things are possible, so that’s a reasonable question. And I guess the answer to it is, well, ‘What if?’ So, I’ll leave it at that.”

Marvel’s What If…? debuts on Disney Plus Hotstar Premium on August 11.
