What If Season 1 Finale Poster Shows Gamora In Thanos' Endgame Armor

A new promotional poster for the final episode of Season 1 of Marvel Studio's What If…? has been released, showing an alternate version of Guardians Of The Galaxy's Gamora. What If…? is an animated anthology series releasing weekly on Disney+ following alternate timelines of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and narrated by the cosmic being Uatu The Watcher. The ninth and final episode of the show's first season (title still unknown) is set to release this week and promises to be a thrilling conclusion.

As has been the case each week, Marvel waited until days before the episode airs to reveal the character taking center stage in this particular story. Gamora appeared on the show's first big poster but has yet to be seen in the actual series. Now it seems she will finally join the battle, and she's never been more needed. Following the shocking events of season 1, episode 8, "What If… Ultron Won?," it's looking likely that The Watcher is going to revisit all of Season 1's separate heroes and recruit them to battle Ultron, who has gained the power of the infinity stones and threatens the entire multiverse.

In a new poster, revealed on Marvel Studios' Twitter, Marvel confirms "Gamora arrives!" as the former Guardian of the Galaxy is shown wearing a version of her adopted father Thanos' Titan Armor from Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. As has been the case with each week's promotional poster, Gamora's backdrop features rings of imagery from the show's different timelines, implying a coming together of parallel heroes and villains.

As previously seen in the show's multi-character first poster, Gamora also appears to be holding Thanos' double-edged sword, last seen in the battle against The Avengers. The weapon is one of Thanos' most dangerous possessions, and Gamora's handling of it here implies she inherited it from the villain following his death, or she has taken it by force. Whether Thanos himself will appear in the upcoming episode remains to be seen.

What separates this version of Gamora from the one familiar to audiences from the main MCU timeline? Perhaps this Gamora was raised loyal to her Titan father and is out to avenge him? Alternatively, this could be a more ruthless Gamora who has overthrown the mighty Thanos and taken his weapons for her own. As with every story What If…? has told so far, the possibilities are endless.

Last week's episode ended with The Watcher seeking the help of Dark Doctor Strange from season 1, episode 4, "What If… Doctor Strange Lost His Heart Instead of His Hands?" leaving the series open for a satisfying team-up in this upcoming finale. This new version of Gamora will be a fresh face if she finds herself teaming up with Captain Carter, Doctor Strange, and Party Thor, but there's still a possibility she could be on the side of evil. For now, this new interpretation of the Marvel hero remains a mystery, with her backstory and allegiances likely to be kept under wraps until the episode airs. What If…? Season 1 episode 9 releases on Wednesday, October 6th, 2021. Episodes 1-8 are streaming now on Disney+.
