Star Wars Marvel What If

What If…? Episode 8 contains amazing hidden Star Wars reference

Marvel’s What If…? has been a wild ride to say the least. We’ve seen Party Thor, Doctor Strange Supreme and even Marvel Zombies. However, one of the biggest surprises to date is a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment in episode 8. And it isn’t even Marvel related!

Mustafar spotted in What If…? Episode 8

That’s right! Eagle eyed fans have managed to spot the infamous Star Wars location Mustafar in the Marvel animated series. Mustafar is of course the planet where Anakin Skywalker fights Obi Wan Kenobi before becoming Darth Vader.

The location can be seen for just a split second when Ultron tackles The Watcher through one of many Universes.

By looking at the image above it’s easy to imagine that it is indeed the Star Wars location. It certainly has a strong resemblance to Mustafar. It even has Darth Vader’s Castle in the background.

Given that Disney owns both Marvel and Star Wars it’s likely that this is just a little easter egg for fans. I don’t think we’re likely to get a crossover event anytime soon. But stranger things have certainly happened.
