Gamora’s latest appearance in What If…? had a lot of fans upset. The final episode of the Marvel series features an alternate version of the Guardian. However, some viewers are upset that they didn’t get to see her do more in the fight against Ultron Vision. Even more galling for these fans is the fact that her journey sounded interesting from the small snippets you glean from this week’s dialogue. In her home universe, Gamora actually killed Thanos and survived Sakaar. So, clearly a lot of things went differently in this alternate version of the MCU that people hold near and dear. Previously, writer A.C. Bradley told EW about decisions to cut an episode here or leave a storyline out. A lot of the users voicing their displeasure on social media believe that this Gamora was one of those casualties. There’s still time to learn more about the woman that killed Thanos. But, it will have to wait until next season.

During a press conference What If…? executive producer Brad Winderbaum talked about how central this animated series is to the fabric of the MCU as the multiverse becomes a bigger factor in live-action.
“It’s no coincidence that the show picks up right after Loki…The multiverse has erupted in every possible direction,” Winderbaum began. ” [it] gives us a chance to explore that… I think that without going into great detail, I can tell you that What If…? — as a project, as a story that exists in the MCU — is as important as any other and is woven into that tapestry,” the executive producer added.
Do you feel like Gamora got the short end of the stick? Let us know down in the comments!
Such mixed reception
What if delivered on some cool animated action sequences. I will definitely give it that. Overall the finale plus episode 7,8 saved the show. It Atleast somewhat stuck the landing. Very shaky landing. Can’t say I hate the show. I’m peeved we didn’t get to see the Gamora Episode pic.twitter.com/qadoW2RJeC

Could it have been delayed?
Pretty good finale! It was fun seeing all of these characters come together to fight Ultron. What hurt this episode was delaying the Gamora story. She felt so out of place here. Overall, this was an enjoyable finale and kept us busy for 9 weeks. #WhatIf pic.twitter.com/JkvGpwF5KM

Seeing a lot of this
The Zombie episode should have been the one left on the cutting floor instead of the Tony/Gamora one, it didnt serve any purpose
