The Sorcerer Supreme steps into the spotlight this week.

Things are getting stranger on Marvel’s What If…?

Across its first three episodes, the Disney+ series has focused on alternate versions of several notable Marvel Cinematic Universe characters, including Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson).

Now, What If…?’s fourth installment offers Marvel fans time with a new version of Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), one very unlike the Sorcerer Supreme of the MCU’s prime reality.

Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming Disney+ premiere of What If…? Episode 4.

What If…? Episode 4 debuts Wednesday, September 1st on Disney+. After that, only five of the show’s nine Season 1 episodes will remain.

How long is the What If…? Episode 4 runtime?

What If…? Episode 4’s runtime has yet to be confirmed by either Marvel or Disney+.

Episode 4 will likely stick close to that half-hour mark as well.

However, the episode is said to follow a version of Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) who, instead of becoming a benevolent Sorcerer Supreme, takes a more nefarious path towards power and begins wielding much darker forms of magic.
