Fans got their first look at the Marvel Zombies animated series at San Diego Comic-Con, and we learned the show will be rated TV-MA. It was announced during the Marvel Animation panel that the upcoming series will feature Shang-Chi, Kate Bishop, Jimmy Woo, and Red Guardian among the protagonists while zombified versions of Abomination, Scarlet Witch, Captain Marvel, Captain America, and more will appear as antagonists.

In addition, the Disney+ series — which is based on the episode from What If…? season one (itself based on the popular multiversal comic book series) will be rated TV-MA. That makes it the first animated Marvel episode on Disney+ to be given the more mature rating and suggests a more graphically violent take than the What If…? episode.

The series is directed by directed by Bryan Andrews and written by Zeb Wells and “reimagines the Marvel Universe as a new generation of heroes battle against an ever-spreading zombie scourge.”
