It remains an open question whether the Marvel movie and TV universes will ever reconcile, but Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will add a new wrinkle with its April 4 return. Catch a glimmer of the “What If” Hydra universe with first photos and a new synopsis for the final Season 4 “pod.”

Marvel and ABC debuted a few new photos of the April 4 “What If … ” return, exploring the virtual-reality alternate universe of Radcliffe’s “Framework.” We still don’t know the exact nature of this world (which appears to follow Hydra succeeding in its Winter Soldier takeover), though we at least get our first look at Brett Dalton’s return as Grant Ward:

Additionally, here’s a synopsis for the April 4 return, which seems to reveal Vijay Nadeer’s return from his second Inhuman cocooning:

“What If…” – Hail the New World Order! Daisy and Simmons uncover secrets and lies in a world gone mad. With Hydra in control, they are our only hope to save everyone, on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” TUESDAY, APRIL 4 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network.
