‘Phineas and Ferb’ Team-Up With Marvel Heroes in First Disney Character/Marvel Crossover

Worlds are about to collide on the Disney Channel.

In the first ever team-up between Disney characters and Marvel characters, kid inventors Phineas and Ferb will embark on an adventure with Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor and The Hulk to defeat a cadre of Marvel Super Villains and their own nemesis Dr. Doofenshmirtz in Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel. The big event is set to go down on Friday, August 16th at 8PM on Disney, but beginning August 12th Disney Channel SVOD and verified users on WATCHDisneychannel.com and the WATCH Disney Channel app for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch can catch a sneak peek of the episode ahead of the premiere.

“The Marvel series and ‘Phineas and Ferb‘ both feature strong, memorable characters and compelling stories for kids and families alike, and we’re excited to present their great match-up to Disney Channel and Disney XD viewers this summer,” said Eric Coleman, Senior Vice President, Original Series, Disney Television Animation in a statement.

The episode will feature the Marvel heroes struck powerless thanks to Dr. Doofenshmirtz’s power-draining “inator.” Marvel Super Villains Red Skull, Whiplash, Venom and M.O.D.O.K. are so impressed with the Doctor’s inventive prowess they decide to team-up with him to create mayhem in Danville, leaving Phineas and Ferb to work out a way to restore the heroes’ powers before the villains can expand their horizons beyond Danville to the whole world.

Marvel fans need not worry that the iconic characters will seem out of sorts in the wacky world of Danville though. Phineas and Ferb creators and executive producers Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh worked closely with the Marvel team to ensure the two worlds came together smoothly. (And as a special treat for Marvel fans, comic book legend Stan Lee will pop up as himself in the episode.)

“This is a real Marvel Super Hero operation,” said Jeph Loeb, Head of Marvel Television. “It’s an extraordinary opportunity for these two franchises to come together and create an adventure never before seen in the world of Marvel and Disney.”

Once again, Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel will premiere Friday, August 16th at 8PM on Disney Channel. A special rebroadcast hosted by Dr. Doofenshmirtz via “Doof’s Daily Dirt” and featuring six spots, including Dr. Doof dishing on his exploits with the Marvel Super Villains will air on Disney XD on Sunday, August 25th at 10:00 a.m. ET/PT.
