Since Disney acquired Marvel in the early days of their mission to own much of our childhood memories and the associated merchandising rights, fans have always hoped/feared for a Disney/Marvel crossover.
From the looks of Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel, we need not be concerned.
When the heroes of the Marvel Universe suddenly lose their powers, their foes are drawn to Phineas and Ferb’s hometown of Danville to team up with the diabolical genius of… Dr Doofenshmirtz? And that forces the heroes (Thor, Spider-Man, Iron Man, and Hulk) to join forces with Phineas and Ferb to stop them. And, yes, there is a Stan Lee cameo.
But don’t expect goofy versions of your favorite heroes in this tale. Everyone acts exactly as you’d expect them to act. But you have to know that when they meet the likes of Phineas, Ferb, Doofenshmirtz, and, of course, Perry the Platypus, things are going to get weird.
And don’t expect this to be the last crossover adventure for Phineas and Ferb. Disney is already working on Phineas and Ferb’s first adventure into the Star Wars universe, taking on a series of hilarious adventures that happened just outside the frame of the original 1977 film. Look for it sometime next summer.
Make sure to watch Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel on August 16, 2013, on Disney Channel at 8pm ET/PT and August 25, 2013, on Disney XD.
