Phineas and Ferb to Crossover with Marvel!

Just a few weeks after we heard that Walt Disney Animation Studios are going to include a Marvel-based animated feature in their canon, the Don Hall directed Big Hero 6, we now get word of another crossover. A few hours ago at Comic-Con, Phineas and Ferb creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff "Swampy" Marsh announced that the super-successful Disney Channel show will collide with some of Marvel's most famous heroes, in Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel!

The episode, due next summer, sees four of Marvel's biggest names: Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor and Hulk, accidentally drained of their powers by a lucky Dr. Doofenshmirtz. Phineas, Ferb and their friends must then help the heroes regain their powers in time to combat the villainous team of Red Skull, Whiplash, Venom, M.O.D.O.K. and, obviously, Doofenshmirtz.

You can see the producers of the show and higherups from Marvel talking about Mission Marvel (above), and any potential there is for future crossovers.

Whilst crossovers aren't always tasteful or necessary, they are damn cool. This looks and sounds damn cool. I have the utmost faith in the Phineas and Ferb team to execute it well, but we'll have to wait and see.
