Phineas & Ferb may not seem like the ideal first Disney/Marvel crossover property - until you really take a look at the popular comedy/action animated show. It takes a few geniuses, a superspy (who happens to be a platypus) who fights off an evil villain's nefarious schemes, and has even seen the two brothers form their own superhero!
So when Phineas & Ferb: Mission Marvel was announced in the Summer of 2012, fans of both properties knew it was a perfect fit. Today, thanks to USAToday.com, we have the first full trailer for the special. It features Red Skull saying "Who was that masked beaver-duck," if you need reason to watch. Let's repeat that: Red Skull says "beaver-duck."
The story has Dr. Doofenshmirtz, a mad scientist out to rule the entire Tri-State Area, accidentally doing something incredible: sapping the superpower out of Hulk, Thor, Spider-Man, and Iron Man. Yes, it's a little ridiculous (why is Hulk not changing back to Banner? How does one ray drain two radiation-based heroes, a tech hero, and a god? Why must comic book fans be so dang nit-picky and not just enjoy the funny show?), but that's what Phineas & Ferb is all about.
So go watch the trailer, and find out what my godson will be watching five hundred times this summer.
Phineas & Ferb: Mission Marvel is coming to Disney Channel this Summer.
