Production is now underway on Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel, an animated adventure that will assemble characters from two hugely popular franchises, Disney‘s Phineas and Ferb and Marvel‘s iconic Super Heroes: Spider-Man and The Avengers (Iron Man, Thor and Hulk). The epic television event, premiering in summer 2013 on Disney Channel, will mark the first crossover animated television special for Marvel and Disney properties. Working closely with Marvel’s creative team, Phineas and Ferb creators and executive producers Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh are designing Marvel’s Super Heroes and Super Villains including Red Skull, Whiplash, Venom and M.O.D.O.K. to fit the Danville world of the Emmy Award-winning series.
“Our partnership with Marvel has yielded big returns this year — first with the launch of the Marvel Universe block on Disney XD, and now with production beginning on the Phineas and Ferb / Marvel special. To paraphrase Phineas himself: best year EVER!,” said Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide.
