Phineas and Ferb – one of Disney’s most popular animated shows with tweens – will be crossing over with some of Marvel’s most popular superheroes next summer on The Disney Channel.

In Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel, Spider-Man and three of The Avengers (Iron Man, Thor and The Incredible Hulk) are dragged into the Phines and Ferb universe – minus their powers!
