Now that the Disney–Fox merger is finished, it seems that The Simpsons will have some fun with it. In the upcoming episode of the show, the most irreverent family of Springfield will make fun of the Avengers franchise.
To pump up the fans’ hype, producer Matt Selman has revealed a very Endgame-themed poster. The episode will feature cameos from Avengers directors Joe and Anthony Russo, and Avengers‘ Cobie Smulders. On top of that, none other than Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige himself will make his appearance. The Russos will be appearing as themselves, while Feige will voice Chinnos, a sort of Thanos with too many chins.
According to the official synopsis, in Bart the Bad Guy, Bart manages — by way of a massive misunderstanding — to see an advance cut of the unreleased sequel of the extremely popular Vindicator superhero movie franchise. And he quickly discovers that he can leverage his recently procured spoiler knowledge as blackmail material. But when the studio execs behind the film learn of Bart’s scheme, they vow to stop at nothing to silence him.
The Simpsons have parodied a lot of comic-book related characters several times in the past such as Batman, Superman, and many writers. The godfather of Marvel – Stan Lee himself – had multiple appearances in the series.
The next episode of The Simpsons airs on Sunday, March 1 at 8 p.m. ET on Fox. Are you going to watch the upcoming Bart the Bad Guy episode? Let us know in the comments section below.
