The Simpsons Is Doing An Avengers Episode With Special Guests

"Bart the Bad Guy" premieres this Sunday.


This Sunday's episode of The Simpsons will be themed around Marvel and The Avengers. A poster for the episode, "Bart the Bad Guy," is clearly riffing on The Avengers in many ways.

"Marbel Presents: The Simpsons: Bart the Bad Guy," reads the poster, which is filled with references to Marvel characters with the art style of The Simpsons. Check it out below.

The episode was written by Dan Vebber who wrote earlier episodes of The Simpsons, as well as Futurama and American Dad. It airs on March 1 on Fox.

Avengers directors Joe and Anthony Russo will voice characters in the episode, while Marvel boss Kevin Feige will voice "Chinos," who appears to be a new version of Thanos. Commenters have remarked that Maggie is missing from the poster, and that's because "she's a little too young to watch superhero movies," Fox says.

The Simpsons is currently in its 31st season, and with its 636th episode in 2018 surpassed Gunsmoke to set a new record for more episodes of a prime time scripted TV series.

There is no end in sight for The Simpsons, but the producers are preparing for a future without the show by announcing even more original animated shows.
