The Fox/Disney merger will have a great effect on The Simpsons come early next year. A report from TV Line confirms that an episode of the animated TV show will have a humorous Marvel spin. It’s also set to feature some guest vocals from Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige and Avengers: Endgame directors Anthony and Joe Russo.
According to the report, the episode will revolve around a superhero movie featuring an alien supervillain called Chinnos, He’s an obvious Simpsons-esque take on Thanos, Marvel’s big bad from Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame. However, instead of an Infinity Gauntlet, Chinnos has a gold card in his hand. Feige will also provide the voice for the mighty Chinnos.
Here’s the synopsis; which is also straight from TVLine’s report:
“When Bart is mistaken for a terminally ill child and gets to see a cut of the unreleased sequel of the extremely popular Vindicator superhero movie franchise, he uses spoilers as blackmail to get what he wants.”

Joe and Anthony Russo will play executives who discover Bart has seen the movie. They will also “stop at nothing to keep his spoiler knowledge a secret.”
The Simpsons will likely have a few in-jokes about the Disney and Fox merger. After all, the family already welcomed their new “corporate overlords” in a video last year.
The episode, “Bart: The Bad Guy,” will hit Fox on February 23, 2020.
