Various characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe have joined forces with the iconic Disney community in an impressive new art collection. The expanding franchise known as the MCU began with Iron Man in 2008, and series 1 of the franchise ended with the 2012 crossover film The Avengers when Thor, Captain America and The Incredible Hulk were introduced. Since then, the series has grown to include 30 films and 10 TV titles, with many more coming in the next few years, featuring heroes such as Guardians of the Galaxy, Ant-Man, Doctor Who Strange and Spider-Man.
TikTok user Enstatia recently posted a video in which a fan combines iconic MCU heroes and villains with special partners from Disney’s animated films and creates mashups of the two. The video opens with Daredevil (Charlie Cox) and the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland teaming up in a card-carrying demon that’s reminiscent of the X-Men’s Gambit. Next are Moon Knight (Oscar Isaac) and Bruno d’Encanto, followed by Baron Zemo (Daniel Brühl) and Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmatians, ending with The Grand Master (Jeff Goldblum) who portrays Ursula from and The Little Mermaid. Will Marvel’s Avengers cross paths with Disney characters?
While these mashups are fun to imagine, it’s possible Marvel will cross the legal line with Disney’s classics. Disney owns Marvel Studios, so the rights to most of the two IPs belong to them. However, given the large number of heroes and villains that already exist in the MCU canon, and how many are yet to come (including Blade, Adam Warlock, Deadpool and Wolverine), it seems unlikely that such a project will be attempted. . at any time. Soon in the MCU proper. However, that’s not to say that Marvel and Disney characters won’t rub shoulders with other forms of media. Of course, Disney parks already feature characters from both universes, so there’s a precedent set for them literally inhabiting the same space. Disney also has a history of unusual mashups, including their involvement in the Kingdom Hearts franchise, a video game series that combines original mythology with characters from Disney animated novels and the Final Fantasy video game world. .
The best place for Marvel Cinematic Universe characters to meet Disney heroes and villains would be in video games. Their 2013 release Disney Infinity (which includes characters from Disney, Star Wars, Marvel and Pixar) has already made some inroads into this area. However, this crossover could also easily happen in the future as the franchise explores endless numbers, although it will likely happen with a title that is running like the animated series What If…?, which imagines another version of the popular universe.
