"Loki is banished from Asgard once again and must face his toughest opponents yet: the Simpsons and Springfield’s mightiest heroes," reads the official statement from Disney+. "The God of Mischief teams up with Bart Simpson in the ultimate crossover event paying tribute to the Marvel Cinematic Universe of Super Heroes and villains."
Tom Hiddleston will lend his voice for the animated short, which will include several fan-favorite Simpsons characters. The official artwork for "The Good, the Bart, and the Loki" is a spin on the poster for Marvel Studios' Avengers: Endgame. Check it out below:
