Cobie Smulders & Taran Killam join The Simpsons’ upcoming Avengers episode
According to TVLine, MCU star Cobie Smulders and SNL alum Taran Killam have been tapped for guest-starring voice roles in the latest season of The Simpsons. Smulders and Killam will be voicing two of the Vindicator superheroes with Smulders portraying Hydrangea and Killam as Airshot.
They will be joining previously announced guest stars Avengers: Endgame directors Anthony and Joe Russo along with Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer Kevin Feige as they are all set to lend their voices in the animated sitcom’s upcoming Avengers-themed episode titled “Bart and the Bad Guy,” which is scheduled to air on March 1.
In the episode, Bart accidentally watches the unreleased sequel of the extremely popular Vindicator superhero movie franchise (a parody of the MCU) when he got mistaken for a terminally ill child who had wish to see the film first before anyone else. Because of this, Bart takes advantage of the situation by using spoilers as blackmail to get what he wants.
However, when two movie executives (voiced by the Russo brothers) found out about this, they will do anything in their power just to stop Bart’s blackmailing schemes and to prevent spoilers from getting out of the public. Meanwhile, Feige will be lending his voice to the Vindicator’s evil alien supervillain with 37 chins called Chinnos, who is a parody of Josh Brolin’s Thanos. You can check out the full picture of Chinnos below!

The voice is consists of Dan Castellaneta as Homer Simpson, Julie Kavner as his wife Marge, Nancy Cartwright as Bart, and Herman’s Head’s Yeardley Smith as Lisa.
