You may of heard about it, but for the people who haven't heard of it yet. Bob Iger (CEO of Walt Disney Imagineering) recently announced plans for Marvel based Attracions coming to Disney parks Specifically an Avengers ride in headed towards Disney parks. Along with that Disney also announced plans for having Marvel characters at Disney parks also in the near future. Now there are tons of sources out there but here's one: http:/tinyurl.com/cp8yn4t So its only a matter of time when we start seeing Marvel characters walking around Disneyland.... Comment on what you think.

Marvel seems more universal studios, then Disney. For me, it doesn't mesh well. - GarnerPhotography  324.9 #776 8:14AM
I totally agree. As much as I like the Marvel Universe, it should be separate from the Disneyverse. - JumbaJookiba  234.6 #1547 8:19AM
I don't think its going to mesh well either. Disney bought Marvel back in 2009 and they are Finally doing something with it, plus knowing that there are Marvel attractions at Universal Studios Florida, its just not going to feel right at a Disney Park. - CduckettC  8.8 #11908 8:38AM
The reason nothing has been done is because of the marvel land in universal. Disney decided to let universal keep their attractions until their contract with marvel was up (end of 2012) and once that contract expires all those attractions will be rethemed. - lostgirl7988  697.8 #279 12:42PM
I know Disney owns marvel or even a part of it , but I think it will take the Disney feeling out of Disneyland - dsnyfan1  8.7 #12059 11:08AM
I'm not too jazzed about marvel characters in DLR... BUT ( kind of just playing devils advocate ) did we feel the same about star wars themed rides.. characters, merchandise..ect. 20+ years ago? and this has fit very welll in the park IMO. just a thought. - tuesday737  1283.4 #134 11:45AM
I see where you're going with this, and totally feel ya, but Star Wars had that Special feel back then also, The Magic of Fantasy that Lucas created, Marvel on the other hand I dont feel has the same touch. Don't get me wrong, I loved the comics as a kid, but I just feel it isn't the same.. My $0.02 - Goofdog  170.4 #2404 11:49AM
I'm not thrilled, but maybe it will be awesome...I will have to wait and see how it ends up.. - Mermaidmommy  32.9 #5721 11:49AM
Unconfirmed, but I was told Disney well replace autopia, inovations and Nemo for other rides. Can some 1 confirm? - SulleyInc  85.4 #3833 12:01PM
I also read that. I think there was an article on Micechat.com - Goofdog  170.4 #2404 12:11PM
I don't think they should bring Marvel into the Disney parks. It just wouldn't feel like Disney. Hopefully Bob will hear what the people would want. - coll  31.4 #5853 12:50PM
Oh goodness, just when I thought I was ready to sleep...now I gotta look into this... - sleepyhead_CM  596.5 #341 4:53AM
I think Hawkeye better be hot. But in all seriousness, I think it's awesome. Maybe moreso at DCA than DL, but Marvel is a part of Disney now, so bring it on in!  - KylaShea  632.7 #319 5:22AM
Ya I see what you mean, but I think it might be unusual seeing marvel characters around Disneyland along with Mickey and the rest. - CduckettC  8.8 #11908 7:47AM
hawkeye and merida will have an archery contest. - Radius  502.7 #425 8:41AM
Not sure how I feel about this. Where are they going to put it? I can also think of plenty of other ideas for new rides that are more in tune with the DL make up. What about an Incredibles or Up related theme attraction? - potatohead25  714.1 #271 7:58AM
I thought that I heard it was going to all stay on the DCA side.... cos that side does have a different feel then DL. My boys would love it!!! They have so much princess - PrincessConswayla  5.1 #18347 12:52PM
Ahhhh please please please edit your post and shorten the link by using tiny URL or something like it. It's making the lounge all streched out. Thank you in advance!! - Duchess_SMK  6340.7 #18 8:01AM
Thank you for editing!!! ((hugs)) - Duchess_SMK  6340.7 #18 2:55PM
It will be interesting to see what they do with frontierland, but i agree. Marvel doesn't fit in at the current parks. They would need a whole different park for this. - Oinker34  1448.8 #116 8:18AM
YES. this is so exciting to me! I'm such a Marvel guy. I love it. - SoloSiyoNqoba  600.4 #340 8:22AM
Avengers Assemble! - RobinandSteve  249.3 #1358 8:41AM
I also read about a week ago that they are interested in creating a Marvel themed Disney park on one of the adjacent lots. - Goofdog  170.4 #2404 8:48AM
Yes, I read the same thing. They're considering using the Toy Story lot (100 acres) for a thrill ride, Marvel-themed park. - susieQzee  555.8 #366 11:37AM
That's right, it was the Toy Story lot, Agreed, segregate them, I don't think they should be walking around the parks with the other Disney characters, I enjoy Marvel, just that they don't bring that "magical" feel you get from Disney. - Goofdog  170.4 #2404 11:42AM
I agree. I don't understand the Avatar plans for Orlando, and I really don't understand (or like) the Marvel plans for Anaheim. Why not build a Disney villians-themed thrill ride park in the same spot instead? - susieQzee  555.8 #366 11:49AM
I love the Disney Villains theme park idea, that would be super sweet!! - Goofdog  170.4 #2404 2:46PM
If they do that, then I have no problem with that. Does that mean a triple hopper ticket? - potatohead25  714.1 #271 4:08PM
I don't know, but if anyone can pull to off its Disney. They did it with star wars and Indiana Jones, why not advengers? I think it would be cool to take my picture with capitan America - werer123  4.3 #21977 12:36PM
I agree! - Melody_CM  13474.2 #3 12:43PM
I personally am really excited about marvel coming to Disneyland. These two franchises have always been very special to me and I'm excited to see them come together. If anyone can bring Stan Lee's amazing stories to life everyday it's Disney. - lostgirl7988  697.8 #279 12:44PM
BOOOOOOO!!!! On the surface it seems like a bad idea, but they usually get things right, we'll have to wait and see - ddmansprty  298.6 #927 12:49PM
I remember my mom told me tht several disney fans weren't too happy about star wars or Indiana jones joining the park n look at it now!! They are big hits! Who know maybe in the end it will be the next star wars/Indiana jones - Penguinn_CM  188.2 #2146 12:55PM
Im ok with the marvel park, just nit in DL. If they redo some rides, it needs to be more Dl related.they need to balance the parks no that more visitors are going to. We shall see - SulleyInc  85.4 #3833 2:30PM
If the avengers ride is anything like the transformers or Spiderman ride, then I'll be okay with it. - SorcererD91  2905.9 #45 2:57PM
