Looks like Marvel is going to Disneyland
Written by Robert Niles
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is featured in the upcoming issue of Disney's fan club magazine, D23. In an excerpt from the piece, Feige talks about his excitement in bringing Marvel characters to the Disney theme parks:Tweet
"The notion of walking into a theme park and going into Asgard or the X-Mansion—Disney does this better than anyone. That is why I've gone to Disney parks multiple times every year for my whole life. It's that next step in fully immersive storytelling, whether it's a dark ride, a stunt show, or a thrill ride. The options are endless when it comes to how Imagineers can turn our characters, our adventures, and our films into amazing experiences."
We've talked before how Marvel's contract with Universal Orlando can keep the characters in that park there indefinitely, and out of Walt Disney World. (Unless the two sides cut a deal.) But the Disneyland Resort is wide open and available to Marvel. Feige's presence in D23 makes it all but assured that a Marvel attraction is coming to a Disney theme park, and that the announcement will be sooner rather than later.
What would you like to see from Marvel, and where?
