Marvel Theme Park Universe has celebrated its opening at Hong Kong Disneyland.The next phase of Disney's interconnected
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Nano Battle! opens officially to the public on Sunday, but Disney and Marvel officials joined with star Paul Rudd for an opening ceremony today. Here are the highlights:
After the ceremony, Rudd joined Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, Ant-Man and The Wasp director Peyton Reed, and Hong Kong actress Jessica Hsuan on the ride. Hsuan plays Leslie Lam, the Chief Engineer of the S.H.I.E.L.D. Science & Technology Pavilion, a new Marvel character created for the ride.
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Nano Battle! replaced the old Buzz Lightyear ride, but the vibe, at least in the queue, is far more like Universal's Men in Black: Alien Attack than Disney's cartoonish Buzz Lightyear adventures. Here is the best queue and ride POV video that we've found:
Coupled with the Iron Man Adventure next door, Hong Kong Disneyland's emerging Marvel land is the first of three planned around the world, including Walt Disney Studios Park in Paris and Disney California Adventure in Anaheim. All three will be outposts of Stark Industries and Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. initiative, helping to recruit the next generation of help for the Avengers. (In other words, you.)
