Disneyland Teases Real-Life 'Rogers: The Musical'

February 23, 2023, 12:32 PM · Marvel fans might see another dream come true at the Disneyland Resort this summer. The resort just teased a real-life production of "Rogers: The Musical" at Disney California Adventure's Hyperion Theater.

"Rogers: The Musical" is the campy faux-Broadway show that appeared in the Hawkeye TV series on Disney+. Ever since the scene dropped, many fans have been wishing that Disney would stage this production, in some form, at one of its theme parks.

Now, it's happening. Fans got a taste of the production during the Marvel Studios presentation at last year's D23 Expo, and now Disney Parks has dropped a social media video tease today that all but promised the show at DCA.

In the video snippet, a woman dressed as Agent Carter shows the camera a Playbill-style program for Rogers: The Musical, except that this program is branded "Hyperion," the name of the Broadway-style theater at Disney California Adventure.

The camera zooms out to show her step toward the Hyperion marquee, which then lights up with the words "Coming Soon." And just to beat us over the head with it, the letter "R" in the Hyperion logo is blinking.

A post shared by Disney Parks (@disneyparks)

Disneyland recently posted an audition notice for roles to play in a limited-run musical at the Hyperion, so it appears that Rogers: The Musical may be that production.

As the post said, stay tuned for more details.

Update: A press release from Disney confirms the production, but provided no new details, save for reminding me that in the Hawkeye show, Rogers: The Musical premieres at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre in New York City in 2024. That would make this summer's production at the Hyperion the show's out-of-town preview, wouldn't it?

Okay, this could be wonderfully cheesy fun.

This seems incredibly niche, and while Marvel fans and Disney nerds would love it, it probably won't connect with the GP.

It certainly makes sense to make the Hyperion part of Avengers CAMPUS given its proximity to GotG: MB, but does the Marvel parks universe really need another stage show?

So it's a musical about Captain America, the stodgiest of the marvel people? And the source material is some obscure TV show on Disney's subscription streaming service?

Yeah, I'm sure that will pack 'em in the way Frozen and Aladdin did.

Also, the Hyperion is clearly located in Hollywood--the Roosevelt Hotel sign is on the roof. If it's going to be part of Marvel land, that means they'll need to retrofit it so it, too, looks like its part of an outlet mall.

Okay, so whilst joking at the time, I believe I spoke this into existence lol


Although to be fair “I’m Mary Poppins Y’all: The Musical” probably has the best pitch. That, or “Virtual Queue: The Musical”

I don't think people need to "get the joke" in order to line up for "The Marvel Musical."

At least, I hope that's the case. This does not interest me at all, but it would be great if it sucks people off the streets.

I agree with Jacob. Not getting the reference isn't going to stop guest from seeing the show...and it's not really necessary to know either.

@thecolonel. While the source material may be "Hawkeye", it's just a retelling of the Avengers final battle in the movie. I'm sure it will be promoted on the Disneyland app, maps & the promo material & will be presented as such.

"Join Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk & Thor as they save New York in a rousing musical straight from Broadway" featuring the beloved song "I Can Do This All Day".

Even if you've never seen Hawkeye, Disney is going to give a description of what the show is in their promo & park maps.

Add in locals / pass holders who'll go to experience any & everything new (and imagine the content uploaded) and Marvel fans in general.

This is going to be during the summer, people are always looking to go inside an AC based location where they can sit down. It will get an audience.

I was really hoping for the Hercules rumors to be true.. but I am curious to see how this turns out.
I don't see this having the repeatability that Aladdin had, but then again it seems Disney keeps mentioning limited time in their announcements.
At the end of the day, even though I am not super excited for it, it is better to have something in the theater than nothing at all.
