At present on the D23 Expo, Josh D’Amaro, the good-looking chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Merchandise, led visitors on a tour of the way forward for the Disney Parks. In the course of the prolonged presentation, a number of new “Frozen” lands being constructed on the worldwide parks had been detailed, an announcement was made a few forthcoming Disney Cruise Line ship and potential expansions of Disney’s Animal Kingdom and the Magic Kingdom had been fuzzily alluded to. However one factor that appears very concrete and will likely be coming sooner quite than later to Disney California Journey, a part of the Disneyland resort in Anaheim, California, is a brand new Avengers attraction themed round that pesky multiverse.
When the Avengers Campus was initially introduced, there have been plans for a 3rd attraction (to affix Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout and WEB Slingers). This attraction was to be based mostly round an journey the Avengers go on to Wakanda. On the time, “Black Panther” was the most important Marvel Cinematic Universe film and there appeared to be many extra installments that the attraction may draw from. This was, in fact, earlier than the premature passing of Chadwick Boseman, the surprising shutdown of the park as a result of pandemic and earlier than the introduction of the multiverse, which can have a presence in every thing from “Loki” to future Avengers motion pictures.
On Friday, throughout the Disney Legends panel, Bob Chapek first introduced the brand new attraction. Now, we have now some extra particulars.
D’Amaro was joined on stage by Kevin Feige, who in addition to producing the entire Marvel Studios motion pictures and being the president of Marvel Studios, is likely one of the world’s greatest Disney Parks geeks. He often wears hats emblazoned with Disney Parks icons and his workplace has a scale duplicate of Disneyland that needs to be seen to be believed. Collectively, one of many massive improvements of Avengers Campus has been new characters strolling round, nearly after each new Marvel Studios venture. Visitors go see the film or watch the present after which can instantly hug the characters. It’s been fairly superb.
“This has all the time been our imaginative and prescient for Avengers Campus – we would like extra tales, we would like extra heroes, extra villains and we would like extra land to play with too. You spun followers right into a frenzy this summer time if you introduced the Multiverse Saga of movies,” D’Amaro stated. “And then you definately gave us much more superb intel yesterday. That’s why I’m pondering we should always give our D23 followers a preview for our plans to the park. Now we’re bringing the Multiverse to Avengers Campus. Now working along with your group, Imagineers have provide you with an idea that’s totally new.”
“The enjoyable factor about Marvel is the characters,” Feige agreed. “On this new attraction, you’re going to have the ability to battle alongside the entire Avengers towards the entire villains. And also you’re going to fulfill a brand new character known as King Thanos. It is a Thanos that gained. And the Avengers are usually not too comfortable about that. And you must assist them.”
Idea artwork was then shared of a mess of heroes (together with Moon Knight, Physician Unusual, Spider-Man, Thor, Daredevil, Captain Carter, She-Hulk and Werewolf by Night time) dealing with off towards a brand new model of Thanos, with an enormous white beard, an enormous spiky crown and much more angle.
No timetable for the brand new attraction has been given and a reputation has but to be finalized. However allow us to hope that we get to expertise this attraction sooner quite than later. It seems just like the Avengers may use our assist.
