Marvel Marvel Characters To Appear At Disney Theme Parks

Do you remember that little news story last fall about some kiddie-friendly corporation called Disney buying the rights to Marvel, some sort of obscure entertainment body?

Well, one of the many big questions on most everybody’s mind after that financial dealing was how the citizens of the Marvel universe would fit into the world of Mickey Mouse and friends.  Well, according to Walt Disney Company president/CEO Bob Iger, characters from the Fantastic Four could be just a few of the superheroes walking around the next time you visit one of the Mouse House’s amusement parks.

L.A. Times contributor Geoff Boucher caught up with Iger during a premiere event at Disney’s California Adventure theme park – which is right next to Disneyland – and got the following bit of information out of the top executive:

“We’re just now considering all of our different options, so it would be premature to say when or where in the parks you would see Marvel characters — but I think it’s safe to say that you’re going to see some  of those great Marvel characters walking around in the future.”

While only certain Marvel characters will probably be around the next time you visit, say, the Magic Kingdom in Florida, you can definitely count on running into some of the big names like Captain America, Spider-Man, Iron Man, the X-Men, and Hulk – especially around the time their respective movies arrive in theaters.  Personally, I hope Howard the Duck puts in an appearance, if only to watch he and Donald duke it out for the title of dominant bird.

  5. This might happen in one of the China parks but it’s not going to happen in the US, Europe or Japan. At least not anytime soon. Maybe in 10 years and even that is overly optimistic.

    • There is a Disney park in California.

      Would love to see an Iron Man ride, though.

  8. I hope we never see them see any marvel characters in disney parks. Simply because disney characters have their own magic and charm and if you inject marvel characters into that it will just ruin the whole Disney atmosphere we all feel when visiting disney parks!
