Avengers Campus Will Take Place in a World Where Thanos’ Snap Never Happened. Marvel Fans are gearing up for an immersive experience like never before with the opening of the Avengers Campus, coming soon to Disneyland in Anaheim, CA. Recently, some fans have been wondering how characters such as Black Widow, Iron Man, and Captain America will be found in the new land after their departures in Avengers: Endgame.
Cleverly, the Imagineers and story tellers at Disneyland came up with a way for us to meet our favorite heroes, despite the outcome of the films. The team behind Avengers Campus say this is all possible because we live in a “Marvel Multiverse” where Thanos never got to snap his fingers with the Infinity Gauntlet.
“We live in a version of the multiverse where there are some characters who did not sacrifice themselves for us,” noted Avengers Campus story lead Jillian Pagan. Dan Fields had also gone on to say that though the MCU and “our earth” take place in different multiverses of Marvel the hope is for visitors to get an immersive experience without having to face the fear of an apocalyptic event.
“We don’t want anyone to feel that there’s an apocalyptic threat to the end of humanity,” shared Dan Fields, the Executive Creative Director of Disney Parks Live Entertainment. Another reason for the decision is because at the core of the designs for the Avengers Campus is inspiration provided by famed Marvel Character, Tony Stark, aka Iron Man.
It’s no secret that the Avenger gave his life at the end of Avengers: Endgame to save humanity, but the character will be alive and well around the Avengers Campus in Disneyland, even sporting an all new Iron Man suit, the Mark 80!
Scott Drake (Portfolio Creative Executive for Walt Disney Imagineering) and Dan Fields shared insight on how Tony Stark and Iron Man truly are the heart of Avengers Campus.
“Tony Stark has influenced, from design, everything about Avengers Campus. So making sure that we can deliver on Iron Man, this is huge for us to not only deliver on such an iconic character, but designing it again with Ryan Meinerding and making it something that can walk among us, be right there. We’re going to be meeting him daily.”
“This is a Disney Parks exclusive suit from the Iron Man arsenal. This is the Mark 80,” Fields proclaimed. “You will only find it here. And Iron Man will be waiting for you out front every day, in front of Avengers Headquarters for truly awesome heroic encounters.”
Originally the Campus was set to open July 18th, but with the COVID-19 pandemic worldwide, Disneyland and other Disney Parks around the world are currently closed “until further notice”. We can not wait to experience the Avengers Campus when it is up and running in, no matter the wait.
