With the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge now complete on the West Coast, Disney is setting their focus on their next expansion. A new superhero-themed land will open in Disney California Adventure Park sometime next year. This is going to be a must-do for Marvel fans who’ve been waiting to see their favorite characters get their spotlight in the parks.
Permits filed just this week show expansion of the former “a bug’s land” area of the park to add a new Spiderman attraction, new retail space, bathrooms, character meet-and-greet areas, and a microbrewery/restaurant. A bug’s land closed in September 2018 and demolition & construction have been happening behind the Stark Industries temporary wall ever since.
Similar Superhero-themed lands are in the works for Hong Kong Disneyland and Walt Disney Studios Park in Disneyland Paris. These three lands will come together to form the “Avengers Initiative“, creating three continental headquarters to recruit guest to become superheroes.
Disney has not announced a name for the new superhero-themed land. We know the theme park name cannot include “Marvel” because of licensing deals that were signed before Disney bought Marvel. More details should be released at the upcoming D23 celebration this August – so stay tuned!
Which Marvel characters would you like to see highlighted in this new land? What do you think they will name it?
