Somehow through the frenzy of media coverage at the opening of Disneyland’s newest attraction “Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission : Breakout!“, something big was missed. Thursday night during the celebration a mysterious hatch appeared. The Avengers “A” adorning the top of it. This unaccounted for Avenger’s hatch is located just outside the gates of the Collector’s Fortress. With no official word from Disney on where it came from or what its purpose is.
One hint that this is something bigger than mere decoration comes from a tweet by Ryan Penagos, Marvel Digital Media’s Vice President and Executive Editor:

The Story Gets Stranger
That same night reports of workers in orange hazmat suits were seen going in an out of a tent in the same area as the hatch. Two security guards with Avengers logos on their black uniforms were stationed outside the tent to keep people away. The Avenger’s black jeep that Black Widow patrols through the park, was seen behind the building too. Many tie these events to Disney’s attempt to go viral with this scene. Unfortunately none of numerous media outlets picked up on it that evening.
Take a look at this video that was taken during the media event:
So What Does This All Mean?
Officially we don’t know yet. But we can make some pretty good assumptions. There have been many rumors floating around that the new attraction “Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission : Breakout!” could be a gateway to a Marvel expansion at Disney California Adventure. Space-wise there is a parking lot directly behind the new Guardians attraction that could be used. Also, in 2015 Disney did purchase an additional 14.7 acres of property not far from the new attraction. Could this be the real reason why?
At this point its all speculation. But, Bob Chapek, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts chairman, was definitely hinting at something Thursday night when he stated, “This is a momentous occasion, but it’s just the beginning of what will become an even bigger superhero presence at Disney California Adventure. With the strong partnership between Marvel and Walt Disney Imagineering, we’re very excited with what’s to come. And it is sure to please Marvel fans hungry for more magic at Disney parks.”
Is anyone else thinking we’ll hear something interesting at the D23 Expo this year?
