Disney is getting ready to work on the next major expansion of its theme parks.
This time everything will be centered around Marvel comics dedicated to superheroes. So far, little is known about the filling of the parks. It is reported about shopping areas, places to meet with your favorite characters and themed attractions. But with over $14 million invested in the project, it's safe to assume that fans of Marvel's superheroes will have a lot to look forward to, not just a bunch of themed stores. There have already been suggestions on the Internet that a full-fledged Marvel Land awaits us.
The first superhero park will open in California. How it will be officially called and the exact opening date is still unknown. The fact is that, according to some previously concluded license agreements, Disney company does not have the right to use the word "Marvel" in her creations despite owning Marvel Comics since 2009. Also, Disney is not allowed to use certain Marvel characters in theme parks east of the Mississippi.
Full details are expected to be made available during the D23 conference that Disney is hosting this August. It then plans to open similar ride zones in Florida at Epcot Park in 2021, Paris in 2020 and Hong Kong Disneyland in 2023.
Meanwhile, in California, construction is already in full swing, sites are being cleared for new attractions.
