They do belong in the parks because, like it or not, they are now Disney. I agree, they belong in DHS if they are integrated into the parks. I'm very opinionated about what belongs in MK. I think it should be kept for original Disney type attractions and characters, with few exceptions. Pixar, Marvel and the like should be at DHS as much as possible.
The purchase of Marvel was done because most of the movies are profitable and there is a huge untapped market out there in young boys. Pirates will only go so far but Marvel has been around for decades and boys love superheroes. I love superheroes too and I'd wait in line to get an autograph with Captain America and maybe Daredevil.
Absolutely not. They have too much violence to be in a disney park. I mean look at the spiderman ride, half of new york is blown apart when they are done.....there is almost nothing magical about them....
Too much violence? Have you seen the Indiana Jones stunt show? It has Nazis in it. You are getting shot at in the Star Wars ride and Snow White is targeted for elimination in SWSA. Most fairy tales, of which Disney stories are made from, are violent in their orignal form. Comics are no different.
They might be able to fit some characters ( Ironman, X Men ) in Tomorrowland..
I look at it as a reverse I don't want Disney to ruin the Marvel characters as opposed to Marvel Characters ruining my Disney experience....If that makes any sense???
As a comic book fan and Disney fan I wouldn't say they belong in all the parks with the exception of DHS, that seems to be the perfect fit. And in Iron Man 2 there was a Disney connection to it. The Stark Expo was a play on the 1964 World's Fair with music by Richard Sherman.
And to some of you don't be so quick to dismiss comics as kid's stuff. Some of the best stories out there are in comic. It's just another way of telling a story.
Comics are based on the premise of good v. evil and USUALLY good prevails.
What a lot of people dont understand or know is how great some of these stories are. Stan Lee is behind most of the characters. There are great stories told in comics and they are a huge part of American history. I dont see a better fit then Disney and Marvel. No they dont belong in the Magic Kingdom, but DHS absolutely if they arent going to do anything with the Star Wars franchise they need to do something with Marvel. I mean just because Tron is a Disney property does that make it good, NO. When I was growing up I loved Disney, Muppets, Comics(Marvel mostly), and Star Wars. It really brings everything together. Now me and my sons watch Star Wars, read Marvel comics and go to the Marvel movies. We vacation there every year and it would be awesome to get to see those three things al intertwined. Thats just my opinion but change is inevitable and usually good. Ill take Fantasyland expansion over 20,000 leagues any day. Even if it did take 20 years.
It's more than possible many of us don't see them as great stories because to us they aren't.
Nothing personal, I've just never liked comics. Even as a child superheroes were never something I was interested in. I see the Marvel acquisition as another sign that the Disney company isn't as interested in creativity as they once were. Instead of trying to create something original, from the ground up, they simply purchased an established entity.
Like I've said, my feeling is Marvel characters only belong in DHS. I don't want to see Spiderman or Captain America in Spectromagic or see any Marvel Characters in Epcot.
