    Why pair him at all? I could imagine him represented somewhere off to the side, putting a Sharpie(tm) marker line through the names on a long list of Disney villains who won't be joining us for this poster.

    Re: Does Marvel belong in the parks?

    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.

    I agree that would be an amazing addition!!! I was a HUGE Punisher:War Journal fan back in the day....He is definitely one character that I hope Disney owning Marvel does not change....For that very reason I hope we never see The Punisher in the parks....I wouldn't mind the already kid oriented characters like Captain America, Iron Man and Spider Man but keep people like Punisher, Moon Knight, Dr Strange and Wolverine out of the parks....

    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???

    I may not be the biggest Marvel (or action hero) fan, but I have to agree...the big fear is that Marvel will bring down Disney, but I know many people who like Marvel and are even more afraid of Disney ruining Marvel...I would hate to see either get tainted because both have quite some history behind them

    And how often at WDW is an entire city blown to pieces by a villian? I dont remember where, in any of the parks, such destruction is present.

    Re: Does Marvel belong in the parks?

    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.

    Not sure on the whole city thing but Bambi's mom was killed by hunters, Cinderella's father died probably via poisoning by Lady Tremane and let's not forget the violence that would have befallen Snow White.

    Comics are based on the premise of good v. evil and USUALLY good prevails.

    Re: Does Marvel belong in the parks?

    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.

    The movies are just an overview of the characters set up for mass consumption. The stories are shortened therefore dumbed down for the public. I know this is a losing argument here, but I think more substance to the supporting theme parks the better. I know its not for every Disney fan, but thats the great thing about disney theres something for everybody.

    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.

    I believe it had been determined that Universal gets to keep the Marvel themed rides and characters that they currently have BUT they are not allowed to add anymore. So characters/attractions from the upcoming Thor movie won't show up at UO but they could, probably won't, show up in WDW. At least a previous post back when this whole thing broke had a link to a report that said so. I'll have to go back and find it.

    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.
