    Does Marvel belong in the parks?

    Now that Disney owns Marvel do you think they should bring it to the parks not just in merchandise but in rides?
    Personally i don't think they belong anywhere on property. Disney is about superheros outside of the incredibles they don't really have very much super heros. When I think of Disney i think of pirates, princes and princesses, and Mickey and the gang.
    So what do you think?

    I hate superheroes. There's nothing interesting about them. I think they are as dumb as professional wrestling. Let universal keep them.

    No, but I'm sure they'll squeeze them in somewhere just like they did with Power Rangers.

    Re: Does Marvel belong in the parks?

    My thoughts exactly! And they fit nowhere in the parks!! Not even MGM or i guess Hollywood Studios!!

    If anywhere, at Hollywood Studios, perhaps as a stunt show. I mean, look how well they've been doing with the Spiderman play here in Manhattan. People are falling head over heels for it... and that's just the actors.

    Perhaps for starters, the Spiderman play can change it's name from "Turn Off The Dark" to a borrowed name from the Disney parks, "Summit Plummit".

    I'm not afraid to admit I LOVE Pro Wresting and Marvel, DC, Image, Dark Horse and all other comic books and Super Heroes....


    There is a reason why Disney spent $4 Billion on Marvel because it represents an untapped market as well as great opportunities for growth within the 5-12 year old boy demographic as well as the 18-35 year old Male market....

    So yes I believe that Marvel belongs in the Parks, specifically Hollywood Studios. For selfish reasons as well as from a business standpoint it makes sense, a company doesn't spend that much money to acquire something and not exploit every aspect of it for a return on investment. Like I said from a selfish standpoint I love Disney and I love Marvel so to have both in one place would be a complete geek out for me

    Disney could even have a yearly event incorporating the Heroes within the World Showcase...Similar to Food and Wine Festival, they could create an event with the Super Heroes of the World for example Captain America/Spider Man/Iron Man in the American Pavilion, Thor in Norway, Wolverine in Canada, Captain Britain/Lionheart in UK, Peregrine in France, Storm in Morocco, Sunfire in Japan, Shang-Chi/Collective Man in China, can't think of a Hero from Mexico but those are just off the top of my head I am sure there are way more for each Country.....

    Just my opinion

    Apparently... allegedly... management at UO have already held a contingency meeting with Universal Creative over this very issue...

    well if for some reason the do come to the park (which i hope they never do!) i hope it is in something small like i don't know just a little out of the way area no one will ever find to do meet and greets.

    I vote yes, but they only need to be a MGM (hollywood studios), I think it would bring in more crowds that don't like Disney.

    No. When I think of Disney, in no shape or form does Marvel pop into my head.
