  • [Idea] The Avengers: Super Heroes In Motion



    Due to the phenomenal popularity of Disney's Avengers flick (it's slammin' profits, and super sequel in evelopment), I think it highly likely that Disney will work past any current contract disputes between it and universal over liscencing. I think suits and Imagineering creatives alike can't help but be dreaming about the prospect of creating a mega e-ticket based on it's runaway hit.



    It wouldn't surprise me if WDC is contemplating creating a mega e-ticket that would utilize similar technologies as that used in Universal Studios' Spiderman, Transformers and Forbidden Journey rides. I'm thinking that suvh a ride would be a great addition to Tomorrowland.



    As super heroes utilize fantastic powers that some (such as me) consider futuristic in nature, it would be a good addition. I'm thinking that it could replace both Captain EO/HISTA and what used to be the buildng containg the queue to Astro Orbitors. (which includes the former Circle-Vision theater) The ride could travel between the buildings (rebuilt buildinhs) underground and/or overhead.

    If it is going to be something on that big of a scale, I would like to see an epic dark ride on the scale of Pirates showing the history of the team. They could start with the founding of the team by Iron Man, Thor, Ant-Man, the Wasp, and Hulk. Then move on to finding Captain America frozen in ice. The finale could be one of their classic storylines like the creation of Ultron. Each moment of history would be retold through stae-of-the-art animatronics.

      This sounds like a fun idea! When I saw the Avengers film with my friend and his family, his young son recognized Chris Evans from his previous Captain America film right away. His recognition of the characters histery made the current film much more meaningful to him.

        Any ride would be based off the film properties, not the comics. As such, they would not include characters not yet seen on film (Ant-Man, Wasp, Ultron). Interesting idea, and it could still work but it would have to follow the films.

          It wouldn't have to follow the films. Disney owns more than just the film rights. These are all Disney characters and they also have a successful Avengers cartoon that includes other characters not in the film. They could use any version of the characters that they want. Whether they will or not is another matter. To do the property justice, they should go to the source material.

            I like Disney's current formula of familiarizing the public with major characters by having them star in their own film(s) first.

            True. Disney can add new heroes to the next Avengers film in what ever fashion it chooses. However, I think it has demonstrated that it prefers a proving ground to get an idea of their commercial potential in essentially human interaction, live-action films. Your idea of an epic dark ride comparable to Pirates is quite exciting.

              Re: The Avengers: Super Heroes In Motion

              I want to see a ride based...kinda off the films but allow characters like Spiderman..Antman...Black Panther etc to be able to be in the ride (or added later)

              I think they would need at least Downy Jr as Ironman to REALLY gain interest while the rest of the crew would be nice....they are not as big as his character and could get other actors to play them...if price becomes an issue

              I really...really hope a ride based off the first movie is not made because they are still missing many Big members of the group
              Happy Halloween!!!

                I'd like to see them add an Avenger's attraction, but I don't think that the location you suggest makes any sense. I expect it to use most of the Innovations and Autopia space.

                  As intensly exciting as the first film is, one with more big characters would pack even more of a punch. Tat said, I do not se the actors that play Capn America, Thor and Hulk as beingeasily replaced. I am definately down with Downy as being one of he finest and most likeable actors of the day. Spiderman, Antman and Black Panther would be great additions to the next Avengers film. One would hope that Disney would introduce them each in a film prior to that.

                  I have an idea that perhaps an Avengers ride that featues different super hero characters each time would make each adventure more unique. Onee would be kept on edge never knowing wha to expect in terms of good guys/gals and villains.

                  The Innoventions and Autopia apace would yield plenty of area for the attraction. I would celebrate Innoventios demise, and would miss the Autopia bumper cars much.

                      I got an Idea how about not adding anything of Avengers or Marvel in Disneyland. Marvel doesn't belong in a Disney bizness I do not sopost Disney buying Marvel I think it was a big mistake. Let Lego Land or Knotts Berry Farm have it. I wish Disney well sale the licensens to someone else.

                          Ya, that roughly 1.5 billion that the Avengers has pulled in shows exactly what a bad business decision buying Marvel was...

                            My vote is to keep Marvel characters completely out of Disney's domestic theme parks.

                            3rd gate only.

                            designed to appeal to everyone."

                              I have said it many times in other threads but they need to be in a different park. Something like IOA in Orlando would be needed. That layout is pretty decent. only it would be Disney properties. My wish list includes marvel there and Halloweentown. Carsland would have fit in my park also but too late for that

                                  Does this mean that you are against any domestic themepark attraction, unless it is a part of a third gate? I am certainly among those in heavy anticipation of a third gate for DLR.

                                  That's the enterprising spirit, calsig. Nothing makes more $en$e than an attraction based on a movie that has a quality story/charaters/effects that attract popularity and profits that won't quit.

                                  Indeed. Marvel represents a genra just a fresh and exciting as Star Tours and Indiana Jones when they first appeard at the park.

                                      I for one anxiously awate USH's Potterland. But, I think Bob is steering us right with his comments as to the unique brand of awesomeness that Cars Land revs up and exudes. )

                                        Well actually I enjoyed it before Harry potter a lot. Now it's even better, but that's not what I said at all in my post. I just like the layout and didn't say it was better than a Disney park. A Disney version here would pretty much be awesome. DCA is a horrible layout let's be honest. Traversing it is awkward and reminds me of a Tetris piece.
