  • What will the Marvel area look like?

    In my opinion, DCA can still utilize the "C" part of its name by making the Marvel area a fantastical "heightened" version of an urban LA-like environment, a City of Heroes, much like how the pier concept is turning into a fantastical Pixar version of a California pier


    Also, do you think one or two more rides are coming to the area in the first phase?

    DCA is obviously transitioning from Disney's Adventure Park ABOUT California to Disney's Adventure Park IN California, so I think that the Marvel Land will eventually consume all of Hollywood Land and the visual theming will be New York in one section and the cosmic side of the Marvel Universe in another. My guess is that this will be done in two or more stages, with the coaster behind GotG:MB being put in first, and then in the next stage, the backlot area will be replaced. I think the Hyperion Theater will remain, but perhaps rethemed to a Broadway theater.

      I don’t think there is enough room where the Hyperion theater is to do this but I’d love to see a marvel stunt show. Similar to (outdoing) the waterworld show at Universal. I think that would be really cool.

        Here's what I would like to see. Where the muppet theater is put the Iron man ride from Disneyland Paris (I think). That whole stretch where Monsters inc. is around the corner all the way to the Hyperion theater put in an Avengers ride using the technology they're using for the Pandora boat ride at Animal Kingdom. (No boat though. Maybe trackless technology) the Hyperion theater wouldn't fit style wise in that area now so I would try to put an outdoor stunt show there ala waterworld stunt show and Universal. If it can't fit there put it across the street where turtle talk and all that stuff is. Or if the rumors are true that the bus stops are going to go away expand the park out there and put it there. Put a Marvel coaster behind GOTG that is floorless and is an indoor and outdoor coaster. Have it slow down inside for a dark ride style animatronic show ala Snow White mine train. As far as theming, do like an industrial Avengers headquarters style. Or a war town New York style. Or both.
        Thats what I'd do if I had the magic wand.

          A marvel stunt show sounds awesome. If only they could get all the Marvel characters across.

          If they could get a spidey character zipping through the street through out the day too that would be great too.

          Gotta say I love the idea of a marvel indoor outdoor coaster.... why arent you guys designing this?
          I don't think imagination is dead. Anywhere or in the parks. I think that sometimes, we need to remember, that when you see something so highly to begin with, and then you visit it or see it every weekend, that shine it once had, it starts to wear. I think, and this isnt meant as an insult or anything rude or whatever, that sometimes, the imagination dies a little in ourselves, as opposed to the thing we are critiquing and its further diminished when it doesn't align with what we think it should align with.

                  Hopefully it will be more impressive than "Marvel Super Hero Island" at Islands of Adventure.

                    With a possible Spider-Man attraction, I would assume we will see a New York-inspired neighborhood. I'd also love to see the globe icon from the Stark Expo somewhere in the land. It would be such a great tribute to the 1964-65 World's Fair. Granted, none of this makes sense within a "California" dubbed park, but it's something to think about.

                    As much as I love the Disney Animation lobby, I can imagine that attraction being bulldozed to make way for a new street that heads directly towards Mission: Breakout! and the new Marvel area. If they did something like this, we could still have a Hollywoodland area that could be the home to new Disney inspired attractions. The Collector's Fortress would make a great "weenie" at the end of the new street which would include much taller building facades. These new facades could also help breakup that jarring new vista from the old Condor Flats area.

                      Can we quote you stating that as a fact, whether or not it turns out to be true?

                        No, because this is a prediction thread. And that's what I'm predicting.

                          So while the Marvel area in DCA will be inspired by the MCU it will exist in its own continuity. So I think it would be great if the Hollywood backlot becomes the Avengers Compound aka The Avengers West Compound in LA. What the hell you do behind MBO I don't know, but I did suggest awhile ago, much like David, that theming that area to Marvel Cosmic CU would be a good idea: Asgard, Ragnarok, or some such place.

                              I would like to see some sort of central building. IF they wanted to keep with any bit of the California theme (which they probably don't), I would think it might make sense to use Tony Stark's house as a focal point. Inside could be a generic Avengers attraction or a "fly with Iron Man" simulator type thing.

                              I don't know. I'm sure it will be better than I expect, but all I can think is meet and greets galore, more paint jobs like GotG, and maybe a themed restaurant with shawarma on the menu.

                                I feel like the backlot will probably be repurposed as a Stark Expo or something to that effect where the Superheros are showing something off and something goes wrong. I could imagine getting at least three attractions out of there especially if they use the former MV3D spot and build a building with two floors which I imagine could fit a simulator ride (a retooled version of the Iron Man experience),the queue, and a gift store in that one tiny spot. And I could see a dark ride and a small indoor coaster fitting in the former backlot. And they could keep the stage and call it a demonstration stage and use the same show.

                                I feel like Hollywoodland will remain the same although I like the suggestion to demolish the Animation building and put a new street through that space maybe call it Kirby St. (after Jack Kirby) or something to that effect and I could imagine having new buildings for animation with one side having a museum dedicated to the art of Disney films and on the second floor have the Drawing Academy and across the street have the main Animation store and a meet and greet spot they could easily change out on the second floor. Move Turtle Talk to Pixar Pier and I think you would have a nice street that would function both as another path to get to Mission Breakout and whatever else they're planning but I don't think it'll happen.

                                  I suspect they'll do the construction in phases.

                                  Phase 1: Start building the E-ticket Avengers ride in the parking lot area behind Guardians. Put a good restaurant in this section, too. (2018-2020)

                                  Phase 2: Shutter Bug's Land and build a Spider-Man themed dark ride for the whole family. Maybe keep one or two of the smaller kid type rides with an Ant-Man theme. (2019-2020)

                                  Phase 3: Shut down the north side of the Hollywood backlot and build at least 2 new rides (one thrill, one dark) and one good sit-down restaurant in the general area of MV3D, Millionaire, Monsters, etc., as well as the current bus/shuttle drop off. Retheme the entire area into the Stark Expo or something along those lines. (2020-2022)

                                  Phase 4: Turn the Animation building into the Hall of Marvel Heroes. (2021-2022). While this is occurring, another inside stage building is being built somewhere in Fantasyland so that the Hyperion can be rethemed and Fantasyland friendly shows like Aladdin and Frozen can move over to Disneyland. The Hyperion can then host Marvel themed shows to fit the rest of the land.

                                  (In addition to this, once Phase 2 of Marvel Land is complete in 2020 you shut down some part of the Fantasyland theater, Autopia, Submarines and Innoventions to build the Tron Cycles, one Tomorrowland dark ride, one Fantasyland dark ride, the new indoor Fantasyland theater, and a significant new Fantasyland themed restaurant. This would all be done in its own phases, of course, from 2020-2024 or so. Personally I'd put the new Fantasyland theater in the space that is currently the west side of Toon Town, retheme the remainder of Toon Town (Roger Rabbit and a new Mickey House just next to it) as just a small section of Fantasyland. This way, since they are unlikely to do a theater show after dark you don't need to worry about the fireworks anymore than you do now, but now the space of the current Fantasyland theater is utilized for a dark ride or a restaurant.)

                                  I have it all planned out, I tells ya!

                                      With Disney investing $2 billion into Epcot alone, it's a safe bet, however, that there won't be a lot of money being dumped into a Marvel land. I really don't expect Marvel land to go in that expansion bad behind Tower of Terror or take over Bug's Land. Just looking at how Mission Breakout was a thinly veiled reskin of a previous attraction, and the same seems to be happening over in Paradise Pier becoming Pixar Pier, Disney doesn't seem to want to invest a whole lot in DCA right now.

                                      Edit: Thinking somethings over, however, with Pixar Pals Theater coming to Paradise Pier, it'll probably become the home of new Pixar movie previews in the park. So then what to do with the struggling Tough to Be a Bug? Perhaps Bugs Land destruction is coming soon. If Marvel land does end up taking over Bugs Land instead of Hollywood Land (I mean, it already kind of has invaded), I suppose that's a better option, but I'm still not sold on the idea of it in general. No matter what they do, I don't think it'll be equal to Avatar or Galaxy's Edge at all, however. Screen based rides like Mission Breakout that lack a Disney feel are very likely. If they're smart, the exteriors of these new attractions will look like they're from the 20's, 30's, and 40's and won't feel overbearing. But if MB is any hint, that won't be the case.

                                        I thought it would have been cool if they had kept Guardians looking like a 1930's building but had alien portals smashed into the ground next to it. These portals would utilize optical illusions to appear as a sci-fi version of a portable hole. So, Hollywoodland is still 1930's, but there's this weird circular object which fell and if you walk through it, you're in an alien world with superheroes.
