  • [Rumor] Avengers E-Ticket More Dead Than You'd Think

    I don't know if this has been put out there, but I've hear that all the Imagineers that were working on the Avengers E-Ticket project were let go in the layoffs. So it's probably dead and buried, which is a real shame since the ride was very close to construction beginning.

    Unfortunately this will be the case for all projects that were not well into their construction phases. Hopefully once the parks division can recover the ride will be brought back to the table, and (glass half full ) the time spent off the table will allow technology advances create a better ride for us.

      On the plus side, it's probably better for it not to get built right now, since it would probably get slashed down to a shell of its potential due to budget cuts.

      Hopefully this will be kept on the back burner until they can afford to do it right. DCA needs a mind-blowing innovative ride badly. The last thing they need is another hack job like Pixar Pier.

        I'm not a crazy Marvel fan. Maybe I am a dollar store Marvel fan...? (I don't even know what that means. I just know I like Tom Holland.)

        I'm not sure how the diehards would feel about it, but I think waiting to open Avengers Campus until late next year would be a good way to go. Or until 2022. I just can't imagine this land opening next year, and blowing minds, especially when there's a lack of characters and entertainment.

        re: the E-ticket, it's a shame.

          There could be additional reasons for the project getting shelved (if true).

          If Avengers 5 is being planned, it's not likely to happen until 2023 at the earliest. Marvel's film slate has been delayed by an entire year from the epidemic and the renegotiation over Spider-man.

          In addition, Chadwick Boseman's unexpected passing likely affected the ride. Part of the ride was supposed to take place in Wakanda.

            "The Avengers Stand Ready


            The gleaming Quinjet that rests high atop the Avengers Headquarters building is bound to attract attention—maybe even some unwanted attention.

            There are reports that the villain known as Taskmaster is plotting a break-in, and the Avengers are on high alert. Brave Super Heroes like Black Widow, Iron Man, Captain America and Captain Marvel greet new recruits and scan the horizon for potential threats.

            If Taskmaster and his gang of mercenaries do appear, our heroes are ready to defend the Avengers Headquarters, which would surely lead to an action-packed confrontation on the rooftop and all over the building. You’ll definitely want to be there to see what happens.

            Who knows, new recruit, maybe someday you will join the Avengers on their next adventure!"-The Disneyland Avengers Headquarters Attraction page as of Friday, October 23, 2020. No longer mentioning "an adventure to Wakanda...and beyond!" as it once did. My guess is we will get a ride, but maybe not the exact one they had planned.

              There's a villain named Taskmaster?

              What's his superpower? Dumping 3 hours of excel spreadsheet work on you at 4PM on a Friday?

                  Correct me if I am wrong. But if a DLR project is that close, isn't the money already spent? I'm guessing they already "spent" the money for the construction / Imagineers.

                    The Project isn't dead, for sure it might change and not come "soon" but they will build an Avengers ride before 2030 in DCA

                    Considering it was rumored to be in Wakanda but Black Panthers Actor passed away they would need to change members and where it is at most likely anyway
                    My guess is they will wait and use the same tech (and it will be cheaper by then) and use the new Avengers are the cast. Ms Marvel, Falcon (new Captain America), Captain Marvel, Dr Strange, She Hulk, shang chi and so on which will be house hold names by then.
                    Happy Halloween!!!

                      Oh no! This sucks... I was really looking forward to that ride. I'm a big Marvel fan and I thought it was gonna be so fun to go on a ride with all of the heroes!

                        Taskmaster, who will be introduced in Black Widow, has the ability to copy an opponent's fighting movement. Basically the villain is acts like "a mirror" to the heroes (Or like Dark Link in Legend of Zelda).

                        Not necessarily. Money was obviously spent on the development of the project. However, any major ride still has to get greenlit by a certain head honcho(). As no actual construction had started, this project can easily get scrapped.

                          Sure but can also come back. I agree we won't be seeing as soon as before but not way they just don't use the tech or one of the biggest IPs ever...it's not the Disney way

                            I've been reading more from epidemiologists and most of them are saying same thing: the virus will continue to have a major impact until at least 2022, even if a vaccine is released next year. I'm sure Disney is well aware of this reality.

                            If current restrictions see Disneyland closed for at least another year, I'd expect the entire resort to be going into survival mode for the next four years or so. That means no new E tickets like Avengers, no reskins like Splash, no new lands like Tomorrowland. Light entertainment upon reopening, sustained indefinitely. These conditions may not change even if the state eases restrictions.

                            I think Avengers Campus is far enough along for them to just complete it, albeit slowly. MMRR is more of a wildcard...I think continuing construction depends on how much money they've spent already. If it's a lot, they may just get it over with.

                            Also expect the AP program to be completely overhauled.

                            I wonder if the company, in its 65 year history of operating theme parks, did any R&D on pandemics, which have revealed themselves to be an achilles heal.

                            This is all speculation on my part, but I just don't see how the resort will return to status quo for a long time.

                                Yeah I mean think about it.

                                Another new virus can could arrive any day or any month or any year.....and could easily be much more contagious, or even much deadlier.

                                I don't know if this is going to serve as a wake up call for the world's governments on just how vulnerable we still are. Hopefully it will. But I do suspect its eye-opening for companies like Disney, whom are probably forced into taking a hard assessment on how prepared they are for worse plagues, which are all but guaranteed.

                                Could this mean big changes for Disneyland? Historically pandemics have had major impacts on societies even after they come under control, and this may be no different.

                                To circle back to the topic, this may mean they pour money into "pandemic proofing" existing attractions and infrastructure rather than into new attractions over the next decade.

                                    While I agree that TDA will likely reduce money on expenditures, I think it is bit of a stretch to say Disneyland will be closed til 2022.

                                      haven't been around the forums for a bit but I've been feeling bummed with all the people being let go. From what I've gleaned yeah there are no projects and what the world will be when they start work again is anyones guess.

                                      Were I a betting man I'd say maybe 2023 we see Avengers Campus and Mickey co-open MAYBE but I'm curious how they'll really pace out these openings.

                                      Then I'd mostly expect small tweaks and a very slow drive to pull entertainment back together in the following years before we really get to anything like an Avengers ride and at that point different movies could be big and maybe they'd jsut redo the entire campus :\

                                      I mean I was feeling done with some of the trend focusing but on the other hand this was one that looked shiny and I was growing increasingly curious about :P

                                      It does feel like the land would have an empty spot without its eticket though.

                                        Avengers Campus was supposed to open this year. Disney eventually resumed construction during the shut down, meaning it should be almost done. They could have an 'official opening' planned for February 2021, for DCA's 20th.

                                        Mickey & Minnie only broke ground this year. Hence the 2023 date.
