  • [Idea] Marvel Universe Live could replace Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular?

    Ok, if you haven't heard of Marvel Universe Live, it is a live action arena show that had it's first performance here in Tampa.

    I stumbled across a very well shot video of the entire thing on YouTube
    Marvel Universe Live in Tampa - YouTube

    It is awesome! Spiderman, X-Men, and The Avengers! I think it would be really cool if they replaced the Indie stadium at DHS with a small indoor arena and bring this show to Disney!

    What do you think?





    This is just for fun. I know it will never become reality.

    Here's why it will not happen.
    "Disney bought Marvel Comics in 2009 for $4 billion. But years before, Marvel had sold the theme park rights to its characters to Universal Studios. Two years before Disney bought Marvel, Universal opted not to renew those theme park rights for the western half of the United States, and the Marvel characters left Universal Studios Hollywood in at the end of 2007.

    Universal retained the rights for the eastern United States, where it had built Marvel Super Hero Island in its Islands of Adventure theme park in Orlando, as well as for Japan, where Universal's Japanese development partner had built a clone of IOA's Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man ride in Osaka's Universal Studios Japan. (I've not found any public documents that reveal what Universal is paying Disney, or paid Marvel, for these rights.) The theme park rights for Japan are under a long-term deal, said to last into the 2020s, while the Orlando rights are in perpetuity, meaning that Disney never will be able to secure the rights to use its Marvel characters in Walt Disney World's theme parks until it can convince Universal to give up those rights.


    And in the business world, "convince" means to write a very large check or to fork over other capital assets that Universal would want more than to continue to be able to run Marvel Super Hero Island.


    Disney has the rights to bring Marvel characters to Disneyland, Hong Kong Disneyland and Disneyland Paris (or to any other company's theme parks outside the eastern US or Japan), but it can't do anything with those characters inside theme parks in the eastern US or Japan. That's why the Walt Disney World monorail wraps promoting Marvel movies had to stay on the Magic Kingdom line. The Epcot monorail line goes into that park, so if a Marvel character were depicted on those trains, Disney would be in breach of contract with Universal, and liable in what could be a nasty, expensive lawsuit."

    If you watch it to the end of the show, the heroes call on the audience for them to use their "Lectro Link" to help them win the battle.

    It lights up and revives everyone with the power to beat all the bad guys. It's cheesy, it's comic book, it's awesome!

    And WDW already utilizes the light along with the show ears that light up and sync up to Wishes and Fantasmic!, which is pretty much what they do with this show.

          It would be nice but Disney can't use some of those Marvel characters because Universal still owns the theme park rights to them at Islands of Adventure.

              All Disney has to do is fork over a nice big check, and Universal will hand over the theme park rights for the eastern US.

                lol despite the fact that they have an entire land including some of their most popular attractions dedicated to that property right down the street? not a chance. maybe in like 20+years when they would consider redoing the area with a new theme but not any time soon.

                  Does anyone know if the deal extends outside the parks to the rest of the resort? I could see something like this in Disney Springs either alongside or replacing cirque du solei. Maybe as a dinner show like the buffalo bill one in Paris

                    ^Interesting question robbiem. I don't know, to be honest, but you'd think that Uni would have such a loophole all closed.

                    Then again, why would they? Its not like they expected Disney to buy Marvel. Heck none of us did. Perhaps the only indication we have if it only applies inside the parks is if they sell any of the contracted Marvel character merchandise at Downtown Disney.

                      If the money was right, Universal would sell. They don't need Marvel in the park as much as they used to, what with the new WWoHP expansion and all.

                        Universal holds all theme park rights for the Marvel characters in the eastern US and Japan, according to this article:

                        Who really owns the theme park rights to the DC and Marvel comic characters?

                          but the money wouldn't be right unless there was a corresponding remodelling plan in motion for the current marvel island. an expansion of that nature alone is a huge dollar figure that would need to be significantly surpassed for universal to consider the sale.

                            If Disney wanted it, they would buy it. The money would be right. It's Disney.

                              its a business at the end of the day. if they don't see fiscal sense in the deal they won't do it. furthermore if they REALLY wanted it the could have already gotten it in their previous acquisition of the other marvel rights.
