    Re: The Gospel of Marvel from the Book of Al Lutz - Save Disneyland

    Both my kids LOVE this video -- the ending with Batman is lame (the video creator has a whole thing with Marvel vs DC so it seemed like he was just throwing it in there - but if you like that sort of thing, you have to see his Deadpool vs Green Lantern!)

    I love my awesome crazy wonderful friends!!

    Re: The Gospel of Marvel from the Book of Al Lutz - Save Disneyland

    I have no problem with Disney building Marvel attractions for Disney parks, even putting one inside Disneyland. Creativity means that you try NEW things, pioneer new frontiers and new concepts. To say that Marvel does not fit in Disneyland is just very narrowminded in my opinion. Why doesnt it? if the Imagineers can make an interesting concept, and fit it so its theme-appropriate into one of its lands, then WHY cant Marvel get an attraction?

    If we had Micechat back in the early 90's before Indiana Jones opened, we all probably would have said the same thing we are currently saying about Marvel, "it doesnt fit Disneyland" .."its not very Disney" etc etc. Give things a CHANCE, trust that the imagineers can come up with an amazing concept for these unique characters that Marvel has. Why close our minds to something that could be great?

    Disneyland is not holy land, its not a museum, to say that Marvel is somehow not "good enough" for it, is just ridiculous in my opinion. The place is about history, imagination, science etc. ..not everything at Disney has to be princesses and pirates, let Disney expand its horizons, because I am sure thats what Walt would have done if he was still alive.

    Just a thought.
    The closest known characters get to being appropriate for Tomorrowland is Howard and Tony Stark, but that relationship is derived from Walt Disney and the original Tomorrowland. So why not just give people an honest, old school Walt Disney approach to Tomorrowland?

    Can I hear an AMEN?!
    Amen! Well said, Dusty. As a longtime Disneyland fan AND Marvel fan, I agree that mixing the two in any one theme park will not work.

    A request: would it be possible to move this thread to the Disneyland forum?

    Absolutely. I probably should have put it here to begin with.

    Re: The Gospel of Marvel from the Book of Al Lutz - Save Disneyland

    If done right I would suoport a ride or a little area in Tomorrowland or DCA. Why Tomorrowland or DCA? I dunno, I guess it feels like the right place to go, much more so than the other areas for sure.

    But Like others have said, a third park in the area would be the best place for it. Disney already has a lot of great properties that are somwhat forgotten, lets showcase them instead.

    Marvel doesn't mesh with Disney at all. At least the Pixar movies "play well" (stolen right out of the text of the OP) with Disney themes, but Marvel is completely different. They certainly need their own park.

    And what about Islands of Adventure at Universal Studios Orland...? They have an entire section there devoted to Marvel Comics. Ughs.
    1. You might be referring to the strawberry fields nearby which is currently the Toy Story Lot. Specualtions are that a 3rd gate could be placed there in the near future and the Toy Story Lot was put there until Disney can (if it's still true) make Pumbaa another parking structure. This 3rd gate could well be a Marvel Theme Park.

    2. Part of the deal when Disney bought Marvel is that they would honor any contracts that Marvel has with Disneys competitors (including Universal), so IOAs Marvel section is unaffected by Disney acquiring Marvel.

    Let me get this straight:

    It's OK to have Star Wars and Indiana Jones in Disneyland...but not Marvel? Does not compute.

    I eagerly await the Stark Expo to replace Innoventions and the thermonuclear backlash that'll cause.

    but but but I wanted to see Mickey in an Iron Man suit... and Donald get angry and turn green with bulging muscles! Or have Goofy shoot webbing out of his hands as he scales the buildings of Main Street Marvel Town!

    I also would have gone with "The Gospel of Lee according to Lutz" as the title... since Stan has taken a prominent stance in bringing the Marvel properties to the big screen (and thereby the purchase from Disney).

    My call on it is this:

    In California, put it In Disney Adventures (California Adventure) and change the name of that park)
    In Florida, either put it in Hollywood Studios, or make a Marvel-themed Thrill Park.

    Never in Disneyland. DCA would be okay. But preferably a third gate.

    I think that there is a way to introduce the characters slowly in Disneyland. I posted the idea on that thread about the princess show in Fantasyland Theatre. Here is an excerpt from that post:

They can put a nice transition between Fantasyland and the "Marvel Theatre" to keep the two separated and not be intrusive on each other's theme. This way, we can have a show with more testosterone that young boys would like to go and see, and maybe meet some of their favorite superheroes after the show.


    As stated above, this area is almost completely isolated from the rest of the park, and with the right theming and transitions can be completely separated from everything. If the overall feeling is then that Marvel fits in well here, it can be expanded. If the feeling generated from fans is that Marvel is not well received, all they need to do is put in a new stage show.

    It would be so cool to see a live action Avengers show, or since Captain America comes out this summer, a show set during WWII featuring the Invaders.

My voice shall be heard from this wilderness and I shall be delivered from this fetid and festering sewer."
