    I'm guessing that's it after a google search for DLR55th
    "Up" is a relative concept. It has no intrinsic value.

    Universal has the exclusive, perpetual theme park rights to any Marvel character and his "family" that is used in more than an "incidental" manner on Marvel Super Hero Island. Disney would be in breach of the contract if they tried to use any of those characters at Walt Disney World.

    The contract is actually an easy read.

    I guess I would be ok with this, IF, A) it fits the theme of Tomorrowland (not sci-fi land, tomorrowland, there is a difference), B) they don't plaster the Marvel characters all over the building the way it is in IOA, that just looks way too tacky to me.

    So, if DLR 55th is being accurate, it appears there wont be an avengers attraction, but an attraction for one of the avengers. Sounds like Thor if he was researching in New Mexico

    Re: Avengers Attraction Rumor off another site.

    I wonder if this is just more Stark Expo rumor. While it is Ironman related, it is not an Ironman attraction.

    Well if it is related to Iron Man and only Tony Stark was in there, people would be asking, "Where's Iron Man?" You would think Disney wou;d want to market the Iron Man brand.

    Whatever the case, I hope it involves either completely new ride tech not done before or something involving Pandora's Box or something. I think that would be cool.

    Re: Avengers Attraction Rumor off another site.

    This is confusing...this poster previously hinted this big attraction would be for Tomorrowland but then why the research in New Mexico? I'm Marvel ignorant so maybe I'm not getting it. I hope it's something Marvel related for Tomorrowland and not Frontierland. I was really hoping for something more cowboy and indians (Lone Ranger lol) for Frontierland.

    Western River Expedition will never happen lol it's ALWAYS being brought up and I just can never see it happening in this day and age.

    Of all the recent Marvel blockbusters. The only one I want/can see fitting in Tomorrowland is Ironman. That would be a massive hit for Disneyland.

    Re: Avengers Attraction Rumor off another site.

    I'm guessing that the "research" he was doing in New Mexico may have had something to do with testing something. Disney is known for testing new technologies in deserts; Remember... Dreams Come True was developed in China's Gobi Desert and Tink's cable system was tested in the Nevada desert.

    He also said footage of his "research" may be shown at the Expo. Well if they make the announcement for this project, chances are they may show a clip of the testing that occurred.

    I have a feeling that an IronMan attraction is replacing Innoventions in the very near future and this "research" in New Mexico was just to see and determine that a new technology, developed by Disney, will help bring the experience to life.

    Re: Avengers Attraction Rumor off another site.

    That sounds good just seems kinda not well known to non Marvel fans lol. I just have more of a connection to The Lone Ranger and I know Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer is doing a Lone Ranger movie set to be in theaters next Dec. Like I said I am self admitting Marvel ignorance. It's never really been my thing but I'm not against it at all. I actually enjoyed Iron Man a lot and am really excited to see Captain America (I love WWII period movies). I would just rather see Marvel in Tomorrowland as the more well known parts of the franchise (like Iron Man) just fit better there. Still hope the rumors are pointing for something in Tomorrowland. Plus I remember Al once mentioning the potential Frontierland addition wouldn't be movie related.

    Why not? Didn't TLM cost the same as what the estimated cost for Western River Expedition would have been?

    Also regarding the research in New Mexico, I think that's where the Avengers are being film right now. So maybe he was at the filming site?

    Most likely the Marvel attraction that's being rumored is the Stark Expo replacing Innovations. Personally, I can't see any downside to that rumor, as long as they don't make the exterior all tacky like Universal did.

    It's not the price that's problem (plus those estimated cost for WRE were back in the 70's, it would be MUCH more now) more the type of attraction it is. I'm not saying it never will, I can just never see it happening. The material in the attraction was borderline racist with the way they portrayed Native Americans and that is not ok in this PC day of age. The size of it is something to consider and it's similarities to PotC (remember WRE would have been MK's pirates type ride). Plus it's AA filled attraction with no movie tie in. Again not saying it never will but I would say it's 99% possible it never will lol
