    Regardless, I think you missed the point of the sarcasm--to critique this move solely on the basis of movie branding is ironic given that even Sleeping Beauty Castle was named so to help promote the movie.
    None of the Marvel films are being made by the Studio. They just have the Disney logo at the front. Marvel films are produced by Marvel Ent. Disney just takes the money.......

    Re: Thor coming to disneyland!

    Here is one thing to remember Marvel is owned by Disney. Means they can use them in the park with no issues as far as I am concerned. If we were only limited to what Walt made we would have a stale park IMO. The mix between the properties I believe is very good. And recent editions by Disney world wide are well themed so why would they make something totally lame for Thor?

    Marvel characters have lots of back storys that lend themselves to lots of theme. I can't imagine why anyone would be against them existing in the Disney park. The placement of Thor I believe could be in Innoventions where they have the Stark exhibit. They could even leave the theme. He could be visiting Stark's house or whatever they want. Thor can pretty much exist anywhere as he comes from another realm and visits earth and last time I checked Disneyland is on earth. Am I the only one who thinks that it's ok to have Marvel characters here? I don't get the hostility towards the Disney property. I am sure Thor will be a great hit for kids of all ages I can't wat to see him!

    I think it's ok to have Marvel in Disneyland, as long as it makes sense.

    Still fuzzy on the point you are trying to make: I gather you are ok with "movie branding" in the parks, as long as it was made by Disney Studios. So guessing you're really looking forward to the Lone Ranger and Oz rides?

    Re: Thor coming to disneyland!

    I think something Lone Ranger-ish woulda been fine in FRONTIERland. Do I agree w/ Johnny Depp in Pirates, Pirates on TSI and Disney's OWN characters in Small World and toons in TL? NO. Cause They DONT belong there and do not enchance or strengthen said attractions/lands. Thor is from friggin outer space, from a planet w/ a Norse thing going on and he is Marvel. Ya know Marvel? Which really didn't take off with comics till 1962 by doing MODERN CURRENT themes, in MODERN cities? Does NOT belong in TWDC at all.

    If it's in Innoventions and is of the quality of the Iron Man display I don't see it as being invasive at all. Does it fit thematically? Of course it doesn't. But it does serve to further Disney's business and gives fans the opportunity to meet Thor. The only people coming out at a loss are those who are upset and against it, which ultimately isn't going to change anything.

    Lastly. I can't wait to see the "thought I'd see actual Thor suit, feel ripped off" threads that come out after it opens to the public. The Iron Man 3 ones were really entertaining.

    Re: Thor coming to disneyland!

    I'm ok with this but no surprise who won't be happy. Sorry folks the Disneyland you once knew is gone, yes yes originality is dead this wouldn't happen if walt was alive and, please save for a 3rd gate.

    Marvel was coming sooner or later and well...to bring up a counter point, despite everyone saying that there needs to be things that are new, how many things are TRULY new in this day and age that aren't based off of something from a Book, Story, TV show, Game, Movie, Comic/Graphic Novel, Radio show? everything originates from something and so long as it's done well, what's the big deal? I still feel like people who cry foul will still grumble as they fork over money to get it.

    ok now that that is out of the way, I for one welcome our new Norse God! And Natalie Portman as well...oh yes!

    ...As I see it

    Re: Thor coming to disneyland!

    I have an idea. How about everyone who has a problem with it....simply doesnt go see it. I know, that idea is pretty revolutionary. But there is plenty of park that wont have Thor in it. Just a thought. He wont be there forever.
