    What is Marvel land? How would it look? Like that Marvel Island in IOA? Sure hope not.

    One thing is for sure... if it´s in HKDL... this land will only have one ride.

    ^Well Marvel Island didn't have to fit the Disney image, whereas 'Marvel Land', you would hope, would have at the very least a bit more thematic detail.

    It'd be a shame if they did just have one attraction, and even if its a great one we'd all want more. And then there's the argument that a Marvel land (with multiple attractions) would be better suited for a second gate.

    If they do add this to HKDL, I'd hope they let them have some exclusives over SDL.

    Of course it will be different from IOA's Marvel Superhero Island. WDI is smart enough to do things differently to avoid comparison, whether favourably or unfavourably.

    Al Lutz previously mentioned an Iron Man e-ticket planned for Tomorrowland in DL, then they shelved it because they wanted to open a whole new land for Marvel instead, seeing how successful Cars Land has been so far.

    Now Marvel Land is rumoured not just for HKDL, but also Paris (See Disney and more). So there is definitely something on the WDI's drawing boards and WDC thinks positively about it enough to leak the rumours for the 3 parks.

    You can start questioning or judging it when concept art is released.

    INTERESTING! I had a chance to work on the pilot and following shows of The Man From Atlantis, a Marvel Character, back in the 70's. It starred a young Patrick Duffy, picked from a McDonald's commercial, long before Dallas. Man From Atlantis was the first TV show from America that was allowed to be shown in the Peoples Republic of China back in 1980. Seems Marvel Super Hero's would fit right in to the new Shanghai Disneyland. PD

    I'll admit, that's an interesting question. If we were talking WDS, I'd say it'd be a simple New York street façade job, but in HKDL, now that's another story.

    Um, it would be a land all about superheroes, just as Fantasyland is all about fantasy characters and Tomorrowland is all about futuristic sci-fi characters. Why would the theming be any less in Marvel Land?

    The conversion of Innoventions into a Marvel attraction has not been cancelled, but it's not an Iron Man attraction--it's an AVENGER's attraction.

    It's such a relief to finally hear someone say something bad about Marvel Island in IOA. Worst themed area I've ever seen. It's not even themed...it's 'decorated' with a bunch of comic book character cut outs. I can't name a single thing I liked about that area.

    I really think this is why I'm so repelled by Disney adding Marvel to theme parks. Universal did such an awful job with it and I can't see Disney doing anything different with it seeing the way they've shoehorned Pixar into everything lately.

    ORDDU: I have to agree with Timmy and manifest. The whole Marvel universe is so 'plastic' and unappealing all the way around. It would be difficult for anyone to make it into anything appealing because the core source material is just too cold, violent and austere to deserve an attraction anywhere.
