    Marvel Land?

    香港迪士尼將建Marvel land | Blog | This is Mr. B - Yahoo! Blog

    If you scroll to the post dated 20/05/2013 it says something about marvel land. The only thing is its all in Chinese. I tried using google translate but the grammar didn't make sense. Can anyone understand the article and tell us what it's about?

    Re: Marvel Land?

    The second phase of expansion, Marvel Land is set to be completed in 2017.

    This publication understands that the land will feature Iron Man as the primary character, as it is hugely popular in Hong Kong as can be seen recently. The second character maybe either Thor or Captain America, but ultimately the number of characters in the land will depend on HKDL's financial situation, as Disney will be taking royalty fees and licensing fees.

    And this publication understands that the third phase of expansion is also in the works and should be completed in 2019.

    The costs of Marvel Land is over HK$1 billion, all the details are still to be announced because they need to do an exact costing and budget.

    The HK govt announced the Marvel Land in February and the expansion costs will be borne by the park's profits.

    ORDDU: My sisters and I thought this rumor about Marvel Land coming to HKDL was just a rumor and not yet a confirmed fact. We had read that someone within the Hong Kong government got confused and 'leaked' the whole thing before Disney had officially confirmed this idea.

    ORWEN: Didn't this same sort of thing happen when there was also a rumor about Star Tours coming to HKDL?

    ORGOCH: Who cares? We don't plan ta never go see Ping Pong Dizzyland anyways!!!

    I think that as HK govt is the majority shareholder of HKDL, WDC does not really have the power to veto what their larger partner have decided, even though Tom Staggs said it was not a done deal, I think maybe he just wants to keep things under wraps until the final designs are complete.

    After all I don't believe the HK govt will go to WDC and say we want Marvel if it was not among the proposals from WDI.
