So if they wanted to they could use it in DCA maybe hollywood backlot or the possibility of a new land in a possible third gate.



    Disney can not force or cancell the contract unless they find a loophole but they could buy off the contract and pay universal. This would only happen if they think that they could generate more money off the characters over the cost of the contract. Now if i remember correctly the contract that universal has with Marvel only allows them to use the characters already represented withint he park. If and when they consider doing major alterations with the attractions they will have to renegotaite with Marvel/Disney. the only way they could add any new attraction is if they a;ready had predetermined ideas in the design phase. This goes for attractions, retail and eateieres with Marvel themes of the characters they do use.
    I believe their current contract expires in 2012 which by then they would have to renegotiate a new contract with Disney. At that point Disney could play hardball and charge prime rates forcing universal to abondoned some concepts if they feel that the price is too high. This already happened at universal hollywood where contracts for walk around characters were not renewed
    Iwould opt for a new land at the coming third theme park at Dineyland Resort. 2012 seems to me to be the perfect year for Disney to seize control of universal's marvel contracts. With some hopefully good economic news, Disney should be opening Cars Land then, and getting ready to begin DCA Phase II... plus ... hopefully, the long officially announce plans for the long awaited theme park 3.
