It’s no secret that Marvel is owned by Disney these days (and if you didn’t know, sorry to be the one to burst that bubble you’ve been in).
Whilst the superheroes of Marvel have been absolutely killing it in the box office, it’s felt like the House of Mouse haven’t necessarily welcomed the spandex-clad warriors into their ranks completely yet.
Until now that is!
If you’ve ever wanted an excuse to go to Disneyland Paris, then this is it!
As confirmed by Disney Parks’ Editorial Content Director Thomas Smith, the heroes of the MCU will have a massive presence at the Paris based theme park during the summer of 2018.
“Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Spider-Man, Star-Lord and Black Widow will appear for the first time at Disneyland Paris in summer 2018 in a special Marvel Summer of Super Heroes season,” wrote Smith.
“Your favorite heroes will be featured in the Walt Disney Studios Park for exciting meet & greets and breathtaking, epic shows.”
Obviously, for any fan of the MCU, this is huge news, but the hype didn’t stop there, as Smith continued, saying;
“But that’s not all for Marvel fans at Disneyland Paris.
Disneyland Paris is also re-imagining from October 2018 one of its Resort Hotels into a universe that would make Tony Stark proud.
Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel will transport guests to the action-packed, inspiring world of Super Heroes including Iron Man, The Avengers, and Spider Man among others, and will open within 2020.”
So, Marvel fans are getting a whole themed season celebration AND a hotel?
It’s like Christmas, birthdays, and Comic-Con all rolled into one right now.
With any luck, your resident Nerd-in-the-Know will be present at next year’s Summer of Super Heroes event, and if so, I’ll provide an in-depth look at the season in full.
