Disneyland bets big on 'completely immersive' super-hero attractions

Avengers attractions are coming to Disneyland parks around the world

Disney Parks to Add Marvel Superhero-Themed Lands Starting in 2020

This area will include experiences featuring Spider-Man and the Avengers.

The California Adventure attraction will become a "completely immersive Super Hero universe", anchored by "Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT!" in the space now occupied by the kiddie attraction "A Bug's Land".

A sneak peek video was released on the blog on Tuesday.

Because of a licensing agreement with Universal for its Islands of Adventure in Orlando, Florida, that predates its purchase of Marvel, Disney doesn't have the rights to the Marvel Comics superheroes east of the Mississippi.

At Disneyland Resort, a separate Super Hero-themed land is in the works, featuring attractions centered around the Guardians of the Galaxy, the rebooted Spider-Man, as well as the OG Avengers. Disney said the new attractions have been developed in partnership with Marvel Studios and Marvel Themed Entertainment. California Adventure already is the home of the "Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT!" attraction.

The other, known as Key Resolve, will involve about 12,200 USA troops and about 10,000 from South Korea . North Korea considers the exercises an invasion rehearsal and often conducts weapons tests in protest.

Over at Disneyland Paris, the new Marvel-themed land is going to be built inside of Disney Studios Park. The land will replace what is now "a bug's land" - "It's Tough to Be a Bug" closed on March 19 and the remainder of the land will close late this summer to allow for construction to begin.

The super-hero attraction is expected to replace the "bug's land" area inspired by the 1998 Disney/Pixar film "A Bug's Life".

This will come after the launch of a new experience this summer, when Disneyland Paris hosts the Marvel Summer of Super Heroes from June 10-Sept. 30.

In addition to the additions coming to California Adventure, Disney is also planning on re-theming the Rock 'N Roller Coaster in Disneyland Paris as an Avengers attraction as well as an Ant-Man attraction in Hong Kong.
