Disney Hong Kong's "Marvel Land" Unconfirmed
Rumors of a Marvel-themed section of Hong Kong's new Disneyland have just been shot down by Disney Park execs. You may recall that Disney purchased both Lucasfilm and Marvel in recent years, and Disney Parks have yet to take advantage of either one since the acquisitions. The already existent and popular Indiana Jones and Star Wars attractions have been a staple in park history, but Marvel-themed attractions could certainly appeal to children of the new Avengers and Amazing Spider-Man era. Not to mention the upcoming Star Wars films that would make Star Wars more relevant to young fans again. No word yet on Disneyland Resort getting a Marvel treatment, but plans for a Marvel area of Disney Euro have been rumored for years.
