Disney Aims to Bring The Avengers to Theme Parks

According to Reuters, Disney Park’s head Tom Staggs has confirmed Disney’s renewed efforts to bring characters and attractions fromĀ The Avengers to Disney’s California and international theme parks, following $1.3 billion global box office success of the franchise film.

“We were hard at work on attractions using Marvel characters previously, and that work has only intensified given (the film’s) great success,” said Staggs.

A recentĀ 12-acre Cars Land at California Adventure with over $1 billion in changes and additions hopes to boost the flagging theme park sales, which have dipped in the last decade. They were once the company’s most profitable unit, but have slid in the last few financial quarters.

The aim would be to bring The Avengers to the Disney Resort in California, along with parks in Tokyo, Paris and Hong Kong. Disney World in Florida is contractually forbidden from doing so, due to the licencing restrictions from the nearby Universal Studios.

The Avengers were last seen in the theme parks on monorails, just prior to the release of the film.
