AVENGERS ASSEMBLE! Disney Confirms 2021 Campus Opening
Last week, Disney confirmed that Marvel’s Avengers Campus will debut in 2021.
Excelsior! Disney has finally set an opening date for the new super hero land coming to the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. According to the Orange County Register’s D23 Fan Club, Marvel’s Avengers Campus will open in 2021 at Disney California Adventure. Finally, the youngest agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and S.W.O.R.D. will be able to train with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, while the oldest agents enjoy a nice cup of…well, something science-y that was whipped up in Pym’s Kitchen.
Marvel’s Avengers Campus
First announced in 2017, Avengers Campus was supposed to open on July 18, 2020, with the official date set just a few days before the Disneyland Resort was forced to close in mid-March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. And until now, the opening date for the Marvel-themed land had been pushed back to an indefinite “coming soon.”
The land will include Avengers Headquarters where fans will (hopefully) get to meet their favorite heroes, including Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Iron Man, Thor, Spider-Man, Groot, and so many more. Avengers Headquarters – which is located near Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout – will serve as the main entrance for the land.
More details about Marvel’s Avengers Campus have been trickling-in over the last couple months because of the pandemic delays in the park’s opening, so please read on with the latest announcements out of DCA. Well, if you are ready to go further, faster, and higher next fall!
DCA’s Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man
At the D23 event last year, it was revealed that Spider-Man was going to be a prominent part of the new Marvel-themed land. When the announcement was made, it was in the wake of the failed negotiations between Marvel Studios and Sony, and it was unclear if Spider-Man was going to remain in the MCU. Luckily, however, a deal was eventually worked out – after some desperate calls from the Webbed Wonder, Tom Holland, himself.
So it was exciting, when in March, it was revealed that Holland would be voicing Spider-Man for the attraction, Web Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure. The attraction is described as family-focused and comparable to a video game built on communal gesture controls (which sounds similar to the Toy Story attractions if you ask me).
Additionally, it was announced that Spider-Man and Iron Man will team-up once again on Avengers Campus.
Disney said the park would debut a brand new Iron Man suit when the land opened: the Mark 80. Of course, the Mark 80 means, that unlike Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the Marvel-themed land will not be continuity with the rest of the story. Apparently, Marvel and Disney want to give guests an opportunity to see characters who died in Avengers: Endgame, so this year, it was announced that the attraction is set in a world where the Thanos snap never happened.
