    It's Saturday now, day two of D23 Expo. It has been widely rumored since 2015 that a "Marvel Land" is coming to DCA. The Miceage Updates of the last couple years have been all over this, but our pal @GiveMeTheMusic has also been very helpful with this developing story.

    Also, the TDA brain trust tried to make this go "viral" by staging a bizarre faux hazmat cleanup at a media party, and then leaving an ugly manhole cover in a planter after Mission: BREAKOUT! opened last month. Because nothing says viral like a trying-too-hard corporate marketing campaign. :rolleyes:

    Supposedly, allegedly, perhaps, they will announce a Marvel Land or some sort of Marvel expansion for DCA during Saturday afternoon's Parks Presentation. Will it be a full land? Will it be a dark ride in the Bugs 3D theater space? Will it be a high tech Avengers coaster? Will TDA let the Horticulture Department take that ugly manhole cover out of the planter? Or some combination of those things?

    This can be the thread to discuss this issue. If we get an official name other than "Marvel Land" on Saturday we can fix the thread title. (I'm rooting for "Marvel: California's Edge")

    But for now, this is the place for Saturday's discussion of whatever Marvel is doing at DCA next. A reminder that the Parks Presentation begins at 3:00 PM on Saturday, is scheduled to last 90 minutes, and will likely be Periscoped and live Tweeted and whatever else the kids are doing nowadays by a gazillion fans.

    Nope, not yet. Something for DHS was just announced, so I'd like to bet something for Disneyland is next.

    My guess is that they're going to end with Marvel.

    Just a generic "Expect to see Spider Man and the Avengers at DCA" and nothing more. :banghead:

    It's almost as if they still don't know what exactly they're gonna do.

    Let's see what happens at Comic-Con next week. I'm betting we'll see a surprise or two...

    I was about to say the same exact thing. Comic-Con could very well hold the things we're looking for when it comes to this project.

    I've been saying for awhile now that Comic-Con will be where they announce all things Marvel. It started last year when they announced GotG at Comic-Con.

    So let's hope they continue and announce something more next week.

    It makes sense to save marvel at dca for comicon. They announced a lot today.
