Parts of Universal’s backlot remind me of the image I have in my head of what I would expect a Marvel land to look like. I know some scenes from Captain America were shot on Universal’s lot... Too bad they didn’t stick with the same aesthetic.

Does anyone know if there are still plans to move forward with the Avengers E-Ticket? Or if it has been delayed, reworked, or scrapped?

No kid wants to see that.
Again with the 'nobody wants that'. And nope.

A kid walks into the land - what does he/she/they see?

Spider-Man flying above the rooftops. Cap and Black Widow fighting Taskmaster in a stunt show on the catwalks. Doctor Strange teaching magic that (presumably) makes the trees light up around them. Black Panther entering the area with the Dora Milaje escorting him. Groot towering over guests with his familiar "I am Groot!" welcome. Someone eating a pretzel bigger than the kid's head. Another with a pet Spider-Bot moving in front of them.

And that's before going on the attraction where they get to hurl webs like Spidey does.

Yeah. No kid wants to see that.

Can’t you already see most of that stuff in Hollywood Backlot?

Not the flying stuntronic. Not the stunt show. Not the Sanctum with the magic show. Not the new attraction. Not some of the new characters that will be appearing. Not the specialty foods. Not the Quinjet.

Other than that, yeah, some of those characters were in the Backlot. :)

I’ll buy Spider Bots for all our regulars here if the stuntronic makes it past influencer previews, giant pretzels for everyone if the stunt shows is still going after opening season, and photo passes for all if the sanctum doesn’t devolve into a basic meet in greet by the time the pandemic is over.

Though, I don’t doubt there will be American sized food and more costumes characters.

I'm not into the Spider-Bots (they kinda creep me out), but I'd be happy for a cute Marvel plushie. :D

So far for Disney Marvel attractions around the world we have:

1. TOT retheme- GOTG:MB
2. Midway Mania “clone” crammed into ITTBAB building
3. Star Tours retheme -Iron Man
4. Buzz retheme - Antman aka the worst looking shooter I’ve ever seen
5. Rock n Roller Coaster retheme - Iron Man coaster
Why did Paris get to keep their TOT?
6. Cosmic Rewind - only one I’m excited for

Did I miss anything?
Tot. I don't know their land layout well. Would it be close to the new marvel area?

It looks like they havent started any construction on the E Ticket.

Whats any of that have to do with a community college? You're delusional if you think all this stuff will be going on when you enter the land. You're drinking some of that GE kool aid, like when they promised characters and shows and bounty hunters tracking you.

Even if all of that did happen it'd be way cooler in a city setting and not a school campus administration building.

I hope for everyone's sake that all that amazing stuff is going on in Marvel Land, but I know it'll have maybe 1 meet and greet character, a bad Astroblasters Clone, and a community college building, and for the first 6 months a jumping robot that they will later decide isn't worth maintaining.

Six Flags at least had Gotham City and lets you put on capes. Disney would "freak out" because "what if children thought the people wearing toy capes were employees!".

I'm sorry but if Super Hero Island was plopped into any Disney park throughout the world, it would be bashed as utterly abysmal.

Islands of Adventure is an exceptional park, but Superhero island is its aesthetic weak spot. It may be someone's cup of tea, but it is very very poor.

The attractions are exceptional, minus Doctor Doom, but the land's aesthetics are horrible. It has blown-up cutouts and a plastic aesthetic. If Disney copied this "good" Marvel land's style, they'd never hear the end of it.

The MCU, as a whole, lacks recognizable structures. The Dr. Strange Sanctum Sanctorum and Avengers Campus are really the only two structures that come to my mind when I think of Marvel structures.

I have no idea whether or not they included Sanctum Sanctorum in some capacity so the jury is still out on that one.

It just amazes me that cutouts and plastic facades are the golden children of theme parklands.

If Disney attracted a 20-foot cutout of spiderman to a building people would complain about the lazy design that assumes guests are stupid.

Marvel Super Hero Island is miles below Universal's current standards, I don't see how that can be praised while bashing what Disney just built in DCA. Probably just extreme cynicism towards modern Disney.
I wouldn’t consider Marvel Super Hero Island to be a pinnacle of themed experience design but it’s design has a reasoning behind it that continues to make sense. A WEBS logo on a Circuit City is not really different than the giant Spider-Man at Islands of Adventure. Both are necessary to communicate that this is the Spider-Man ride but one is part of a larger aesthetic choice that works across the land and the other is a one off that requires knowing a backstory to understand why it is relevant. Marvel Super Hero Island has its own ridiculous backstory but it is not necessary to under the basic conceit of super heroes or somewhat understand the idea that you are in a comic book.

I thought he was based off the tv cartoons which is patrick warburton
The Magic Kingdom's Buzz Lightyear ride opened before that show came out, and the Buzz in the rides looks more like the movie version than the show's version. Although the Magic Kingdom did add some characters from the show to the gift shop at the end (I think some of them were removed a while back, though).

Yes. And while I haven't seen every Six Flags Gotham/Superhero area, I wouldn't call a single one of them that I have seen cohesive or good.

TOT is smack in the center of the park (awful placemaking!), and the Marvel area (or at least, the former R&RC) is behind it down an otherwise purposeless path.
