Incorrect . They NEVER call it a campus. show me the clip where they do. In Endgame capt america gives ant-man loki's scepter before him and Tony go back to 1970 and capt even says and I qoute, "Scott, get this back to the COMPOUND". That is my evidence. show me yours. Plus you certainly did not see that in "The Avengers" because in the first movie the original building is just called 'Stark Tower" It didn't become 'Avenger's Tower" UNTIL "Age of Ultron" and at the end of that movie the new upstate new york headquarters is called "NEW AVENGERS FACILILTY" on the screen. In later films they call it the "avenger's headquarters" and "the compound" BOOM GOES THE DYNOMITE.
Okay, you were right. I rewatched. Coulson does refer to a “campus” but it isn’t the place where Avengers train. It’s the building where they hold the Tesseract. My bad.

I don't watch the Marvel films but I will say that the core essence of Comic Books are action and excitement.

A school campus doesn't do that for me at all. I think people who don't even watch Marvel movies should have a fun and exiting land. This does not provide that.

Something like Six Flags Gotham (before it got rethemed) or Island of Adventures Comic Book Land do a great job of showcasing a comic book world and the excitement that goes with it.

A college campus? What? You need a crime
filled city for the heroes and criminals
to fight together in.

The theme should be INSTANTLY recognizable. The second you have to explain the back story of how Avengers Campus relates to super heroes or how Batuu related to Star Wars, is the second you already lost the point of the source material.

We just need a city where Spiderman can beat up some thugs. Community college though? No kid wants to see that.

I'm not yet weighing in on their choice of "place", but some people (not just the quoted poster) need to be reminded that while the term campus often refers to a school setting, that's far from the exclusive meaning. It's really just an area with a grouping of buildings or assets used by an organization.

I've worked at a couple different hospitals that have been referred to as campuses.

And here's a nice little primer from our friends at BBC:
The rise of the multibillion-dollar corporate campus

(As a side-note, it's worth mentioning that many people feel an ideally designed campus usually includes notable landscaping.)

Carry on.

I live in the Silicon Valley and most of the major corporations call their HQ campuses. Some even have multiple campuses spread across the area, though many of them are trying to consolodate them by building larger HQ like Apple and Google.

Avengers Campus is a satallite HQ with multiple buildings. It's appropriately named.

The general public. The folks here never love anything lol
Sometimes I have the same feeling too, but you just gotta remember that the people around here don't really like some of the "newer" experiences.

Just don't bring up that you really enjoy GE and/or Sourin' Around the World and you'll be just fine.

1. No they don't. The New Avenger's facility from Age of Ultron onward is called "the compound" or " avenger's headquarters" but not a campus and what they built in DCA is not and is not supposed to be the same compound from the films. and its stupid because you don't go to school to be a superhero.
Campus doesn’t necessarily mean “educational facility.” Businesses, hospitals, and churches have campuses.

But I do really enjoy GE, and I like the original soarin better but have no issue with the world version. I guess I'm in trouble.

Yes! Almost forgot churches. My dad works as a facilities director at a large church and they definitely call it a campus. There are several buildings there.

I don't think it's healthy to really love anything in a theme park. It's not a living thing, it's an amusement park. Plenty of things amuse me at Disneyland, plenty of things don't. Avengerland doesn't look remotely appealing to me. I'd only be interested in seeing the Spider-Man dummy shot over the roof.

That's fine, you're allowed your opinion. I on the other hand can't wait to see it. I wish the e ticket would be open when I go but alas that just gives me another reason to go.
