Many WDW fans have the means to do so, but don't out of stubborn habit. They'll go to WDW multiple times a year and then complain when other Disney resorts get rides they want to try.
Well, then make the effort. The difference in distance between Orlando and Anaheim from where many WDW fans live is greatly exaggerated.
They have to be based off the comic versions.
Except they’re not. Many of the depictions are rooted in the animated television shows of the 90s. The language is that they must conform to the style guides and character designs have changed.
They weren’t. Not about developing the ride anyway.Do you fellas recall the time that a few insiders on here had claimed that Universal was in the process of developing a huge Avengers attraction for IOA? The attraction was to feature the MCU versions of the characters, which in turn, would lead Universal to give Marvel Island - an MCU inspired facelift?
Is it safe to assume that these guys were completely wrong...
Let’s be honest with ourselves. Disney would have not allowed it. Period.No, they weren’t. The ride system wasn’t viable - as discussed.
The proposal was permitted under the agreement.Let’s be honest with ourselves. Disney would have not allowed it. Period.
Universal has done their part keeping Spider-Man and Hulk up to date with their refurbs and redos. Then again, it is a must for Universal to do so if they do not wish to get penalized by Disney for breaking any of the contractual agreements.
Exactly...fundamentally flawed to think that Comcast or Disney is really stressing this.Uninversal has something Disney really wants. Why would they ever give it to them? Honestly, even if they just sit on the rights, why would they facilitate Disney getting it back?
Honestly, the more Disney fans want the rights back, the less likely Universal would be to cooperate.
Bottom line is that there is no Marvel problem in Universal's eyes.
There’s little incentive for Disney to spend $3 bil in capex to build new rides based on those characters. It would provide little foot traffics expenditures beyond what they will get anyway in comparison.Part of me wishes Universal would give up the rights, so Disney could do more with the characters than 90's interpretations of 90's comic book material. On the other hand, as soon as Disney gets the rights, Marvel characters will be shoe-horned in all over WDW, and I don't want that either.
It's weird to think that Marvel Superhero Island predates Marvel being anything other than a niche interest for kids and mega-nerds.
Disney would have control/approval over whatever they tried to build...just as marvel had say when blackstone/universal built IOA.So, ultimately, why doesn’t UO slap one in the face of WDW and build a Marvel whatever (ride, pavilion, restaurant, etc) and make the $$$$$.
Are they just interested in the merch? Seems underdeveloped for such an exclusive right.
Also, is there an expiration to the contract?
