The other one I'm aware of this time around was about the big bang and energy - the event, not the TV show.

They were considering this again?? As in a month ago, when the Guardians plans were in jeopardy? I knew about this plan from several years ago from the fantastic concept art you shared.

I can just imagine the conversations going on in the former UoE building a few years from now.

Me: "Kids, I remember back in 1982 when this building contained cool robot dinosaurs and interesting films about energy. I'm so glad it's now a place where I can walk back and forth endlessly through switchbacks, pausing only occasionally to play a touchscreen game similar to what we play on our phones except with extra germs! Progress!"

Person behind me: "Me like fast coaster. *COUGH* *SPIT*" /Wipes loogie on $75 t-shirt he has purchased from the Marvel gift shop outside the ride.
I do remember the cool robot dinosaurs, still there btw, but, until Ellen came in there were absolutely no interesting films about energy, just one long infomercial for Exxon. It, to me, was the most commercial pavilion in all of WDW.

I didn't know Exxon of 1982 were into solar energy and nuclear fission.

It's a popular misconception the original pavilion was about petrol. Half the entire attraction - including preshow and diorama - was about renewable energy.

A very small portion of a 45 minute show, Martin. It was the driest show ever and offered so many things that we already knew coupled with implying how lucky we were to have Exxon working for our benefit. Pretty much around the same time they were forced to clean up the Valdez mess in Alaska. I was then, and remain, unimpressed.

That's why with the sign they can use the "MARVEL" Colors to identify what they are promoting

However, HKDL's summer of Heroes event is using the MARVEL name in it's ads...
