The Marvel Cinematic Universe’s journey into the multiverse isn’t stopping with the movies or Disney+ TV shows. At the D23 Expo, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige announced that the story of the multiverse will continue to evolve within Disney’s theme parks too–specifically, Avengers Campus at Disneyland Resort’s California Adventure.
The new ride was announced, and concept art was shown. However, practically no details were revealed. All we know is that it’s coming someday and it looks like it’s going to be a major addition to the park. Additionally, chances are this is a replacement plan for the Avengers Quinjet ride that was previously announced for the park. Oh, yeah, and Thanos is back, sort of.
The ride is an interesting addition to the shared universe, seeing as Avengers Campus already exists in a strange little continuity bubble all its own–Tony Stark is alive, the Guardians haven’t broken up, Black Widow is a regular face character with a stunt show, and so on. The new ride will be the first time the Avengers Campus story actually intersects with the multiverse explicitly, though–and that could mean just about anything for both the ride itself and the future of the land’s ongoing story.
With so few details, there’s nothing we can do but wildly speculate about what it could all mean. Which characters will be included? How will this connect Marvel’s various universes? Is this a rollercoaster? These are all questions we have after Marvel’s ride presentation. So let’s take a look at what we know, what we need to know, and what it could all mean.
When you’re done obsessing over this ride with us, make sure to check out all of the Marvel and Star Wars shows and movies revealed at D23, along with everything else Disney is up to.
