Disneyland Expands Avengers Campus With ‘King Thanos’ Multiverse Ride – CNET

Disneyland is expanding its Avengers Campus area, adding another ride into the superhero mix.

“We’re bringing the multiverse to Avengers Campus,” Marvel head Kevin Feige said Sunday during the Parks and Experiences panel at Disney’s D23 expo in Anaheim, California. 

In the new attraction, you’ll be able to battle alongside all the foes from everywhere and “everywhen,” Feige said. There will be a new villain named King Thanos, and “this is a Thanos that won, and the Avengers are not too happy about that and you have to help them.”

A Giant Hulk in an Avengers suit will also be walking around starting next week, with Mark Ruffalo appearing via video link to make the announcement.

Disneyland’s Avengers Campus was first announced at D23 three years ago. Though it was originally supposed to open in summer 2020, the pandemic pushed back its opening to summer 2021.

It’s likely the new expansion and attraction will include a takeover of the building facade currently used for the live-action show, and the parking lot that sits behind it.

Avengers Campus opened at Disney’s California Adventure in Anaheim with one new attraction, Spider-Man Web Slingers, which joined the Guardians of the Galaxy ride (previously rethemed from its Tower of Terror origins back in 2017). It also has a Dr. Strange area and the Ant-Man-themed eatery and brewery Pym Test Kitchen.

D23 has so far seen Disney reveal more of its Splash Mountain retheming, the latest Hocus Pocus 2 trailer, new movie Mufasa: The Lion King, a teaser trailer for The Little Mermaid, Pixar’s Inside Out 2, a new Disney animation called Iwájú and more.
