Marvel Heroes Could be Headed to Disney Theme Parks… Eventually, Maybe

Just as the X-Men must leave their Utopia island when duty calls, so must Marvel’s stable of costumed characters extend themselves beyond the confines of a certain…Island of Adventure. Well, at some point, anyway.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Disney CEO Bob Iger treaded some tricky ground regarding whether or not the House of Mouse’s acquisition of the House of Ideas would take Spider-Man and his amazing friends to the company’s theme parks. After all, the properties are still confined to Universal Studios in Orlando for the time being even if Marvel merchandise has been steadily trickling into Disney’s in-park retailers and online.

“We’re just now considering all of our different options, so it would be premature to say when or where in the parks you would see Marvel characters — but I think it’s safe to say that you’re going to see some of those great Marvel characters walking around in the future.”

While Iger’s vague comment seems like a quiet broadcast of a foregone conclusion (Disney could feasibly put Marvel characters in international parks whenever it wants), I still stand by Universal’s treatment of the Marvel brand as long as they keep their awesome 4-wheelers running.[Via LA Times]
