Disney California Adventure, the site of the new Marvel-inspired Avengers Campus opening on June 4, is a superhero hangout where Earth's mightiest heroes interact with guests daily: Heroic Encounters include Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Spider-Man, and Steve Rogers, who greets guests in front of a backdrop depicting a large version of Captain America's shield.
Heroes assembling inside Avengers Campus include Black Widow, Thor, Doctor Strange, members of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Wakanda's fierce Dora Milaje, and the superhero duo Ant-Man and the Wasp, who make their first appearance at the Disneyland Resort. When Disney Parks unveiled the full superhero roster during an Avengers Campus preview attended by ComicBook.com in 2020, we learned Tony Stark will showcase his new Mark 80 Iron Man armor for Campus recruits — who just might catch superheroes springing into action against the villain Taskmaster on the ramparts of Avengers Headquarters.
"I think [Dave Bushore, Vice President, Franchise Creative & Marketing, Marvel Studios was] always bringing this line in the very beginning, the Nick Fury line. 'You're part of a bigger universe, you just didn't know it yet,'" Scot Drake, Portfolio Creative Executive, Walt Disney Imagineering, said during ComicBook.com's behind-the-scenes look at Avengers Campus. "And we take that into every attraction, every Heroic Encounter, everything should make you feel like you're part of something even bigger."
Avengers Campus is "absolutely the next progression of telling these stories, of experiencing what it's like to ride alongside these characters," said Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios President and Marvel Chief Creative Officer. "It could only be done in a Disney theme park attraction."
The Marvel-themed Avengers Campus opens June 4 inside Disney California Adventure park at the Disneyland Resort. Purchase tickets.
