Disney has made plenty of announcements throughout this year’s D23 expo, but the company saved some reveals for Sunday. During the Disneyland parks panel, they shed some light on one of the new attractions headed to the upcoming Avengers Campus in the California Adventure park.
The ride, which will be part of the Avengers Campus phase 2, will be based on the Black Panther corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but will feature many of the Avengers, not just T’Challa himself. It will open with a journey from Avengers HQ to Wakanda on the S.H.I.E.L.D. Quinjet, and guests will wind up in a major Avengers fight by the end, featuring an unnamed MCU villain.
The Avengers Campus is a new park area scheduled to open at California Adventure in 2020, and at Disneyland Paris at an unknown date. The Wakanda ride has only been announced for the California Adventure location currently.
During the Sunday D23 panel, Disney also revealed details about the Avengers Campus Spider-Man ride–as awkward as it may currently be to discuss. The Spider-Man attraction, called W.E.B. (Worldwide Engineering Brigade), will feature “web-slinging vehicles” and new Peter Parker inventions like the Spider-Bot, which will glitch out and begin to replicate itself during the ride’s story.
It’s been an eventful D23. Throughout the weekend, we learned about more returning MCU characters in WandaVision’s cast, the reveal of Disney Plus’s Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, and Moon Knight shows, more details about the Loki and Falcon and Winter Soldier shows, Black Panther 2’s release date, and more about Disney+ and the MCU phase 4.
On the Star Wars side, Disney confirmed that Ewan McGregor is returning to the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi, announced the release date for Star Wars Clone Wars Season 7, and revealed a Disney+ show starring very dead Rogue One characters.
