The monorail wrap was a loophole. I feel like Disney could find ways to use Marvel. It doesn't really matter, I want a Star Wars land in DHS anyways. Forget about Superhero and go with Jedi..

^That would likely still be a violation of the contract because DisneyQuest is considered in many ways to be a theme park. The monorails were acceptable as they never entered the park limits (the Marvel wrapped monorails were never allowed on the Epcot line). Merchandise is the only true exception that is allowed inside of the parks (there has been Thor merchandise in the Norway pavilion for quite some time), as the terms regarding merchandise are totally different.

As much as I love Marvel and hope we can see it come to the Florida parks sometime down the road, I do have a soft spot for what Universal has done with that IP... And more importantly, it means that Florida can focus on capitalizing on that other multi-billion dollar franchise. ;)

I don't think Disney really cares that they can't use Marvel in their parks in Orlando. I'm sure they are making a ton of money off everything else Marvel. They have plenty of things they can use to theme a ride or area and don't need the super-heroes.

Marvel is good, but there are a ton of other things that Disney owns that could bring in the money. I would love to see a total refurb/update to GMR. It's been way too long, and only us older people and film students even know what all those movies are!

That would be awesome. I actually really love that ride system/concept. They could do so much with it!

I wouldn't say "never." If Disney really WANTED to use Marvel in their Orlando parks, they could.

IIRC, the Universal license only applies to the comic book versions of the characters. I don't think the movie versions are covered...

I'm referring to that I'm sure there is a price tag that could be paid to allow them to use Marvel. I mean, think about it... They paid 4 billion and got Star Wars. Don't ever rule out anything! ;)
