In advance of the 10am opening time for the first day of this October’s MCM London Comic Con, your humble reporter joined a strictly invite only list of guests for a very special Disney presentation. Conducted with secrecy that would make SHIELD proud, we were shown news of a huge heroic change coming to the Disneyland Paris theme park starting next summer:
The Marvel superheroes will be represented in the Paris park in various exciting ways starting from next summer and a Marvel themed hotel is scheduled for completion in 2020.
Exciting as this news is, it was only the centre of a massive area of the MCM convention specifically focused on the Marvel universe. Highlights included costume displays for the just released Thor Ragnarok and forthcoming Black Panther films, the chance to buy customised Marvel merchandise including phone cases and keyrings, the latest toys from brands such as Hot Wheels and Hasbro’s Marvel Legends and several photo opportunities with representations of the world famous Marvel heroes.
