Disneyland in Anaheim, California is currently busy converting part of Califonia Adventure into a Marvel-themed area. Thanks to the company also owning Marvel Studios, that means they can bring in some great people to work on the area and do things like creating a new Spider-Man costume!
The new Marvel attractions are currently being prepped for both Disneyland Resort and Disneyland Paris, and one of them will be the Worldwide Engineering Brigade (WEB). This will be an interactive attraction that allows you to interact with Spider-Man and other characters.
But the most exciting part is Disney brought in Ryan Meinerding, Head of Visual Development at Marvel Studios to design Spider-Man’s new suit.
Meinerding has worked on the Spider-Man suits in films such as Spider-Man Homecoming, so don’t be surprised if you see a bit of similarity.
“It has been the highlight of my career to design all of Spider-Man’s suits for the most recent films,” Meinerding said in a statement. “Bringing him to life through Tony Stark’s capable design aesthetic was a true joy, but working with the Walt Disney Imagineering team to develop a look for Spidey that reflects the innovation of a team of young geniuses really brings him to a new level. And knowing that park guests can get up close to that suit and really take in all the detail the astounding Imagineers packed into it means that we have truly brought a new version of the character to life.”
No word yet on an opening date for the new attractions.
