Avengers Campus at the Disneyland Resort has been open for about a month now and is quickly becoming one of the favorite lands and in the parks. WEB Slingers and Hank Pym’s Test Kitchen are the major standouts in the land. However, the meet-greet characters are also bright spots, and the park is going to continue to feature the popular characters from the still-growing MCU.
We have seen Spider-Man wall crawl, and swing from buildings, we have seen the new Captain America in Sam Wilson, Black Widow and Taskmaster duking it out below the helicarrier, and Loki get new looks as the hit Disney+ series drops a new episode. As I just said, the MCU is continuing to grow with new movies and series still to come this year, all of which will introduce to some brand new characters from Shang-Chi to the Eternals, to Kate Bishop and Ms. Marvel. Now, thanks to a new post in the Disney Parks Blog, we now know these new characters will appearing at Avengers: Campus.
Coming to theaters November 5, “Eternals” features an exciting new team of Super Heroes in the cinematic universe, ancient aliens who have been living on Earth in secret for thousands of years. In the film, an unexpected tragedy forces them out of the shadows to reunite against mankind’s most ancient enemy, the Deviants. And later this fall at Disney California Adventure park, you may encounter members of the Eternals team on future expeditions to Avengers Campus. With more series and films on the horizon, like “Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings,” you never know who you may encounter at Avengers Campus.Shawn Slater, Senior Communications Manager, Disney Live Entertainment
