Disney Parks Avengers Campus is Not MCU Canon

Last year’s blockbuster, Avengers: Endgame wrapped up the Infinity Saga as we know it. The film saw all our favorite heroes together for the first time in an epic battle to defeat Thanos, sadly we lost a couple of our favorite Avengers in the process, Tony Stark aka Iron Man and Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow.

Well, not all is sad, as Avengers Campus at the various Disney Parks will see the return of all of our favorite Marvel characters, as it has been confirmed that Avengers Campus will not be connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

While speaking with, executive creative director of Disney Parks Live Entertainment,  Dan Fields, revealed where these heroes exist in the Marvel timeline:

“This campus exists in the real world, and therefore, those heroes are here and keep an eye on us, keep us all safe. There’s no apocalyptic snap happening on this campus.”

Jillian Pagan, story lead for Avengers Campus and staff writer for Walt Disney Imagineering, also added, sharing that Avengers Campus exists in an alternate universe:

“[W]e live in a version of the multiverse where there are some characters who did not sacrifice themselves for us, they are alive and well and now welcome you to it.”

The campus is set to feature a Spider-Man attraction called WE, with Tom Holland returning to voice the web-slinger. It will also feature Pym’s Test Kitchen, which will use technology to shrink and grow certain foods and drinks. The main building will the Avengers Headquarters, which is said to feature a lot of Avengers content. Guests will also be able to ride the Quinjet and fly to “Wakanda and beyond,” having guests team up with the Avengers.

Avengers Campus

Avengers Campus at Disney’s California Adventure is currently scheduled to open on July 18, 2020. It is unknown at this time if that opening date is the plan, as the Disneyland Resort remains closed until further notice, due to the coronavirus outbreak.
