Join Iron Man and the rest of the Avengers for new heroic missions!

Well isn’t this exciting, welcome to the world of MARVEL with you in the heart of the action. I and many others have been anticipating this day for years and with many announcements, surprises and tons of exciting concept art we finally have a date to add to our superhero schedules. What was originally planned to open in 2021 got delayed due to the pandemic, but with some exciting developments, the opening couldn’t come at a better time with the new Hotel New York: The Art of Marvel now open, which I was lucky enough to spend three days there.

As part of the Resort’s most ambitious transformation and expansion of Walt Disney Studios Park since its opening, the first-ever Marvel-themed universe in Europe will be unveiled. Marvel Avengers Campus will offer surprise live-action stunts, heroic encounters with Marvel Super Heroes, two action-packed attractions and extra special themed restaurants and boutique.

Marvel Avengers Campus opens at Disneyland Paris on 20.07.2022, with the promise to empower guests to take an active role alongside Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and live out their own heroic story. Marvel Avengers Campus is an entirely reimagined universe dedicated to discovering, recruiting and training the next generation of Heroes, right here, right now in Disneyland Paris. Everyone is invited to join the action – teaming up with the Avengers and their allies throughout the land; slinging webs like Spider-Man; flying into space with Iron Man and Captain Marvel, and suiting up and re-fueling in true Super Hero fashion.

Opening as part of the 30th Anniversary celebration of Disneyland Paris, Marvel Avengers Campus is the next key milestone in Walt Disney Studios Park multi-year transformation plan and represents the Resort’s next level of exceptional guest experiences. With Marvel Avengers Campus and Disney Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel, Disneyland Paris is poised to be the ULTIMATE destination for Marvel fans to live an immersive experience among their favourite Super Heroes.

WELCOME TO AVENGERS CAMPUS

Avengers Campus has been created by Tony Stark himself to discover, recruit and train the next generation of Super-Heroes. For the first time, recruits will be empowered to take an active role alongside the Avengers.

To fulfil this promise, Walt Disney Imagineering teams in Paris and around the world have worked alongside teams that brought the Avengers films, television series and comics to life. Together, they have designed and created a brand-new place in the Marvel multiverse that champions the inner Super Hero that lives in all of us. In fact, regardless of whether they are long-standing Marvel fans or come new to the Super Hero world once they enter Avengers Campus, they all become recruits, ready to take the next step in their heroic journey!

Imagine helping Spider-Man on a mission where you can shoot webs from your wrists, saving the universe at high speed along with Iron Man and Captain Marvel, training with Okoye and the Dora Milaje, seeing Black Widow fight evil forces, dancing with the Guardians of the Galaxy… and so much more!

During their “Adventure with a capital A”, recruits will be able to gear up like some of their favourite Super Heroes with an exclusive shopping experience and of course, refuel like the Avengers would with various delicious eats and treats at restaurants PYM Kitchen, Stark Factory and more!

LIVE-ACTION AND HEROIC ENCOUNTERS

Entering Avengers Campus, guests will become recruits and train alongside Marvel Super Heroes. The adventure will be action-packed as Avengers Campus will bring together Earth’s Mightiest Heroes from almost every corner.

With surprise, live-action stunts and heroic encounters, including Spider-Man, Iron Man, Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Black Widow, Thor and Loki, recruits will get to become part of the Marvel universe. Sam Wilson as Captain America, Ant-Man and The Wasp, Okoye and the Dora Milaje from Wakanda, will also make their first appearance at Disneyland Paris! These diverse set of Super Heroes will be ready to defend the Avengers Campus, which could surely lead to action on the rooftop and all over the campus. Recruits definitely want to hang out there to see what happens.

Recruits will have the opportunity to meet Spider-Man, Iron Man or Captain Marvel in a new dedicated building unique to Avengers Campus in Disneyland Paris, the Training Center. For the first time in a Disney Park, a dynamic “freeze-frame” video sequence, created by DisneyPhotoPass™ with 27 cameras all around the action, can capture these meetings with Captain Marvel or Iron Man and turn them into unforgettable moments. These special encounters will be available for booking through the Disneyland Paris mobile app.

New recruits of all ages will be able to encounter heroes outdoors throughout their visit in more interactive and exciting ways than ever before. They will get the chance to train with Black Panther’s loyal protectors, the Dora Milaje, and learn from the warriors of Wakanda on what it’s like to be a member of this elite royal guard.

Also, a sleek new high-tech Avengers vehicle will roam the Campus throughout the day dispatching the Heroes in style! And, of course, upon the QuinPad, the gleaming Quinjet will also be the focal point of special missions.

Saving the world can also be fun as recruits will have a chance to try on their best dance moves during an interactive dance-off with Star-Lord and Gamora from the Guardians of the Galaxy. The Gateway Portal will also give recruits the chance to capture the moment when they meet one of the many Super Heroes of Avengers Campus.

“F.R.I.D.A.Y.” the famous Artificial Intelligence designed by Tony Stark himself will be watching out and interacting with the Earth’s Mightiest Super Heroes. Uploaded to the building façade of AVENGERS ASSEMBLE: FLIGHT FORCE building–the Avengers Headquarters –she will also welcome recruits to the Campus, monitor it for threats, and signal the arrivals and departures of Avengers. F.R.I.D.A.Y.’s presence will be exclusive to Disneyland Paris. 

ACTION-PACKED ADVENTURES

For any budding Super Heroes looking to get into the action, literally, alongside some of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, two attractions await inside Avengers Campus Paris! 

AVENGERS ASSEMBLE: FLIGHT FORCE

Exclusive to Disneyland Paris, AVENGERS ASSEMBLE: FLIGHT FORCE is every Super-Heroes fan and thrill-seekers’ dream come true. 

On this high-speed rollercoaster, recruits will team up with none other than Captain Marvel herself and the one and only Iron Man. Recruits will be briefed by Iron Man himself, equipped with a brand-new Mark 80 armour exclusively designed for his missions at Avengers Campus. With no time to waste, you will have the opportunity to team up with the two Avengers on a high-speed mission. They will embark and fly up through space in a vehicle that Stark has equipped with a homing device, to lure the threat away from planet Earth.

SPIDER-MAN W.E.B. ADVENTURE 

SPIDER-MAN W.E.B. ADVENTURE is a new generation of attraction at Disneyland Paris where recruits of all ages will be given web-slinging superpowers accomplished through innovative technology created specifically for this attraction. The mission: team up with Spidey and help capture the out-of-control Spider-Bots – Peter Parker’s robot sidekicks – before they wreak havoc on the Campus.

The adventure begins at Avengers Campus’ Worldwide Engineering Brigade – also known as WEB – a workshop of bright innovators who specialize in developing new technologies to equip and empower everyday people to become Super Heroes like the Avengers. This workshop showcases the inventions of Peter Parker and the rest of the WEB Tech team, including their adorable Spider-Bots which are designed to be robotic sidekicks capable of building anything a Super Hero might need.

Through specially designed, innovative technology that recognizes body movements and gestures, recruits will reach out their hands and sling webs from their wrists, just like Spider-Man. As the WEB Slinger vehicles progress and the mission continues, Spider-Bots will become harder and harder to beat as they continue to multiply. After helping Spider-Man trap the rogue Spider-Bots, recruits will be able to see how many Spider-Bots they caught as a team in their vehicles.

EXCLUSIVE DINING EXPERIENCES

When it is time to take a break from the heroics, new dining spots will offer sustenance. Avengers Campus Recruits will refuel with Epic Eats and Treats at new immersive themed restaurants and food karts.

PYM KITCHEN

Pym Kitchen is an innovative science lab where the food and drinks tell a story.

Just as Ant-Man and The Wasp use “Pym Particles” to grow and shrink to just about anything, Pym Technologies applies this science to the creation of shareable bites, inventive entrees and sweet treats as a buffet. Recruits will be able to savour items at unusual scales, including both gigantic shareable pretzel sandwiches, hot dogs, burgers, cakes, and their tiniest versions for those who wish to try everything.

Adults can sip on a special glass of Blue Chardonnay or taste test a selection of four tiny beers served in Pym Kitchen souvenir glasses. Fancy some red wine? Enjoy red wine in tiny vials as red as the colour of the reducing Pym particle! Or perhaps you’d prefer cocktails? You can choose from two — a signature blue and red cocktail presented in a beaker, or a superfood cocktail made with Blue Chardonnay, Perrier, Martini and dried goji berries.

STARK FACTORY

Have an appetite for invention… and pizza, pasta and salad? Then fly over to Stark Factory, a quick-service kitchen and high-tech workspace where Super Heroes can come to build and repair their gear.

The signature dessert will be paying tribute to Thor as it will be inspired by the God of Thunder’s very own favourite treats as seen in Marvel Comics. 

Formerly an assembly line for Howard Stark, it features relics of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s earlier activities and hosts many “Easter Eggs” hidden as fan tributes including artefacts built by Tony Stark and the impressive HulkBuster – the armour he created with the help of Bruce Banner for the Hulk, which is exclusive to Disneyland Paris.

Additionally, if you’re refuelling on the go, stop by the FAN-tastic food truck for hot dogs, vegan sausages, and cheesecake on a stick! There’s also the nearby Super Diner for grab-and-go options including hearty Reuben sandwiches.

GEAR UP WITH HEROIC MERCHANDISE

After you’ve saved the day  (and fueled up), there’s plenty of merchandise to choose from that will surely supercharge your heroic experience.

MISSION EQUIPMENT

Get ready for your heroic missions and training sessions with the latest W.E.B. and Campus-created tech, uniforms and weapons. Pick up yours from Mission Equipment!

Mission Equipment shop will be the place to pick up a great range of campus gear, including official Avengers Campus and WEB – Worldwide Engineering Brigade – supplies. This one-of-a-kind shop will include kids’ and adults’ accessories that will enhance their experience, and so much more.

WEB Tech accessories will make recruits experience even more special

SPIDER-MAN W.E.B. ADVENTURE is the first Disneyland Paris attraction allowing recruits to customize their experience on board, using WEB Tech accessories. For additional powers and customized experience, check out the WEB Tech accessories available at the Mission Equipment shop, located inside the building of the attraction. With the purchase of WEB Power Band, recruits will have access to advanced functions like a multi-firing web option while battling those Spider-Bots on the loose inside SPIDER-MAN W.E.B. ADVENTURE. Yes, when gearing up with WEB Tech accessories, you will be able to discover your OWN powers and get a different experience on board the attraction!

WEB Tech can change recruits powers on the attraction to those inspired by fan-favourite Super Heroes – like Spider-Man with electro-dynamic webs, Iron Man with repulsor blasts and Doctor Strange with mystic amplifier.

 CUSTOMIZABLE SPIDER-BOTS

Every Super Hero needs a friendly sidekick to help protect their neighbourhood. Spider-Bots place recruits in the driver’s seat, allowing them to command their own Spider-Bot and battle opponents, with programmed combat and defensive abilities. Looking to take your Spider-Bot to the next level? Inspired by some favourite Super Heroes, tactical upgrades change the overall appearance of a Spider-Bot and enhance its battle capabilities. These tactical upgrades are inspired by Iron Man, Black Widow, and Black Panther… But keep an eye out for more to come!

That’s not all, as there will also be exclusive Avengers Campus Paris items available, too, including apparel, accessories, home goods, and more! 

PLAY AND STAY FOR A FULLY IMMERSIVE GETAWAY

Disneyland Paris offers the ultimate Marvel experience from sunrise to sunset for guests who stay at Disney’s Hotel New York: The Art of Marvel. I was lucky enough to spend my three days at Disneyland Paris in this EPIC! hotel which opened in June of 2021. The experience is top-notch and is taken to the next level with an incredible 360-degree approach to storytelling, including the Super Hero Station which offers Heroic Encounters with Captain America and Black Widow (as of Marvel Avengers Campus opening) and the Hero Training Zone, an outdoor field with dedicated areas for a variety of sports activities that can be enjoyed by guests of all ages.

The hotel also holds 350 pieces of artwork created by more than 110 artists from Europe and beyond – including 50 exclusive pieces – it is one of the largest publicly viewable collections of Marvel art in the world.

My stay was contemporary and comfortable as I felt Tony Stark’s metropolitan urban style throughout the walls. I also discovered the cosmopolitan tastes of New York through the Hotel’s immersive dining experiences. The Hotel also includes a Marvellous Boutique and a state-of-the-art wall of Iron-Man armour.

Disney Imagineers and Disneyland Paris teams have pushed the boundaries of technology and innovation in order to bring this empowering, one-of-a-kind experience to life –including a series of ‘firsts’ for Disneyland Paris.

Disneyland Paris is in a constant state of transformation, from its theme parks to its hotels, shopping, dining and more. While celebrating its 30th Anniversary, Disneyland Paris will establish its entry into a new era with the opening of Avengers Campus on 20.07.2022.

X-Men ’97 Review | Nostalgic, Epic & Marvelous!

Published

on

X-Men '97 (Disney)

Get ready for action-packed adventure, many surprise cameos and a storyline that takes

Plot

A band of mutants use their uncanny gifts to protect a world that hates and fears them; they’re challenged like never before, forced to face a dangerous and unexpected new future.

X-Men ’97 (Disney)

Review

X-Men ’97 is a revival of the classic 1990s animated television series. The storyline picks up directly after the events of the original series, maintaining continuity and preserving the beloved elements that made the original a hit show back in the day. Many of the original voice cast members have returned, including Cal Dodd as Wolverine, Lenore Zann as Rogue, George Buza as Beast, Alison Sealy-Smith as Storm and Adrian Hough as Kurt Wagner/Nightcrawler, which adds a layer of originality and contributes to the overall nostalgia of the television show​. Here I’m feeling like a little kid again, watching the show on a Saturday morning. I was 7 years old when it was on television in the early mornings, and it still brings back fond memories.

There were a number of new stars who joined the show such as Ray Chase who replaced Norm Spencer as Cyclops, Jennifer Hale who replaced Catherine Disher as Jean Grey, Holly Chou who replaced Alyson Court as Jubilee, A.J. LoCascio as Gambit, Matthew Waterson as Magneto, J.P. Karliak as Morph, Isaac Robinson-Smith as Bishop, Ross Marquand as Professor Charles Xavier and Gui Agustini as Roberto da Costa/Sunspot.

X-Men ’97 (Disney)

The series starts off in a world where the X-Men grapple with the loss of Professor Charles Xavier. Amidst all the chaos and uncertainty, Magneto rises to the occasion and becomes the new leader of the X-Men. This provides additional drama and the team dynamics is frequently tested with the new leadership. While dealing with the new leadership dynamics the X-Men finds themselves still dealing with people who would stop at nothing to end all mutants. The storyline doesn’t hold back on the action sequences and themes such as grief, loss and acceptance are touched on throughout the series.

The trailer of the show doesn’t spoil anything for the viewer, and I highly encourage you to watch every intro and try to spot any new changes. The show provides many cameos and easter eggs, keeping my hopes alive of a potential crossover.

The story ends with a twist, leaving you hungry for the next season, and as any Marvel movie or television show would have it, a mid-credits scene to whet your appetite for what’s to come. If you are new to X-Men you can still jump in and watch the television series, but I highly recommend watching the original series to get you up to date with most of the lore and history of the X-Men.

X-Men ’97 keeps the legacy of our favorite mutants alive with a well-written story that is filled with emotion, surprises and promises of more adventures.

Thank you Beau DeMayo for an eXcellent story! I rate this show a 5 out of 5!

Will we skip the intro song? No! I don’t think we will. Make sure to catch the show on Disney Plus!

Madame Web Review

Published

on

Celeste O'Connor, Dakota Johnson, Isabela Merced & Sydney Sweeney (Sony)

Be ready to get caught in the web of Cassandra, our very own Madame Web. Swing by your local cinemas now to catch Madame Web on the big screen!

Plot

Cassandra Webb is a New York City paramedic who starts to show signs of clairvoyance. Forced to confront revelations about her past, she must protect three young women from a mysterious adversary who wants them dead.

Isabela Merced, Dakota Johnson, Sydney Sweeney, Celeste O’Connor (Sony)

Movie Review (no spoiler)

Madame Web, the fourth entry in the Sony’s Spider-Man Universe brings us a different take on a complete new group of heroes in the heart of New York. I need to caution the readers that when going to watch the movie, keep an open mind. This movie is about Madame Web and her role as a protector to three young women who will play a much greater role in future…hopefully. If you are expecting Peter Parker / Spider-Man to swing in and catch a crook, you will sadly be disappointed.

I firmly welcome the new take on the Spider-Women within Marvel. Since Across the Spider-Verse I have pondered the question on whether we will get a chance to see any of the Spider-Women on the big screen and also the ‘How?’. I have always seen Cassandra Webb / Madame Web play a motherlike and protector role. I personally think Dakota Johnson played her part excellently well in that sense.

Sydney Sweeney, Isabela Merced and Celeste O’Connor plays the parts of Julia Cornwall, Anya Corazon and Mattie Franklin and delivers a breath of fresh air. They are teased to play big roles in the future, according to the villain in the movie. The new villain of the movie, played by Tahar Rahim, provides a thrilling experience at first but gets taken down too easily at the end.

Tahar Rahim as Ezekiel Sims (Sony)

Madame Web provided a good introduction to a new character, which is Madame Web, but sadly doesn’t provide any promise of continuity and linkages with any of the existing movies within the current universe. A few easter eggs in the movie point to another beloved Marvel character, but I would have loved to experience more of Cassie’s web and the chance of a teaser for the other heroines of the movie since there are still so much stories left to tell. There is unfortunately no post-credits scene, which was a let down, considering Madame Web is part of the Sony Spider-Man Universe and continuity is what many are hopeful for. I’m curious if we get to see continuity later in the form of a sequel or even a cameo of Cassie, Julia, Mattie and / or Anya in any other production.

I rate this movie 3 out of 5.

The trailer doesn’t spoil too much of the storyline. Make sure to catch at a big screen near you.
