Avengers Campus Paris Welcomes New Recruits

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

Published

on

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.

D23 Expo 2022: First Marvel Studios’ ‘Werewolf By Night’ Trailer and Poster Revealed

Your RSVP to Bloodstone Manor is requested for October 7.

Published

on

Here at Coastal House Media, we are ready to dive further into the Multiverse? During Saturday’s Walt Disney Studios – Lucasfilm & Marvel Studios Presentation at D23 Expo 2022, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige took to the stage to share a ton of brand new announcements as the MCU dives further into Phase 4, 5, and 6 — aka, The Multiverse Saga.

In Hall D23, Kevin Feige was joined by director Michael Giacchino and the cast including Gael García Bernal and Laura Donnelly to share with the world that Marvel Studios’ Special Presentation: Werewolf By Night, will premiere on Disney+ on October 7th. To add to that they unveiled the trailer for the first time ever to fans.

Watch the Special Presentation Trailer Below:

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is becoming a scary place, especially when characters like Werewolf by Night emerge from the darkness. This Halloween themes-special coming to Disney+ will star Garl García as the literal werewolf named Jack Russell the howling hero has protected the darkest corners of the Marvel Universe from supernatural threats – while going on an occasional rampage himself.

The character debuted in the comics in 1971 in Marvel’s Spotlight by Gerry Conway and Mike Ploog, before getting his own comic series in 1972. Born in Transylvania as Jacob Russoff, Jack is the descendant of Grigori Russoff, who was turned into a werewolf after fighting Dracula in 1795. Although the werewolf’s curse remained dormant for generations, it was reactivated by Jack’s grandfather Gregor after he copied the Darkhold, an ancient book of arcane evil power. Under a full moon, that curse turned Gregor, his son Gregory, and their adult descendants into feral werewolves with animalistic appearances and supernatural abilities like enhanced strength, lightning-fast agility, and a considerable healing factor. They also inherited the traditional lycanthropic weakness to silver.  However, García could also be playing Jake Gomez.

The first trailer is in black and white and oozes the classic monster and Hammer movie vibes I’ve grown to love such as Wolfman, Frankenstein, and The Creature from the Black Lagoon. Directed by composer Michael Giacchino and also starring Laura Donnelly who’s rumoured to be playing Elsa Bloodstone the monster-hunting hero.

Throught the Werewolf joined forces with other monsters such as Morbius the living Vampire, N’Kantu the Living Mummy, Manphibian, and The Man-Thing who features in this teaser.

Werewolf By Night unleashes onto Disney+ October 7!

Marvel Studios’ She-Hulk: Attorney at Law Review | A Lighthearted Legal Comedy

Published

on

You’ll Like Her When She’s Angry She-Hulk: Attorney At Law is a fun lighthearted legal comedy that establishes itself within the MCU. It explores the complicated & comical duality of the character which is relatable & is fully self-aware whilst also breaking the fourth wall.

Synopsis

In Marvel Studios’ “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law,” Emmy® Award-winning actress Tatiana Maslany stars as Jennifer Walters—an attorney who specialises in superhuman-oriented legal cases. She leads the complicated life of a single, 30- something who also happens to be a green 6-foot-7-inch super-powered hulk.

The nine-episode comedy series welcomes a host of MCU vets, including Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/Hulk, Tim Roth as Emil Blonsky/Abomination, and Benedict Wong as Wong, as well as Jameela Jamil, Josh Segarra, Ginger Gonzaga, Jon Bass and Renée Elise Goldsberry. 

Created by Stan Lee and John Buscema, the character was first introduced on Feb. 10, 1980, in “The Savage She-Hulk” comic series. She-Hulk went on to become a member of the Avengers in 1982 and was featured in the “Fantastic Four” series beginning in 1984. Writer/artist John Byrne infused the character with her signature fourth-wall-breaking sense of humour in his “Sensational She-Hulk” comic series that ran from 1989- 1994, and the character has made regular appearances in various forms ever since.

Review

“She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” is the seventh live-action series from Marvel Studios that’s debuting on Disney+ it explores the complicated and comical day-to-day life of Jennifer Walters who must navigate the fallout as well as the dynamics of becoming superpowered- both as herself but also as She-Hulk. We also get to see a commentary of grounded topics being portrayed as she advances into her career while making time for dating, catching up with friends, and going through workplace prejudice, in fact, a lot of the humour comes from these grounded scenarios. Walters learns that balancing her new duality and powers isn’t as easy as it seems. And as I mentioned earlier these aspects of her character as so relatable to the audience watching. She is driven to become a lawyer by a passion to dispense justice and create a more equal society. 

Jen aka She-Hulk is a character that’s full of contradiction, she’s completely fixated on work, and yet has this huge heart. Throughout the series, you’ll see that she loves being She-Hulk, but at the same time resents it. The series perfectly captures Jennifer’s courtroom antics and episode one titled “A Normal Amount of Rage” fully establishes the character and her world through an episodic story. 

Tatiana Maslany is INCREDIBLE! and such perfect casting, Maslany takes the character to a whole new level and makes the role her own. She-Hulk is so different from anything we’ve seen in the MCU, she brings so much humanity and complexity to the character that you no doubt feel for her. I also love that throughout she breaks the fourth wall and interacts with the viewer, she certainly has a sense of humour and I also love that she’s super confident in herself. Ultimately her story is a modern legal comedy about a professional woman in her 30s that’s navigating her professional career and personal life.

Adjusting to Life as a Superhero

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law reveals that Jennifer gains the Hulk’s incredible strength following a serious car accident and her subsequent efforts to help her cousin, who happens to be none other than the Hulk, Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo). Ruffalo returning to his iconic role becomes her unwanted mentor and this series has given us the best version of Smart Hulk that we’ve seen so far. We witness how much of his life has been affected by the Hulk as he doesn’t want his cousin to struggle with her newfound powers like he did, after all, she saw what happened to her cousin and how it ruined his personal life in a lot of ways. So in the beginning, she’s very resistant to them but both quickly realise that her Hulk is very different from Banners. 

I loved the family dynamic the two actors had throughout the first episode. The script is well-written as it perfects sarcasm and banter but also this lovingly antagonistic sort of sibling relationship between them both. The characters have obviously been brought up and grew up very close so it was fun to see them make fun of each other and fight as there’s plenty of action. And for the first time, Ruffalo gets to share the stage with Maslany who’s in the same mocap suit.

Expanding The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Joining Maslany in the cast of the series are a host of talented performers—some portraying fellow attorneys, some acting as clients, plus a few family members, friends and surprises.

Nikki Ramos is Jennifer Walters’s closest confidante and paralegal, providing unending support and most sage advice in both personal and professional matters. Jen can always rely on her fun, sarcastic and always fashion-forward friend who’s not afraid to colour outside the lines. Ginger Gonzaga is another fabulous addition to the show and she fills the character’s stylish shoes gracefully. She is certainly the best friend to have around as through work Jen can get fixated so Nikki consistently reminds her that there is a life outside of her job and to embrace the She-Hulk side of herself, her wardrobe is cool and edgy and she is a paralegal. 

Making an entrance at the end of episode one was Jameela Jamil’s character, Titania a narcissistic social media influencer who also happens to have superhuman strength.

The series also has messages on the responsibility of those with powers and the people that possess them. Do they refrain from using their powers or do they have a duty to protect those without abilities? 

 Cameos, post-credit scenes, and references do feature as “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is extremely self-aware and self-deprecating. 

Verdict

“She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is easily one of my favourite MCU shows, it does a great job at establishing itself within the timeline and truly takes advantage of a universe where anything can happen. We witness superheroes in a grounded world post-blip as the series gives a new perspective, especially from She-Hulk’s point of view. There’s something for everyone to enjoy as it’ll pleasantly surprise people with a smashing start. Can’t wait to see where the next episode goes!.
