Disney Imagineers have been hard at work figuring out how to make a Marvel theme park happen in Anaheim, California, while IMG has been attempting to do the same in Dubai and now a Justice League ride is apparently headed to Australia.

According to SlashFilm, Marvel is about to make their presence known in the theme park world by bringing a multitude of parks and rides to cities across the globe.

With two new attractions planned in Anaheim and Dubai, Marvel looks to be on the move. MTV reports that Ilyas & Mustafa Galdari (IMG) has broken ground on a Marvel-themed “family entertainment center.” Which they hope will be available to the public by the end of 2013. The plans were actually set back in 2007 for a full fledged theme park, but due to the economy bust in 2008, it’s been scaled down a bit to a still impressive eight indoor acres of IMG’s current 27-acre theme park.

Marvel Adventure will most likely be smaller attractions rather than large rides, such as restaurants, stores, and a large range of entertainment experiences that will feature Marvel characters. Disney will be backing the themed area, but it’s mostly only related by the many licensing agreements that were needed for something like this to occur. Sadly, it will not involve Disney’s well known Imagineers.

This will not be the case with the planned Marvel attraction in Anaheim. Disney is fully involved with the U.S. Marvel theme park and it’s already been mocked up as a model by the Disney design team. Though it hasn’t been officially green-lit, plans call for it to feature “thrill rides and energetic shows aimed at teens and adults,” and they hope that this will be the first of many Marvel theme parks built in the States, similar to how the Harry Potter theme parks look to be spreading around the U.S.

This park will not replace an older piece of the park, it will be a separate piece alongside the two existing areas which consist of original Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. While the Dubai park is a mere 8 acres, the California Marvel area is looking at a massive 100 acre piece of land, which is near the Toy Story parking lot, but this is simply where the mock up has the park and details could obviously be changed once plans are finalized.

As of now, it’s still in the early stages. Disney is hoping that their relaunch of California Adventure is successful and then they will decide if they wish to move forward with the Marvel area. One has to imagine that with Marvel being such a big part of the average consumer’s life now, that they would jump at using their wealth of licensing abilities to make such an attractive theme park.

Justice League is getting some love as well according to SHH, as Warner Bros. is coming up with some ideas of their own which could result in a ride called Justice League: Alien Invasion 3D, which is already set to come to Australia in September. This will be one epic adventure ride, which lets the riders have an experience with DC’s comic heroes (Batman, Superman, etc…) and help them fight against “millions of evil alien spores.”

As you wait in line to get on the ride, you’ll get introduced to a visual aide which will fill you in with the story like a news anchor might, which should make the wait time a bit more manageable. When it’s your turn to jump on the ride, you’ll hop into one of eight alien crafts and make your way through the eight enormous 3D screens to fight off the alien foes.

Looks like it’s not only the U.S. who’s gone crazy for comic heroes and we look forward to seeing how these many incredible ideas come to fruition.

Nickelodeon debuts action-packed ‘Legends of the Hidden Temple’ trailer at SDCC

The brand new trailer features tons of nods to the original 90s game show!

4:33 pm EDT, July 23, 2016

Get ready for a serious dose of nostalgia, 90s kids! Nickelodeon just premiered the trailer for the upcoming Legends of the Hidden Temple movie at San Diego Comic-Con and you’re definitely going to want to check it out!

The upcoming made-for-TV movie centers around three siblings who find themselves immersed in the temple after breaking away from a jungle tour. Once inside, they discover all the legends they’ve grown up hearing about the mysterious temple are actually real.

Being trapped in the temple itself may sound cool at the beginning, but the siblings will soon learn that getting out may be tougher than they originally anticipated. They’ll have to follow the map and survive the Temple’s many hidden rooms if they want to make it out unscathed.

Check out the first trailer for Legends of the Hidden Temple below!

Fans of the original game show are sure to recognize quite a few of the most iconic aspects taken from the beloved 90s series. Olmec aside, the first action-packed trailer includes mentions of the steps of knowledge, the shrine of the silver monkey, and more— They’ve even managed to slip in mentions of some of the old teams contestant were able to play on when competing on the original game show!

The upcoming Legends of the Hidden Temple movie reunites Kirk Fogg (original TV how host) and Dee Bradley Baker (original voice of Olmec), and additionally stars Isabela Moner, Colin Critchley, and Jet Jurgensmeyer.

Hot off the heels of the Wonder Woman trailer DC has released our first look at the art for Justice League as well as the first trailer!

It’s a very exciting day to be a DC movies fan! After debuting the Wonder Woman trailer earlier today, DC surprised everyone with the first official Justice League trailer which has been simultaneously released publicly during its debut at San Diego Comic-Con. It should be noted that the video, posted on Director Zack Snyder’s Twitter account, includes a title card at the beginning denoting that this video was made specifically for fans at Comic-Con. “The following footage was prepared by the filmmakers as a special look for fans in attendance at Comic-Con 2016.”

The “trailer” (if that’s what we’re calling it) doesn’t give away much about the plot of the movie, however. It features Bruce Wayne checking in and recruiting Cyborg, Aquaman and The Flash – the three of which weren’t as heavily featured in this year’s Batman V Superman.

One of the more thrilling parts of the video is when Bruce Wayne shows up to meet The Flash and throws a Batarang at him. We get to see the slow motion perspective of The Flash while a Batarang whizzes by his face, with him ultimately realizing who has just appeared before him. Before Bruce even has a second to sell him on joining the Justice League, he’s interrupted. “Stop right there. I’m in,” says The Flash.

After the mixed reviews of Batman V Superman from earlier this year, it looks like Justice League might have taken some notes from the massive success of Deadpool’s light-hearted but serious comic book movie template. It already feels like this ensemble cast will lend itself to making up some ground in terms of likability. Ezra Miller’s The Flash is easily the “you-gotta-love-this-kid” character based on his one scene alone. Meanwhile, Aquaman will appeal to those burly, rugged Wolverine style fans. Both character types were missing from the sometimes confusing Batman V Superman.

Check out the full photo of the Justice League featuring our first detailed looks of The Flash, Cyborg, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman together in one place.

We still have a while before we get to hit theaters for Justice League. The superhero sure-to-be blockbuster is set to hit theaters November 17, 2017.

WB debuted a new trailer for Wonder Woman on Saturday morning at San Diego Comic-Con.

Gal Gadot and the cast of Wonder Woman introduced the new trailer, which offers a massive new look at the first female-led super hero movie (during this new wave of super hero madness, anyway). Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor and Gadot’s Diana Prince seem to have some great chemistry. And unsurprisingly, Wonder Woman gets up to a lot of ass-kicking in the three minute preview. Perhaps one of the coolest moments is when she fends off a lot of fire power, and one of the funniest moments comes at the end, when Diana equates Steve’s secretary to a slave. Watch below:

The movie is directed by Patty Jenkins, who has clearly done an amazing job bringing Wonder Woman to life with Gadot.

A new poster for Wonder Woman was also released, finally revealing her (colorful!) costume:

Wonder Woman hits theaters June 2, 2017. The film’s synopsis reads:

Wonder Woman hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
