More epic Super Hero adventures are coming to Disney Parks around the world!
Highly anticipated new experiences at Disneyland Resort, Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong Disneyland will soon invite guests to become part of a bigger universe filled with epic heroes and adventures, and today we’re sharing a sneak peek! Developed in partnership with Marvel Studios and Marvel Themed Entertainment, these three new areas will champion the next generation of heroes.
At Disneyland Resort, the new Super Hero-themed land will begin recruiting guests in 2020, with even more new experiences to follow. The Guardians of the Galaxy will be joined by Spider-Man and the Avengers in what will become a completely immersive Super Hero universe, furthering the evolution of Disney California Adventure park. This new land will be anchored by the popular Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!, in the adjacent space that is currently occupied by “a bug’s land.” “It’s Tough to Be a Bug” closed March 19 to make way for this new heroic experience; the rest of the land will close in late summer.
As part of the transformative multi-year expansion announced for Disneyland Paris, the new Marvel-themed area at Walt Disney Studios Park will include a reimagined attraction where riders will team up with Iron Man and their favorite Avengers on a hyper-kinetic adventure in 2020. This will follow an epic experience launching this summer, when Disneyland Paris hosts Marvel Summer of Super Heroes from June 10 to September 30. Favorite heroes will take the stage for a brand new, live-action super-production featuring cutting-edge special effects and spectacular projections.
Multi-year expansion plans are also underway at Hong Kong Disneyland, including a new themed area that will include an exciting attraction where guests team up with Ant-Man and The Wasp. This new attraction will join the Iron Man Experience, which opened in 2017 and is already the most popular attraction at the resort.
Join your favorite heroes soon for these and more epic adventures at Disney Parks around the world!

New issues of MOON GIRL AND DEVIL DINOSAUR are set to introduce Lunella Lafayette to the real world!
For the covers of issues #32-#36, series artist Natacha Bustos has teamed up with photographers Rachel Orlow and Judy Stephens for a mixed media approach to comics. Illustrating over photos of a few New York City locales (including Marvel HQ!), the artist brings an entirely new flavor to the covers of Brandon Montclare and Bustos’ MOON GIRL AND DEVIL DINOSAUR.
“The next arc of MOON GIRL AND DEVIL DINOSAUR, titled ‘Save Our School,’ is shaping up to be our biggest yet—with ramifications for the larger Marvel Universe as well,” says series editor Chris Robinson. “We wanted to signify Lunella’s expansion into this larger world by dropping her into the real world with these incredible photo covers!”
Flip through a few of the covers—as well as the unedited photos they’re based on—right here!
“In the beginning, I worked with some photos from my last visit to New York and started sketching basic ideas for the cover to let the team see the idea,” explains Bustos. “From then on, the brainstorming was continuous, especially on Chris’s side, who came up with great concepts to introduce the new characters—like Princess, who will have a very relevant role in the plot, or the not-so-new Wrecking Crew. The process of creating each cover ended up being very collaborative.”
Marvel Vice President & Creative Executive of New Media Ryan Penagos—an unassuming figure on the cover of issue #33—says, “When Chris approached me for the cover I feigned shyness, batted my eyelashes, and said yes. When he told me it was for MOON GIRL AND DEVIL DINOSAUR, I probably made a slightly uncomfortable noise of delight because Devil Dinosaur is one of my favorites and the Moon Girl series has been so good. And, ultimately, I’m just happy they didn’t edit out my mustache.”
And on the image she snapped of Ryan, photographer Judy Stephens says, “I thought about editing out the mustache, but decided against it at the last minute. Ryan, you’re welcome.”
“More and more people are becoming fans of MOON GIRL AND DEVIL DINOSAUR, and we believe that we should strive to offer them an increasingly fresh and surprising comic,” summarizes Bustos, “It’s been an exciting challenge to bring these covers to life!”
Catch the photography covers of MOON GIRL AND DEVIL DINOSAUR, by writer Brandon Montclare and artist Natacha Bustos, starting this summer!

Okoye, leader of the Dora Milaje, isn't ready to assemble.
The Black Panther may reign over Wakanda, but the Dora Milaje are the true protectors of the resplendent nation. As the general of the royal armed forces, actress Danai Gurira plays the role of Okoye, the Dora Milaje’s fierce and cautious leader. Speaking from the set of Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War,” Gurira talked about Okoye’s loyalty and the roles of strong women in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
As seen in Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther,” Wakanda was isolated from the rest of the world for thousands of years. Just as they opened their doors, “Infinity War” brings the Avengers all together onto Black Panther’s playing field. To have the warriors meet the super heroes was exciting for Gurira, but brought up different feelings for her character, “I’m excited for all the connections she can and might make—through what she’s about to go through with these warriors and these Avengers, these super heroes. [Okoye’s] more cautious about that.”
Gurira continued, “She’s hasn’t been excited about outsiders. You’ll see that in a very clear way in the movie.”
As a deep traditionalist with the weight of protecting Wakanda and its King, leading the Dora Milaje, and adhering to Wakanda’s traditions and structures, all responsibility lies solely on Okoye’s shoulders. “The vocation of being a Dora is you’re learning how to be one from quite a young age,” revealed Gurira. “Her entire vocation has been to maintain this nation.”
These responsibilities and traditional values are what drives her apprehension of the Avengers. “[Okoye’s] always thinking about how many things can go wrong and how much she can control what could go wrong before it goes wrong,” explained Gurira. “There’s not a lot of control that she can have over something that’s coming that’s this massive. But that’s where her caution is. That’s where her concerns lie. It’s, of course, in her gut.”
The changes Wakanda faces such as the opening of the borders and revealing themselves to the world is what Gurira’s character must grapple with as we enter “Infinity War.” Gurira acknowledged the Dora will be tested more than ever before, “This is one of the biggest threats they’ve dealt with.” At the end of the day, she’s led by her King and goes by his decision.
Gurira was acquainted with her co-stars before the filming of “Black Panther,” which lead to a comfortability on set. The sisterhood continued on the set of “Avengers: Infinity War.” On her relationship with Angela Bassett, “I’ve always really adored Ms. Bassett and she’s always been so kind and gracious to me every time I’ve been around her. It was really beautiful, actually.” As for Gurira’s sisterly relationship with Lupita Nyong’o, “Lupita and I go way back, and we just worked together on my play, ‘Eclipsed.’ We are very much [like] close sisters — it was very much balancing off each other and supporting each other, and our thoughts and collaborations and how we were figuring out the language and everything. We were making sure we had fun because I’m the person that needs to be encourage-minded to have fun, and she made sure I did that.”
As for the King’s sister Shuri, played by Letitia Wright, Gurira was familiar with her from her London play as well, “I loved her from the second I saw her…saying, ‘This girl’s got fire.’ I loved her since then, so getting to be in this movie with her, it was amazing.”
The familial feeling continued off-camera with the cast spending time together solidifying their successful on-screen chemistry. “We had a good time together,” said Gurira. “Supportive, fun, lots of going out on the weekend, lots of bowling, going to [get] Nigerian food, partying. Mr. Addison [Henderson] and Chadwick made sure people always had a good time. It was actually a really awesome family of women and men. It was a great sisterhood. We took a lot of care of each other.”
To be a part of a massive Marvel film with so many female characters is something that spoke to Gurira, “It’s really thrilling. I’m insanely thankful to be alive at the moment I am alive, and I don’t take it for granted that so many women before me have had to navigate and push for more representation, and I get to benefit from the fruits of their labor. I’ve seen that evolution before I started acting to now. You can feel that, the shift, and it is a really exciting thing when you see there is a lot of attention paid to the position and the contribution to the female characters.”
“Avengers: Infinity War” opens in theaters on April 27. Get tickets on Fandango now! Stay tuned to Marvel.com, follow @Avengers on Twitter, and Like “The Avengers” on Facebook for the latest on the Avengers as it develops!

This Asgardian warrior brings her sword skills to the hit mobile game this week!
Not enough awesome Asgardians in your roster yet? Well, the Hela-fighting heroine from Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok,” Valkyrie, slashes her way into “Marvel Puzzle Quest” this week. Armed with a keen blade and some serious attitude, she’ll make mincemeat of her foes in no time. D3 Go! Senior Producer Josh Austin was kind enough to break down the vicious Valkyrie, so if you need more info, look no further!
Marvel.com: Valkyrie’s just a tad late to the “Ragnarok” party but I’m glad she finally gets to show off her sword skills in game. I imagine the team’s excited too!
Josh Austin: We are definitely excited to bring Valkyrie (Asgardian Warrior) into Marvel Puzzle Quest as our latest 4-Star character. The Marvel movies keep getting better and “Thor: Ragnarok” has a plethora of great characters! The team has wanted to bring in Valkyrie for a while, so they were happy to finally bring her out and right now is a good time with the home entertainment release of “Ragnarok.”
Marvel.com: We already have a super bad lady sword-slinger in Gamora, what’d you all do to make sure Valkyrie feels different from the green-skinned Guardian?
Josh Austin: Gamora is definitely a tough assassin, but she’s focused on destroying her target and moving to the next. But Valkyrie actually has an attack that will move to the next target if the first target dies during her onslaught! Valkyrie also deals extra damage if the enemy team doesn’t have AP, so teaming her up with AP stealers is a different strategy than pairing Gamora with people that help gain control over purple tiles.
Marvel.com: Actually lets dig into her kit. How does Valkyrie bring the pain?
Josh Austin: Her first power is called Dragonfang Fury and it costs 11 Red AP. The ability will deal damage 3 consecutive times or 5 times at power level 5. If this ability downs an enemy, remaining attacks will continue to the next enemy. Each individual attack can be modified by Friendly Strike tiles.
Her second attack is called Bounty Hunter and it’s a Black Passive power. For this ability, she creates a Black Countdown tile that targets a random enemy. If that enemy is downed or takes a certain amount of damage before the Countdown tile expires, this tile is removed and the player gets 4 AP in their strongest color while destroying 4 AP in the enemy’s strongest color.
Her last Power is called The Best Defense… and it’s a passive Yellow ability. For this power, she protects her allies from evil by fighting back even harder. Whenever an ally takes a specific amount of damage, create Yellow Strike tiles. As long as the enemy has less then 8 AP in a color, friendly matches in that color deal extra damage.
Marvel.com: I love The Best Defense… ability! Quick clarification, if an enemy were to use a team strike ability, say Khamala Khan’s Embiggened Bash, would Valkyrie create 4 Strike Tiles?
Josh Austin: That’s correct! Her The Best Defense… ability will fire twice and create 4 Strike Tiles if both her teammates are hit at the same time. If you’re expecting some heavy team damage from the enemy, Valkyrie’s an awesome pick to make the most of a bad situation.
Marvel.com: And who does she fight best with? What kind of teams should we be picking her into?
Josh Austin: Valkyrie is strong with characters that create Strike tiles like Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers), Blade (Modern), Punisher (Max) and Iron Fist (Danny Rand).
Marvel.com: When do we get to play her for ourselves?
Josh Austin: Valkyrie is available this Thursday, March 22, and she will have a “S.H.I.E.L.D. Training Event” between March 22 and 29. Her store will be called “Valkyrie & Friends” between March 22 and 30. Her release debut is the Simulator that runs from March 22 and 26. Her featured event is “Thick as Thieves” that runs between March 25 and 30. And finally her Versus Tournament titled “Scrapper 142” starts on March 25 and ends March 28.
Pick up Valkyrie here and stay tuned to Marvel.com for more “Marvel Puzzle Quest” news and interviews.
Where there is one, there is another.
We’re three months out from the series debut of Freeform original, “Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger.”
