    On the site that must not be named, someone who tends to be credible with Disney info is reporting Marvel is coming to WDW for realz this time...so i guess our hopes for all those updates are back to being dead?

    Unless it's GotG, nothing else is coming to WDW.

    It's a rumor I've heard before at DCA, along with a GotG version of RnR. The fact Disney can't figure out how to create something new is hilariously sad and creatively bankrupt. It's so so so sad. And it'll probably cost $600 million.

    That being said, I highly doubt this will happen. And if it does man I'll supply the popcorn and follow WDWRAH, BuenaVista28, Schmoofy, et all on twitter to see the response.

    I really want a GOTG ride to happen, but good God that sounds like an awful idea.

    Based on who is saying it, it sounds like a done deal of going to happen. This leads to my question about Universal's response to this. Will they increase spending and upgrades in the Marvel land to counter Disney's horrible idea to show that they have Marvel and pull a larger marketshare?

    Guardians of the Galaxy replacing Tower of Terror?

    Wow. There's ideas I hate. And then there's THAT.

    Well when it comes to anything Marvel at WDW, GotG is really the only plausible IP due to the killer contract Uni made with Marvel.

    If a GotG overlay was to happen, while as lazy as it would overall be, a overlay of RnRC would make the most sense. Get launched into space, play the Awesome Mix on the on board audio, it can easily fit.

    Now this rumor of overlaying ToT...yet keeping the hotel theme from the 1930's. That's a new one in terms of insane things said on a Disney forum.

    If (and that's a mighty big IF) this actually happens, this would easily take the cake as the dumbest overlay idea because it just doesn't make any lick of sense. (As much as SGE is one of the worst overlays, at least I could see the direction they were trying to go in.) However, there would be a teeny, tiny part of me that would be looking forward to it since it could be a spectacular trainwreck. It would hurt like hell because of what it's replacing, but I wouldn't be able to take my eyes off it.

    But seriously, if you're gonna' do a overlay, the best ride to overlay for this IP is RnRC.

    1) Even if Disney does this, they can't market Marvel, so they're not going to change anything

    2) Disney would be destroying one of their most iconic and beloved attractions. This would anger as many people as it would excite.

    3) I think Universal would get a kick out of Disney cutting off its nose to spite its face.

    Anyway, can't wait for that SLoP overlay of the Amazing Adventures of Spiderman. What? I mean, if we're ruining beloved attractions with extraordinarily random overlays...

    Just read the thread over there. This sounds like such a terrible idea. How does the ToT ride system work for guardians? Makes 0 sense.

    Pardon my French, but that marvel rumor is one of the most vile pieces of crap that I've seen out out on ANY forum.

    Not to deny it though, I'm thoroughly enjoying the meltdowns

    Also... if this DOES happen... I'm pretty sure 90% of people will stop asking for full Marvel rights at WDW.

    This is just dumb. I am hoping this is just a rumor that has no actual fact behind it, because this would be bad if Disney even actually considered this.

    DL people are saying it may definitely be happening at DCA. So this sounds like it could be real

    Never going to happen. Tower of Terror is iconic, and Disney is currently working on a big screen ToT movie. Why waste that by replacing the ride?

    The middle ground between light and shadow...
    This is one of the most disgusting rumors I've heard in a long, long time. If true, Disney management have truly lost their minds, and are about to sacrifice one of the most beautifully-themed attractions the company ever built.

    If you want GOTG in the park, then, I don't know... maybe BUILD A NEW RIDE!

    That's in the early stages of development. Easy to shut it down. Plus that'd make 1/2 at the BO that GOTG did
