    The Marvel contract applies to any Marvel character present not just in the park, but also their related "families" in their own universes. I'm pretty sure Miles Morales falls under the Spider-Man banner, and Spider-Gwen definitely fits the bill as well.

    Nah. Miles and Gwen would be Disney like Guardians IMO. Weren’t really related during time of contract as they are both recent creations.

    But not all the Guardians are available though....why do you think they only have Starlord and Gamora appearances for the upcoming Epcot night party and none of the others. (I know for a fact Drax and Mantis fall under families that can't be used at all per Marvel's own wiki site)

    It doesn't matter.

    The contract is for Spider-Man and related families, not for Peter Parker and friends.

    Film rights still belong to Universal for Namor but Marvel officially can use Namor in the MCU according to statements by Kevin Feige. It seems like a deal was made.

    Are you sure that the deal isn't just like the one Universal has for Hulk? For Hulk, they have film distribution rights, but nothing is stopping Marvel from using the character in other capacities like they have been. What you're describing sounds similar.

    Back in 2011, he said Namor can't be Hulk can then its been ongoing changes. I think its finally changed and a deal was made but I wonder what Universal will get.

    To be fair, this is probably pretty much what most western Anime cosplay looks like to people in Asia... ;-)
