In the new UOR promo, the only scenes with legalize at the bottom are for those that include Marvel Superhero Island. It states “Universal’s Islands of Adventure. I wonder why.

could it have something to do with the fact it’s the only brand also represented in another theme park?

That does seem a little odd. You'd expect something similar for MIB, Simpsons, Potter and Transformers.

That would be my guess

I was recently a guest on Dizney Coast to Coast to talk about Disney properties, specifically Marvel and Simpsons, at Universal Parks.

Finally had a moment to listen to this. Great job @Brian G.

I think the other person on the podcast kind of summed up a lot of Disney fans by wanting Marvel out of Universal and into Disney without really giving any sort of reason why.

Given the recent rumor on Spider-Man @ USJ, I want to ask (as I think I don't see it pointed out), was Japan's contract for The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man (and subsequently the Spider-Family for Japan as a whole) done at the same time as the MCA contract? Or was that done at a later point?

USJ is also covered by the 1994 Marvel-Universal contract. It would be bewildering if there's a separate agreement between USJ and Marvel regarding Marvel properties.
