Marvel-themed land to open in 2020 at Disney's California Adventure Park

SAN DIEGO — Hot on the heels of one hotly-anticipated opening in Anaheim, California, this year, Disney's California Adventure will begin its massive superhero recruitment effort.

The park's Marvel-themed expansion is set to begin "recruitment" as it opens in 2020, according to the park. A specific date has yet to be released.

California Adventure's Marvel attractions will open with "interconnected stories" between the Anaheim theme park, Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong Disneyland. In Hong Kong, the action has already begun with Iron Man and Ant-Man attractions.

While California Adventure's massive superhero expansion will hit sometime next year, guests can already experience some Marvel magic at "Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: BREAKOUT!" at the park.

Once off the ground, Anaheim guests will be able to "suit up" alongside Spider-Man and the new Worldwide Engineering Brigade into the park, or "WEB." The land will pack an "immersive, interactive experience" using a blend of a "cutting-edge interface" and "practical effects."

The land takes over the park's former "A Bug's Land" area.

California Adventure's Marvel attractions are set to open a year following Disneyland's massive "Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge" debut in May.
