A crush of Marvel superhero attractions are coming to multiple Disney parks around the world, the Walt Disney Company announced Tuesday.

As early as 2020 in the California resort, “The Guardians of the Galaxy” will join forces with Iron Man, Spider-Man and other characters from “The Avengers” in rides, attractions and live programming.

“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,” Disney said in a statement.

By 2020, both Anaheim and Paris will have synergized dreamworlds: the former will hinge around “The Guardians of the Galaxy” franchise and its existing ride Mission: BREAKOUT!, which lives in the Disney California Adventure park adjacent to Disneyland. The latter, better known as Euro Disney, will get an Iron Man attraction “where riders will team up with Iron Man and their favorite Avengers on a hyper-kinetic adventure.”

The Paris expansion will follow this summer’s “Avengers” roadshow at the location, the Marvel Summer of Super Heroes, where characters “take the stage for a brand new, live-action super-production featuring cutting-edge special effects.”

Ant-Man and The Wasp will lead a “multi-year expansion” at Disney’s Hong Kong Park.

You may want to buy your Disney season tickets while you can lock in a good rate — by the time you’re taking a selfie with Thor and Loki in 2020, the “Star Wars” themed attraction will have been open for a year in California.

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 Super 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!
