4 Reasons Disneyland Paris’ Marvel Summer of Super Heroes Is The Ultimate Mash-Up
Mickey, meet Captain America...
And while the MCU has continued to go from strength-to-strength, an array of animated series have tickled our fanboy/girl bone, and Marvel merch has been so out of this world that even Thanos has a secret stash of Groot plushies on Titan, it’s been Disney’s theme parks that have housed the most potential.
And after nerd-pleasing teasers (the Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout! Ride in the US, and an array of colourful character actors in the parks), this summer sees the first proper kick-off of Marvel-tastic mayhem, with Disneyland Paris’ Marvel Summer of Super Heroes.

Here’s what you can expect…
1, A live-action show that is the ultimate fan-gasm
What do you get when you combine one of the biggest LED screens in Europe, incredible acrobatics, drones, special effects, and Iron Man, Thanos, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, Spider-Man, Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Nebula and the Hulk?
One kick-ass live-action show for all the family, AKA Marvel: Super Heroes United.
Long story short, Thanos has turned the Avengers against each other using mind control. Cue a host of elaborate, expertly choreographed fight scenes, twisty-turny plot developments, and a show that is guaranteed to keep parents as pleased as the kids.
2. Get a selfie with Captain America
Because if this isn’t on your bucket list, then what the hell are you doing with your life?
Wander around the park, and you’ll get the chance to meet Steve Rogers himself for a handshake, a pec gaze, and a selfie.
3. Or dance-off against Star-Lord and Gamora
The only thing as grin-inducing as the Guardians of the Galaxy themselves? The soundtrack to both movies, which have kickstarted karaoke revivals all over the globe.
So it makes perfect sense to have a live dance-off in the park, where you can watch Star-Lord and Gamora banter, bicker and boogie against each other – and, if you’re tempted to bust a groove, get involved yourself.
4. See Loki get his ass whupped in the flesh
Stark Expo presents: Energy for Tomorrow! is an open-air show that sees Black Widow, Thor and Spider-Man face-off against a typically nefarious Loki, as he attempts to steal an arc reactor from one Mr. Tony Stark.
