    Universal never “used” Thor either, so why’s he exiled to Disneyland?

      You need to read the Marvel contract. It covers characters used in Islands of Adventure (Spiderman, Hulk, X-Men, Captain America) and any characters that would be in their “family” of characters…which means the Avengers can’t be used by Disney in Florida or Japan because Universal has used some of the Avengers characters (which makes the others out of bounds for Disney). Because Thor is an Avenger and is part of the same “family” as Hulk and Captain America and others, then Disney can’t use Thor in Florida’s parks and they can’t use anything that is labeled “Marvel”.

      So Disney is being smart and developing things like Guardians without using the Marvel name on it. I think Guardians will end up in Tomorrowland at some point.

        Uh, might want to check the final-release poster, the M-word’s pretty clearly there.
        Here, think it’s more a case that the two WERE just here to Be Awesome, and not make “official” M&G’s…Which is what Universal warns against.
        (They can meet if they’re just shmoozing at a party, but not if it’s an attraction with roped lines and listed on the park map.)

    I love the Villains event, and I am glad to see it is a hard target event. I know that I was there last year (9/13/13) and it was not a hard ticket event and was terrible as it was overcrowded, unorganized, but still had some neat things. Hard ticket event is awesome. I was excited to see that the newest Marvel characters made an appearance. I am more than sure Disney knows what they are doing, and hope they find a way to get us more in the FL with their Marvel property. But since I ma not a lawyer, and will not clam to be one after reading some documents found by Google, or Wikipedia.
