We knew it was coming sooner or later. Hong Kong Financial Secretary official John Tsang announced that the Park (which is mainly owned by the city instead of Disney) has announced plans to bring the characters of the Marvel universe to its Hong Kong theme park.
The new “Marvel Heroes” land-addition to the Park is hoping to increase attedence and profits, both of which have been lacking since the Park’s opening in 2005 according to the Wall Street Journal.
While a specific construction and opening date has yet to be announced by even Disney themselves, we know that it will be soon as their 2013 fiscal year budget has set aside the funds for such a “Marvel-ous” place.
