In a New York Times article on the future of Disney theme parks around the world, one key piece of information regarding the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California stands out: a first look at concept art for the Spider-Man attraction coming to Disney California Adventure’s soon to come Marvel-themed expansion.

There are no further details regarding what the attraction experience entails. A patent filed in 2017, reported on by Inside the Magic, suggests an innovative pendulum-style swinging vehicle with an overhead track, but whether this will be implemented in the upcoming attraction or not is pure speculation.
Not much has been revealed about what guests can expect from the upcoming land itself either. The only two certain attractions are Guardians of the Galaxy Mission: Breakout and the Spider-Man attraction. It can also be assumed that the Marvel superheroes who meet guests in Hollywood Land will be relocated to the new Marvel area. Oh, and it definitely won’t be called “Marvel Land.”
The expansion will be taking the place of the recently-closed Bug’s Land. Currently, the area is shielded by walls emblazoned with the Stark Industries logo.

The official Disneyland app shows the area formerly known as Bug’s Land (and Bountiful Farms, going back even further) as a blank green plot. Three possible entrances to the Marvel expansion are visible.
