Will Marvel Experience exhibition include the Fantastic Four?

Yahoo Movies announced there's a new show being launched called the Marvel Experience, an interactive tour in Scottsdale, Arizona featuring a busload of Marvel heroes. But reading the article, there's at least one group of heroes absent, and with the way Marvel's been going about their business lately, are bound to be remain that way:
It might be a while before we see Iron Man, Captain America, and their Avenger brethren sharing the big screen with fellow Marvel superheroes Spider-Man and Wolverine… if that ever happens at all. That’s because Disney currently owns the film rights to Marvel’s The Avengers, while Sony claims Spider-Man and Fox keeps its claws on Wolverine/X-Men. Getting all those studios to collaborate could be a gargantuan, if not impossible, task.

Spidey and Wolverine will assemble with The Avengers, however, in the upcoming interactive tour The Marvel Experience, and we’ve got an exclusive look at how all 13 originally designed heroes will look in animated form above. In addition to Iron Man, Cap, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow, Spider-Man and Wolverine, the lineup also features recognizable characters like S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Nick Fury and Maria Hill, as well as heroes who have yet to appear on screen: The Vision (who will debut in Avengers: Age of Ultron), Iron First (who will be the subject of a Netflix series next year), and fan favorites Black Panther and She-Hulk (both of whom are still trying to lock up movie deals).

"This is the only place you’ll see them together, and we’re proud of that," says Rick Licht, CEO of Hero Ventures, the entertainment company behind the tour. Licht and his team take special pride in The Vision, especially, having locked him in for The Marvel Experience before it was announced the character would play an pivotal part of next summer’s Age of Ultron. “We had him first,” Licht says laughing. “We wanted him all to ourselves.”
But no Fantastic Four, I take? Curious they don't mention the FF's movie rights are still owned by Fox. Honestly, this tour is not complete without the FF's inclusion, but hey, it's their mistake. And that's not the only one they made: what about the transformation of Nick Fury into a baddie in the pages of Original Sin? I guess that's not going to be part of the tour? (Yahoo also made a mistake: they put the letter R in the 2nd part of Iron Fist's name.) On the other hand, interesting that Wolverine's making an appearance, despite the miniseries bumping him off! Proof they don't intend to keep him buried for long.

If the FF are barred from making appearances in this tour, somebody's bound to notice, and it should be discouraging how Marvel's declared such a useless mandate. Similarly, somebody's bound to wonder why they'd have so little respect for Nick Fury.

Overall I am glad I went and my kids were glad they were taken. However I highly doubt I will return next year if it comes back to town. The cost is too high for what you receive and the lines are to long for what you are waiting for.

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
