Marvel Superheroes Theme Park is a future 100-acre (0.40 km2) Marvel indoor[1] theme park in Dubailand that was expected to open in November 2014. This park was originally announced in late 2007 by United-Emirate Based Al Ahli group theme park company and Marvel Entertainment. On August 31, 2009, The Walt Disney Company bought Marvel for $4.24 billion and now controls the theme park rights to the company's characters.[2] Since the Universal Studios parks have Marvel-based attractions at Universal's Islands of Adventure Park in Florida and at Universal Studios Japan in Osaka, Japan, Universal owns the rights to have Marvel attractions East of the Mississippi River in the United States and in Japan, but not elsewhere.
