Bob Iger Hints at Future MARVEL Black Panther Attractions for Disney Parks
Disney CEO Bob Iger hinted at a future Black Panther attraction while speaking with Wall Street investors on Monday, The Hollywood Reporter said.
“No. We haven’t had a chance to build a ride, though I’m sure there are people who are working on it,” Said Iger about Black Panther attractions in the Disney Parks.
A walk-around Black Panther character is already at Disneyland, generating hour-long lines, according to Iger. The Marvel film is a smash hit in theaters, and has generated over $700 million in box office sales in just over a week, according to Box Office Mojo.
Iger said the movie is “an important moment in culture,” and told investors at a conference Monday that they can expect more Black Panther merchandise to come out by the year’s end. “I pretty much guarantee that this coming Halloween and even Christmas, you know you’ll be seeing a lot of Black Panther merchandise,” Iger said.
