Hong Kong Disneyland Marvel Expansion

A friend passed this along today.

I'm not buying it until anything official is said, but can anyone confirm/support this?

Hong Kong's daily English-language newspaper The Standard had a story about this a few days ago. It's official.

Correct, Universal has exclusive theme park rights to Marvel east of the Mississippi River and I believe in Japan. So Disney can't use Marvel in Orlando or Tokyo.

Disney has a park in Tokyo, not in Osaka. But I believe only Universal can use Marvel characters at a theme park anywhere in Japan.
