While The Avengers movie doesn’t debut in theaters until May 4, 2012, guests may finally be able to experience Marvel at the Walt Disney World Resort. We’ve heard strong rumors that Monorail Red will be getting a makeover with an Avengers wrap in April to run on the Magic Kingdom loop.
Above is our concept rendering of a possible Avengers wrapped monorail. Monorail Red has been spotted backstage with its cab painted black for the supposed Avengers makeover.
This would be the second time a monorail has had a wrap installed to promote a film, the last one being for Tron: Legacy last March. While the “Tron-o-rail” took guests between Epcot and the Ticket and Transportation Center, rumors say the “Aveng-o-rail” or “Herorail” will take guests between Magic Kingdom and the Ticket and Transportation center, possibly due to restrictions with Universal Orlando Resort. Marvel is owned by Disney, but Universal has exclusive rights to use certain characters in East Coast theme parks. The Epcot monorail makes a loop inside Epcot.
Here’s a video of the Tron: Legacy themed monorail, dubbed the Tron-o-rail, in action. Stay tuned to Orlando Attractions Magazine for more information on the Aveng-o-rail.
