Can he swing from a WEB?

Peter Parker is getting a new suit in the immediate future — but you won’t see it in the comics or Avengers: Endgame.

The new suit is part of an immersive, interactive Marvel experience coming to Disney’s California Adventure in Anaheim and Disneyland Paris. Dubbed Tony Stark’s Worldwide Engineering Brigade (or ... WEB for short), the attraction will feature classic characters like Peter Parker and Tony Stark, but will also give guests the chance to jump into the Marvel Universe as well.

Described by Scott Drake, creative executive of the Marvel Global Portfolio, as utilizing “a blend of never-before-seen technology and practical effects,” the attraction expands the MCU’s story to include WEB and a new Spidey suit. The design comes from Ryan Meinerding, head of visual development at Marvel Studios, who has translated classic comic character costumes for live-action renderings on nearly all of the MCU films.

“It has been the highlight of my career to design all of Spider-Man’s suits for the most recent films. Bringing him to life through Tony Stark’s capable design aesthetic was a true joy, but working with the Walt Disney Imagineering team to develop a look for Spidey that reflects the innovation of a team of young geniuses really brings him to a new level,” Meinerding explained in a Disney Parks blog post. “And knowing that park guests can get up close to that suit and really take in all the detail the astounding Imagineers packed into it means that we have truly brought a new version of the character to life.”

Disney has not released the opening dates for Tony Stark’s Worldwide Engineering Brigade, but a host of other Marvel-themed adventures are coming to the parks over the course of the next year: Disneyland Hong Kong already boasts the Stark Expo as well as Ant-Man and The Wasp: Nano Battle!; Disney’s California Adventure features the Guardians of the Galaxy themed-attraction, Mission: Breakout!.
