Marvel has finally started taking over Walt Disney's theme parks, Fool contributor Tim Beyers says in the following video.
How so? A new Thor exhibit is now live at Disneyland. Granted, it won't be a ride like the planned "Iron Man Experience" coming to Disneyland Hong Kong. There's still benefit to reminding visitors that Thor and the Avengers are now Disney characters, Tim argues.
For investors, the good news is that the House of Mouse is getting aggressive when it comes to bringing Marvel characters into its theme parks and resorts, which, as a group, generate close to $13 billion in revenue annually. Adding more Star Wars rides could boost that total, Tim says.
