On February 27, 2018, Chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company Robert A. Iger announced plans for a 2 billion euro, multi-year expansion for Disneyland Paris alongside French President Emmanuel Macron at the Palais de l’Elysée in Paris. The new development will include a transformation of the Walt Disney Studios Park, adding three new areas are Avengers Campus Paris, Arendelle: World of Frozen and Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, along with multiple new attractions and live entertainment experiences.
Disneyland Paris announced plans for a new Marvel-themed attraction which would open at the Walt Disney Studios, part of the new Marvel area development. In June 2021, the resort opened Disney’s Hotel New York: The Art of Marvel, a reimagining of Disney’s Hotel New York that showcases the inspiring worlds of Iron Man, The Avengers, and Spider-Man, among others. In summer 2018, the Marvel Summer of Super Heroes seasonal event took place at Disneyland Paris, where guests could meet their favorite heroes and experience new live entertainment.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, work on the area was temporarily halted unto early 2021, thus postponing the opening date from summer 2021 to early 2022.
