Disneyland’s new Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! offers clues to the existence of Sub-Mariner and Beta Ray Bill in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Opening to the public on Saturday at Disney California Adventure Park, the attraction transforms The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror into the Collector’s fortress, and showcases the extensive collection of flora and fauna maintained by Taneleer Tivan (played by Benicio del Toro). IGN.com reports that as visitors line up, the see several familiar artifacts from the Marvel Cinematic Universe — an Ultron drone from Avengers: Age of Ultron, a Nova Corps uniform from Guardians of the Galaxy, etc. — and a few that haven’t yet appeared on screen yet hint at interesting possibilities.
The first air a pair of “mysterious artifacts” “found at the bottom of the Terran ocean.” “Very little is known of the civilization the created them,” reads the description, undoubtedly leading Marvel fans to conclude Atlantis, the underwater kingdom ruled by Prince Namor.
The second is a “Asgardian War Hammer” that looks much like the one wielded by the alien Beta Ray Bill, who in Marvel comics was worthy of lifting Mjolnir. As a result, the hammer, known as Stormbreaker, was given by Odin to Bill. The hammer on display is accompanied by this descrption: “Originated in the dwarven forge on Nidavellir, this finely crafted object is made of the powerful stone, Uru.”
Deep inside his fortress-like collection, the mysterious Taneleer Tivan (aka The Collector) is displaying his newest acquisitions, the Guardians of the Galaxy. They are trapped in customized display cases, suspended over a vast abyss. Unbeknownst to their unscrupulous captor, the intrepid Rocket has escaped and is enlisting the Collector’s VIP guests for help. Guests board a gantry lift, which launches them into a chaotic and hilarious adventure as they join Rocket in an attempt to break his fellow Guardians out of captivity.
Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! features six randomized scenarios, each choreographed to a different song, including “Hit Me With Your Best Shot,” “I Want You Back” and “Burning Love.”
