When Will We See Marvel Character Rides at Disney's U.S. Parks?

Iron Man is descending on Hong Kong Disneyland, which means Disney (NYSE: DIS  )  is finally bringing a character from its Marvel Entertainment universe into one of its theme parks. Should we expect U.S. parks to get their own Marvel character rides soon?

In the video below, Fool contributor Demitrios Kalogeropoulos says that Disney's international and California locations should start getting Marvel-based rides in the years ahead. But Florida resorts are another story, as Comcast's (NASDAQ: CMCSA  ) Universal Studios owns exclusive rights in that area of the country. Still, Disney has had success expanding its theme parks with fresh content, most recently from Pixar's Cars franchise. So Marvel-based park investments should be a no-brainer for the company going forward.
