Dave Bushore, vice president, franchise creative and marketing for Marvel Studios, said the most important part of the Avengers Campus was making sure they could encapsulate how fans felt during iconic Marvel movie moments, such as the Nick Fury post-credits scene in Iron Man and Captain America lifting Thor’s enchanted hammer Mjolnir in Avengers: Endgame.

As per ComicBook, he said:

Being able to go to that place that you’ve always dreamed of, that is an unimaginably powerful thing because you don’t have to pretend anymore.

Executive vice president of production Victoria Alonso added:

You actually get to be there. Having the door open where you can go to a park is one more extension of living the experience of being a superhero.

The Avengers Campus, which Kevin Feige described as ‘the next progression’ of Marvel superhero storytelling, will open its doors on July 18.
