Ready For A 'Black Panther' Disney Park Ride?

Disney's CEO addressed the possibility at a Wall Street conference this week.

Disney CEO Bob Iger suggested that a theme park ride based on the box office smash “Black Panther” might pop up at a Disney property in the near future, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Iger noted at an investor conference in New York on Monday that the superhero film has become “an important moment in culture,” and that guests are waiting an hour just to meet the Black Panther character at Disneyland in Anaheim, California.

“No ride?” someone said.

To which Iger replied with a laugh, per THR: “No. We haven’t had a chance to build a ride. Though I’m sure there are people who are working on it.”

"Black Panther," which is quickly closing in on $1 billion in global ticket sales, could become a Disney theme park ride, a top executive hinted Monday.

Iger added that by autumn, “you’ll be seeing a lot of ‘Black Panther’ merchandise.”

But some fans would no doubt love to experience a ride based on Disney’s latest Marvel superhero to make it big on the big screen.

In just its second week, the film has already surpassed $700 million at the global box office.

In the meantime, Disney has been beefing up Marvel’s presence at its parks ― which would perhaps be just the spot for a “Black Panther” ride?
