Dubai to Host World’s First Superhero Theme Park

As if Dubai couldn’t get any wackier, it has just been announced that Marvel Comics will be opening a theme park in this crazy city.

We’ve posted a number of times about all the wild projects underway in Dubai; the city has become somewhat of a futuristic playground for design and style. And now there are going to be superheroes running around.

Marvel Entertainment has entered a $1 billion agreement with the UAE-based Al Ahli Group to build the world’s first superhero theme park.

Marvel is responsible for bringing the world such superstars as Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four. By 2011, these superheroes and many of their colleagues will be running amuck in the United Arab Emirates, slinging webs and fighting bad guys. Kapow!
