MARVEL THEME PARK...IN DUBAI???

Postby Leckomaniac on Tue Mar 20, 2007 2:36 pm

-United Arab Emirate-based Al Ahli Group and Marvel Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE: MVL) announced today a partnership that will bring Marvel’s full library of Super Heroes -- including Spider-Man, Iron Man, The X-Men, Incredible Hulk, The Fantastic Four and Silver Surfer -- to Dubai for a major new theme park destination being developed by AAG. The development is in line with the vision set by HH Shk. Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, through his innovative entertainment and hospitality driven expansion projects for Dubai and the UAE.


Quite a strange development. The United Arab Emirate? Really?

Isnt that wierd?

The first thing I thought when I heard this news was, I wonder what they will think of the Captain America ride...

Is there actually a market in the middle east for western comic characters? Like big enough to make a theme park!?! I guess they are targeting the rich that visit there and something like that might not fly here in America. Or something..

But the good news is that on the Fantastic Four ride, the Invisible Woman will actually be invisible, safely hidden behind a burqa.

Okay, the dinosaur oil thing was probably wrong. And also the burqa comment isn't applicable, but I saw a cheap joke and went for it to point out a broader issue. What I do know about the Emirates is that they've made a lot of strides in hopes of getting westerners to invest in their country, but the fact is that citizens still aren't able to vote, their freedom of speech is guaranteed in the constitution but not in reality, that they can't organize labor unions to seek better working conditions, and that the slave trafficking of women and children is cited as a continual problem by the US state department. (You can read the assessment here: http://www.state.gov/g/drl/rls/hrrpt/2002/18291.htm)

I don't think it's racist in the least to point out stupidity wherever we see it.

Well it's racist to resort to stereotypes in order to do so...

Though I think some of the points you make are disputable... for instance, most of workers in the UAE are foreign. And of the foreigners, there are loads of westerners/Americans, and they all get treated like kings/queens. Maybe they can't ever become citizens, or own land, but the absurdly studly paychecks make for nice savings.

On the other end of the spectrum, you have if I'm not mistaken, a largely Indian workforce doing all the jobs no one else wants to do. Without going into further detail, the situation can be likened to that of many western countries, btw.

Trafficking of children and women is an artifact of the old, and it's on its way out, this I promise. It even suggests this in your report: "the Government implemented and enforced a ban against the use of juvenile camel jockeys, a number of whom were trafficked to the country from South Asia."

The main motivation? The UAE is a small country, but is slowly being turned into one large tourist resort. Though they may have one of those "silly monarchies," one of the princes (I forget which one, the Dubai one) has been strategically planning development of Dubai for years now, emphasizing a strengthening of binds with western nations, particularly the United States. And westerners are lapping it up btw, and have been for years. The Emirates are enjoying a prosperity uncommon to the rest of the Middle East, and with that prosperity naturally come the freedoms enjoyed in western nations. Nevertheless, they still seem to want to uphold Muslim values in their legal system, but that's not necessarily very different from western/Christian nations, and does not necessarily mean the Saudi Arabian way of doing things.

As a side note, it turns out that "Marvel Superhero Captain America" can be rearranged to spell "Lavish Crematorium Reappearance."

So he's not really dead. I think this evidence is conclusive.

Nah, man, I was getting pretty annoyed by the lack of knowledge about Dubai myself... As in, that's part of Ayeraq, right?

Considering current political events, wars etc along with actually having the right to vote... thats pretty shocking (ha) to hear that folk don't know too much shit.

Those dudes in the UAE have the money to invest in anything, there are some pretty crazy restaurants out there as far as I've been told. In fact they are promoting the olympic village for the 2016 Olympic games! No less.

Edit: Although Adam's comment about the invisible woman and the Burqa did make me laugh, I'm... such...a... hypocrit :lol:

So Pacino is complaining that everyone is making fun of Arabs even though they only mentioned the UAE and proceeds to tell everyone about the diversity of the UAE even though no one stated or implied the UAE was strictly Arab and that equals racism? :roll:
The jokes before Pacino's comment were about...
Haliburton
Captain America
Invisible Woman/Burka
Dinosaurs = Oil
Captain America again

None of the above are racist....The burka comment is a Muslim joke and considering Muslims other than Arabs wear Burkas that would make it a religious joke not a racist joke. I mean Pacino is aware there are Muslims who aren't Arab, right? :wink:

I believe there is a Wolverine ride in Canada. At least that is what Havoc told me. Although there is a 90% chance that it was just Havoc with goofy hair and forks in his hands violating anyone within a 2 mile area.

Because um...oh, never mind.


:shock:




I believe there is a Wolverine ride in Canada. At least that is what Havoc told me. Although there is a 90% chance that it was just Havoc with goofy hair and forks in his hands violating anyone within a 2 mile area.

Actually, I think that they decided to make it a Classic Monsters Maze.

Or is this something else? Because you all know I'm a huge Sommersverse fan and I really think Universal is really making a huge mistake not recognizing the fanbase of that film...
