I'd love to read the actual contractual language some day.

I recently heard an advertisement for a "Marvel Live" show that is going to be traveling around Florida next month.  It sounds like it's from the Disney on Ice people.  The commercial listed a lot of the Marvel Avengers characters.  Since these performances will not be in a theme park, I assume that Disney has the right to license that show.

Yes, that's the show I heard advertised.

They are heading over to Orlando right after that: https://www.marveluniverselive.com/tickets

Which makes me wonder about the 60 mile radius restrictions mentioned in the article you posted:

This spells out Universals rights to Marvel Characters. Wonder if it only covered ones that were around in the 90's and that's why Disney can have Guardians at WDW?

Back in the 1990s, long before Marvel was acquired by Disney, they signed an impressively tight contract with Universal for the rights to the characters in use within theme park attractions. The contract limits the use of the characters on the east coast of the country to Universal Orlando with even tighter restrictions within a 60-mile radius of the Orlando parks. The contract does have a few stipulations, like ensuring upkeep of the rides, but overall is definitely more favorable to Universal than Marvel.

Feld Entertainment is down the street from where I live and I pass by it regularly.  The building is massive.  I wonder if they do tours of the place...it would be cool to get inside and see the behind the scenes things.

Wouldn't hurt to ask...

Very cool.  I know that they were the producers for the Ringling Brothers circus for a long time. It seems that they have carried on without missing a beat.  Good for them.  The logistics of operating these shows must be incredible.

They've been doing these shows for years along with Ringling.  I guess they need to find more acts now to make up for that loss.

It looks like Feld Entertainment still donates money or are affiliated in some way with the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Center for Elephant Conservation which is in Central Florida.  It sounds like they retired some of or all of the herd here.  I will definitely check that place out sometime soon.  Pretty cool!
