Disneyland was sent to unveil Phase one of it’s Avengers Campus in July. Now it’s uncertain if it will still open on July 18th, but we do know it won’t be cannon. This is a world that never got Thanos’s “Snap” according to Comicbook.com’s Avengers Campus preview that with Dan Fields, Executive Creative Director, Disney Parks Live Entertainment:
“So the Avengers and all of us, the guests, we’re recruits. We’re here to just have eyes on the prize there. I think that you’ll find that these events are really happening. It’s really happening. This campus exists in the real world, and therefore, those heroes are here and keep an eye on us, keep us all safe. There’s no apocalyptic snap happening in this campus. He continues “As I mentioned, there’s no snap. What I mean by that is we want there to be some conflict, but we don’t want anyone to feel that there’s an apocalyptic threat to the end of humanity. Our friends in the studio do a great job with that. So we want the conflict to be a little more accessible to the daily guests here.”
Well that and it’s hard to have Black Widow, Iron Man and Captain America there if you continue the cannon from the last two Avengers films.
I’m not surprised this is what they chose to go with because I’ve seen several articles talking about Iron Man’s special, new, Mark 80 Armor for the parks.
In this version, Loki and the Tesseract are at the Avengers Campus, because that’s where I would go. This is in the multiverse according to Walt Disney Imagineering staff writer and Avengers Campus story lead Jillian Pagan:
“And then there was a divergence and Loki takes the Tesseract over here and they’re doing things over there, and in our timeline we have a shared history with the films. We will continue to have a shared history as we move forward, so there’ll be a little bit of fluidity to that timeline, but clearly we live in a version of the multiverse where there are some characters who did not sacrifice themselves for us. They are alive and well and now welcome you to it.”
