Marvel and Disney have been promising that something “weird” is coming soon, but it’s still under tight wraps. The companies unveiled a teaser poster today that reads, “Do You Dare Enter?”. It might suggest a new comic project based on the “Museum of the Weird”, an early concept for the Haunted Mansion, which was originally supposed to be a feature film.
As far as I can tell, whatever this project is, it looks like family horror. The long-dead subgenre of family horror is in desperate need of a revival, and who better to do it than Disney who brought us flicks like The Watch In The Woods, Tower of Terror, Something Wicked This Way Comes, and a bunch more. This could very well be a comic project that is testing the waters to see if family horror is indeed worthy of pursuing. I love the family horror an unhealthy amount, and this could be a push in the right direction. What say you?
And this video showing the imagineering department and the plans for Museum of the Weird is pretty rad.
