Marvel Superheroes Star in Dubai

Marvel Entertainment, Inc., will bring its universe of superheroes, including Spider-Man, Iron Man, The X-Men, Incredible Hulk, The Fantastic Four, and Silver Surfer, to Dubai as part of a new theme park being developed by Al Ahli Group. This first-ever global theme park in the region is in keeping with the vision set by HH Sheik Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, vice president and prime minister of the United Arab Emirate and Ruler of Dubai, through his entertainment- and hospitality-driven expansion projects for Dubai and the UAE. The theme park will open in 2011 with a direct investment of over $1 billion.
