First look at Marvel's amazing $1 billion superhero theme park

If the Marvel/Disney merger doesn't mess things up, get ready to be dazzled come 2012 by a $1 billion theme park based around Spider-Man, Iron Man, the X-Men, Incredible Hulk, the Fantastic Four, Silver Surfer and other superheroes.

Unfortunately, it won't be that easy for most of us to go "Flying with Spidey" or visit the "X-Men: Danger Room", since the park, a joint venture of United Arab Emirate-based Al Ahli Group and Marvel Entertainment Inc., is going to be built in Dubai (that is, if Dubai's current economic woes don't kill the project outright).

Still, whether the park gets built or not, we can't help but dream and drool over these concept drawings from the Chimera Design company.

Check out a complete gallery and more info over at Disney and More.
