“We expect, given the interest in this film, that demand for its product is going continue to be strong pretty much throughout the year,” Iger said.

Iger also said that Disney's parks and resorts planning group, known as the “Imagineers,” have been working on ways to incorporate Marvel into the company's theme parks, beyond Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla., where Universal Studios holds the rights to the characters.

“We have a number of other opportunities … at our other parks, notably California and Europe and in Asia — I guess that pretty much covers the rest of the world,” Iger said. “And our Imagineering group has been working over the last year … to create more opportunities for Marvel in the parks.”
