Sixteen films in, the Marvel Cinematic Universe shows no signs of stopping, with eight more already in the works. Add their growing list of television series, the comics they're all based on, plenty of merchandise and an Australian gallery exhibition, and Marvel mania is difficult to escape. In fact, soon you'll be able to sleep in a hotel dedicated to the company's caped crusaders.

Disney has announced that Disneyland Paris will become the home of the world's first Marvel hotel, reimagining an existing site into a superhero-themed wonderland. The park's Disney's Hotel New York will become known as Disney's Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel — and yes, we do think that a Parisian place with New York in its name has the potential to be confusing, but that's not likely to stop Avengers fans.

Details are currently thin on the ground; however the hotel will feature nods to everyone from Iron Man to Spider-Man — and we're hoping some of the brand's female superheroes too. And, in what's shaping up to be a great time to be a pop culture fan, the news comes hot on the heels of another huge Disney hotel, with Stars Wars-theme site slated to debut as part of Walt Disney World's new 360 vacation concept in Orlando.
