The Disneyland Resort is receiving approvals for permits related to the construction of its new Marvel-themed land at Disney California Adventure Park in Anaheim, Calif., according to the Los Angeles Times.

The Times reported that Anaheim has recently approved building permits for a retail outlet, a microbrewery, a character meet-and-greet area and a bathroom overhaul. It is a $14 million project.

The Marvel-themed land is expected to open in 2020. Disney has hinted that Spider-Man and the Avengers will play prominent roles. Guardians of the Galaxy already has a presence in California Adventure with the attraction Mission: Breakout!

Mission: Breakout!, located in the reimagined Twilight Zone Tower of Terror building, will anchor the Marvel land. It will also take over the space formerly occupied by A Bug's Land, which was shuttered last year.

The news comes on the heels of the antcipated May 31 opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, located just to the north in Disneyland Park. 

In addition to the Marvel additions at Disney's California Adventure, Epcot, Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong Disneyland also are slated to get new Marvel attractions.
