Marvel has revealed a cryptic message teasing something for Walt Disney Parks and Resorts at the 2013 D23 Expo.

On their web site and on Twitter, they have shared the graphic below along with instructions to find out more during the upcoming official Disney fan event:

This weekend, only at the Walt Disney Parks & Resorts pavilion during the Disney D23 2013 Expo, ask for something WEIRD and get your first look at an all-new project coming from Marvel & Disney!

It’s filed on Marvel.com under the “Comics” section, so the project appears to be a new comic book. And with that creepy font style, the one “weird” Disney attraction that immediately comes to mind is “Museum of the Weird,” an early concept for The Haunted Mansion, developed by Imagineer Rolly Crump.

In 2010, Disney was working on a movie based on “Museum of the Weird” but ultimately scrapped the project.

Could a “Museum of the Weird” comic book be on the way? Stay tuned for complete 2013 D23 Expo coverage later this week, including this news.

    What I would love to see for Disney California Adventure’s Paradise Pier area: a Museum of the Weird ride that is based on Mystique Manor from HK Disneyland.

    It would fit perfectly with the Paradise Pier area. Remove some of the cheap carnival rides that are there now, and build a large building that could be the “Museum of the Weird”. It would be the DCA answer to Haunted Mansion and could be built using a clone of Mystique Manor, but have a different theme so Mystique Manor can remain unique.

    Paradise Pier looks so junky compared to Cars Land and Buena Vista Street so this would be a great new attraction.

      Paradise Pier? Oh, you mean Luna Park, with the 20’s/Silly Symphonies motif?
      Well, guess it would….sorta…fit.

      I wouldn’t be surprised if it involves Doctor Strange somehow, since he is a collector of supernatural artifacts.

    I would love to see Marvel do a comic series for The Haunted Mansion or any Disney Parks attraction in general! Although SLG comics has already done a great comics series for The Haunted Mansion!
