You Can See Marvel's Rogers: The Musical Live At Disneyland This Summer

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is obsessed with Captain America and it always has been. Even though the Joe Biden lookalike bid his superhero friends farewell 10 whole movies ago, he's somehow always top of mind — whether it's Sam Wilson struggling to follow in his footsteps or Peter Parker attempting murder atop Cap's giant fallen shield from the Statue of Liberty. But by far, the greatest tribute to America's Ass was the dazzling musical that took fictional Broadway by storm in the Disney+ series "Hawkeye." So if you haven't been able to shake the memory of "Rogers: The Musical" from your brain, then prepare to celebrate some very good news: Steve Rogers will officially take center stage in his own one-act musical!

Disney Parks announced the news via Twitter, sharing a brief teaser video and writing, "A short one-act musical is coming for a limited time this summer to Disney California Adventure Park! Stay tuned for more details."

"Rogers: The Musical," the corny Hamilton parody that triggered Hawkeye's PTSD, will mark the first new show at Disney California Adventure since "Frozen – Live at the Hyperion" closed in March 2020. The Hyperion has remained dark since the COVID-19 pandemic began — but Cap has returned to save the day. No further plot details have been shared, but based on the title and what we've already seen of the musical, it tells the story of Marvel's First Avenger, Steve Rogers, from his origins to his (supposed) death.

Rogers: The Musical was inevitable

The biggest shock of this announcement is that it even took this long for Marvel to do something with "Rogers: The Musical." The studio already went to the trouble of producing and performing a whole musical number, so why not get more bang for their buck? Outside of "Hawkeye," the song was also performed at D23 and an advertisement for the fictitious musical can be seen in "Spider-Man: No Way Home." It was only a matter of time before they got to work, writing more songs.

The casting call for "Rogers: The Musical" actually leaked earlier this month, but it was assumed to be for something else entirely. "Hercules" was a popular theory among fans; it turns out that Steve Rogers, a "noble, loyal, idealistic, and romantic do-gooder, who does not give up easily," has a lot in common with the son of Zeus. The audition call asked for "singers/actors who move" for a "new limited run musical at the Hyperion Theatre at Disneyland Resort." The listing also revealed that the book is written by Hunter Bell, with music by Emmy-nominated and Grammy-winning composer Christopher Lennertz. Only one song from the fictional musical was featured in "Hawkeye," but an entirely different creative team was behind it: "Hairspray" duo Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman penned "Save The City."

Per Disney, more details regarding the storyline, music, and debut date of "Rogers: The Musical" are still to come.
