Because the premise of Californa Adventure was a park dedicated to the history, sights and sounds of California.When I think of a Florida Adventure, I don't think of a hollywood tower of terror or a millennium falcon lol.

So what's stopping Disney from sinking a cool billion into a Marvel World, and finally giving coasterheads a reason to drop their own cool pennies in Disney's pockets? Seriously, I'm planning a Florida to Ohio road trip, as many decent parks and coasters as I can ride, and Disney simply isn't on the agenda, because they only cater to families with small kids as far as I can see. What's stopping them finally taking that step and announcing a new thrill park filled with coasters themed to their industry-crushing Marvel property? Iron Man, a B&M flying coaster, Captain America, a Giga coaster, Black Widow, a Gerstlauer Infinity, I could go on and on...
..and I don't even like Marvel. But it's their ticket to my money...
...all they'd be missing is Hulk and Spider Man, although the latter might change with the rights swinging 'tween Sony and Disney, not sure about all those studio politics.
^In Florida they are restricted as to what they can do with Marvel due to Universal's licencing agreement that's in place for IoA, it's not just Hulk & Spiderman that are off the cards, as I understand it, it's any character that is related to any characters that are used at IoA, so that would include all the Avengers, this is presumably why they have been able to use Guardians of the Galaxy at Epcot.
Also a big coaster park is not Disney's style, they have been able to create some of the best thrill rides in the world without having to build any big skyscraping coasters
