Spectacular live action stunt show featuring Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Wolverine and many more
Marvel has hijacked pop culture. After the films, comics, TV shows and toys, now fans can step into the pages of its comic book adventures as Marvel Universe Live! delivers a huge live action spectacular packed with martial arts, motorbikes and high wire aerial stunts. The show features all the superhero favourites: Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Spider-Man, Wolverine and more, who take on the evil forces of Loki and his villainous cohorts.
Surprisingly, this is the first official live show from Marvel. Created by Feld Entertainment, specialists in large-scale family entertainment, Marvel Universe Live! is their most ambitious project yet teaming up with action and stunt co-ordinator Andy Armstrong (brother of stunt legend Vic Armstrong) who has worked on some of Hollywood's biggest blockbusters, including Thor, Green Hornet and The Amazing Spider-Man.
A cast of 50, lashings of pyro, innovative 3D projections and lighting effects will transport the audience across the globe as heroes and villains fight for control of the all-powerful Cosmic Cube. 'Whatever I've done in terms of live shows is nothing compared to the size of Marvel Universe Live!,' explains Armstrong. 'With an acute Marvel fan awareness, I take seriously the fact that this is the first time ever an audience will see just about every Marvel Universe hero all in one arena at one time. This makes us even more excited to reveal stunts that have never been seen before.'
