If you haven’t heard about this latest creation from Marvel, then you’re in for a real treat. Back in November 2013, IGN released an article about the villains of this show and that’s how I first found out about i. BUT in case some of you did not know, Marvel Universe LIVE! is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a live action “touring arena show” that’s apparently going to have superheroes and villains alike, fighting onstage in front of large crowds.
Sounds interesting right? (Before we judge, let’s give it a try…) If I can get some of the other Dorkaholics staff members to come with me, I’ll most definitely be going to this!
Feld Entertainment (the company behind bringing us this latest show) sent out a press release that contained the summary of the show’s plot:
Marvel Universe LIVE! will captivate audiences with an authentic and original story that brings more than 25 Marvel characters together on one epic quest. The story is framed around the battle over the Cosmic Cube, the source of ultimate power and one of the most feared and coveted treasures in the Marvel Universe, that has been shattered into pieces by the Mighty Thor in order to prevent it from falling into the wrong hands. With the pieces scattered across the globe, Thor’s villainous brother Loki devises a scheme to clone its powers, inciting a threat that could not only decimate Earth but also obliterate the Universe.
To defeat Loki, Marvel’s biggest Super Heroes must band together, including The Avengers – Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk and Thor along with Spider-Man and Wolverine, must trek across the globe to retrieve the Cosmic Cube fragments and unite them. As the Super Heroes track the Cube, they will encounter some of their biggest adversaries including Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Red Skull, Madame Hydra, Aldrich Killian, Electro and more, in the quest for the very same fragments. These foes have no problem teaming up if it gets them closer to their ultimate goal of world domination.
Tickets are on sale now, with dates for 85 cities announced Tuesday. The official world premiere will be at New York City’s Barclays Center on Aug. 13. Scheduled Southern California dates include San Jose from March 20-22, 2015, Anaheim from March 27-29, Ontario from April 9-12 and San Diego from April 16-19.
