Real Live Superheroes?!
Superheroes have been dominating the box office for several years now. Each new release is greeted with eager anticipation, and some of the biggest movies of all time have been in this latest wave of comic book adaptations. The Avengers currently holds the record for biggest opening weekend over, and third biggest domestic box office of all time. Superheroes have started becoming more prominent on the small screen as well, with TV shows on the major networks, not to mention cable and new media outlets like Netflix. In short, it’s a superhero’s world out there.
And those heroes are coming to your world next! For the weekend of May 1-3, Marvel Universe Live! is coming to the Forum in Inglewood, California. Featuring an original story, audiences can see more than 25 of Marvel’s most popular characters brought to life in one epic show. The show is intended to be fun for the entire family, so it’s a great show for kids who love superheroes but may not be old enough to see the movies. Plus, it’s live! The show will feature martial arts, aerial stunts, motocross, and pyrotechnics.
One of the aspects I’m personally most excited about is seeing the characters in their comic book costumes. One thing the X-Men movies have never gotten right are the character’s costumes. Not an issue for Marvel Universe Live! You finally get to see Wolverine in the yellow Spandex suit that everyone knows from the pages of the comic books. Plus Spider-Man, Captain America, the Hulk, Iron Man, and more! Not to mention villains including Loki, Red Skull, Rhino, and Green Goblin.
Marvel Universe Live has 6 upcoming shows with tickets available. They are May 1st at 7:30, May 2nd at 11:00, 3:00, and 7:00, and May 3rd at 1:00 and 5:00. Tickets are available online, over the phone, or in person.
