Marvel fans, it's time to butter your sandwiches, empty the cupboard of snacks and assemble the kids — because the all-new Marvel Universe Live! is back in town! The live-action show tears through the pages of imagination into an arena spectacular that for once has parents pleading with their kids, "Can you just do your homework tomorrow instead?"

Welcome To The Age Of Arena Heroes

Forget (well, delay. No, do both!) watching your favorite Marvel characters come to life on the big screen — legendary battles are now taking center stage. The official Marvel Universe Live! website describes the experience as:

Prepare for an action-packed, legendary battle to defend the universe from evil. Spider-Man, the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy join forces with Doctor Strange, master of the mystic arts, in a race against time to recover the Wand of Watoomb before it falls into Loki’s hands.

Following the success of its Broadway production Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, which ran from 2011–2014, Feld Entertainment have once again worked with Marvel Entertainment to conceive a completely new narrative designed to maximize the stadium experience for fans young and old.
