The Marvel Universe Live Review
We went, we saw, and boy do we have one hell of a Marvel Universe Live review for you! Picture yourself in Tony Stark’s multi-million dollar penthouse in the Avengers’ Tower then get whisked away to the Himalayas, Hydra Island, and Loki’s Fortress as an epic battle of good versus evil unravels before your eyes. Our very excited Little Fairytale Traveler, affectionately known as the “Little”, had this to say about the press opening of Marvel Universe Live,
It was epic! I got to meet Cyclops. He showed me some superhero skills before the show. There was fire, and bikes, and epic battles. Spider-Man jumped from really high and Captain America did a sweet thing with his bike. He drove over fire and made sparks fly out of his shield. There was sweet kicks and it was all epic, I loved it!
A standing ovation stood to prove that Marvel Universe Live killed it with its début press opening last night at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. Its official début opens July 10th to start the first date of an 85-city U.S. tour over the next two years. International dates TBA.
Kids, parents, and Marvel Universe fans are going to be blown away with this performance. The stunts, costumes, and digital projections came together to make this show unforgettable. With classic Marvel Comic art, action-packed gravity-defying performances, and even an appearance from the Incredible Hulk himself, this show proved to be a hit.
The show’s projection space is said to be the largest ever known to be built and takes more computer power to run than to power a space shuttle. The show is composed of 25 super heroes and villains with 40 performers ranging from 18-40 years of age.
Cool Things We Loved
From the moment the storyline narration began, we knew we were in for a journey. The projection art was vivid and made you feel like you stepped into a comic book. The opening act featured Thor, my favorite Marvel superhero, and Nordic classic.
Loki of course was evil as ever as the opening battle between good versus evil unveiled. The costumes were dead on. Iron Man blew me away. There was not a stitch out-of-place, this really was Marvel Universe ‘live’! Every fight scene was perfectly choreographed, every stunt flawlessly timed.
