After establishing its mark in the comic industry, Marvel Studios initiated arena shows much to the delight of the devoted Marvel fans. These innovative shows which were a joint collaboration of Marvel Universe and Feld Entertainment (the producers of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus and Disney on Ice) transformed the arena experience by taking entertainment to a whole new level.
It was in March 2013 that Marvel Entertainment came up with the idea to bring all popular Marvel characters together in a live arena show. The project was an ambitious one because the characters were already a hit and quite renown so expectations were high. Loyal Marvel fans anticipated exceptional performances and stunts as the show was to showcase not one superhero but 25 comic book characters from the Marvel Universe on one stage.
Bringing this kind of production in a live setting also posed some risks and its own set of challenges. It was a dangerous task to get the performers to do stunts in a live setting, as there were no stunt doubles or retakes. In the worst-case scenario, a botched stunt could result in injuries, which was a very real challenge.
Another challenge was that all the superheroes had their specific powers and the costumes and stunts had to be devised accordingly. Fight sequences also had to be more than ordinary, thus the engineering and the development for the production went on for almost two years during which several people auditioned, including martial artists, aerial performers and several talented stunt men. The live-show wizards made sure to employ the best stuntmen in the business that could give fans some real-life action that they expected and set the stage on fire.
Packed with thrilling action, brilliant pyrotechnics, movie-style special effects and high-tech video projections, the touring arena show had all the ingredients to become an instant sensation. And that it did as soon as it started showing at arenas.
On 10 July, 2014, the Marvel Universe LIVE! was ready for its premier at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. It turned out to be a big success and the show kicked off with its first national tour. The same year in August, the Marvel Universe LIVE! went to the Big Apple, premiering at the Barclays Center and since then most of its show are sold out weeks ahead of its performance.
The storyline is a captivating one with a strong foundation. It is based on the storyline from the Avengers movie and revolves around the cosmic cube which is the ultimate source of power that is both feared and coveted in the Marvel Universe. From getting it into the wrong hands it has to be shattered to prevent the universe from destruction and therefore Thor does the task but his evil brother Loki is adamant to have it back one way or the other. He is on a mission to find the shattered pieces scattered across the globe to gain ultimate power and rule mankind. This poses a threat to the universe so the superheroes come together in their quest to stop it from happening. What ensues is an electrifying battle against Loki and his evil force. This provides jaw-dropping action that will keep you entertained till the last moment of the show.
The production features super villains like Red Skull, Electro and Green Goblin who clash with the Avengers namely, Hulk, Spider Man, X-Men, Iron Man, Doctor Octopus, Wolverine and more.
Kenneth Feld, CEO of Feld Entertainment, describes the show as "… the most ambitious undertaking in the more than 40-year history of Feld Entertainment." "It's the kind of show you always strive to produce but with so many advances in technology only now can you truly deliver it to fans."
