Marvel Comics are coming to Greenville, South Carolina! No, really, they are! If you’re a fan of the comics or the movies or the TV shows or the video games you’re going to go nuts!
Marvel Universe Live is coming to the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in October. I’m not entirely certain what this means exactly, but it involves dancers, fighters, and, according to the Bon Secours Wellness Arena website “… cutting-edge special effects, pyrotechnics, aerial stunts, martial arts, motorcycles and more.” You’ll definitely want to click here to visit their website for more information.
Marvel Universe Live also has a website you can visit by clicking here. This is where you can watch the trailer — which features the Tesseract from Thor — and videos of tryouts for the roles. If you like what you see that’s where you can also buy tickets. It states the show will include Spider Man, Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Wolverine, Loki, the Green Goblin, the Black Widow, Storm, Nick Fury, and Hawkeye. No seriously, that’s it says. (Click here to see the list of characters.)
For media coverage about the show you can click here to read a very good article in the Hero Complex Blog by the LA Times, click here to read an article by Fanboy Planet, and I’d definitely recommend clicking here to read this January article in USA Today that describes it very well, including the tidbit that Tony Stark’s lab will be a center piece.
Tickets are already on sale, but I suspect they’ll be going fast. If you are a fan of Marvel or know a fan of Marvel this could be one ticket you’ve got to buy.
