‘Marvel Universe Live!’ brings on the bad guys
While Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark may be winding down — on Broadway, at least — another superhero stage production is only getting started: Marvel and Feld Entertainment’s Marvel Universe Live!, which this morning announced more supervillains for the upcoming arena show tour.
IGN.com has the first look at character designs for Loki, Iron Man foe Aldrich Killian, Red Skull, A.I.M. and Chitauri warriors, while the production’s Facebook page debuts a H.Y.D.R.A. agent. They join previously revealed Spider-Man foes Doctor Octopus, Electro, Rhino, Lizard and Green Goblin in the fight against the wall-crawler, Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Incredible Hulk, Hawkeye, Falcon, Nick Fury and others.
Launching in July, Marvel Universe Live! will bring Marvel’s most iconic heroes and villains to 85 cities across North America in the show’s first two years. The live-action production will integrate a character-driven storyline with state-of-the-art special effects, pyrotechnics, aerial stunts and martial arts for what producers say will “redefine the live show experience.”
