After scouring the country to find the best of the best in live action performers with an amazing array of disciplines and skills, Feld Entertainment, Inc., the worldwide leader in live touring family events, today reveals the final cast of more than 50 performers ready to bring its most ambitious live event experience to life in Marvel Universe LIVE!.  Debuting this July in Tampa, FL, before having its world premiere at New York City’s Barclays Center on Wednesday, August 13, the show will be the most physically demanding in Feld Entertainment’s storied history and will stop in 85 cities nationwide.

Featuring the most Marvel characters ever in one production, Marvel Universe LIVE! will be headlined by a cast trained in everything from martial arts to motocross in order to bring the Marvel Universe to the live action arena. Supported by a unique blend of aerial stunts, pyrotechnics and state-of-the-art special effects, the performers will bring an epic live action experience right in front of audiences’ eyes every time.



After an intensive eight month cross-country casting process that took place in New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Orlando and Ellenton, Florida, with hundreds of hopefuls representing the United States, Mexico, Hungary, France, United Kingdom, Russia, and Japan showing off their considerable skills, the final ensemble is set. When the spotlight finally shines, spectators will see some of the world’s most gifted athletes and performers including professional snow-skater and three-time X Games champ Phil Smage (Captain America), WMX Pro National champion and two-time X Games winner Ashley Fiolek (Hydra Agent), and 2012 X Games Silver Medalist Louise Forsley (Black Widow). To depict the superlative athleticism of some of Marvel’s most renowned heroes, Feld Entertainment also has signed martial arts expert and AAU Junior Olympics/National Champion Kirk Jenkins (Wolverine) and long-time American Ninja Warrior professional course tester Eric Foster (Hawkeye).
 

Marvel Universe LIVE! is set to captivate audiences with an authentic and original story that brings more than 25 Marvel characters together on one epic quest.  The story is framed around the battle over the Cosmic Cube, the source of ultimate power and one of the most feared and coveted treasures in the Marvel Universe, that has been shattered into pieces by the mighty Thor in order to prevent it from falling into the wrong hands. With the pieces scattered across the globe, Thor’s villainous brother, Loki, devises a scheme to clone its powers, inciting a threat that could not only decimate Earth but also obliterate the Universe.

DrDoom - 6/12/2014, 1:27 PM
I would be interested, but they're using Carol Danvers as Captain Marvel rather than Ms. Marvel, so [frick] it.
yossarian - 6/12/2014, 1:27 PM
No shit Batz...why else would I let you beat me and [frick] me?
dio - 6/12/2014, 1:31 PM

BlanketMan - 6/12/2014, 1:39 PM
I have a bad feeling that this might make "Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark" look good.
dio - 6/12/2014, 1:48 PM
I have a feeling kids will eat this up and that's awesome.
write33 - 6/12/2014, 1:48 PM

batz11 - 6/12/2014, 1:56 PM
Ciph and Dio, you guys would be perfect fluffers, from what I hear...
skullboy - 6/12/2014, 1:56 PM
Seems like an Avengers version of Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark.
BlindJustice - 6/12/2014, 1:57 PM
@Jollem - You're just plain SICK! Don't EVER show those pics again...
BlindJustice - 6/12/2014, 1:59 PM
This reminds me of the Batman Stunt Show at Six Flags back in the 90s. That show was really cool...but unfortunately for it, riding the roller coasters was still cooler.
Jollem - 6/12/2014, 2:01 PM
@BlindJustice - :)

TheGodOfMischief - 6/12/2014, 2:01 PM
