From Orlando to London to Dubai, one of the hottest franchises in the attractions industry is the Marvel Universe. And now Hero Ventures, a Los Angeles based entertainment company, announced today that it is teaming up with Marvel Entertainment to create “The Marvel Experience,” an innovative, traveling experience, featuring dozens of Marvel’s iconic Super Heroes. This attraction will appeal to a multi-generational audience and will leverage state-of-the-art interactive and multimedia technology, including a 4D motion ride and original 3D animated features, allowing fans to be a part of the action. The tour comes to life in 2014.

The Marvel Experience is a “first-person” Super Hero adventure in which audiences step into the Marvel Universe to become a part of the story and the action. Innovative tour elements include a one-of-a-kind, traveling dome complex the size of two football fields developed exclusively by Hero Ventures. In addition to the 4D motion ride and 3D animated features, other components will include digitally projected animation, motion-comic origin stories, virtual reality and holographic simulations, original merchandise and integrated social media touch points all carefully woven into the rich narrative story line.

“Hero Ventures is developing a themed entertainment concept that we expect will be a transformative, traveling destination that will deliver to fans and families an exciting, groundbreaking and unique experience,” says Marvel’s VP of Business Development, Sean Haran.

The characters and stories of the Marvel Universe are beloved around the world by ages young and old as seen with the recent global box office records for Marvel’s The Avengers and Marvel’s Iron Man 3.

“The dynamic creative elements we’re developing are going to enable anyone to feel like a Super Hero like Spider-Man or Captain America,” says Hero Ventures’ CEO Rick Licht. “We couldn’t be more excited about our partnership with Marvel. Kids and adults are going to be absolutely inspired, empowered and thrilled from start to finish, with an immersive experience that is not just memorable, but unforgettable!”

“The Marvel Universe just keeps getting hotter, as seen by the massive world-wide box office and merchandise success of their characters,” says Michael Cohl. “We can’t wait to bring our Marvel vision to life in this first-of-its-kind event.” Cohl, former Live Nation Chairman and legendary live event impresario, along with his Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark co-producer and PRG founder Jeremiah “Jere” Harris, will serve as lead producers.

I should start a review company called “no one ever” so I can say

“This is the best Idea ever” said No One Ever

Can't we just get Star Spangled Man: The Broadway Experience instead.

I agree with you for once!

soooo... like star tours?

Sounds pretty cool. It'll probably be really expensive to go, though

That's cool.

I doubt it'll be prohibitively expensive as long as it's held in large stadiums live Batman Live.

Not 100% what they're plans are. Seem more conceptual and vaugue, but could be cool.

I just wish Disney would create a full marvel theme park (and a star wars one).

Batman Live was okay. I was expecting it to be a little more fast paced. The fight choreography was slow and I expected that scene with all those henchmen with the glow sticks to be awesome, it was a letdown with all the build up. But the Scarecrow part was cool, as was the Arkham setting.
