Loki's at it again and this time, he's brought friends. The Avengers will have their hands full when this show hits cities across the United States this summer, but don't worry, it looks like they've recruited a few friends of their own, including Marvel legends, Spider-Man and Wolverine.

Tour dates for the 85-city tour were announced last week, with the show starting off in Tampa, FL, in July before trekking along the east coast all the way to New York City for its world premiere at the Barclays Center on August 13th. It plans to hit the west coast Spring 2015. Tickets are currently on sale for this summer's shows with prices ranging from $40 to $180.

The live show has an impressive crew with Emmy winner Shanda Sawyer on board as director, writing duo Adam Wilson and Melanie Wilson LaBracio and stunt coordinator Andy Armstrong (who also served as stunt coordinator for 2011's Thor), among others, the roughly 50-performer show culled its cast from martial artists, aerial performers, stunt people and more. Casting director Jessica Ferris also emphasized the actors’ ability to embody larger-than-life characters who have become icons of comics and film.

Marvel's CCO, Joe Quesada, had this to say about the show: “The technology utilized in the show is not only going to blow your mind, it is going to take you to a whole new Marvel world like nothing fans have ever seen before,

Check out the plot below, followed by concept art for the featured characters, and a few production videos showing behind the scenes work on the show.


Here is the official plot, directly from Feld Entertainment:

Marvel Universe LIVE! will 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.

To defeat Loki, Marvel’s biggest Super Heroes must band together, including The Avengers – Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk and Thor along with Spider-Man and Wolverine, must trek across the globe to retrieve the Cosmic Cube fragments and unite them. As the Super Heroes track the Cube, they will encounter some of their biggest adversaries including Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Red Skull, Madame Hydra, Aldrich Killian, Electro and more, in the quest for the very same fragments. These foes have no problem teaming up if it gets them closer to their ultimate goal of world domination.

If they have wolverine in a production with his costume on that will really suck. In something like this and not in the movie? This is why fox will never get my money for their CBM's again.
jlabatman - 2/6/2014, 8:15 AM
Agree with yoss! No St. Louis, not happening then!
pointman - 2/6/2014, 8:23 AM
My apologies! I sense some sarcasm in there somewhere!
xfan320 - 2/6/2014, 8:43 AM
How much y'all wanna bet that their live action Wolverine costume looks AWESOME and ACCURATE..?

Slap to the face, much? (Lookin at you, FOX!)

Unless you're under 10 yrs old, there's no reason to be excited about this at all.
third3ye - 2/6/2014, 8:54 AM
Also didn't Marvel learn its lesson with Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark?

Interesting.
And what the hell version of Marvel is THIS now?

Movie Loki.
And "stage" version of The Lizard?

But of course, it doesn't matter anyway.
