So this'll be like a play or some shit?

yes, a live performance....hopefully not a musical...but it sounds pretty tight.

I'm not surprised, considering the Disney purchase. This reminds me of all the Disney on Ice shows I went to as a kid. I wouldn't be mad if it was in that vein- my first experiences with any sort of super-hero were with kid's tv shows.

Well It would be cool if one of their worldwide stops would be a city close to mine

I wonder if it will be like TMNT: Coming Out of Our Shells.

Sounds like the Batman Live Show that went around recently.

Can you say "jumping the shark"?
This is how you become known as willing to do anything for a buck. They're thinking the little kids may not get to see the 'violent' cbms so hook em with a little kiddie show and they'll be drones for life...the Disney way.
Shame on them.

This has Disney written all over it...
SimyJo - 3/13/2013, 3:20 PM
Ice-Man on ice?

The Human Torch on Ice? (might be a bit of a wash-out that performance).

@NovaCorpsFan;

"So this'll be like a play or some shit?"...

I'm reading Marvel Universe Live - but I'm seeing Donald Duck raping Captain America over a barrel in-front of 50,000 people.

Should rename it, Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark - Part Deux. ;)

Awesome news! Batman lived kicked ass for what it was. This should be epic. Im sure Disney has a lil bit more money to throw at this one.
MrMartinMarvel - 3/13/2013, 4:22 PM
I'd see it.

Wow. This MIGHT be the worst idea ever.

Dont know what to say. :(

The Broadway Spiderman show was rife with backstage turmoil and actors injuring themselves. And that was with the use of only one hero. Now Disney wants to make a traveling show using many from the Marvel Universe. Pray, true believers, for these brave actors. For they are about to be sacrificed on behalf of the almighty Disney dollar.
It will either be devastatingly cool or outrageously awful!

Jeezus christ in a pink nighty. How about you guys come up with something better? You guys must still be in your 20's and drive trucks with over sized tires. More than likely, it's entertainment for kids...oh wait?..nevermind.

I want Hank Pym & Wasp in this please.
