IT is time for Marvel fans to assemble for the thrill of an arena stunt show.

All the heroes and villains of comic book universe are coming to the stage including a showdown at Manchester Arena from November 28 to December 1.

In a new storyline, Marvel Universe Live will see Spider-Man, The Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy join forces with Doctor Strange in a race against time to recover the ‘Wand of Watoomb’ before it falls into Loki’s hands.

The spectacle will see aerial stunts, martial arts and motorbike stunts combined with special effects, pyrotechnics and 3D video projection mapping.

The tour is being presented by Feld Entertainment, the arena specialists behind the likes of Monster Jam, Disney On Ice and Jurassic World Live.

Juliette Feld, producer of Marvel Universe Live, said: “Our tremendously talented creative team and a nearly super human cast, have created a show that brings Marvel to life.

“The show creates an experience that immerses families in non-stop action, creating movie-style thrills and jaw-dropping stunts that showcase the powers of your favourite super heroes right before your eyes.”
