Over the weekend I headed to Vancouver to witness the Marvel Universe Live and it was AWESOME.
Marvel are responsible for some of the most iconic characters in modern history, from Spider-man to The Hulk, Black Widow, Captain America, Thor, Iron-Man the list is seemingly endless. Through comic books, Saturday morning cartoons, movies, TV shows we’ve followed their ongoing struggles to protect the world from the whims of some of the greatest villains we’ve ever seen, Goblin, Red Skull, Loki, Lizard, AIM and now they have all come together for one EPIC battle.. live.
‘Marvel Universe Live’ comes to Toronto August 13th-16th and Hamilton August 6th-9th and it’s not to be missed.
Ok fine its aimed at kids, but I will tell you I’m a 30 year old man and I had an absolute blast! Classic Marvel, the show is clever, funny, action packed and just all around FUN! It was awesome to look around and see kids of all ages with HUGE smiles on their faces as Spider-man squared off with Goblin, Iron-man battled AIM and Captain American took on Red Skull.
And when I say they squared off I mean this was NO JOKE.. Motorcycle and high fall stunts, pyro, a man on fire! This is a live stunt show in the most badass way! The kids were eating it up but genuinely I was SO impressed. Also it’s worth pointing out that Spider-man, The Avengers and the X-Men are all in the mix together, something because of licensing you’re not going to see in the movies.
If you’re looking for something to do with the kids this summer I HIGHLY recommend Marvel Universe Live, worth not just your money but your time!
