In just a few more weeks, our family will be eagerly racing to the Moda Center here in Portland, for one of the most anticipated activities we’ve ever done — the Marvel Universe LIVE show.
I’m so excited, because I know this is going to absolutely blow their minds. Why? Well…
My sons have inherited their father’s ability to learn every detail about his favorite things, especially when it comes to superheroes. As a result, they doesn’t have one or two favorites, he has dozens. Due to various issues involving who has the rights to which character though, the Marvel movies can’t get them all in one place on the screen. But in this show? Every one of them will be making an appearance.
The Marvel Universe LIVE show features not only the headliners from the Avengers movies like Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor, but also Spider-Man, and the X-Men, as well as characters like Captain Marvel who have yet to make the move to the big screen, AND many of these heroes’ respective villains. It’s going to be quite the party!
Marvel Universe LIVE has the largest and most sophisticated flying system of any live touring show, and I cannot wait to see his face when Falcon swoops overhead!
In addition to the aerial stunts, Marvel Universe LIVE features incredible, up-close stunts by some of the best in the business, including car chases, motorcycles, and even people on fire. Yes, PEOPLE ON FIRE.
I can’t wait to hear my oldest try to figure out how they manage to pull all of this off. This will be a pretty big change from the last time my kids were in the Moda Center and watched college basketball.
One of my favorite things about this show is that it isn’t just rehashing the Marvel movies with live actors. Marvel Universe LIVE features a unique, authentic storyline all of its own that draws inspiration from both the beloved films and TV shows AND the comics where these characters were born.
I can’t wait! Can you tell?
