Entire Marvel Universe Unites for Live-Action Tour


Marvel Superhero TourFile this in the category of “Childhood Dreams Can Come True.”

Marvel comics superheroes are going on a road trip and fans may be treated to something they’ve never seen before: the entire Marvel universe together on one stage.

“While no concrete details about what the live-action show have been revealed — we’re assuming there’s no ice involved — the production will involve Marvel Comics’ vast collection of characters, meaning it can deliver something movie fans may never see on the big screen: Spider-Man and the X-Men, Daredevil and the Fantastic Four paired with The Avengers. Because of movie rights held by Sony and 20th Century Fox, those characters are prevented from appearing in the Disney/Marvel franchise, but there are no such restraints for things like live tour,” Deadline said.

The Marvel Universe Live tour, featuring “state-of-the-art special effects, pyrotechnics, aerial displays, and martial arts,” will launch in July 2014 and hit 85 cities in North America.
