If your family loves Marvel superheroes, you’re not going to miss Marvel Universe LIVE! Our family recently caught the live action stunt show at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford NJ!
The night began with with an pre-show event where our family had the chance to experience fun super hero activities. Families dressed up with cool superhero props like Thor’s hammer and even Hulk Hands! After taking photos of E wearing the Hulk hands, We headed for the Marvel training course where she put on some boxing gloves and had the chance to practice “training” by fighting body opponent bags which are basically punching bags shaped like a body! She loved it and was really going at it. It was so much fun to watch!
After enjoying some delicious food and beverages at the pre-event, We headed to our seats for the show! Before even attending the performance, I read up on how much work actually went into the production. Did you know that there was an intensive eight month casting process that took place in major cities across the US? The amazing performers chosen include professional snow-skater and three-time X Games champ Phil Smage (Captain America), WMX Pro National champion and two-time X Games winner Ashley Fiolek (Hydra Agent), 2012 X Games Silver Medalist Louise Forsley (Black Widow), martial arts expert and AAU Junior Olympics/National Champion Kirk Jenkins (Wolverine) and long-time American Ninja Warrior professional course tester Eric Foster (Hawkeye). So now, imagine all your favorite Marvel superheros in one fantastic show!
As the performance begins we see Loki, adoptive brother of Thor. Loki is plotting to clone the Cosmic Cube’s powers which was shattered by Thor in order to protect its powers from getting into the wrong hands. Led by Iron Man, some of your favorite Marvel superheroes get together by joining forces for this epic quest to stop Loki and other Marvel villains from cloning the Cosmic Cube!
The whole performance had our family at the edge of our seats! The show was action packed and the stunts were impressive! E was so excited to see the motorcycle stunts preformed and her eyes widened whenever she saw a motorcycle jump through the air! I was really amazed by the pyrotechnics and caught a really cool scene on my iPhone which I posted to Instagram! My nephews Jack and Mikey (ages 4 and 8) who also attended were hooked on every scene! They loved the part where Spider-man, Thor, and other heroes battled the Green Goblin and other villains in the head of the Statue of Liberty. We all enjoyed the scene where Captain America and Red Skull battled it out while on motorcycles!
Marvel Universe LIVE is a great show for the whole family. There is tons of action that will have kids watching in amazement and humor that even adults will enjoy. The whole story line is incredibly entertaining! I highly recommend the show for all ages, young and old because everyone will have a good time!
