Marvel he­roes and vil­lains fight it out - live

The Covington News - - THE WIRE -

NEW YORK (AP) — Marvel Entertainment, which mus­cled into pop cul­ture with comic books, TV car­toons and movies, is gam­bling on at­tract­ing new fans as it tack­les 3-D — but for­get the silly glasses.

A new live arena show called "Marvel Uni­verse Live!" — a first for the comic fran­chise — has be­gun an 85-city tour over the next two years, flood­ing stages with a dizzy­ing ar­ray of ac­tors and up­ping the tech­no­log­i­cal ante for the­atri­cal events.

"We pushed our­selves so much on this project to do things that have never been done be­fore," said pro­ducer Juli­ette Feld, who is a Feld Entertainment ex­ec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent.

"This show is ac­tu­ally more like an ac­tion movie than any­thing else."
