Marvel Entertainment and Feld Entertainment have teamed up in a new multi-year partnership to create live-action arena spectaculars based on Marvel characters and stories.
Feld Entertainment will produce the Marvel events, which will bring together characters like Spider-Man, Iron Man, The Avengers and the X-Men. Feld is planning to incorporate state-of-the-art special effects including pyrotechnics, aerial displays and martial arts into the shows.
Launching in July 2014, the production will embark on an 85-city North American tour before heading around the globe.
“We are excited to collaborate with Feld Entertainment to bring millions of our Marvel fans around the world a new and authentic way to engage with their favorite characters and villains,” says Joe Quesada, chief creative officer, Marvel. “This new live-action production will bring the greatest Marvel Super Heroes from the movie screen and pages of our comic books into a spectacular live tour.”
