Staples Center was home to The World Premiere of Marvel Universe LIVE! Age of Heros. We could feel the excitement when walking up to the entrance. Families were in matching Super Hero T-Shirts, kids were in full costume and fresh popcorn aroma filled the air. If you’ve ever experienced a FELD Entertainment event you know that they are the best at covering every detail of the show and submerging you into a completely different world. There were many opportunities for your imagination to run wild. This happened the day before the opening show for us. We were behind the scenes with several local SoCal-based performers who portray Marvel’s iconic Super Heroes including Kevin Myrick (“Doctor Strange”), Hilary Kadoya (“Rocket Racoon”), Kyle Murillo (“Spider-Man”), David Kinne (“Bruce Banner”) and more! A memorable moment for us was when we were learning first-hand some of the incredible stunt moves used in the show from the athletic performers directly and actually witnessed some of the epic battle scene demos live! There were also props and costumes on display that are worn in the actual live show!
A little about the BIG show!
Marvel fans were following along for Marvel Universe LIVE! Age of Heroes, the live, action-packed, legendary battle to defend the universe from evil. Life sized favorites were on stage and ready to defend our universe. Spider-Man, the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy join forces with Doctor Strange, in a race against time to recover the Wand of Watoomb before it falls into Loki’s hands. This ancient artifact would allow Loki to achieve his eternal quest to crown himself ruler of the universe.
This all-new show unites some of Marvel’s greatest Super Heroes including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Black Panther, Hulk and Black Widow against some of the most threatening villains. Marvel Universe LIVE! Age of Heroes will be playing throughout the L.A. Area from July 7–23. www.marveluniverselive.com
