Tony Stark’s Workshop Concept Art from Marvel Universe LIVE!

Marvel Universe LIVE! is a new live show that will feature the most Marvel characters ever assembled in one production, and details have now been released as to the show’s storyline.

The story centers around the battle over the Cosmic Cube, the source of ultimate power and one of the most feared and coveted treasures in the Marvel Universe. It has been shattered into pieces by Thor to prevent it from falling into the wrong hands, but his villainous brother Loki devises a scheme to clone its powers, inciting a threat that could obliterate the Universe.

To defeat Loki, Marvel’s biggest super heroes including The Avengers — Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk and Thor — along with Spider-Man and Wolverine, must band together to retrieve the Cosmic Cube fragments and unite them.

As the super heroes track the Cube, they will encounter some of their biggest adversaries including Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Red Skull, Madame Hydra, Aldrich Killian, Electro, and more in the quest for the very same fragments.

Whew! Sounds intense and a lot of fun to watch. To bring this plot to life, Marvel Universe LIVE! will feature aerial stunts, pyrotechnics and state-of-the-art show elements that will bring movie style special effects to the live arena show.

Here is a short video from Marvel detailing the creation of the show:

Produced by Feld Entertainment (who produce arena shows as varied as Disney on Ice and Nuclear Cowboyz), the show is currently scheduled for an 85-city 2+ year tour, starting with Tampa in July 2014.

A list of confirmed dates for the first leg of the North American tour is below:
