OTTAWA – After much anticipation, Feld Entertainment, Inc., the world’s leading producer of touring live family entertainment, launched their most ambitious show in its history, with Marvel Universe LIVE!Featuring the most Marvel characters ever assembled in one production, this high-caliber arena spectacular puts fans right in the middle of one of the most electrifying battles between good and evil. This first-ever live Marvel tour made its 85-city debut in July 2014 in Tampa, Fla., followed by the world premiere at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center in August 2014. Marvel Universe LIVE! will be flying into Ottawa from Friday, July 31, to Sunday, Aug. 2, for six performances at Canadian Tire Centre. Tickets for Marvel Universe LIVE! go on sale on Tuesday, Feb. 3, at 10 a.m. via Capital Tickets.
Marvel Universe LIVE! will captivate audiences with an authentic and original story that brings more than 25 Marvel characters together on one epic quest. The story is framed 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, that has been shattered into pieces by the Mighty Thor in order to prevent it from falling into the wrong hands. With pieces scattered across the globe, Thor’s villainous brother Loki devises a scheme to clone its powers, inciting a threat that could not only decimate Earth but also obliterate the Universe.
To defeat Loki, Marvel’s biggest superheroes, which include The Avengers (Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor among others), Spider-Man and Wolverine, must band together to trek across the globe to retrieve and unite the Cosmic Cube fragments. As the superheroes track the Cube, they 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. These foes have no problem teaming up if it gets them closer to their ultimate goal of world domination.
