Marvel Universe LIVE!
Last night, we also went to the opening night reception and performance for the new Marvel Universe LIVE! at Verizon Center. The audience loved the special effects, stunts, and never-before-seen story in this family-friendly, live-action adventure. We snapped CNN’s Dana Bash, her son Jonah with a Hulk mask on his head, and The Avengers' Black Widow.
NBC4 Washington’s Angie Goff, right, wearing an Iron Man arm, is with her daughter Adora, her sister, Herndon High School’s Jenny Phillips, and her son Knox as Spiderman.
The show is at the Verizon Center Sept 4-7 and at the Patriot Center Sept 12-14 and 19-21. Here, Mill Corporation’s Jerome Scott, Sr. and Mystics color analyst Christy Winters-Scott, with their kids Jerome Jr., Brianna and Jordan.
The show has a great 3-D effect fight sequence with Thor and Spiderman vs. the Sinister Six inside the Statue of Liberty. The crowd was wowed when the normal-sized Bruce Banner transformed into giant-sized The Hulk in seconds before our eyes. Feld Entertainment produced it; here, its crew: Ashley Johnson, Nicole Gallup, Damon Pajak, and Andrew Lewis.
The show has 25 Marvel characters coming together in a new story with Spider-Man, Hulk, Iron Man, Wolverine, and Thor battling villains. We snapped the cast.
