You should have seen the boys’ faces when they opened the mysterious package that arrived at Babes HQ yesterday evening. Actually, you can watch my Instagram video clip for a taster of their reactions.
Even mama came over all ‘fan girl’ at the sight of the Marvel Superheroes suitcase, stacked with gadgets including Thor’s hammer, Hulk’s fists, Spiderman’s web shooter, Captain America’s shield and Iron Man’s mask. Just. Too. Dope.
The boys can have their toys, but I’m keeping the suitcase.
We were gifted these items courtesy of Marvel UK, who also invited us to Marvel Universe LIVE! coming up in autumn (cue more crazy yelling from the boys).
Marvel Universe LIVE! in UK arenas
Every little person’s (and big kid’s) fantasies will burst into reality at these live action shows, featuring your favourite super heroes leaping, spinning, bashing, flying and causing all sorts of chaos as they battle arch villains like Loki and Green Goblin.
Marvel Universe LIVE! stars a cast of 50 cast members, showcasing stunts developed by the teams from blockbuster Thor and The Amazing Spider-Man movies. Brought to you by Feld Entertainment (the masterminds behind Disney On Ice) this production also boasts the largest flying system ever used for a live arena tour!
I must confess to being something of a comic book nerd, having grown up with an older brother who was OBSESSED with the Marvel pantheon of kick ass warriors. Storm from the X-Men is still one of my icons (the graphic version, not Halle Berry’s drippy impression). I had a crush on Peter Parker and loved watching The Incredible Hulk get mean and green on daytime TV.
So I’m all over this show like a skintight suit. A note from the producers:
“Nearly two years in the making, Marvel Universe LIVE! has been a fantastically challenging and exhilarating journey. Working with our incredible Marvel partners, our heroic team has gone above and beyond with stunning innovations including a scientifically-tested full body burn suit, a live-action stunt vehicle that rolls over safely, astonishing new heights of fly technology for each Super Hero to soar in their own sensational style, and transformative video projections that completely immerse you into the heart of the epic action and story.”
