New global touring productions to bring characters and stories to life.

Marvel and Feld team to create Marvel Universe Live

Marvel Entertainment is joining forces with Feld Entertainment to create a series of live action spectaculars.

The multi-year agreement will see Feld produce live Marvel touring events in the US and internationally.

Launching in July 2014, a new production of Marvel character-based stories will be coupled with state of the art special effects, pyrotechnics, aerial displays, martial arts and other show elements to introduce audiences to the Marvel Universe.

The production will embark on an 85-city North American tour, before heading around the world.

"This collaboration with Marvel is a tremendous milestone for our business that will give us access to some of the most iconic and revered Super Heroes ever created," said Kenneth Feld, chairman and CEO of Feld Entertainment.

Sean Haran, VP of business development at Marvel Studios, added: "Feld Entertainment has the experience and expertise to showcase our characters like no other company and bring them to audiences everywhere."
