Avengers Assemble! Marvel Universe LIVE is at the DCU Center this weekend ONLY (8/28 – 8/30)!
We were hosted by the DCU Center in exchange for this review, as always all opinions are my own.
Owen invited along his little buddy Avery to join us at the show. Dressed in their best Marvel t-shirts they walked hand-in-hand talking all about the Hulk. We grabbed them each a “kids pack” at the concession stand to munch on during the show. It consisted of a box of popcorn, Capri Sun, and a lollipop for $7.
Earlier in the week I had made them each a Marvel themed surprise bag for when we got to the show. I filled the bags with Marvel candies and toys. *Tip: buying souvenirs, candy and toys before an event is a huge $ saver. If the venue allows you to bring outside food and drinks, surprises like this are always so much fun for the kids!
The 90 minute, action packed stunt show combines a huge video backdrop with pyrotechnics, motorcycle jumps, car chases and even a performer engulfed in flames. Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and crowd favorites Hulk and Spider-Man are among the large cast of classic comic book characters included in the show.
The storyline involves the familiar source of power known as the Tesseract, Loki concocts an evil plan to rule the Earth with the aid of some of the Avengers’ greatest nemeses. Good vs. Evil, who will win? Will the world be saved?…
The boys didn’t lose interest, the high energy show had their full attention the entire time. Lots of “Awesome’s!” and “WOW’s” were excitedly cheered by the boys during the show. I would say the show is geared more towards younger Marvel fans, but us parents has a blast as well!
