Straight from the pages of a comic book, Marvel's superheroes are coming to the Marvel Universe Live! show on a stage near you. Captivated by incredible motorbike stunts, realistic costumes, aerodynamic feats, superhuman jumping, complicated gymnastic routines, and a compelling storyline, any child or comic fan will love this new Marvel show.
momstown travelled to New Orleans with a pair of 6- and 7-year-old boys to review one of the premier shows before it comes to Canada. Our boys were in awe from start to finish.
A fresh change from other dancing and music stage shows for kids, Marvel Universe Live! is like living inside a comic book, complete with the real, live sounds, flashes and the kind of action one expects from a trusted team of comic-book heroes.
7 Things We—And Our Kids—Love About Marvel Universe Live!
1. The Gang Is All Here

All their favourite superheroes and supervillains in ONE spot, live, in person. We got to see Spider-Man, Captain America, Ironman, Wolverine, Black Widow, The Hulk, Thor, and Loki, to name just a few of the awesome characters.
2. Blasting into Action!
Loads and loads of action. Non-stop moving, jumping, shaking, booming—and not just from the kid in the seat next to me! You are in for a feast of excitement; soak it all in.
3. Action, not violence
Many people have asked if the show was “violent” for a preschooler. Overall, no, it's super action, but not violent. There is some physical fighting, but it's skilfully choreographed professional wrestling-style fighting (with each move anticipated, so there’s no actual hitting, etc.), and much more.
4. Lots of Wheels
Cars, motorbikes, trucks . . . They zoom, crash, flip, race up stunt walls. Vehicles plus superheroes? That's a bullseye success.
5. Powerful, confident girl heroes
Marvel’s show is not just all about the boys. Black Widow, Madame Hydra and Captain Marvel are examples of strong female characters with a take-no-prisoners vibe. The female superheroes—and villains—are not catered to, talked down to or rescued. No princesses or love stories on this stage—all the more reason to bring your girls!
6. Positive Storyline
Lots of good teamwork lessons, and it’s not just action. The theme revolved around sharing the leadership and power as a group, working collectively to achieve their goals, and being proud of who you are.
