Meeting Marvel Universe Live Super Heroes at the Disney Store


If you have young children like me you’re probably aware of the characters from Marvel Universe. Both my children have their favourite characters so I was pretty excited to receive an invitation for the family to attend a special event at the Disney Store on Oxford Street for Marvel Universe LIVE! Super Heroes Assemble – the spectacular live action family arena show.

This morning we headed off to the Disney Store to hear more about Marvel Universe Live and meet some of the performers from the show. The children had lots of questions and it was interesting hearing about the stunts they performed, their favourite parts of the show and how they prepared for such an energetic show. The children were able to learn some moves with the actor playing Spiderman, try out the latest Marvel figures in Disney Infinity, have their photographs taken with the actors and enjoy some quiet time with activity sheets.

About Marvel Universe Live

Bringing together the largest assembly of Marvel characters in a live production, audiences are able to watch some of their favourite Marvel Super Heroes step out of the silver screen and onto the stage – bringing the action to life right before their eyes.


Featuring over 25 Marvel characters, everyone will be able to cheer for their favourite, including Spider-Man, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Black Widow and more, as they battle Loki and Marvel’s most sinister villains in a live, action-packed arena performance for the whole family. It’s being hailed as the most technically advanced live show ever, with cutting-edge special effects, pyrotechnics, aerial stunts, martial arts, motorcycles and more.

Marvel Universe LIVE! begins its quest across the UK on Wednesday 7th September 2016 at Motorpoint Arena Nottingham, before visiting The 02 in London; Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham; the SSE Hydro Arena in Glasgow; Sheffield Arena and Manchester Arena. Following epic demand for tickets since they went on sale in February, the spectacular live action family arena show has recently added a THIRD batch of extra dates to its UK tour. Tickets are available from the Marvel Universe LIVE! website at:

A huge thank you to Disney for inviting us to meet the actors, find out more about Marvel Universe LIVE! and our amazing goody bags!
