PhillyBite10Philadelphia, PA - This weekend, become engrossed in Marvel Universe LIVE! Age of Heroes showing at Well's Fargo Center in Philly.Walking into the secret world of superheros is an amazing opportunity, and getting a behind the scenes preview of what audiences will see this weekend is definitely a bonus!


Marvel Live 2Some of the people in the roles of our favorite superheros and villains were there, and they performed live demonstrations. The actors took time out to show how they perform some of their thrilling stunts, and even gave us the chance to try it out. I was mesmerized while they acted out fight scenes, how to take a fall, and even how to use some of the weapons that the heroes have to protect our galaxy!

Captain America who is played by Justin Jackson, stated, “With all the costumes, the pyrotechnics, and 3D mapping, it really puts you into each scene. You will actually feel the flames. It's like a movie but it's immersive; you feel like you're part of the show. It's about an hour and 45 minuets long and there's an intermission.”

And I agree. With just seeing the demonstrations and the fight scene, I already felt captivated by Marvel Universe LIVE! Age of Heroes.

“We have 3D mapping. It projects an image onto the floor and onto the background, so it sets the mood for each of the scenes. We have stunt fighting, motorcycle stunts, and lyrical acts, which are kind of like circus acts where two females are doing a simultaneous lyra scene. It takes place in K'un-Lun which is from kind of a Chinese environment, so we also have Chinese lions around,” Justin Jackson continued to explaining how engaging the show will be.

Make sure you have this on your to-do list this weekend, because as Caitlin Hutson who plays Black Widow informed me, "This is really going to be exciting to watch. There is Iron Fist and he is an acrobat, so he does a lot of flipping and fighting. He has a big fight with a cart, so it is very Jackie Chan style. So each character has very individualized fighting."

“We trained for 3 months in superhero boot-camp where we learned very specific fighting techniques and kicks and punches and acrobatics that we now bring to the show. It's a lot of fun!” explained Caitlin Hutson with a lot of enthusiasm.
