Marvel Teams With Circus Producers For Live Arena Show

Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark

Undeterred by the bad press surrounding "Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark," Marvel is sticking with the live-show game.

Billboard has the news that Marvel is teaming up with Feld Entertainment, the same group behind the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, for a live arena show featuring your favorite characters from the Marvel Universe. The show is expected to begin domestic and international tours in July 2014.

All that's known about the story of the show is this: "The world will be in jeopardy, and the Marvel superheroes will save the world."

"There's so much mythology and lore with all of these characters - it's like going into this treasure chest of unbelievable gems," said Feld Entertainment CEO Kenneth Feld. "There are almost unlimited stories and shows we can create off these properties and characters."

Across the aisle from Marvel, DC Entertainment has already dipped into the live-show arena with "Batman Live."
