Iron Man is coming to an arena near you. In a good way…even though bad guys do seem to love that whole arena/football stadium setting for announcing their plans for destruction and world domination. But either way, at least Iron Man will be there already!

Wednesday, Marvel Entertainment announced a partnership with live-show producer Feld Entertainment (Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey, Disney on Ice) to produce a live arena show with all your favorite characters from the Marvel universe. The program will launch in July 2014 with an 85-city North American tour and promises “character-based stories” and “state of the art special effects, pyrotechnics, aerial displays, and martial arts.”

In the press release announcing the news Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada said: “We are excited to collaborate with Feld Entertainment to bring millions of our Marvel fans around the world a new and authentic way to engage with their favorite characters and villains.” He added: “This new live action production will bring the greatest Marvel Super Heroes from the movie screen and pages of our comic books into a spectacular live tour.”
