Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark producer creating touring Marvel show

Next year, Marvel heroes will once again leave their comic book pages for (sometimes disaster-fraught) reality. Broadway’s Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark producer Michael Cohl is partnering with Marvel and live entertainment producer Hero Ventures to create a $30 million Marvel-themed touring production. Dubbed “The Marvel Experience,” it will feature dozens of Marvel characters, 3-D animated movies, a 4-D motion ride, and employ additional multimedia technology under a dome the size of two football fields. The production is set to travel to two-dozen cities around the United States in 2014, with weeklong stays at each. Described as a “first-person superhero adventure,” there’s no indication whether the cost of becoming a superhero will be a tragic event in your past.
