Play as Your Favorite Marvel Villains and Outlaws in “Disney Infinity 2.0”!

Recently, Disney Interactive and Marvel Entertainment announced that fans of Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes (2.0 Edition)will be able to walk on the wild side as three of Marvel’s biggest bad guys join the game.  Spider-Man’s arch-nemesis the Green Goblin and Guardians of the Galaxy rabble-rousers Ronan and Yondu join all of the previously announced Marvel and Disney characters in the popular video game franchise.

Green Goblin: Armed with Pumpkin Bombs, the brilliantly nefarious Goblin uses his Electro Shock Gauntlet to dispatch opponents handily in both Marvel’s Spider-Man Play Set and the Toy Box (2.0 Edition). Superhuman strength, spectacular jumps, and the ability to charge his bombs into more powerful bolas all make him a villainous force to be reckoned with for both symbiotes and Super Heroes alike.

Ronan:  Wielding the Universal Weapon, the ruthless Ronan the Accuser is an unstoppable force in both Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Play Set and the Toy Box (2.0 Edition). Cloaking, energy blasts, and superhuman strength are all part of the powerful arsenal at Ronan’s disposal as he vies to become the mightiest villain in the galaxy.

Yondu: From deepest space to both Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Play Set and the Toy Box (2.0 Edition)comes Yondu, leader of the outlaw crew known as the Ravagers. Whether he’s trying to outwit the Guardians of the Galaxy or face off against a squadron of Sakaarans, the crafty Yondu uses his whistle-powered flying arrow, devastating combat skills, and wicked wit to come out on top.

Disney Infinity 2.0: Marvel Super Heroes Edition is currently available on the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, WiiU, 3DS, Playstation Vita, Microsoft Windows, and iOS.

Marvel Universe Live– Coming Soon to A City Near You!

static.squarespaceIf you or your children happen to be big superhero fans, you are going to love Marvel Universe Live! The show brings together a team of heroes– including Spider-Man, the Avengers, and some of the X-Men– to fight against Loki and a host of other villains, like Red Skull, the Sinister Six, and more, for a total of over 25 of your favorite Marvel characters battling it out before your very eyes!

The story to the show goes as such: Thor, in possession of the Cosmic Cube (or Tesseract, as it is also known) decides to split it into four pieces and scatter them across the globe in hope that no one person will ever again possess the cube’s full corrupting power. But Loki, clever and dangerous as he always is, devises a plan to use mutant energy and one fragment of the cube to create his own clone Tesseract. It’s up to the Avengers (with help from a few friends) to gather up the three remaining pieces of the Tesseract and stop Loki’s march toward world domination. How will they thwart his plans in time? Check out Marvel Universe Live when it comes to your area to find out!

Marvel Universe Live, which incorporates impressive fight choreography, stunts, motorcycle action, pyrotechnics, and of course, the sheer thrill of seeing countless Marvel heroes and villains live on stage, is a blast for comic book and superhero fans of all ages! We saw the show last week at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey and had an incredible time, but don’t fret if you missed it– Marvel Universe Live is still in the area at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn until August 17 and Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale until the 24th. It’s also going to be touring around the country until at least May 2015; you can check out the full tour schedule here.

For more info on Marvel Universe Live, visit the show’s official site.

Also, whether you’ve seen the show already or are eagerly awaiting the chance to go, check out the show’s “Marvel Universe Live Marketplace” on Overstock.com! The shop allows you to get your hands on exclusive Marvel Universe Live merchandise from the comfort of your home. Overstock.com is an official partner of Marvel Universe Live, and as an element of the partnership has (in addition to the Marketplace page) set up an arrangement with the not-for-profit Wounded Warrior Project. Overstock and Marvel Universe Live  invited Wounded Warrior guests to attend the show in East Rutherford (with an interactive event preceding the live arena spectacular), and also made a donation to the Wounded Warrior Project in their honor.

The Spider-Man Play Set will feature a storyline which follows the Green Goblin as he tries to destroy S.H.I.E.L.D. once and for all. After capturing Venom to extract and clone symbiotes from him, he hires Mysterio to be his second in command and wreak havoc on the Marvel universe.

Once players complete the Spider-Man Play Set, the S.H.I.E.L.D. Hover Car, S.H.I.E.L.D.  Sky Cycle, Daily Bugle Building and more will be unlocked and can be used in Toy Box.

The Spider-Man Play Set will be available in retail stores this fall. Additional Play Sets and characters will be announced in the coming months.

Father’s Day Gift Idea: Tickets to Spider-Man on Broadway (NYC) Super Hero Dads Go Free for Father’s Day

Spiderman2I saw Spider-Man last year and I must say I loved it! I couldn’t wait to bring my son to see the show but at 3 years old when I saw – I didn’t think he was ready for it but now he’s turning 5 and loving all things Super Heroes and has been to 3 Broadway shows and loved them… So this Father’s Day we’re going to see Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark!

For me this was an AMAZING Spider-Man meets rock concert on broadway. Its truly an amazing show that will leave you opened mouthed at times saying Wow. I highly recommend this show… not just for us adults but I think you’ll have the kids saying “How’d they do that?” and “that was AWESOME!”

On June 16, for one performance only, swing by SPIDER-MAN with your dad and he’ll get in for free with the purchase of one full price orchestra or flying circle ticket for yourself.
