If you’re still crying your eyes out about how Avengers: Infinity War ended, this live-action extravaganza on the Alamodome’s arena floor is sure to keep your mind off the fact that your favorite superhero was disintegrated only a few months ago. While all the superheroes might not be resurrected in the Marvel cinematic world in the future, Marvel Universe Live! promises to reunite more than 25 superheroes and villains for six performances — from staples like Iron Man, Captain America, Spider-Man and Black Panther to lesser-known characters like Iron Fist, Black Cat and Lizard. Along with appearances from the comic-book icons, Marvel Universe Live! prides itself for its pyrotechnics and special effects, motorcycle tricks, fight choreography and parkour performers who execute many of the high-flying stunts. The show was created for fans of all ages, but if you’re a 36-year-old nerd, don’t ruin it for the 6-year-old sitting next to you by exclaiming halfway through the show that the story isn’t following the correct Marvel timeline. We just might have to call Thanos on you to clear a few things up.
