Marvel Universe Live!, a new live-action "arena extravaganza" is coming to Verizon Arena next year. The show will feature "just about every Marvel Universe superhero," according to stunt coordinator Andy Armstrong. Watch him in this video about the production.

It'll be at Verizon for seven shows Jan. 8-11, 2015. Tickets, with prices ranging from $41 to $101, are onsale now through the Verizon box office and Ticketmaster outlets.

The show doesn't debut until July of this year, so there's no footage of what it'll look like. 

But this bit from a news release should excite you if you're a comic geek or the parent of one. Ok, ok, it excites me.

Marvel Universe LIVE! launches new innovations in set design, aerial stunts, pyrotechnics and state-of-the-art show elements that bring movie style special effects to the live entertainment arena. Audiences will see the awe-inspiring world of Super Heroes come to life before their eyes with a dynamic cast comprised of some of the industry’s most talented stunt performers. Utilizing their talents and aided by a unique combination of never before seen arena mechanics some of Marvel’s mightiest will come to life with profound results. These true-to-comic creations will be supported by innovative lighting design and transformative 3D projection that will take the audience on a journey around the globe with these timeless characters. To support this massive undertaking, Marvel Universe LIVE! will not only utilize the entire arena floor, but also perform within a multilevel aerial space creating a unique experience that puts audiences right in the middle of the action in ways they could only dream about prior.
