What to Expect at Philly’s Marvel Experience

Marvel Header

Like most of us children of the’70s and ’80s, Doug Schaer grew up wearing superhero Underoos.

He might not be thrilled that I’m sharing that bit of info with the world, but when we chatted, he used his childhood underwear preference to demonstrate how much of a fan he is of Marvel and the world of comics. The lawyer-turned-entertainment guru, along with his business partner Rick Licht, created the $30 million Marvel Experience, a massive, interactive show so large that it will take a crew between two and three days to set it up at Lincoln Financial Field.

It’s a one-of-a-kind show headed to Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field starting in June: The Marvel Experience opens on June 19th, and is going to be unlike anything comic fans have ever seen before.

The experience is being billed as “the world’s first hyper-reality tour” and features the first ever touring 360-degree, 3-D stereoscopic full-dome projection theatre. There will also be “a state-of-the-art, thrilling motion ride and a ‘training center’ that offers the opportunity for Marvel fans to actually become ‘part of the adventure.'” Read more »

HEADS UP: One Direction Is Coming Back to Philadelphia

one direction bomb threat

Yesterday One Direction announced it was adding 15 more stops to their On the Road Again 2015 tour—and Philadelphia made the cut. They’ll return to Lincoln Financial Field on September 1, 2015.

(The other sell-out shows were Taylor Swift, Kenny Chesney, U2, Luke Bryan, and Bruce Springsteen, if you’re curious.)

Eh, maybe when it got later into the game.)

NBC’s studio set for the game was appropriately Philadelphia-themed. The only problem: NBC completely butchered Philadelphia’s geography. Yes, the backdrop is supposed to be a stylized version of Philadelphia. It’s still hilarious. Let’s count the ways:
