Marvel Universe Live!
Put Spider-Man, the Avengers and the X-Men in one place, and the result is bound to be something, well, marvel-ous. All the heroes from the famed comic book franchise are teaming up to defeat Loki once again in this two-act, live action performance. Look for plenty of special effects, aerial stunts, noisy explosions and roaring motorcycles. But watching Bruce Banner transform into the Hulk before your eyes may be the best reason to be in the audience. And it’s not all good guys; Loki will be joined by villains such as the Green Goblin, the Sinister Six and the Red Skull.
3 and 7:30 p.m. Dec. 26; 11 a.m., 3:30 and 7 p.m. Dec. 27; 1 and 5 p.m. Dec. 28. $20-$75. Gwinnett Arena, 6400 Sugarloaf Parkway, Duluth. 770-813-7600, gwinnettcenter.com.
