UPDATE: While Marvel’s Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. was originally slated to run at Discovery Time Square from May 30 to January 5, 2015, technical difficulties have placed it out of commission for the time being, though it’s expected to start up shortly. We’ll update you with more information as we learn. You can still purchase tickets and get more information at DiscoveryTSX.com, and check out more photos from the exhibit below.
On May 30, Marvel Entertainment and Victory Hill Exhibitions launched Marvel’s Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. at Discovery Time Square, the same NYC location that housed such immersive experiences as ‘Harry Potter: The Exhibition’ and LEGO’s ‘Art of the Brick.’ This time around Marvel fans of all ages will be able to dive into this cinematic universe like never before by becoming S.H.I.E.L.D. agents and witnessing the science behind these superheroes through interactive activities.
Upon entering, visitors are given clearance through their own personalized I.D. cards, which are used to interact with sections of the S.T.A.T.I.O.N., and given access to see props, costumes and set pieces used in the movies.
“It’s pretty heavy science,” said Cooper. “I was talking to Stan Lee about it — when he had all these ideas back then, he had no idea how he could do it. But now with all the advances in science, there’s actually an ability to justify it.”
