The Franklin Institute Will Be Hosting a Marvel Super Hero Exhibit
We doubt it’s a coincidence that this April both Marvel’s Infinity Wars 2 and the new Marvel exhibit at The Franklin Institute are both debuting in April. That’s right just in time to get you hyped for the flick, the new exhibit is a must-see for all comic book junkies.
Opening April 13, Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes will feature more than 300 artifacts, including some of Marvel’s most iconic and sought-after pages, costumes, and props. Spectacular artifacts to thrill both avid collectors, and casual fans—while immersive set pieces, soundscapes, and interactive elements bring the comic book world to life!
The exhibition debuts during Marvel’s 80th anniversary year, and chronicles the story of Marvel and its influence on visual culture, while also uncovering the narratives of individual characters such as Captain America, Spider-Man, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and Doctor Strange. Tickets are $35 for adults and $31 for children.
Exhibit Highlights Include:
• A fully immersive design with life-size scenes straight from the comic world.
• Rare, hand-drawn images of iconic heroes such as Spider-Man, Black Panther, and Captain America—by the artists who first designed them.
• Concept sketches, props, and costumes celebrating the 10th anniversary of Marvel Studios.
• Interactive elements including the opportunity to travel through the mysterious mirror dimension of Doctor Strange, digitally transform into Iron Man, and pose for selfies alongside life-size representations of Black Panther, Spider-Man, and other iconic Marvel characters.
