Marvel Universe Live

Sony Pictures is finally allowing Spider-Man to cross over into Disney's Marvel Cinematic Universe. While the films are years away, you can see the webslinger fight alongside The Avengers on Sunday, March 8, when the Marvel Universe Live visits the Valley.

The Cosmic Cube is the source of ultimate power so, of course, Thor, god of thunder and flowing golden locks, smashes it. To retrieve the Cube's pieces before it falls into Loki's hands, Earth's mightiest heroes — including Captain America, Iron Man, and The Hulk — take on a rogue's gallery of villains. The adventure happens via stunts, choreographed skirmishes, pyrotechnics, and fabulous costumes.

The Marvel Universe Live takes over Talking Stick Resort Arena, 201 East Jefferson Street. Tickets range from $24 to $89, and the shows start at 1 and 5 p.m. Visit

Thu., March 5, 7 p.m.; Fri., March 6, 11 a.m. & 7 p.m.; Sat., March 7, 11 a.m., 3 & 7 p.m.; Sun., March 8, 1 & 5 p.m., 2015
