Marvel Studios and ILMxLAB have announced “Avengers: Damage Control,” a virtual reality fan experience coming to select The Void locations starting Oct. 18.
UPDATE – 11/18/19: Due to the success of its limited run, “Avengers: Damage Control will continue to be offered into 2020.
“We’re always looking for new stories and corners of the universe for our characters to explore. Now, after more than a decade of amazing support, we are excited to give fans the same opportunity: to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe,” said Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios. “Expanding how people can experience the MCU is something we’re always trying to do, and in ‘Avengers: Damage Control,’ we wanted to give fans the chance to suit up alongside some of their favorite heroes for the first time ever.”
“Avengers: Damage Control” will let Marvel fans step into the MCU for the first time ever alongside their favorite heroes. Players will be enlisted by Shuri (Letitia Wright) to test her latest prototype, Emergency Response Suits – created with a combination of Wakandan and Stark Industry Technologies. When trouble arises, guests at the Wakandan Outreach Centers will soon find themselves recruited into action, exploring memorable locations across the MCU. Players will fight to save the day alongside Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), The Wasp (Evangeline Lilly), and more.
Like ILMxLAB’s “Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire” and “Ralph Breaks VR” experiences, “Avengers: Damage Control” combines virtual reality with physical sets and effects like heat and wind. This immerses guests into a new world where they can touch and feel everything around them as the MCU comes to life like never before.
“The opportunity to bring such a beloved universe alive through immersive storytelling has been a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” said Shereif Fattouh, senior producer at ILMxLAB. “‘Avengers: Damage Control’ will be taking over multiple different locations at The Void for a limited run, including New York City, Atlanta, Santa Monica, and Downtown Disney District in Anaheim, Calif.”
“We’re fans first, and we all have our favorite movie moment, and favorite character,” said Dave Bushore, executive producer at Marvel Studios. “But to be able to mark a moment in time where you got to step into the MCU and meet them, interact with them, and come together as a team… it’s extraordinarily powerful. We hope people have as much fun experiencing ‘Avengers: Damage Control’ as we did making it.”
