You can’t keep a good superhero down.
A full week before The Avengers opens in IMAX and on movie screens across the nation on May 4, Captain America, as portrayed by Chris Evans, and Thor, as played by Chris Hemsworth, will be debuting in Times Square – joining forces with The Hulk and Iron Man.
With Captain America and Thor as the new arrivals, the quintet will appear as of Thursday at Madame Tussauds New York, in a new, multi-level, interactive exhibit, along with the film short Marvel Super Heroes 4D Experience.
According to Bret Pidgeon, General Manager of Madame Tussauds New York. “Marvel fans young and old alike will now have the opportunity to see, interact with and stand alongside their favorite characters.”
Just don’t stand too close to the Gamma Radiation Lab.
