As well as loving horror I do also love super heroes so I was happier than Bruce Banner at an anger management seminar when I got invited to the press day for the brand new Marvel’s Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. at ExCeL London.
Debuting a huge collection of Avengers movie-based props and interactive technology for a strictly limited time in between November and March 2019 it is an immense exhibition with multiple rooms all dedicated to your favourite Marvel characters.
Mixing displays, screens, props, interactive games and more it truly brings the world of the Avengers movies to life from Iron Man’s hall of armour to Ultron’s remains all with tons of information for hardcore fans to freak out over.
You can see my pictures throughout this post and below is a little video of the Zombie2 clan on our epic visit –
S.T.A.T.I.O.N. is an acronym for Science Training and Tactical Intelligence Operative Network, where guests will step inside the popular films and become part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe storyline, whether trying to lift Thor’s hammer or taking a sneaky peak at Bruce Banners Lab.
As part of their training, fans will get the opportunity to interact with props and characters straight from the big screen. The experience has provided a super-powered dose of science and technology by NASA to enhance the authenticity of the experience and pique visitors’ interest in real-world science and technology. With comprehensive educational materials available for teachers, plus supporting materials created by Quantum Victoria, it is a thrilling learning experience for high school kids to follow STEM pathways by amplifying the scientific themes and characters that are core to Marvel’s storytelling.
You can check out Captain America’s personnel file and exploring the cutting-edge science that made Steve Rogers into Captain America or spending time in The Thor Observatory – dedicated to Thor Odinson, King of Asgard and son of Odin, where you can even test your worthiness by attempting to lift Thor’s hammer Mjölnir, view Thor’s outfits and study the universe and its current parameters using NASA’s EYE on the exoplanets program.
Ever wondered what Bruce Banner’s Lab looks like? Why not explore the Bio Lab transformation of Dr Banners superior brain as he morphs into The Hulk. Also trainee agents have the chance to not only get up close and personal with Iron Man’s iconic suits of armour but also experience what simulated flight inside the suit would be like.
In a world first, and keeping up with the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe, London’s Marvel’s Avengers Station experience includes never before seen character displays on Black Panther, The Wasp, and Thanos.
