Video of the Week: Marvel Comic Characters at Madame Tussauds

Marvel Super Heroes 4D officially opened at Madame Tussauds in London earlier this week.

Spreading across three floors of Madame Tussaud’s famous domed auditorium, Marvel Super Heroes 4D brings to life some of the world’s best-loved Super Heroes through a mix of 4D animation, interactive themed areas and realistic Madame Tussauds wax figures.

The film is showing in the newly installed 284-seat 4D cinema. After seeing the show, 11-year-old Nathan Wilson from Ealing, London was suitably impressed.

“The film was awesome; the Heroes came right out of the screen over your head and you could feel the robots scuttling past your legs when they invaded.  I liked it best when the Hulk clapped and sneezed – even though we got pretty wet!”

Alongside The Invisible Woman (as portrayed by Jessica Alba), and Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), the new attraction also features Madame Tussauds’ biggest-ever figure: the gargantuan 4.5m Hulk.

Indeed, the stats on the new attraction are pretty “marvel”lous:

  • The Superhero figures contain more than 1000kg of clay
  • and 100 litres of oil paint to build up the right skin tones
  • The figures have a combined total of 50,000 individually inserted hairs
  • Each figure cost £150,000 to make

The new Marvel Super Heroes 4D is open seven days a week and entry is included in admission to Madame Tussauds. Book now
