St. Petersburg, Florida -- Marvel super heroes and villains are set to battle it out next week at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.

The Marvel Universe LIVE! show kicks off a two-year national tour at the Forum with shows running from Thursday, July 10 through Sunday, July 13.

Actor Romeo Brown, who portrays the character Nick Fury in the show, says everyone's excited to play before a live audience. "We are ready for what we came to do—and that's to please all the fans," says Brown, who auditioned for the role in California.

Marvel Universe LIVE! debuts Thursday, July 10 at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.

Judging by the behind-the-scenes rehearsal video, "action-packed" is an understated description of the show. The arena production features battles between heroes and villains, motorcycle stunts, and pyrotechnic explosions. "It's family fun," Brown says. "I guarantee it; if you come or anybody else comes, they're going to love the show—because it's so compelling."
