Assemble Alongside Earth's Mightiest Heroes in 'Avengers: Damage Control'

The all-new virtual reality adventure from Marvel Studios and ILMxLAB lands October 18!

Today Marvel Studios and ILMxLAB announced Avengers: Damage Control, a virtual reality fan experience coming to select locations at The VOID starting October 18 for a limited time. Tickets for the event are available now: www.thevoid.com

After Marvel Studios’ unprecedented storytelling accomplishments bringing the Marvel Cinematic Universe to audiences around the world, Avengers: Damage Control will let fans step into the MCU for the very first time and team up alongside Earth’s Mightiest Heroes!

Fans will be enlisted by Shuri (Letitia Wright) to test her latest prototype design: Emergency Response Suits, created with a proprietary blend of Wakandan and Stark Industries technology. When sinister forces intervene, guests at the Wakandan Outreach Centers will soon find themselves recruited into action, exploring iconic locations across the MCU. Fans will fight side by side with Avengers like Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), the Wasp (Evangeline Lily) and more.

“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 their favorite heroes for the first time ever.”

Avengers: Damage Control pairs virtual reality with real-world sets and physical effects like heat and wind. The result is a uniquely immersive experience: a virtual world that guests can touch and feel, bringing their favorite Marvel characters to life in a way that’s never before been possible.

“The opportunity to bring such a beloved universe alive through immersive storytelling has been a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” said Shereif Fattouh, Sr. Producer, ILMxLAB. "Avengers: Damage Control lets you feel what it's like to shoot repulsor blasts with your own two hands, suited up in Shuri’s latest technology. This original adventure allows you to go beyond the screen, and become a character in the story itself."

Avengers: Endgame received both critical acclaim and the accolades of fans around the world, bringing The Infinity Saga to a spectacular close. To celebrate the success, 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, CA.
