Comic book fans don’t have to wait until the untitled fourth Avengers comes out next spring to see characters like Black Panther, Thor, Captain America, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange and the Guardians of the Galaxy in action again.

They’ll get to see them in Gwinnett County — and in downtown Atlanta — a few months before that.

Feld Entertainment announced Marvel Universe Live! will be at State Farm Arena in Atlanta on Feb. 17 and Feb. 18, and at the Infinite Energy Arena on Feb. 22 and Feb. 24. The show marks the live production debuts of Guardians of the Galaxy characters Star Lord, Gamora, Rocket, Groot and Drax, according to producers.

“Alongside Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Black Panther, Hulk, Black Widow, Wasp and Iron Fist, the Guardians of the Galaxy help fight the scheming, menacing and loathsome villains Loki, Yondu and Green Goblin,” Feld Entertainment officials said in a statement.

“Audiences will join in the quest that sparks new feuds with old foes, pitting student against mentor, sister against sister and brother against brother.”

Tickets for the shows at the Infinite Energy Arena go on sale Friday. Producers have not announced when tickets will go on sale for the shows at State Farm Arena, which was previously known as Philips Arena.

Ticket prices will begin at $25, and they can be purchased by calling 770-626-2464 or visiting InfiniteEnergyCenter.com.
