“It will be truly thrilling to see Spider-Man team up with the Avengers at Marvel Universe Live! and I can’t imagine a more troublesome group of villains than Green Goblin, Rhino, Electro, Lizard and Doctor Octopus. The characters are physically and legendarily massive, so we have collaborated closely with Marvel to create costumes, banter and action to suit their iconic status.”

–Juliette Feld, Executive Vice President and Producer, Feld Entertainment

“Through the years, Goblin has gone through a great progression of change. Therefore he posed a challenge; we wanted him to relate to the contemporary Goblin but still with some of his classic flavor – the color and peaked angles of his past!”

–Cynthia Nordstrom, Costume Designer, Marvel Universe LIVE!
