Marvel fans in Brisbane, rejoice! Marvel fans around Australia, book your flights and buy your tickets because Brisbane’s Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA) is hosting the world’s first Marvel exhibit in 2017. The Marvel: Creating the Cinematic Universe exhibition will run from May to September 2017, giving fans plenty of time to go and gawk at the 300 props, clothing and original artwork that will be on display.
The displayed props will feature content from films such as Guardians of the Galaxy, Ant-Man, Iron Man and Captain America. Basically, every Marvel filmed you’ve enjoyed, you’ll be able to see props from it. Thor’s hammer will be on display as well as Captain America’s shield, but I wonder if the metal Roger’s shield is made out of will get through customs (that was a joke, please don’t yell at me).
Naturally, the Premier of Brisbane, Annastacia Palaszczuk, couldn’t be more stoked that this is happening.
“I personally went over to the US and spoke directly to Marvel about the possibility of having this exhibition here… families are drawn to the cinema to watch the Marvel movies.”
I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve pretty much just booked my flights to Brisbane. No word on when tickets go on sale, but this will, without a doubt, bring a boost of tourism to Queensland. This may or may not have been the government’s goal. Sneaky as.
