Marvel Studios has released a teaser trailer for Avengers: Damage Control, a new VR experience developed by ILMxLAB, launching exclusively at The VOID locations this month.
Today, Marvel and ILMxLAB made waves with the announcement of Avengers: Damage Control, a new virtual-reality experience that will allow Marvel fans to fight alongside their favorite heroes. That said, since the announcement, fans have been dissecting the trailer and speculating over it, and some are convinced Marvel is getting ready to make Shuri Ironheart. Whether this is true or not, who knows. For now, it’s nothing more than a theory, but many are convinced the experience will link with the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the Princess of Wakanda will become Ironheart in the MCU.
Letitia Wright’s Shuri appears in the trailer, and the VR experience will also feature the voices of Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly and more. Avengers: Damage Control is launching at The VOID locations on October 18. Check out the teaser trailer below.
For those that don’t know: Ironheart, in the comics, is Riri Williams. After Tony Stark can’t continue on as Iron Man, many try to step in and fill his shoes, but it’s Riri Williams as Ironheart who gains the most attention and traction, and ultimately it is she who succeeds Stark. Meanwhile, Shuri is the Princess of Wakanda, daughter of T’Chaka and Ramonda, and the leader of the Wakandan Design Group in the MCU. She’s an innovator responsible for creating Wakanda’s modern technology, and now some speculating Marvel fans think she will go onto create the Ironheart suit and assume the mantle of the character in the MCU. Again, whether this will happen, who knows, but some fans are pretty convinced it’s exactly what Marvel has up its sleeve.
Per VentureBeat, tickets for Avengers: Damage Control cost $40 per person and the VR experience is only 15 minutes long, plus another 15 minutes of onboarding and exit time. The VOID has plans to expand to 25 locations over the next two years, so if Avengers: Damage Control isn’t available anywhere near you at the moment, it may well be in the future.
