New York, Gotham, Mega City, no matter what your favorite superhero franchise calls the Big Apple, one thing is for sure, it's home to more heroes, villains, henchmen, and sidekicks than any other metro area in the world, and has been since the mid-1930’s. This one of a kind adventure tour takes you through the streets to see the homes, the lives, the origin stories, and of course the filming locations of your favorite superheroes (or maybe anti-heroes if you are a member of the Villains League).
From Batman to Spiderman, from the Fantastic Four to the Avengers, and even a weird time when Superman was accidentally in the wrong city, New York has been the backdrop for some of the biggest superhero adventures across all major Comic Book Universes. See the Empire State building, which has been involved in several superhero movies, and the Flatiron building which served as the Daily Bugle Building in the Spider-Man movies. Pass the Park Avenue offices of Batman Creator Bob Kane. See the gothic mansion of the Green Goblin from Spider-Man, and the United Nations building, where TV’s Batman from the 60’s defeated the “Fearsome Four” of The Penguin, Catwoman, The Riddler, and The Joker in the smash hit BATMAN: THE MOVIE.
You will get to step into the New York Daily News Building, which served as the “Daily Planet” in the 1980’s Superman movies. This tour also includes visits to some of the most popular NYC landmarks such as the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building, The New York Public Library, and even Grand Central Station. You will even head over to Marvel Enterprises Headquarters to find out more about the Marvel Universe and what the Disney Corporation has in store next to blow your mind, and perhaps level the Big Apple once again! Near the end of the tour, you will also have a once in a lifetime chance to step inside the super exclusive hidden tavern that has served as the secret waterhole, a fortress of solitude if you will, for comic book artists to gather and interact outside of the sight of the public since the 1960s. Check out some of the vintage cartoons that have been doodled on the walls of the bar over the years for a “super” surprise!
