Marvel superheroes: Comic characters land at Maritime Aquarium

February 20, 2019

On the day after the nationwide release of the “Captain Marvel” movie, visitors to the Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk will be able to meet Marvel Comics characters Iron Man, Spider-Man, Black Panther and Captain America in special live appearances on Saturday, March 9.

“What a thrill to welcome four of the greatest superheroes, all in one place, all at one time,” aquarium spokesman Dave Sigworth said in a news release. “The Maritime Aquarium will be the safest place in America on March 9!”

The visiting superheroes will be the officially licensed costume characters of Marvel Comics.

There’s no show or presentation, the release said, just the chance for aquarium guests to pose for photos with these popular legends between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., save for occasional staggered breaks. (Even superheroes like to sit down sometimes.)

The appearances are free with aquarium admission.

Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk, 10 N. Water St. 203-852-0700.
