Madame Tussauds shines spotlight on a real-life hero in honor of new film Marvel Universe 4D

To celebrate the launch of a new Marvel Universe 4D film, Madame Tussauds in the USA is shining a spotlight on strength and hope, the key characteristics of a fictional Super Hero, by recognizing a real-life hero from Make-A-Wish.

Madame Tussauds has collaborated with Marvel to create an exclusive new film, “Marvel Universe 4D.” The thrilling all-new 4D film experience invites guests to feel the power of their favorite Marvel Super Heroes in Madame Tussauds New York, Madame Tussauds Hollywood and Madame Tussauds Las Vegas. 

Jeremiah is an 8-year-old boy from Brooklyn fighting sickle cell, whose wish for an online shopping spree was granted earlier this spring.

Jeremiah and his family were invited to Madame Tussauds New York for a private viewing party of Marvel Universe 4D, featuring Jeremiah’s favorite Super Hero, Spider-Man. The incredible family received the red-carpet treatment as they arrived at the world’s greatest wax museum. With more than 85,000 square feet of interactive entertainment, the largest Madame Tussauds attraction in the U.S. was reserved exclusively for the family to explore.

“Wish kids like Jeremiah, kids with critical illnesses, are in treatment and going through uncomfortable procedures. It wears them down, taking both a physical and emotional toll. They fight through the pain and strive to just be kids again and part of their family. A hero to look up to gives kids the opportunity to see a hero who models the behavior that they see in themselves, battling against all odds and winning!”
