Marvel Comics fans (which, of course, includes a guy dressed like Spider-Man) crowded behind the velvet rope today to see the legendary Stan Lee help unveil the new multimillion-dollar renovations at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas.

Stan Lee helps cut the rope.

The grand reopening, as Madame Tussauds is calling it, includes new rooms, brand new wax figures and all sorts of fun interactive features. Everything in the museum has either been expanded, renovated or is completely brand new. The renovations took about two years to complete.

New additions include the suite from the original “Hangover” movie and a Marvel Comics exhibit featuring several Marvel superheroes together in one room for the first time. Have your photo taken with Chris Evans as Captain America, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Chris Hemsworth as Thor (swoon) and more.

“These figures are more realistic than I am!” said Lee. “I walked up to Robert Downey Jr. (as Tony Stark) and expected him to talk to me. What a thrill!” To see photos of Lee with all the new wax figures, click here

Patrons will also enjoy watching a short film in the brand new multisensory Marvel 4-D Theater. Viewers of the film are poked, shaken and splashed with water along with “The Avengers,” who heroically save Las Vegas from absolute destruction.
