A high-tech exhibit based on The Avengers films is set to open in New York on Friday (30May14).

The Marvel's Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. will feature a replica of the S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters, which is featured in the movie, and will also include interactive presentations, including a life-sized, three-dimensional hologram of the Hulk and a flight simulator, which allows visitors to pilot Iron Man's suit.

Comic book guru Stan Lee tells the New York Daily News, "These were concepts that I had in my head and then these great artists... drew them and I felt that was the end of it. They appeared on a comic book page and they looked beautiful and I was happy about that. And now there's this fantastic exhibit that links them with so much science, it's overwhelming."

He continues, "To be able to replicate the experience to be in Iron Man's suit and to see what it would be like to fly. That really got to me."

Props from the movies, including Thor's hammer, Captain America's shield and Black Widow's costume, will also be showcased at the exhibit.
