Meet the Local New York Winner who's moving forward in the Global Competition to star in the next Madame Tussauds' Marvel 4D Film!

Wednesday, July 17, 2019

Madame Tussauds and Marvel have launched a global competition for one lucky Marvel Super fan to star in its next Marvel 4D film animation, which will be launching across Madame Tussauds sites in 2020. The winner will be transformed into an animated character and appear in the 4D film with a one line part AND the winner will also be invited to attend the premiere of the movie at their local Madame Tussauds site.


The Marvel 4D film experience is an immersive attraction at Madame Tussauds, which brings to life the legendary Marvel comics using 3D film technology and thrilling sensory special effects, including wind, water and smell. The film has been created by one of the world leaders in CGI feature films and 4D attractions, Pure Imagination, working in close collaboration with Marvel.


Open auditions were held at Madame Tussauds locations in six cities – Singapore, Hollywood, Las Vegas, New York, London and Amsterdam.

After over 50 Auditions that took place at Madame Tussauds New York on Saturday July 13, 2019, one passionate enthusiastic fan stood out and was  chosen by the local panel of judges to move forward to the next round of the global search for Madame Tussauds' newest Marvel 4D Film star!

Meet Renee Frangione, better known as Codename Citadel, who blew our judges away in her amazing Black Widow costume! Renee's audition was selected to represent Madame Tussauds New York and will be sent to the Global Panel of judges who will review all auditions and select one ultimate worldwide winner!

"Madame Tussauds is a landmark. The most famous people in our culture are immortalized here. How cool would it be to be among them?", said Renee when asked why she'd want to be the next Marvel star at Madame Tussauds New York.

Renee defines herself as a huge Marvel fan! She reads the comics, watches the movies, and even cosplays as Black Widow for the non-profit organization The Avengers of NY, created by a group of Marvel inspired cosplayers who visit hospitals and make appearances at charity events!

We're cheering for Renee as her audition is sent to the Global Judging Panel! And we'd also like to send a big shout out to all of the super heroes that came out to audition for the role. We hope to see you at our new Marvel 4D Film premiere in 2020!
