Maybe the closest thing we’ll get to seeing the glory that is “The Tragedy of Loki of Asgard,” the barely-seen play that graces our eyeballs for only three minutes in 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok, is the upcoming series of one-act Marvel plays that can be put on by high schoolers. At the very least, both Thor and Loki are among the heroes set to take center stage in one of the various one-act plays available for high school theater programs to purchase through the newly announced Marvel Spotlight.

Marvel Entertainment is teaming up with theater licensor Samuel French, a division of Concord Theatricals, to launch Marvel Spotlight, a collection of one-act plays featuring the Marvel comics characters of Thor, Loki, Squirrel Girl and Ms. Marvel, written specifically to be purchased and performed for high school crowds. The program was launched to showcase “beloved characters in situations relatable to young adult audiences,” according to Playbill.

Stephen Wacker, vice president of creative and content development at Marvel Entertainment, said of the program:

“Over the last 80 years, the Marvel Universe has grown to inspire billions across the globe by telling relatable, personal stories reflecting the world outside our window. With these amazing plays and this uncanny group of talented playwrights, we hope to give the next generation of Marvel fans a chance to bring those stories to life and explore what it means to be a superhero right in their own backyard.”
