Now this is awesome. We all know that coming up in 53 more days, kicking off the looks-to-be-epic summer of 2012, is Marvel's The Avengers. Marvel has been building up, leading up to this superhero team-up, ever since taking over with Iron Man in 2008. And now AMC Theatres is hosting The Ultimate Marvel Marathon, watching all six Marvel movies leading up to The Avengers at midnight, on May 3rd, starting at 11:30AM. Hell yes! This reminds me of the epic summer movie marathons of past, like for Matrix and Lord of the Rings. Details were just announced on their blog, and tickets are already on sale now - grab 'em!
"Get ready to watch the greatest Marvel movie event ever held" on May 3rd! Experience The Ultimate Marvel Marathon with six movies on one epic day. Watch the heroes' stories unfold as they assemble for the midnight premiere of The Avengers 3D! The marathon will include showings of Iron Man (2008), The Incredible Hulk (2008), Iron Man 2 (2010), Thor in 3D (2011), Captain America in 3D (2011) and finally, The Avengers in 3D. This really is awesome, and I'm considering going, what a way to enjoy The Avengers midnight experience, damn! Don't miss out on the greatest Marvel movie event ever assembled!
