With the Marvel cinematic universe again reaching a milestone adventure with The Avengers assembling for the sequel The Avengers: Age of Ultron, it's time to revisit all of Marvel Studios' films leading up to this point again. Back in 2012 when The Avengers hit theaters, all of Phase One was given a marathon leading up to the release of the first big screen superhero assembly. And now, with even more movies on the roster, The Ultimate Marvel Marathon is happening again at AMC Theatres and Regal Entertainment Group theaters beginning on April 29th and leading into the April 30th debut of The Avengers sequel.
Here's the poster for The Ultimate Marvel Marathon from Regal Entertainment Group:
However, this time the marathon won't be so easy to attend as the participating locations are very limited. As of now, AMC Theatres only lists this massive marathon as happening in Kansas City, New York, Anaheim and Orlando. Meanwhile, Regal will have marathons in Ontario, Atlanta, King of Prussia, and Houston. Seems like a weird assortment of cities, so maybe more will be added in the coming weeks. For more details on the marathon from each theater chain, check out their respective websites for the schedule, ticketing information and special perks that come with admission to this epic event.
For those of you who don't have over 27 hours to spend in a movie theater (especially when all these movies can be watched from the comfort of your home), there will also be more accessible double features for just The Avengers and The Avengers: Age of Ultron. So far AMC Theatres, Regal and Cinemark have announced double feature events, and you can click the respective chain to learn more about those as well. Frankly, as someone who had a blast attending the Phase One Marvel marathon in 2012, I'm a little disappointed that there isn't just a Phase Two marathon (without Ant-Man obviously). Otherwise, tickets for The Avengers: Age of Ultron are on sale all over the place starting today, so get’em while they're hot!
