Remember how epic the “ultimate” eleven-movie Marvel marathon sounded back in 2015, or the 20-movie Marvel film festival last year where participating theaters screened only four movies per day? Yeah, not so much after this next marathon arrives.
At only three theaters (so far?) AMC Lincoln Square 13 (New York), AMC River East 21 (Illinois) and AMC Metreon 16 (California), fans will have the opportunity to experience a movie marathon like no other–AMC and Marvel Studios’ 22 Movie Marathon. Beginning Tuesday, April 23, this marathon has it all: Watch all 21 films from the Marvel Cinematic Universe all leading up to and including the latest, film #22, Avengers: Endgame.
We have no doubt that this will quickly sell out in any theater they decide to hold it. This is how good the franchise is, how much the best Marvel Cinematic Universe movies outweigh the worst, how crazy and devoted Marvel fans are, and how epic this could be.
The event will include marathon-only collectibles, and some sort of to-be-determined concessions offer. Plus Avengers: Endgame will be screened at 5 p.m. local time April 25, about 55 hours after Iron Man begins on April 23, and one hour earlier than regular public show times. Do you have what it takes to survive 58 hours in a theater?
Will they hold some kind of calisthenics or aerobics sessions in the lobby between films so viewers’ muscles don’t atrophy? Is this as good it gets, or as crazy as it gets?
And c’mon, AMC, why only three theaters?
No other details are yet available, including price.
And what’s the penalty for punching someone in the theater for snoring? (Asking for a friend).
