AMC Theatres Assembles "The Ultimate Marvel Marathon" for "The Avengers"

By Garrett Godwin

2008 and 2011 were the banner years of superheroes on the big screen -- Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), The Incredible Hulk, Thor (Chris Hemsworth), and Captain America (Chris Evans). 

Now, you can watch them assemble from the beginning with AMC Theatres` "Ultimate Marvel Marathon" all day on May 3 beginning at 11:30 am, which also includes 2010`s Iron Man 2, as well as the showings of Thor and Captain America in 3D: paving the way for the anticipated midnight premiere of The Avengers, also in 3D.

Directed by Joss Whedon (Buffy, the Vampire Slayer and Angel), The Avengers was four years in the making, as S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) enlists "Earth`s Mightiest Heroes" to come together as one in fighting "the foes no single superhero can withstand". 

Tickets are currently on sale in selected AMC Theatres, so check them out at

The continuing list will be available this coming Friday.
