Got 29 hours to spare? Nerdiest is hosting an Ultimate Marvel Marathon at the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles a week before AMC and Regal theaters. Starting on Monday, April 20th they’ll screen Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Solider, Guardians of the Galaxy and then wrap the event on Tuesday, April 21st with an early showing of Avengers: Age of Ultron. How’s that for a movie marathon?
There’s also going to be a costume contest, snacks, meals and visits from special guests as well. If you make it through all 11 films, you get an exclusive commemorative poster and are entered to win two tickets to the Ant-Man world premiere. The thought of staying awake for 29 hours is already making my eyelids heavy, but if there’s ever a time to do it, this might be it.
If you don’t live in the Los Angeles area, you still might have the opportunity to see if you can meet the challenge and power through all 11 Marvel films because AMC and Regal are also hosting similar events – minus the costume contest and special appearances.
