AMC Theaters Will Host 12-Film Marvel Marathon Ahead of 'Infinity War'
Have a day to kill and $75 to burn?
AMC Theaters will be hosting a 12-film marathon honoring the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the April 27 release of Avengers: Infinity War.
Previous reports indicated that all 18 previous films in the MCU would be screened leading up to No. 19 (Infinity War), but an AMC spokesperson confirms to Heat Vision that's not the case. Here are the films being screened at locations in Orlando and New York:
The Incredible Hulk
Captain America: The First Avenger
Marvel’s The Avengers
Guardians of the Galaxy
Avengers: Age of Ultron
Captain America: Civil War
Avengers: Infinity War
So, favorite Captain America: Winter Soldier won't be part of it, but less-beloved films like Iron Man 2 and Thor: The Dark World are missing as well. Also absent: Iron Man 3, Ant-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Thor: Ragnarok.
The marathon begins April 25 at 1:30 p.m. at these locations:
AMC Empire 25 (Times Square, New York)
AMC Disney Springs 24 (Orlando)
The marathon is the second AMC has put on, as the theater chain also hosted marathon of Marvel films in 2015 before the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Back then, the MCU had just 11 films.
For those in Los Angeles, the El Capitan Theatre is also screening the Marvel Marathon for $100.
