Marvel has been killing it in the movie industry lately. The well-known comic book publishing company has been releasing a string of superhero movies for their audience. Their latest film Black Panther raked in over a billion dollars since being released last month (even beating Tomb Raider with a haul of over $27 million!). From Iron Man to Dr. Strange, every type of superhero has been brought into the big screen each year.
Next month will be quite a show with the release of Avengers: Infinity War. It’s only a month until the movie premieres and Marvel already has a major marketing tactic prepared for the film’s release.
Calling all Marvel fans – Marvel is hosting a special 12-film marathon to celebrate the release of Avengers: Infinity Wars!
Two AMC Theatres (Empire 25 on Times Square NYC and Disney Springs in Orlando) will host the marathon at 1:30 on April 25th, where tickets will go for $75 per person. The El Captain Theatre in Los Angeles is hosting a screening on the same day where tickets go for $100 each. Listed below are the movies being featured for the marathon:
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
All of the films will be showcased, leading up to the premiere of Avengers: Infinity War. Marvel fans certainly don’t want to miss out on this fantastic screening.
This is a really cool marketing tactic from Marvel. Marvel is working alongside with AMC Theatres to get audiences pumped up for their newest film. What’s interesting is that this isn’t AMC’s first Marvel marathon they put together. AMC hosted a series of Marvel films back in 2015 to celebrate the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron (Marvel only had 11 films created back then).
I have seen most of these films from Marvel and thought they were really well done. Marvel does a great job of showcasing a cast of colorful superheroes that have a rich storyline attached to each of them. Each superhero is struggling with their own issues, but they come together to defeat the main enemy who is looking to destroy the world. The Avengers was an interesting way of weaving the characters and storylines together for one major blockbuster film.
Any self-respecting Marvel fan should definitely head to one of these theaters on April 25th. It will be another action-packed movie marathon that leads to another exciting chapter of the Marvel series. Check out the Marvel movie marathon next month!
