Nothing even close to Texas, otherwise I would totally do this!

Only 1 question before I decide wether or not to partake, will they be on I-Max?

This sounds really cool. I know they've done similar things with other franchises but this is the first time I've felt really really tempted

Rockhead, this is only the initial list, it's supposed to expand to more theaters. My guess is they're waiting to see how advance sales go before announcing more theaters

$40 is like the equivalent to I suppose our £40? Thats worth it I'd say. All the excitement and buzz when your'e there and it'd be like a day out. Fair price for a great day. Enjoy it anyone who goes!

Sounds like my Christmas vacation.  I was laid up on crutches, and my sister had never seen any of the Marvel Movies.  We watched the first Iron Man, and then she wanted to watch the next one.  By the end of the next day, we had seen Iron Man, Iron Man II, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, and even threw in The Dark Knight for good measure!

That sounds like fun, if you can bear to be in a movie theatre all day.  I was a bit stir crazy, even on my La-Z-Boy.  :)

None by me - Northeast Ohio is Cinemark territory. Even if it was here - the AMC near me is a feet stick to the floor kind of theatre.

I'm in Baltimore, so the Tysons Corner in McLean is fairly close by.  I'm kinda torn between going to the theater and watching everything, or just watching them all at home on my Blu-Ray player.  Either way, I'm definitely checking out the midnight show of Avengers!!!!

I've also heard that Extremis will be making an appearance in Iron Man 3 and will be introduced at some point in The Avengers movie. 

Hopefully AMC will expand the list of theatres showing the Marvel marathon.

Wiseguy 3/12/2012 9:53:13 AM

Extremis would be real cool. Seeing Stark transform into IM instead of having robots dress him plus having him be truly a superhuman. Then again the film may only base it loosely on the comic' version. Either way that sounds like a winner.

 Hmmm...Paramus, eh?  ;D

I agree with Wise: the IMAX screen may be the deciding factor for me.

FrozenFear 3/12/2012 1:13:49 PM

Since only The Avengers was shot (or converted) in IMAX, I'm guessing the rest will not be. If Marvel Studios did do a post-conversion for the rest, tickets would probably be a lot higher then the advertised $40. That, and the IMAX logo would be on AMC's promo poster. Again, just a guess.

That being said, it would be a cool way for a Marvel fan-boy to get even more amped up for The Avengers. You're basically paying $20 to watch The Avengers in IMAX 3-D and $20 for the rest of them.
