Nerdist Is Doing An Ultimate Marvel Movie Marathon On April 20-21


By now, you’ve no doubt heard that several of the big movie theater chains are running a Marvel movie endurance test of sorts, challenging you to watch every film released thus far leading up to one of the first April 30 showings of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Nerdist is getting in on that action too, except that its Ultimate Marvel Movie Marathon will allow you to see the new Avengers sequel even sooner.

Teaming up with Disney, Marvel and several other sponsors, Nerdist is holding its Ultimate Marvel Movie Marathon on April 20-21 at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood. Only 400 lucky folks will get to attend, and for the price of $70, they’ll receive a reserved seat, a collectible event credential, popcorn in a souvenir tub, Rice Krispies Treats and Cheez-Its (remember those other sponsors I mentioned?), meals and more. Chris Hardwick is hosting, plus there will be a costume contest, giveaways and special guest appearances.

If you make it through every movie, you’ll also leave with a limited edition poster and a chance at winning two tickets to the world premiere of Ant-Man. In her latest Nerdist News video, which you can see below, Jessica Chobot says it sounds too good to be true, but this is, in fact, happening.

You can order tickets online right now, and no worries: I’m sure your boss will understand that you need to take two days off work for this. Right?

Here’s the screening order and showtimes for Nerdist’s Ultimate Marvel Movie Marathon in case you need to be persuaded:

  1. Iron Man – 6:30pm
  2. The Incredible Hulk – 9:00pm
  3.  Iron Man 2 – 11:20pm
