AMC Theaters Announces 59-Hour Marvel Movie Marathon


Prior to the release of Avengers: Infinity War last year, AMC held a 31-hour movie marathon that covered the high points of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now, the theater is preparing to top themselves with an even longer marathon for Avengers: Endgame.

The 22-movie marathon--which will cover all MCU films, from the 2008's Iron Man up to last month's Captain Marvel--will take up 59 hours and seven minutes of the most dedicated Marvel fans' time. The marathon will begin on Tuesday, April 23 and continue through the week into Thursday with, naturally, a screening of Endgame at 5 pm, a full hour before other public screenings of the movie, which is reportedly three hours long.

Attendees will also receive exclusive collectibles and see exclusive content, along with a special concession offer.
