In the past decade Marvel has been dominating movie theaters, showing off the best that the comic world has to offer but on the big screen. Between the glitz and glamour of Iron Man's world to the magical realm of Asgard, fans have been captivated by the thought that one day this would all be combined into one movie. Now we're just a couple of months away from the release of 'The Avengers' and AMC Theatres has a great treat for everyone.

On May 3rd, select AMC Theatres across the nation will be showing The Ultimate Marvel Marathon where fans will be able to watch five of their favorite superhero movies culminating in the midnight screening of 'The Avengers.' You can purchase your tickets for the event now at the select AMC Theatres that are listed below.
