AMC recently announced that select theaters will be hosting the The Ultimate Marvel Marathon to celebrate the opening of The Avengers, a 12-plus hour movie marathon encompassing the entire "Marvel Cinematic Universe" of movies — Iron Man, Iron Man 2, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, and The Avengers — for only $40.
Those die-hard comic book movie fans who "assemble" for the marathon will be rewarded with a limited edition poster featuring one of The Avengers characters. It's unknown how many different posters there will be in total, but three character posters have been released online so far and they feature Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Captain America (Chris Pine), and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.).
The Avengers was written and directed by Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Dollhouse). The plot revolves around the return of Loki (Tom Hiddleston) — Thor's (Chris Hemsworth) villainous adopted brother, who disappeared into the void at the end of Thor but turned up on Earth in a post-credits scene — and his plot to take over the world. The cast includes Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Clark Gregg as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Coulson, Cobie Smulders S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Maria Hill, Samuel L. Jackson as S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Nick Fury, and Stellan Skarsgård as Erik Selvig.
