During the Nerdist panel at WonderCon in Anaheim this weekend, CEO Chris Hardwick announced that Nerdist Industries will present “The Ultimate Marvel Marathon” at Hollywood’s legendary El Capitan Theatre — brought to audiences by Cheez-It and Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Treats. The event will screen all 11 films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, culminating with the shiny new adventure Avengers: Age of Ultron. The marathon kicks off Monday, April 20 at 6:30 p.m. and wraps up after an 8:30 p.m. showing the next day.
Hardwick and other Nerdist talent will host the marathon, with help from special guests set to pop in throughout the epic 29-hour event. Attendees who see all 11 films will receive an exclusive, commemorative poster and will be entered in a drawing for two tickets to the Ant-Man world premiere. All guests will be given a commemorative event credential and get free meals, plus Cheez-It crackers and Rice Krispies Treats and other snacks, including popcorn in a souvenir metal tub. The screenings will also be interspersed with a costume contest, raffles and giveaways.
Tickets are $70 and are available now through elcapitantickets.com, 1-800-DISNEY6 or at the box office. Encore runs of the marathon will take place April 29 in theaters throughout the U.S. — tickets to these Ultimate Marvel Marathon events are available through Fandango.
