“In 1990, Kevin Feige and I were both at an all-day ‘Back to the Future’ trilogy screening where they showed films one and two and then premiered part three for fans die hard enough to wait in line for MANY HOURS, which we were. After exchanging e-mails with Kevin, we agreed that it was time to do this with the Marvel films,” said Chris Hardwick. “This Ultimate Marvel Marathon will be an experience that Marvel super fans will remember for the rest of their lives, just as we did with ‘Back to the Future.’ And getting to see Ultron first? What true Nerd doesn’t love to see a movie before anyone else? Marvel fans, ASSEMBLE!”
