Disney screens 22 Marvel movies in Hollywood leading up to 'Avengers: Endgame' premiere
HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (FOX 11) - Eleven years in the making, Avengers: Endgame is here! A theatre full of diehard fans were some of the first in the nation to see the last of the Avengers movie.
The El Capitan Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard hosted a Marvel Studios 22 movie marathon. For $200, Avengers fans could watch the entire superhero saga one after another, starting Tuesday morning
and leading up to the big one, Avengers: Endgame.
For three days, fans camped out at the historic theatre, as part of the sold-out event. Theatre staff provided phone recharging stations and free coffee and food to help keep people fed and awake but when needed, fans napped in the aisles.
Fans could also check out the display of the actual costumes worn by the stars and the props used in the film on the theatre's lower level.
Avengers: Endgame Directors Anthony and Joe Russo, Marvel President Kevin Feigi, composer Alan Silvestri and others from the creative team surprised fans on stage right before the big showing.
"Any favorite story that you have, your hope is that the best part of the story is the ending, so that was our mission, said Director Anthony Russo to fans.
Mission accomplished, according to tonight's fans who got to be part of history.
"We know this film will be a global phenomenon and these fans are really getting to see it first," said Disney and El Capitan Theatre Spokeswoman Jessica Bernard. "The 5 p.m. showing is the first time in the nation, outside of the world premiere has seen the movie. So it's very exciting and after this, the whole world can see it. We can't wait!"
