AMC and Regal Cinemas are offering Marvel fanatics the ultimate treat: The chance to watch all 11 films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe ahead of the highly anticipated May 1st release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Consequence of Sound reports.

“The Ultimate Marvel Movie Marathon” begins April 29th with Iron Man and will run in sequential order over the following 27 hours. For the less ambitious (or more sane) Marvel fan, select Cinemark theaters will host a special Avengers double feature, with showings of the 2012 blockbuster followed immediately by the sequel.

Tickets for the mammoth Marvel marathon, as well as a list of participating theaters, are available on the AMC, Regal and Cinemark websites. A full schedule is below as well.

With Age of Ultron‘s release inching closer, Marvel premiered the film’s third trailer earlier this week. The clip boasts plenty of action and mayhem, as Ultron, the malevolent robot voiced by James Spader, schemes for humanity’s destruction. Thankfully, it also suggests that writer and director Joss Whedon’s patented comedic relief will offset the gloom-and-doom storyline.

The new trailer also offers a look at two of the latest additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe — Quicksilver and the Scarlett Witch, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen — though the clip seems to suggest they might be fighting against, not with, the Avengers. Also seen in the new trailer is a brief first look at the powerful android and fan favorite the Vision, voiced by Paul Bettany.
