Comic book movie fans geared up for tonight's midnight premiere of "Marvel's The Avengers" with The Ultimate Marvel Marathon at AMC Loews' Boston Common 19 and other theaters around the country.

A $40 ticket granted admission to the five movies that set the stage for the new release -- "Iron Man," "The Incredible Hulk," "Iron Man 2," "Thor," and "Captain America" -- plus the finale itself. The last three selections were shown in 3-D. The ticket also got movie fans all-you-can-eat popcorn and drinks. Take a look at a few of the attendees of the Boston Common event, all of whom said they would be staying for the entire event, from "Iron Man" at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday through the closing credits of "The Avengers," which should conclude around 2:30 a.m. Friday.
