For Marvel fans they have been anticipating this moment for over a decade. Avengers Endgame opened Thursday night and fans poured into theaters across the country.
11 years, 22 films and thousands of fans. Yes, Avengers Endgame is a film that has generated super excitement over the super hero series.
Here in the Valley, Marvel fans flocked to the AMC Theater and the Moonlight Drive-In.
“I actually didn’t think I’d be early,” Garrett Mattox, the first person in line at AMC Theater’s said. “I thought someone would be ahead of me because I was only 3 hours early.”
“Didn’t really have anything else to do so we just wanted to get here ” Garrett Hall said.
“Get front row,” Annie Drappo said.
“Yeah front row,” Hall said.
Some dedicated fans took their love for Marvel to next level.
“I was always a huge fan of him in the comics it was like his name says strange,” Christian Meizen said. “I never understood the character and the film adaptation blew my mind.”
“This is an Endgame shirt and it shows every person that’s going to be in Endgame,” Aleah Franklin said.
Young and old embarked on a tradition that was years in the making.
She did her hair like Black Widow,” Josh McGowan said. “I love it. I love that she gets experience all this like I did when I was a kid.”
“I’ve been a Marvel fan since I was a kid. I’ve owned probably about half of the comic books they had and then the movies came out and there was just no way I was going to miss any of them,” John Gibbons said.
Theaters have been preparing for the opening for weeks and not even rain could keep fans from lining up.
“I do not,” Manager of the Moonlight Drive-In Billy Shorter said. “Everybody has been waiting for Endgame for so long, they are going to come out and enjoy it on the big screen.”
Marvel fans finally got their chance to see how the story ends.
“If it’s a bad ending I’m probably going to be mad if a good hero dies,” Jeff Fisher said.
“If Iron man dies you will never see me watching Avengers again,” Ruben Sterling said.
If you couldn’t come out opening night and catch a screening you still have plenty of time.
Both AMC and Moonlight Drive-In will have showings throughout the weekend and unlike tonight they are not sold out, yet.
