Since the success of Iron Man in 2008, a series of films based on Marvel Comics characters has been released. This Friday, Joss Whedon’s new film The Avengers will be added to the list. But before that happens, Alamo Drafthouse is offering fans a chance to see how it all started. Both Houston Drafthouse locations will host Only at the Alamo: The Avengers Marathon. Iron Man and Iron Man 2, plus The Incredible Hulk, Thor and Captain America, will screen back-to-back, leading up to a midnight premiere of The Avengers. It will be the ultimate day for comics fans who have waited decades for someone in Hollywood to have the skill to bring the supreme superteam to life. Noon to midnight. Alamo Drafthouse/West Oaks, 1000 West Oaks, 281-492-6900. Alamo Drafthouse/Mason, 531 South Mason, 281-492-6900. For information, visit www.drafthouse.com.
