Captain America 2 The Winter Soldier Post Credits Spoiler AMC Theatres Announces Captain America Double Feature

It remains unclear exactly how much casual moviegoers truly know about the plot of Marvel’s upcoming Phase Three entry, Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Fans of the comics have been waiting for the film with bated breath largely because of the way the sequel’s title character connects back to Steve Rogers’ past and the implications that his appearance in the film could have on future installments of the Marvel Cinematic Universe going into The Avengers: Age of Ultron and beyond.

However, even without that mystery being too heavily revealed in the film’s marketing materials, everyone’s favorite star-spangled hero is on track to be yet another box office behemoth when it arrives in theaters on April 4. After all, Marvel is coming off of the success of both Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World, with both releases demonstrating just how much audience goodwill (and theater attendance) has grown for Marvel Studios production since the world first met The Avengers two years ago.

Now AMC Theatres is giving fans a chance to whet their appetites for the next film in Marvel’s arsenal. The theater chain will air Captain America: The First Avenger for one night only on April 3 at 5:30 p.m., followed by the premiere of Captain America: The Winter Soldier at 8 p.m. Both films will be presented in RealD 3D. See AMC’s website for tickets.

This isn’t the first time that AMC Theatres has held such a super-heroic event to celebrate the release of a new Marvel film. In fact, the theater chain is making a habit of conducting these multi-film events in connection with many Marvel releases, including The Ultimate Marvel Marathon that ran in connection with the big-screen debut of The Avengers. Still, the way in which the Captain America sequel ties into its predecessor and sets the stage for events to come makes it an even more logical selection to refresh fans’ memories for where the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been and where it’s headed (not to mention its planned tie-in with ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.).

In any case, Captain America: The Winter Soldier has had an overwhelming air of positive buzz surrounding it from the outset, with Marvel already looking to bring its directors back for the inevitable third film in the franchise. Here’s hoping that the film truly lives up to the hype. Fans will know soon enough.

  1. I Hope to be there.

  2. Would love to go and be there!
    But since I’m not American, I guess I can only join along by watching First Avengers at home (-video) before heading to the theatre for Winter Soldier. Let’s share the hype! :D

  3. Phase Three? I think you mean Phase Two.

  4. Looking forward to Winter Soldier, but would never sit through the first Captain America again. Worst Marvel movie I’ve seen.

    • finally someone who agrees with me! the ending was awful. Red skull picks up the Tesseract and dies, wtf is that

      • i don’t think he died…he got sucked up into a portal or something

  5. What’s up with AOS Logo spin with Cap’s Shield on TV promo spots?

    • The reason they’ve included Caps shield is because there will be (at least) 3 to 1 tie-in episode with the film. It’s aftermath or even it’s aftermath and what’s leading up to it.

  6. “upcoming Phase Three entry”

    You mean… Phase Two?

  7. The double feature would be deficient if it did not include the Avengers; the direct prequel to Cap America 2.

  8. The first Mavrel Two in One film event, I hope there are more to come.
