Please note: there are minor SPOILERS in this post for the Captain America movies, including Civil War.
After three epic events with Disney at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood, the Nerdist Movie Marathon feels like it’s become a time-honored tradition in just two short years. Because what better way to celebrate the films and characters you love than by gathering together with your fellow fans, dressing up in cosplay, participating in raffles and giveaways, and watching the stars of the movies you love introduce them with your ol’ pals at Nerdist? We began the tradition last year with The Ultimate Marvel Movie Marathon, brainchild of Kevin Feige and Chris Hardwick, who both have fond memories of the Back to the Future marathon they attended in the ’80s. Last May, we watched all 11 films from the Marvel Cinematic Universe leading up to Avengers: Age of Ultron. In December, we reunited for all six Star Wars films before The Force Awakens. And last week, we celebrated the release of Captain America: Civil War with all four Cap-centric films.
Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely kicked things off with Captain America: The First Avenger, introduced by our own Malik Forte, and poked a little fun at their competitors. Next up was Buffy and Angel alum, Alexis Denisof, with Rachel Heine (me!) to introduce The Avengers and choose a side once and for all: Team Cap or Team Iron Man? At Age of Ultron, Jessica Chobot hung out with the man who started it all, Stan Lee, ever the charmer. And to close out the night, our own Chris Hardwick surprised audiences with the Winter Soldier himself, Sebastian Stan, who teased taking up Captain America’s mantle!
Take a look at the highlights in the video above, don’t miss our breakdown of Sebastian Stan’s comments on Nerdist News, and let us know what other types of movie marathons you’d like to see us host in the comments.[brightcove video_id=”4882072803001″ brightcove_account_id=”3653334524001″ brightcove_player_id=”2bfa565b-5412-4cfd-9211-6269880b8a5e”]
