  • In case you hadn't noticed Avengers Endgame tickets went on sale yesterday. Many of the local theatres have now sold out almost every show for Thursday, Friday and Saturday of opening weekend (the only tickets available for now, at least around here). We scored ours in our favorite seats at prime time on the best evening for us, but if I had waited another day there would have been no chance. This is a phenomenon for movies like I have never seen. This has to be the most anticipated theatrical release of all time! Everybody got yours?

  • I'll probably wait until a week or two has passed before going to see it. Overcrowded theaters are just not my thing. Also they're saying Avengers: Endgame will have Stan Lee's last movie cameo. I am probably more emotional about seeing that then seeing how they defeat Thanos.

  • So now movie theaters are like your local comic book store in that you have to reserve your seat ahead of time, just like reserving your books months ahead of a shipping date.
    Of course that doesn't mean the movie/comic book will be any good? Very tricky.

    Same for me. I don't enjoy being part of big crowds.

    LOL... that is hilarious. I should list my Infinity Gauntley series to those groups and sell them for $9k. I'll list it as "Find out the ending before the movie.." If they read comics they'd already know that none of the heroes ever really die. Spoiler alert: It's comics. They all come back. Marvel/Disney won't risk losing their cash cows. All of this is about as dramatic as the end scene to Batman vs Superman, when Superman dies. Maybe for moviegoers it was a surprise but we all knew he was going to come back (just like in comics) in Justice League. Big whoop.

  • There were 13 watchers on that $5k ticket auction. Insane!

  • Wow, I wish I knew people were that gullible to pay thousands for a ticket. I sure would have camped out (if need be) and scored the entire center row!
    I definitely want to see it, but not in a hurry to fight for a ticket, nor pay anything above the normal cost...and in the same boat with Rapha1978 and logerine....I would rather wait a few weeks and have a virtually uncrowded theater and not have to worry about interruptions.
    People want to know. How can I live like this? The risks? The times I've descended into madness? The times I've died? How can I live like this? How could I live any other way?
