While The Avengers has been busy knocking out records left and right on Earth, it's about to take itself to space!
Marvel Studios announced today that they arranged with NASA to transfer their record-breaking blockbuster film Marvel’s The Avengers to NASA’s Mission Control in Houston, which will uplink the film to the International Space Station (ISS), currently orbiting 220 miles above Earth. The film will then be screened for the space station crew’s exclusive enjoyment.
This screening continues Marvel’s collaboration with NASA, which began during principal photography of "The Avengers" when the film shot at the Space Power Facility at NASA’s Plum Brook Station in Sandusky, Ohio.
Louis D'Esposito, Marvel Studios' Co-President and Executive Producer of "The Avengers," says, "The studio is privileged to share 'Marvel’s The Avengers' with those up in space exploring the universe. A special thanks goes to NASA for utilizing their incredible technology to make this special screening miles above us in space happen. It is a screening that would make Tony Stark envious.”
If being an astronaut wasn't cool enough, now they get to see "The Avengers" like no one else has before.
