The marathon started Tuesday morning with the movie “Iron Man” and ended Thursday evening, with an early premiere of the highly anticipated “Avengers: Endgame.”

The movie left Allana Colacchil of Attleboro on the edge of her seat, “It was a wild ride.”

The experience allowed fans to catch up on a decade of Marvel movies. “I hadn’t seen Captain Marvel, so that was pretty cool,” said Colacchil.
